8 Over-the-Top Details From the #ChizHeart21515 Reception
We were there to witness the whole affair, and we bring you an inside look.
(SPOT.ph) If you thought the Chiz Escudero and Heart Evangelista festivities were over, think again. Their celebration didn’t end in Balesin. Instead, it continued at the Blue Leaf Pavilion in Parañaque. The February 18 reception didn’t lack in famous faces or grandiose celebrations. We give you some of the over-the-top moments we saw firsthand.
From the white flowers adorning the pathway down to the silver centerpieces, the reception was as grand and elegant as they come.
