Lorna "LT" Tolentino was a seven-year-old child star when Rudy "Daboy" Fernandez, 17, spotted her at LVN studios. He comes from a showbiz family, but he was not yet a star then. Still, he had pizzazz. He told the girl's uncle he would court her when she got older.
She was 14 and he was 24 when LT and Daboy appeared in a movie together for the first time. That was Leap Year Ngayon, Pipikutin Kita.
In 1983, when she was 23 and he was 33, LT and Daboy got married in hush-hush civil rites in Nueva Ecija.
Nine years and two children later, they decided to solemnize their union in a religious ceremony in Villa Escudero, the Filipiana-themed resort in Tiaong, Quezon.
Philippine cinema's biggest stars flocked to the far-flung villa to take part in what was considered the grandest wedding of 1992.
