MANILA, Philippines — Filipino-American actor Darren Criss paid tribute to his Filipino roots by wearing a traditional barong Tagalog, designed by Francis Libiran, during his wedding in New Orleans on Feb. 16.

Criss married his long-time girlfriend Mia Swier – a director, producer and musician – in a four-day celebration that started on Valentine’s Day. 

“It’s been a whole week and I’m still basking in the glow of one of the greatest parties Mia and I have ever thrown. And we’ve thrown some crazy parties. That’s right folks, if you didn’t already know, Mia and I done got hitched. And it was easily the most magical few days of our lives. Thank you to everyone who had a hand in making it such a special occasion- it was the most euphoric celebration we could have possibly imagined for this wild life we’ve built together,” Criss posted in his Instagram with photos of the wedding.  

Libiran also uploaded a series of photos of the ceremony in his Instagram, including one of the actor dancing with his Cebuana mother, Cerina Bru.

He took pride that his creation was featured in Vogue Magazine. 

“What a great Pinoy Pride moment!! Francis Libiran is featured on Vogue Magazine as the fashion designer of multi-awarded Hollywood star Darren Criss, who honored his Filipino heritage by proudly wearing a traditional barong Tagalog on his extravagant wedding. Mabuhay!!!” he said in an Instagram post. 

Criss won a Golden Globe award for his performance in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” early this year.
