MANILA, Philippines—Actress Carmina Villaroel was in a lovely wedding dress for a “family product photoshoot” at the Fernbrook Gardens in Las Piñas City Thursday evening.
But in a script that only Zoren Legaspi and his “accomplices” knew unfolded a real-life drama that brought Carmina into tears.
“Will you marry me?” Zoren, who was in tuxedo, proposed to the unsuspecting bride. Of course, she could only say “yes” to her celebrity partner of 12 years.
Their twins, Cassandra and Maverick, entered the scene and demanded that their parents get married “tonight!”
Zoren and Carmina tied the knot that evening.
“It was so touching and yes I cried a few times as did many of the guests and, of course, the bride and their daughter Cassandra,” said former chair of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board, Grace Poe Llamanzares, who was one of the principal sponsors.
It was a civil wedding officiated by Court of Appeals Justice Amy Javier, said Dolor Guevara, Carmina’s manager.
Designer Paul Cabral organized the entire wedding ceremony, said Guevara.
Also among the principal sponsors were Kris Aquino, Eric Quizon, Sharon Cuneta, Ben Chan, Felix Ang, John Concepcion and Cory Vidanes. With Bayani San Diego, Inquirer
