Nico Bolzico and Solenn Heussaff
There's just so much to love about this celebrity wedding. Everything—from the quaint French countryside to the majestic cathedral and their rustic garden reception—was as romantic as it was picturesque. Solenn was gorgeous in her off-shoulder Lihi Hod gown, but she was beyond radiant during her tear-jerking wedding vows.
Adrien Semblat and Isabelle Daza
This couple's nuptials looked right out of a pretty postcard, whether it was the charming wedding venue in Castello di Gargonza or the Tuscan-themed despedida de soltera that came before it. For an extra dose of wanderlust, you need to see the wedding video by Bob Nicolas; that aerial shot of a Tuscan vineyard is breathtaking!
Paul Jake Castillo and Kaye Abad
After a string of super-sweet prenup shoots, celebrity couple Paul Jake and Kaye tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in Cebu. The intricate wedding gown by Francis Libiran was a scene-stealer, but it's the heartfelt moment between Paul Jake and his father-in-law at the altar that will really get the tears flowing.
Arthur Burnand and Georgina Wilson
Every little detail that went into this wedding was as stylish and sophisticated as you'd expect from this It Girl. She walked down the aisle in an exquisite gown by Monique Lhullier, while her famous bridesmaids donned dresses and fur coats in varying shades of nudes and browns. Their reception, held at the lush Avington Park, will make you fall in love with the English countryside.
Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna
After four years of dating, Vic and Pauleen exchanged vows at an intimate ceremony in St. James The Great Parish Church, Alabang. Fans got a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the couple getting ready during a telecast of Eat Bulaga. Videographer Jason Magbanua released an SDE, as well as a lengthier, 12-minute video that focused on the emotional guests, speeches during the reception, and the couple's silly first dance.
Justin Pitt and Cristalle Belo Henares
It doesn't get any more grandiose than this celebrity wedding. If you're a movie fan, you'll recognize the centuries-old Villa Erba from Ocean's Twelve, which overlooks a sprawling landscape and the famous Lake Como. The simply decorated aisle put the spotlight on the awe-inspiring architecture. As for their guests, they were treated to a cruise at sunset and later, a stunning candlelit reception in a hall lined with Renaissance frescoes.
Ali Khatibi and Cristine Reyes
For folks who prefer smaller, more intimate affairs, this celebrity wedding is a dream come true. Cristine and Ali surprised fans with a simple beachside ceremony in Balesin Island. Despite just a handful of guests, their union was full of love—especially when the groom's eyes filled with tears as he recited his vows.
Sean Farinas and Karel Marquez
Just like their viral prenup video by Treehouse Story, this wedding ceremony was equally as unique and poetic. Karel walked down the aisle in a stunning, beaded number by designer Mak Tumang and the reception was a lush, floral fairytale—think towering bouquets and crystal candelabras—styled by Teddy Manuel. The surprise scene-stealer, however, was the sleek BMW Karel gave to Sean!
