Months after the televised proposal, Dingdong married his longtime love at the Immaculate Conception Church in Cubao, Tuesday, December 30.
Dingdong, wearing a suit by Randy Ortiz, arrived on a Ducati as fans cheered for him.
Marian arrived in a newly furnished car Dingdong fixed up especially for the ceremony.
Among the guests are President Benigno Aquino III, sister Kris who stood as a sponsor, Vic Sotto, Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto, Ogie Alcasid and wife Regine Velasquez, Sen. Bam Aquino, Lolit Solis and German Moreno.
Security was tight at the wedding with members of the Presidential Security Group guarding parts of the Church.
Fans of the couple lined up early in the morning to see not only them but also other celebrities invited to the wedding.
Marian's gorgeous wedding gown was designed by Dubai-based designer Michael Cinco.
After the wedding, the couple and their guests will head to the Mall of Asia Arena for the reception.
