In lieu of her dad, it was the singer-TV host Martin Nievera who gave KZ away in the wedding ceremony.

She wrote in her Instagram post dated October 9, 2020, "God finally made our 'Puhon' a reality... our families are in Mindanao and couldn't fly in.

"But our folks being the selfless, understanding, and amazing parents they are, encouraged us to get wed.

"Bittersweet getting married without my parents walking me down the aisle, but I'm thankful that my other dad, @martinnievera, stepped in to give me away.

"With only a handful of people and our families attending through zoom, we held our symbolic wedding under a 300 hundred-year-old Mango tree."

"Puhon" is a word in Bisaya which means "God-willing," "in God’s time," or "someday."

It is also the title of the groom's quarantine song released in June.

KZ and TJ's families were able to witness the wedding via the video conference app Zoom.

THE VENUE

KZ and TJ chose The Farm at San Benito—a popular wellness destination in Lipa, Batangas, and has been a "COVID-free safe haven" since it reopened in May 16.

The 300-year-old mango tree is its main attraction not only because of its age, but also for its strong "positive life-giving" energy.

Event stylist Gideon Hermosa and event planner La Belle Fete created a beautiful garden setting for the wedding.

THE KISS

When the pastor told TJ, "you may kiss the bride," he applauded, let out a celebratory cry, and stood there gazing at KZ, who looked like she was about to cry.

They held hands for a moment, exchanged sweet nothings, and leaned forward to kiss.

Hands still intertwined, KZ and TJ savored the moment.
