Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria's characters exchange wedding vows; seal their love with three kisses

Be Careful With My Heart star Jodi Sta. Maria wore an Avel Bacudio gown for the "wedding ceremony" binding her and love-team partner Richard Yap. Her character, Maya, promises Sir Chief (played by Richard): "Hindi kita iiwan mag-isa, hindi ako bibitaw at kapit bisig tayo simula sa araw na ito at hanggang sa pagtanda natin at hanggang sa huli nating hininga. Mahal kita." John Arcilla was cast as the officiating priest at the wedding.

Jodi Sta. Maria was a radiant "bride" as she walked down the aisle of Basilica de San Martin de Tours in Taal, Batangas.

The lead characters of ABS-CBN's daytime teleserye, Be Careful With My Heart, were married in an elaborate wedding ceremony that was aired earlier today, November 15.

Wearing an Avel Bacudio gown, her character, Maya dela Rosa, was all-smiles as she walked towards her groom Richard Lim, played by Richard Yap.

More popularly known as Sir Chief (spelled as Ser Chief, according to production), Richard's character was seen wiping his face with a handkerchief several times during the ceremony.

In a previous interview, the lead stars admitted that they felt "wedding jitters" as they prepared for the much-awaited nuptials.

Wearing a blue suit, Sir Chief was the first to pledge his undying love for his bride.

Of course, everybody knows their love story. Maya started out by working for Sir Chief as nanny to his youngest daughter Abby (Mutya Orquia).

Over time, the two developed a close friendship that culminated with their nuptials.

"I vow to love you forever," said Sir Chief in his wedding vow, " fulfill your dreams as you have fulfilled mine, to never give you any reason to doubt...

"To apologize if I make a mistake and to apologize even if I don't make a mistake.

"But most of all, to constantly remind you that is not I who is the miracle in this relationship, but it is YOU.

"Because you turned my whole world around. And I will be forever grateful to you: my miracle."

As he said this, Maya was seen trying to hold back tears as she listened to Sir Chief recall: "Because you found your way on that bridge more than a year ago.


"We had very different lives then.

"But that bridge brought you to me and me to you.

"It was just like any other night, except you came out of the blue, and just like that, my whole world changed.

"I changed because you were already there.

"Although you like to call me Sir Chief, I want you to know that it is you who will always be my chief, my sun, and my love...and I won't have it any other way.

"I will love you until death do us part."

MAYA'S WEDDING VOW. Through her wedding vow, an emotional Maya told her groom that she would never make him feel loneliness ever again.

"Richard, pinapangako ko sa 'yo na simula sa araw na ito, hindi mo na mararamdaman na mag-isa o malungkot ka.

"Patatawamin kita kahit na 'tiger mode' ka pa.

"At dahil alam ko, kahit bibihira kang tumawa, nakakunot ang noo mo, pag naniningkit ang mga mata mo, ang puso mo punong-puno ng pagmamahal...hindi lang para sa akin pero para sa mga anak natin at para sa pamilya mo.

"Pinapangako ko rin na araw-araw kitang ipagtitimpla ng masarap na kape kahit na magtampuhan tayo, hinding-hindi magbabago ang lasa nun.

"Gaya ng pagmamahal ko sa 'yo, hinding-hindi mawawala ang tiwala ko sa 'yo, at sa kung anong meron tayo.

"Hindi kita iiwan mag-isa, hindi ako bibitaw at kapit bisig tayo simula sa araw na ito at hanggang sa pagtanda natin at hanggang sa huli nating hininga.

"Mahal kita."

John Arcilla played the priest that wed the couple.


Even the TV series became relevant to the times when the officiating priest revealed that the "wedding gifts" received by the newlywed couple will be donated to typhoon victims.

As the closing credits rolled, Jose Mari Chan could be seen as one of the guests who performed during the wedding reception.
