Bohol's Catherine Remperas Exchanges I Do’s with Edmar De Luna

The groom is Edmar De Luna, a 30 year old civil engineer  from Greenhills, San Juan, Manila. The bride is Cathy Remperas better known to GMA Kapuso fans as Catherine Rem, a registered nurse, Boholana beauty queen and TV/ movie actress. Their love story will culminate with the exchange of their lifetime vows before family and friends today, October 29. 
Edmar & Cathy takes a romantic stroll along the charming streets of Montepulciano

Theirs is a great story worth retelling. An important part of their shared history so to speak.  So here’s how it all started as shared by the bride
“ We met through singer KZ Tandingan's friend and Edmar’s cousin Nica. They set us up on a blind date. KZ invited me to go to Extraordinail Nail Salon owned by Nica who is KZ’s good friend. So when I went to the salon that day with KZ, who introduced me to Nica who was there that time.
When Nica found out that I was single, she called her cousin Edmar and told him she found the one for him and she set us up right away for a blind date the next day. Right there and right then, I knew in my heart of hearts that he was the one. And the rest is history.”
The couple, along with their photo & video team, Boholano designer EJ Relampagos, top Manila  celebrity make up artist & stylist Janina Dizon, flew to Italy, one of the world’s most romantic & scenic places for their prenuptial photo and video sessions. 
Looking through the eyes of love
First stop was at Villa La Selva Wine Resort in Florence, the capital of Tuscany then at Montepulciano, one of Tuscany's prettiest towns and well known for its Renaissance buildings, and lovely churches and renowned for its “Vino Nobile” Montepulciano wines.
Edmar’s  steadfast strength  complements the vivacious & sunny disposition of Cathy
Montepulciano’s palaces and beautiful architectural gems punctuated by quaint little houses and surrounded by idyllic cultivated hills gave it its charming, laidback and romantic feel. 

Indeed, the perfect backdrop for the couple’s prenuptial photos and video that would be shown during the wedding reception to be tendered at the Rizal Ballroom of Makati Shangri- la later today.

She didn’t win any of the 10 special awards at stake but in the end she got the biggest title and succeeded the 2017 Miss Silka Bohol winner Sheena Marie Licong.  Catherine Cadayona Tabaniag of Panglao who turned 20 during the pageant received her best birthday gift yet, the Miss Silka Bohol 2018 crown and title. 

She gained the judges' nod with her consistent performance, commanding stage presence, great speaking skills and the luminous, silky smooth skin that is associated with the use of Silka beauty and skincare products from Cosmetique Asia Corporation.

When An Angel Celebrated Her 18th Birthday

The beautiful and gentle Angelica Grace Morizumi celebrated her 18th birthday surrounded by the people who really matters; her family, friends and relatives. 
A celebration fit for a princess

Her mom Adhel Morizumi made sure that Angel’s milestone and transition from childhood to adulthood would be a fabulous and memorable celebration. From her pre- debut photo & video shoot that had the whole family & crew flying off to Palawan to make sure that the breathtaking & scenic beauty of El Nido would serve as the perfect backdrop. 
El Nido, Palawan was the perfect backdrop
The divine & fabulous Angel was a stunning vision in her sensational ballgown created by EJ Relampagos when she made her dramatic entrance at the event venue in Marco Polo, Davao City.

Bohol's Top Eventologist Exchanges I Do’s with Tagbilaran Beauty Queen

He was and still is Bohol’s top eventologist who calls the shots when high- profile event organizing is mentioned. She was the comely and charming registered nurse who was crowned Mutya sa Tagbilaran 2003.  
LJ & Rhoda Lee 

Long before their paths even crossed, they were already destined to meet, fall in love and tie the knot. Believe me,  it was already written in the stars.  They first met when both sat as members of the board of judges tasked with the selection of Mr. & Miss UB Personality 2012. Sparks didn’t exactly light up during that fateful meeting but it was to be the first of several chance encounters and coincidental crossing of paths.
And they sealed it with a kiss
It was only when the bride accepted his FB friend request that they really got to know each other. The initial  exchange of text messages &  the seemingly casual phone calls eventually led to friendly dates and before they knew it, they realized that the friendship had taken a romantic tone. It was a rollerecoaster ride after they officially became a couple.
