During their reception in Balesin, the couple thanked their family and friends for celebrating with them despite challenges in their relationship. Heart’s parents did not attend the wedding.

Heart’s father sent a surprise letter telling Heart that it pained him that he couldn’t walk Heart down the aisle. He also told Chiz in the letter to take care of Heart.

Chiz promised to love Heart and said that he would only call Mr. Ongpauco ‘dad’ or ‘tatay,’ when he is permitted to do so. –
