Lani Mercado applauds her son Jolo Revilla for masterminding a beautiful wedding—his own.
Jolo and Angelica Alita tied the knot on December 15, 2019 (California time).
In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Lani said Jolo was very hands-on with the wedding preparations.
The mayor of Bacoor City gushed, "Ni-level up niya ang lahat ng peg ng mga ikakasal. Ang hirap nitong pantayan.
"We’re just happy that he planned his wedding well together with their wedding planners."
The former actress particularly liked the location—the picturesque Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California.
According to Lani, it was Jolo's choice.
She said, "This is a perfect location for a wedding. Very intimate lang."
FATHER AND SON PRE-WEDDING CHAT
On a separate note, Senator Bong Revilla had a heart-to-heart talk with Jolo the night before the wedding.
The action star-politician shared a part of their conversation with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
He said, “Ang advice ko sa kanya, 'Alam mo na anak ang pinasok mo.' Sabi niya, ‘Papa, eto na yung taong hinahanap ko."
Meanwhile, Lani said she attended to Angelica on the day of her wedding because her mother stayed in Mindoro.
She related, “This morning nakaalalay ako sa kanya kasi sabi niya she was anxious.
"So inalalayan ko lang siya, pina-relax kasi alam ko ninerbiyos siya.
“So sabi ko sa kanya wala man si Mama 1, nandito si Mama 2.
"So, Mama 2 will take care of you."
Angelica walked down the aisle with her three brothers, the closest to her, Francis, gave a message at the reception..
