The Christian wedding of long-time domestic partners Carmina Villaroel and Zoren Legaspi yesterday afternoon at Fernbrooks Gardens in Alabang, Muntinglupa was one of a kind. The groom proposed to the bride and when she accepted, they immediately tied the knot.
Although Carmina had expressed she would like to get married before 2012 ends, she was clueless she would have it soon. The two-month preparations by Zoren and twins Cassy and Mavy as assisted by the Legaspi and villaroel families with family’s manager, Dolor Guevarra, were kept secret from her.
Carmina was made to believe to attend a shoot of a family endorsement. Invited guests were told to keep details highly confidential. Carmina arrived at 3:00 p.m. and went straight for make-up. It had a hidden camera that flashed the proceedings on an outside screen. To complete the cover-up, Boy was there to interview them. A flash mob led by Cassy and Mavy as choreographed by G-Force took place before the proposal.
Carmina wore a white wedding dress designed by Paul Cabral with sparkling chandelier earrings. Zoren wore a black tuxedo. Cassy and Mavy wore identical wear as their parents.
Principal Sponsors were Felix Ang, Eric Quizon, John Concepcion, Megastar Sharon Cuneta, Grace Poe Llamanzares, and Cory Vidanes.
Among the guests were Susan Roces, Boy Abunda, Gelli de Belen, Maricel Soriano, Mother Lily Monteverde, Candy Pangilinan, Joey Marquez, Zaijian Jaranilla, Amy Austria, and Tirso & Lyn Cruz.
This sure, the wedding surprised the bride, leading Zoren to quip in an interview, “500 years pogi points yan!”
