Karel Marquez and Sean Farinas will be tying the knot on December 1.


Six days before her wedding to Sean Farinas, Karel Marquez posted more prenup photos.

Shot in her fiance's hometown in Ilocos Norte, photographer Benjie Tiongco captured the breathtaking sunset and cascading seas as the couple stood hand-in-hand on a cliff.

It was a poetic representation of how Karel wanted to define her love for Sean.

In an Instagram post, she wrote, "I will become one with my other half, and if he jumps, I jump. TOGETHER."

The actress-singer also wrote about the kind of love that she admires the most, that of her grandfather Bert and grandmother Nena, who died on November 23.

In the same Instagram post, she related, "Today, my grandparents made me believe WITH ALL MY HEART, that this kind of love EXISTS.

"How crazy is it that love is the most wonderful thing to feel.

"I have seen my lolo look into my grandma's eyes at 80+ years old. That look of pure everlasting love, genuine sincerity.

"Despite each flaw, he makes each of them more beautiful for her. I've seen them then and now. He appreciates.

"He never forgets his marriage vow since the day they married each other.

"Literally, '...for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish till death do us part. And hereto I pledge you my faithfulness,' right until my lola Nena's last breath yesterday."

You know the kind of love I admire? The love of my grandparents for each other. Literally, "...for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish till death do us part. And hereto I pledge you my faithfulness", right until my lola Nena's last breath yesterday. Of course I am sad, deep inside. I cried this morning, but I know, life still goes on. Today, my grandparents made me believe WITH ALL MY HEART, that this kind of love EXISTS. How crazy is it that love is the most wonderful thing to feel. I have seen my lolo look into my grandma's eyes at 80+ years old. That look of pure everlasting love, genuine sincerity. Despite each flaw, he makes each of them more beautiful for her. I've seen them then and now. He appreciates. He never forgets his marriage vow since the day they married each other. Another love that is most inspiring to me is God's unconditional love. He tests us at times and makes us go through all these challenges, and sporadically, we think that He hasn't listened to our prayers. He goes beyond our expectations and more. In our heads, we may question "why". "Why did this happen to me?", "Why ME?", but know that those are part of His perfect plan that is destined for me. In 6 days, I will become one with my other half, and if he jumps, I jump. TOGETHER. #FinallyFarias Thank you, @benjietiongco, for capturing our love through photos.
