Romea Couple Marks Silver Wedding

The 25th wedding anniversary is a milestone event in a couple's life and should be marked with an appropriate celebration surrounded by loved ones. 

Spending a quarter of a century in love with one person is to be celebrated. Associating silver with twenty- five years of marital bliss traces its origins to olden times when a husband would offer his wife a silver garland marking 25 years. 

Silver is the perfect match for the twenty-fifth anniversary. This precious and valuable metal is noted not only for its long- lasting radiance and brilliance but also as a symbol for harmony which is an important ingredient needed to sustain a marriage for such a long period of time

Engr. John Carlos D. Romea and Mrs. Teofanisa O. Romea of Maribojoc, Bohol celebrated their silver wedding anniversary with a renewal of vows officiated by Pastor Roy Zafico at the Tagbilaran Assembly of God along Maria Clara St., Tagbilaran City 

Maid of Honor was only daughter Karisma Jesusa and Best Man was only son John Carlos II

Candle Sponsors were Mr. Eliseo Minoza & Mrs. Priscila Antivo, Cord Sponsors were Mr. Perceival & Mrs. Roxanne Delarmente and the Veil Sponsors were Mr. Andy & Mrs. Shirley Sagaldia

Reception followed at the Dagohoy Grand Hall of Bohol Tropics Resort where everyone enjoyed the sumptuous dinner and dessert

Later on, the groom’s eldest sister Mrs. Julieta R. Escabarte, shared the couple’s secret to an enduring relationship while his youngest sister, Mrs. Justina R. Arangoso revealed the admirable traits of her Kuya Caloy 

Entertainment was provided by saxophonist Jeje Ampong. The Silver Couple’s son surprised them & the guests when he serenaded his parents with their favorite song while they had their first dance


It was a professionally- coordinated occasion made more memorable and truly special with the meticulous planning expertise of the very reliable Ms Malou Purificacion- Lustre of the Haus of Brides and VideoWise Photo & Video Services.

The two of them met at a benefit dance and were formally introduced by a mutual friend

What followed was a long courtship that lasted for five months. 

She was only 18 years old when she said YES. They had been sweethearts for nine years when he finally proposed to her in 1988. 

Their beautiful relationship culminated in a church wedding that was officiated by Fr. Leonel Grado. They had their reception at the La Roca Hotel

Admittedly, theirs is not a perfect marriage. There were ups and there were downs.

What made the marriage endure and survive was not only the foundation of love but also their open communication lines, their mutual respect for each other and staying 

Here’s to the next 25 years!
