In Photos: Lotlot de Leon And Fadi El Soury's Garden Wedding In Batangas
She was scared to fall in love again but did, with him, while his disbelief in love at first sight was overthrown by a slow burning admiration and love for her that will last a lifetime.
Lotlot de Leon and Fadi El Soury were made to be together!
Few things compare to the beauty of finding love the second time around, and being absolutely certain that this time, it will be the one to last forever. Such was the case for Lotlot de Leon and Lebanese businessman Fadi El Soury, her longtime partner, who tied the knot in a pastel-colored ceremony with friends and family in Batangas last December.
The wedding is not the first for the actress who, in her teary-eyed vows, expressed her joy at finally finding the right partner for her. The mother of four has openly shared her unresolved challenges in the past with ex-husband Ramon Christopher Gutierrez, making her palpable happiness during her special day all the more heartwarming.
“I was scared to really fall in love again, and to even allow someone to be part of my life. But you were just persistent. You didn’t want to let me be. And I thank you for that," Lotlot shared in her vows, while Fadi responded with equally touching words, saying, "I found a meaning to live. You complete me. You keep teaching me every day how to love myself. And how to cherish the love we have."
A mixture of smiles and tears ensued as this couple expressed their commitment to each other through words and actions, and most notably, Lotlot's dad, Christoper de Leon, and kids Janine, Maxine, Diego and Jessica Gutierrez, seemed to approve of her renewed lease on love.
Christopher, in particular, got a lovely tribute from Lotlot who thanked him for his support all throughout her life.
I still remember clearly how you stood up there in the crowd watching me perform in preschool and I saw you and how I felt proud that my dad was there watching me. You never stopped loving and caring for me. You have always been there. Always. Everything that I am and hope to be is because of the love and lessons that I have learned from you. Growing up with you is one of the many things I will always be grateful for. You have taught me to believe in myself, you have encouraged me in ways you can't imagine to do better and to be the best version of myself. Nobody has ever believed in me like you do. You have always been present in my life. Thank you dad. I love you!
