From officemates to partners in life

C‘EST CEBU - Honey Jarque Loop (The Philippine Star) - June 22, 2019 - 12:00am

Boom Bondoc & Cesca Climaco

After four years of courtship, Boom Bondoc and Cesca Climaco, both working in the same establishment, tied the knot at the St. Therese of the Child Jesus Parish.

The proud parents of the groom, Martin and Pilar Bondoc, as well as the parents of the bride, Fernando and Joanna Marie Rivilla, shared the happiness that filled the church as the young couple exchanged lifetime vows at the  solemn Mass officiated by Fr. Renel Cabag.

Boom was greeted with cheers as he walked down the aisle. Then time stood still as the doors opened to welcome the blushing bride in a simple yet elegant gown lovingly created by Boom’s aunt Carmen Villegas. She was met at the altar by the  groom who was dashing  in a light grey suit by Prince Albert.

The entourage was dressed in pastel colors in lieu of the earth-inspired theme the couple envisioned. Witnessing the union were  Madrinas Carmen Villegas, Ana Maria Climaco, Florisa Perez, Marie Noelle Blanco, Stefanie Chiongbian and Maria Paz Escaño. The padrinos were Emmanuel Climaco, Jose Bondoc, Herbert Consunji, Peter Laurel, Jaime Tioseco and Nicolas Camcam.

After the ceremony, guests drove to the private beach house of Cesca’s tita Charito Climaco in Mactan Island where cocktails were served.

The evening’s hosts Reena del Rosario and Cheeno Roque  kept the energy alive as they entertained invitees with jokes and fun games before dinner.  As tradition dictates, Boom took to the floor to dance with his bride. Cesca was a vision of delight as she traipsed with him to the tune of Feels Like Home by Chantal Kreviazuk.
