Evangelista weds senator

Evangelista weds senator

Wearing a beautiful long-train gown designed by Dubai-based Ezra Santos, Evangelista walked down the aisle on her own.



Actress Love Marie Ongpauco (aka Heart Evangelista) and Senator ChizEscudero finally tied the knot on February 15, just a day after Evangelista celebrated her 30th birthday. The wedding was a high profile and private ceremony held at the exclusive Balesin Island Club, a picturesque resort off the Eastern coast of Luzon.

Wearing a beautiful long-train gown designed by Dubai-based Ezra Santos, Evangelista walked down the aisle on her own, as her parents were reportedly not supportive of her decision to wed the 45-year old Senator.

The bride became emotional when her cousin Happy Ongpauco-Tiu read a letter from her father Rey at the reception. 

According to a report from online entertainment portal PEP, Ongpauco did not give any reason for not coming but in the letter, he said he wanted to walk his youngest daughter down the aisle on her wedding day.

“A lot of things have happened that hindered us from going,” her father said.  In the end, Ongpauco said that the time will come when everything between them will be okay. “If the time comes that we see that you and Chiz are happy and if I see him loving you the way you deserve to be loved, I will come knocking at your door,” Ongpauco said in the letter.
