Celebrity weddings that made us fall in love in 2013
MANILA, Philippines – Miss Universe 2011 3rd runner-up Shamcey Supsup and businessman Lloyd Lee were the latest celebrity couple to tie the knot just before the year closed. On Sunday, December 29, they walked down the aisle at the Church of the Risen Lord inside the University of the Philippines, Diliman – the bride's alma mater.
With the fresh feeling of romance in the air, let's look back at some of the celebrity weddings that reminded us of great love and true happy endings in 2013:
Lloyd Lee and Shamcey Supsup
Lloyd is a Filipino-Chinese model and businessman who met Shamcey during her birthday party in May 2011. His family reportedly owns one of the biggest knitting and textile companies in the country.
True to her interview with Pep.ph in October, Shamcey had a wedding full of lace and pastel colors. The bride wore a champagne colored lace gown designed by Cherry Veric, while the groom wore a suit of the same color.
Jonas Antonio Gaffud, president of Mercator Artist & Model Management who was present at the wedding, took pictures and video of the event and posted them on Instagram:

Chris Tiu and Clarisse Ong
When rumors of basketball hearthrob Chris Tiu's wedding in Vancouver broke out, the Internet also buzzed with the sound of broken hearts – his fans expressed their best wishes, albeit through gritted teeth, on social media.
Tiu married his long time girlfriend Clarisse Ong who reportedly studied in Canada for college.
Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes
In June, singer Richard Poon married actress Maricar Reyes in a private wedding ceremony. Only their families and closest of friends were in attendance. The wedding was kept a secret until the day itself when photos of the intimate affair were posted on social media, surprising their fans.
Lino Cayetano and Fille Cainglet
Another wedding that surprised netizens was that of former Ateneo volleyball player Fille Cainglet and TV director-turned-congressman Lino Cayetano this December. The two had been dating for only 3 months, but Lino's brother, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, said this should not be an issue. “I was also with my wife just for a very short time, halos 3 months din, [but] in 3 months, 10 years na kami. When I ask him, ‘Are you sure?’ Ang sagot niya (Lino), ‘Were you sure?’ And I was sure, so...so far, so good.”
GP Reyes and Andi Manzano
Former MTV VJ and Radio DJ Andi Manzano also tied the knot in November with publicist and club owner GP Reyes in Baguio. Some netizens criticized the couple, calling them insensitive, for pushing through with their wedding just days after Typhoon Yolanda ravaged the Visayas. Andi posted a photo via Instagram captioned "...It doesn't mean we are oblivious to the plight of our brothers and sisters in tacloban and bohol...in fact we are already in mid stride to provide aid in our own way. So please excuse me and my husband for our few days of festivity... We have planned this wedding for more than a year... So please allow us to enjoy our moment. We are not being insensitive... we just not the kind of people who broadcast our charity work..."
Jon Herrera and Patti Grandidge
DJ Jon Herrera and model/host Patti Grandidge were wed in a beautiful ceremony by the beach at Boracay Shangri-La in May. Patti wore a gown from Rosa Clara and Jon wore a suit made of linen.
