She and Chiz later threw a reception for their friends based in Manila, who couldn't make it to Balesin.

At her Balesin wedding, Heart floated down the aisle in a show-stopping wedding dress by Ezra Santos. It was an intricate creation featuring a sweetheart neckline, delicate overlays and a cinched-in waist.

Speaking to Star Studio magazine back in November, Heart said this of her dress:  “I want it (the gown) very simple...I want it to be something like Grace Kelly's. Siyempre as an artista, you always show a lot of skin. So I just want to be very conservative on that day. Just very simple and timeless yung dress, na even if you look at it years from now, hindi mahihiya. (You won't be ashamed of it.)"

The look enhances, not obscures Heart's natural beauty, focusing on making her eyes pop, and featuring a healthy, rosy glow. 

Heart wore a small headpiece, so hairstylist Jerry Javier created a simple bun that kept all the focus on Heart's dress and features. 

A sweet touch to Heart's overall look, also shared by Jerry on Instagram – this detail on Heart's bouquet:

Stylist Kam Ocampo posted a photo of Heart's Christian Louboutin heels.

"Way better than glass slippers. #ChizHeart21515#chizheartlovefinally #BalesinLove," she wrote. 

Later, Heart changed into a more relaxed dress, reportedly by Mark Bumgarner, for the grand reception:

The road to Heart Evangelista's wedding day to Senator Chiz Escudero was a bumpy one – from the conflict with her parents earlier in the relationship – they didn't approve of the senator – to the most recent issue surrounding the booking of her wedding venue, Balesin Island Club. But all those faded into the background just in time for her wedding day Sunday, February 15, with Heart having given a heartfelt message of love to her parents

Congratulations to the happy couple! – Rappler.com
