5 Things We Love About Alodia Gosiengfiao and Christopher Quimbo’s Wedding

Welcome to #Quimbodia: This Final Fantasy-themed wedding is out-of-this-world beautiful!

Celebrity cosplayer Alodia Gosiengfiao finally had her forever and “final fantasy” when she tied the knot with Christopher Quimbo. The two celebrated the wedding ceremony at Manila Marriott Hotel’s Marriott Grand Ballroom in Newport City on Valentine’s, recreating the video game that the vlogger-gamer loves.

Her lifetime partner, businessman Christopher Quimbo, proposed to her last July 2022—not long after asking Alodia out to officially date him. During their supposed “tour” at a vacation villa in Tagaytay City, Cavite, Christopher popped the question, prompting the cosplay queen to come back with a “Yes!”

The newlyweds broke the news to the public in April 2022 that their dating phase had begun, and four months later, Alodia’s man finally made an offer of marriage. Alodia Gosiengfiao, as Christopher would describe her, is a woman of depth.

Here are 5 things we love about the Quimbo-Gosiengfiao wedding:

1. The setting

Alodia’s wedding is on another world as floral installations, fairy lights, lush plants, and visual projections filled the venue. The fantasy-like event, let alone Gideon Hermosa’s artistic set design and styling, is such a sight to see not only for the newlyweds but also for the guests. Based on the adventure game “Final Fantasy”,which is Alodia’s favorite, the ceremony was a forest full of man-made magic. Gideon tells Metro.Style that the concept is like a “dreamy midnight wedding.”

2. Alodia’s gown

Alodia was no less than a living nymph as she donned an intricate, dragon-inspired gown designed by the great Mak Tumang. The couturier—who is popular for creations Bulkang Mayon and Ibong Adarna that were worn by Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray in the Miss Universe pageant—decided to piece elements together that are expressive of Alodia’s limitless imagination. Living up to the bride’s wishes, Mak built a multiway masterpiece that can clothe Alodia in three ways, tops. Her groom, Christopher, on the other hand, looked dapper in his stylish black and white tuxedo by Francis Libiran.

3. Alodia’s footwear

Created by Shoepatos’ founder and chairperson Doreen Odvina, Alodia’s custom haute couture mesh boots are made with clear heels and crystals. The embellishments are just as elaborate as her gown, making the two a great match.

4. The cake

Counting is not necessary as the cake’s layers in Quimbodia’s wedding are a lot to process. Standing tall and strong, the Honey Glaze Cakes piece is coated in classic white and is encrusted with edible flowers, plant forms, and whatnots.

5. Alodia’s beauty look

Both the bride’s hair and makeup are a huge part of every party, and Alodia’s looked stunning. The graceful belle of the ball is brimming with beauty and sophistication as her tresses are squeezed in a low bun by MJ Rone, leaving her a clean-cut appearance. Her makeup artist Thazzia Falek, similarly, applied shades of nude on Alodia’s face, framing a natural look. Her lengthy lashes, groomed eyebrows, and winged eyeliner is a great work of art as well.
