Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia showed how ready they are to sail towards forever as a unit via the nautical-themed despedida de soltera organized by the bride-to-be’s family last April 14 at Casa Ibarra, Pasay City.
Making the party extra special was the arrival of the It’s Showtime host’s parents who came all the way from United States and the Sin Island lead actress’ relatives who are based in Barcelona, Spain.
It can be recalled that in his past interviews, the international recording artist declared that his dad and mom might not be able to attend his big day due to health reasons. But fortunately, their doctor allowed them to go.
Reportedly, aside from their immediate families, the intimate affair was also attended by their relatives, close friends, and a bunch of representatives from different media outlets.
Coleen took to Instagram to share some of the memorable moments of the fun and magical evening and expressed her gratitude to those people behind it.
“Thank you so much again to everyone who made this beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime event all the more enjoyable for us! We couldn’t be more grateful to have such a wonderful team behind all of this. I’m amazed by how talented you guys are, and how great you all are at what you do! I know for sure that we picked the right people,” she wrote.
After being mum regarding the specific date of their wedding, it was finally revealed after Billy’s friend and Pilipinas Got Talent co-host Toni Gonzaga congratulated them during their live broadcast last April 15.
“Nais rin naming i-congratulate at sasamahan na rin natin ng best wishes dahil sa darating na Biyernes (April 20) na po ang inaabangang kasal ni Billy and Coleen. We celebrate your life and your union," she blurted out.
Billy thanked her and their loved ones and stated his readiness to face the new chapter of his life.
"Sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa amin ni Coleen, we really just want to say thank you. And thank you, Lord. I'm ready for this new journey for me”, he said.
The lovely couple have been together since 2014 and got engaged in December 2016.
