This was the first time I ever covered a wedding vow renewal, and to make things even more unpredictable, it was Donnie’s surprise to his wife, Matoy! She had no clue that she was about to get married to him the second time around amongst their closest friends in the gorgeous Balay Indang in Cavite.
And here come the guests! First, they enter the venue where the ceremony is to be held, just minutes before the couple arrives:
And finally, the moment everyone was waiting for: the couple arrive and witness Matoy’s reaction! She was absolutely stunned yet delighted at the sight before her!
After the ceremony and a quick pictorial, it was time for the grub! Balay Indang serves up some really delicious home-cooked meals that really hits the spot. Their baby back ribs and mushroom soup are a must-try! I could barely take any photos of the food (I was only able to capture three dishes), because once served on the table, it vanished in just seconds!
It was so touching to see Donnie and Matoy’s love for each other going strong after 20 years of marriage and three children as well as how loved they are by their friends. I’m so glad to have been able to experience it all Here’s to many, many more happy years together, Donnie and Matoy!
