Krista Ranillo marries childhood sweetheart, supermarket chain owner, in California
Two months after announcing their engagement, actress Krista Ranillo married her childhood sweetheart, Filipino-American Jefferson Niño Lim, CEO of Island Pacific Supermarkets, on August 8 in California, reports Saksi and ABS-CBNNews.com.
The Jewish wedding ceremony was held at the garden of Hotel Maya in Long Beach, California, according to the Saksi report. It was an intimate affair with only about 100 guests, mostly the couple’s close friends and family. Ranillo wore an off-white halter gown and walked down the aisle with her father, veteran actor Matt Ranillo III. ABS-CBNNews.com reports that the guests said the reception and the karaoke after-party were held on a yacht.
According to ABS-CBNNews.com, media personnel were banned from covering the wedding but the couple’s spokesperson said they would release official photos and videos when they are ready.
Last month, world boxing champ and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao, whom Ranillo was rumored to have had an affair with, said he is happy to hear about her engagement, according to GMANews.tv. "At least, wala ng masasabi ang mga tao, na masabi pa nila na kami pa din, na may relasyon kaming dalawa (At least now, people won’t speculate about our supposed relationship)."
