Don’t be embarrassed to dream about your wedding –Vern
Blogger and vlogger Vern Enciso married Cebuano entreprenur Ben Lim on January 30, 2021 at Shangrila’s Mactan Resort and Spa. The ceremony was held at the resort’s iconic Ocean Pavilion, styled by Gideon Hermosa, followed by an garden dinner reception. The bride wore a dress by Mark Bumgarner and inspired by her style icon’s civil wedding dress, Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw.
Ben and Vern revealed their engagement in September and Ben proposed in July. Based on Vern’s Instagram account, the couple prepared a three day celebration. The bride’s sister and Maid of Honor, Verniece Enciso, also surprised the couple with an intimate yacht party before the wedding day.
Vern reflects on getting married during a pandemic on her Instagram account:
“I’m getting emotional because I get reminded every single day that not only am I getting an amazing husband to be but we are surrounded by family and friends who go above and beyond to make us feel special given the unfortunate circumstances. Being a bride during a pandemic is not easy... it may sound shallow to some but we don’t get the usuals.. however, what I really got at the end was so much more than what I dreamed of since I was 16.
To all girls who are single or not yet engaged, don’t be embarrassed to dream about your wedding. Manifest it to the universe and pray about it because all of it will come true in the right time.”
