Remember that beach photoshoot engagement reveal a few months back? Well here’s another–Jessy Mendiola and Luis Manzano shared with the public their happy news a month after their intimate wedding. The celebrity couple was wed on February 21, 2021 and the newly-minted Mrs. Manzano first dropped a wedding photo on Easter Sunday.
News traveled quickly and more photos showed that Luis and Jessy invited a few guests to their intimate wedding that featured romantic shades of pink and wine red. The groom himself wore a three piece pink suit by Paulo Lazaro while their guests were dressed in varying hues. Jessy’s minimalist bridal dress featuring billowing sleeves was designed by celeb-favorite Patricia Santos and her heels by Jefferson Si.
In true Luis fashion, his vows begin in jest. He recites the words to Gary Valenciano’s popular song “Warrior is a Child” before joking that he had opened the wrong file. Jessy looks on and by the first sentence, already realizes that Luis is being his usual goofy self. Luis says in his vows: “As we take this step today, I want to promise you that I will love you each day that comes. Even those days na pareho tayong ‘di kamahal-mahal, I will choose to love…I promise to be your rock when you’re weak, and to put a smile on your face even on the darkest of days.”
Jessy says in her vows: “I will protect you and I promise that if you grow weak, I will be there to fight your battles for you… Today is the beginning of our journey, our lives together. I choose to spend today and all of my tomorrows with you.”
Luis and Jessy worked with the wedding industry’s best of the best, including Gideon Hermosa, who brought the romance to the venue with his styling. Jessy writes in her Instagram post for Gideon: “We weren’t expecting anything grand or out of this world, and yet the set-up was more than what we expected. It was breathtaking. We requested Gideon to keep it simple and clean, and he delivered. The mix of pink and red roses was enough to add color to the greenery of The Farm at San Benito. We are ever so grateful to Gideon for coming up with a beautiful design on such short notice. He kept everything perfect down to the last detail. He even gave me tissue to hide under my bouquet, to wipe my tears just in case I cry. ? We love you @gideonhermosa”
She also wrote their heartfelt thanks to their documentation team, Team Pat Dy, Caliber King and Bob Nicolas. She writes, “Thank you @teampatdy, @bobnicolas and team for capturing beautiful moments during our special day. I was so nervous while walking, I didn’t notice that I was already walking too fast Somehow @caliberking was able to whisper in front of me while taking my photos, and said “walk slowly and savour the moment. This is your moment.” Thank you, Cal! I really needed that. ?
To @bobnicolas and team, thank you for sharing your talent with us. Our wedding video is everything but perfect. We are forever grateful.”
Luis and Jessy only put together their intimate wedding in three weeks, and if it we were to base it on their photos and videos, it’s quite an encouragement to all brides and grooms planning their wedding! A picture perfect wedding can be done with the right people even with a small amount of time.
Based on the recent celebrity trend, we think we’re going to see more wedding and engagement reveals as well as thematic dressing for intimate wedding guests.
