Beauty Gonzalez and Norman Crisologo's "small garden wedding" happened early today, May 6, at Antonio's restaurant in Tagaytay.
And with a groom who is an art curator, their nuptial set-up was, as expected, extraordinaire.
A friend of the couple, Chase Chua, described this structure as "the Church that Norman built," with some help from Jun Poblador's artistic direction.
The couple chose a gothic romantic theme, which was superbly executed by event stylist Teddy Manuel.
On Instagram, he wrote, "Black & White would be much more romantic!"
Beauty wanted to be the only one who would walk down the aisle. And she would do so in a dress she bought abroad.
In a previous interview, she had said, "Walang entourage...There will be no wedding sponsors, only two witnesses at their wedding."
She got her wish.
She wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress with black bow ties at the back.
Beauty's bridal bouquet had peonies, anemone, and pale pink Ecuadorian roses.
Beauty wanted to be the "pinaka-cool na bride," so she really avoided crying.
Here's a video of the couple reciting their traditional wedding vows.
But when it was her turn to say her personal vows, she almost cried when she said the line, "Never have I known a man who can love so fully and unselfishly."
GUESTS. Beauty's best friend Ellen Adarna came wearing a "Itigil Ang Kasal dress," which Ellen said, was approved by the bride.
Art collectors Aga Muhlach, Julius Babao, and Tintin Bersola-Babao also came.
