The cool evening glittered even more after the solemn wedding ceremony of lovely newlyweds Arch. Pablo H. Antonio III and Atty. Rita O. Peña-Antonio.

A grand and lavish reception was held at the Lopez famille’s legendary and majestic Nelly Garden Mansion!

The high society guests relished the awesome venue which was magically transformed into a fairytale-like castle, reminiscent of the European palaces and grounds like the Gardens of Versailles.

The interiors of Nelly Garden Mansion were tastefully decorated with imported fresh flowers and gorgeous table decors that added to the night’s elegant and romantic vibes. This was all due to the magic of world-renowned event stylist Gideon Hermosa.

Family and friends of the couple were feted to a sumptuous feast envisioned by Wilson Esperancilla amidst the soothing romantic music performed by Lyrica Strings orchestra.

The newlywed’s principal sponsor, musical legend Jose Mari Chan, offered a heartfelt and touching prayer for the couple. The night was filled with inspiring, moving, and beautiful speeches from the couple’s immediate families – Judgee, Sarah, Risa and Rica Peña; and Mirja and Kata Antonio.

Highlighting the celebration was the lovely couple’s dance on the magical courtyard which was dramatically filled with glimmering lights and stars that sparkled the castle walls never before seen in scene in Iloilo’s  grandiose affairs, dahlings!

The groom, Architect Pablo Antonio III, is from a family of well-known and pioneering Filipino Architects, while the bride, topnotch lawyer Rita O. Peña is the granddaughter of the former Philippine Vice President Fernando Lopez.

Here’s to happily ever and after, Pablo and Rita! Cheers and God bless!!!
