Kylie Padilla and Aljur Abrenica's surprise wedding was a dream come true for the bride.
More than a celebration of union between a man and a woman, it was a special occasion that reunited Kylie's immediate family.
After years of living apart, Kylie, her parents Robin Padilla and Liezl Sicangco, and her siblings Queenie, Zherileen, and Ali were together again in one happy homecoming.
The glowing bride looked back at these precious family moments on Instagram.
She captioned her post, "Stems of my happiness."
As early as August, Kylie was thrilled to finally have her mom Liezl in her company.
It was also the first face-to-face meeting of Liezl and her grandson Alas Joaquin.
The GMA-7 actress wrote in an Instagram post, "I don't take for granted how lucky I am to still have my mom with me.
"Seeing her with Alas is like feeling safe.
"In her hands I know he will be alright and that’s all I could ever want..."
In October, Kylie's older sister Queenie was back in Manila.
The sisters were happy to be reunited.
Queenie, her husband Usman Rashid Mir, and their daughter Mustahsina are based in Pakistan.
Meanwhile, siblings Zherileen and Ali, who live with their mom Liezl, arrived from Australia just in time for the wedding.
Before the wedding ceremony, a tender moment between Kylie and her dad Robin was captured by Proudrad Photography.
A daddy's girl, Kylie wanted nothing more than her father and her husband Aljur to establish a good relationship.
Robin initially did not like how Kylie and Aljur's relationship played out.
But in October 2017, things changed for the better, albeit temporarily, when Aljur apologized to Robin through Tonight With Boy Abunda, "Kung mapapanood niya man ‘to, kung may nagawa man po ako na sa tingin niyo eh hindi maganda o naging kasalanan ko, humihingi na po ako ng sorry sa inyo. Si Kylie po, wala naman po akong balak pabayaan iyan mahal ko po iyan."
In February 2018, Robin's prayer was answered.
Aljur asked for Kylie's hand in marriage during the pamamanhikan that took place at the action star's mansion.
The 28-year-old Kapamilya actor then said, "Tito Robin, nandito po ako para pormal na hingin iyong kamay ng anak ninyo."
Robin, Kylie, and her son Alas Joaquin also shared a moment together before the ceremony.
Kylie and Aljur got married on December 11 at Villa Milagros in Rodriguez, Rizal.
