After teasing us with photos and video clips which turned out to be parts of their save-the-date video, Kean Cipriano and Chynna Ortaleza exchanged “I do’s” once more on their church wedding held last November 7 at the Twin Hearts of Jesus and Mary Parish in Quezon City. They first tied the knot in 2015 through a civil matrimony.
Instead of having a grand ceremony, the contemporary couple opted to have an intimate ceremony, inviting less than a hundred guests on their special day who all conformed to the black motif. Unlike other weddings that are filled with colorful flowers, they preferred dried leaves and small plants as ornaments on their red carpet-less aisle. Not to mention that the bride looked elegant in an embellished grey gown while clasping a black bouquet in her hands.
As we excitedly browse through the picture-perfect memories as a lovey couple, let us tell you how their love has bloomed through the years.
They are definitely one of the #CoupleGoals of their generation because of various reasons. Perhaps mainly because they are able to keep their private lives from the spotlight despite being popular and they seem to help each other to grow as individuals while doing the things they love to do together.
For sure, many of us are dreaming of spending the future with our crushes but end up getting disappointed. Well, don’t lose hope because the singer-actor is now living his dream of ending up with his crush.
In an article published in PUSH, Kean enthusiastically admitted that he’s been a fan of his wife since he was still a kid. Chynna, who is four years older than him, has been in the business for 16 years now and known for her antagonist roles. On the other hand, Kean rose to stardom in 2005 as the frontman of rock band Callalily.
When he was fourth year highschool, his cousin who works as a stylist at a rival network asked him if he wanted to take Chynna as his date for their graduation ball. However, it didn’t push through. Thus, she just gave him a wallet-size picture of her with a dedication at the back which he kept in his wallet.
However, it seems that the universe conspired for their paths to cross as they got to work together in a drama anthology in another network where they played as husbands and wife. No sparks ignited between them for they both had respective relationships then.
Their penchant for movies and music reconnected them and they got to work again after two years as Kean ventured in directing music videos with the actress as his assistant. They became friends and lovers later on.
During those times, both parties refrained from speaking up regarding their real status but kept on teasing their followers with their sweet photos affixed with cryptic captions. It was only in Tonight with Boy Abunda when Kean finally admitted their relationship.
Although they’ve been together in a short span in time, the couple couldn’t hide how much they love each other as seen in their social media posts. Their affair really did a huge impact in their lives, with Chynna unraveling the visual artist, poet, and musician in her – the inner personas she had kept for a very long time. *As a matter of fact, all the artworks, calligraphies, and the song used in their pre-nuptial video were all created by her!
Aside from art, it’s their beloved one year old daughter Stellar Leone who keeps them happy and tightly bonded.
Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Cipriano!
