In Photos: Scenes From Anthony Taberna And Rossel Velasco's Renewal Of Vows
As they celebrate 11 years of wedded bliss, Anthony Taberna and Rossel Velasco prove that true love lasts forever!
Tears still rolled down this bride's cheeks when her husband of over a decade declared his love for her in the company of friends and family. Likewise, his eyes glowed with warmth and tenderness as the love of his life detailed all the ways in which he's changed her life for the better as they exchanged vows at the altar.
Together, Anthony and Rossel made a beautiful sight of everlasting commitment when they married for the second time. Joyous and grateful for each other and the family borne out of their union, they held a second ceremony to affirm being husband and wife.
In the course of five months, Anthony and Rossel had planned how the special occasion would play out.
Enlisting the help of event specialists Events by Miss P, their paradise-themed Fernwood Gardens Tagaytay reception went exactly as envisioned. Photographers and videographers from NicePrint Photo made sure to capture all of the day's special moments from Rossel's Mak Tumang crystal-dotted wedding gown to the seven-tier wedding cake by Honey Glaze Cakes, delicious meals by Zuni Catering, and pretty pastel styling by FJ Sionson Flowers and Events.
Everything came together beautifully with elements reflecting two of this couple's biggest loves: their faith and family.
There to add meaning underneath the beauty were Anthony and Rossel's lovely daughters who each played a role in the ceremony held at Tagaytay's Iglesia Ni Cristo Lokal ng EVM; 10-year-old Zoey was a bridesmaid and 8-year-old Helga was a flower girl. (They surprised guests with a special performance of mom and dad later on!)
The girls weren't the only ones ready with their own songs, either. Rossel picked out "I'll Never Love This Way Again" and "Crazy in Love" to express her happiness about being Mrs. Taberna, while industry friends Martin Nievera and Luke Mejares got hearts swooning with lovely hits "The Way You Look Tonight" and "Kahit Kailan."
Basking in the evening filled with lots of love were guests that included K Brosas, Gladys Reyes, Kapamilya news anchor Tina Marasigan, Regine Angeles, as well as Atom Araullo and MYX VJ Ai dela Cruz who hosted the festivities, among many others.
Days after the event, Rossel was still on wedding high and very much in awe at how she and Anthony have remained deeply committed to each other.
She took to Instagram to share her thoughts, writing, "To the man who gave meaning to my life, I feel so blessed to have found true love in your arms. You are a caring son and brother, sweet father, reliable friend, cool boss, perfect partner, God- fearing servant and most of all YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD HEART.?? I am grateful for every moment that I spend with you and I will never forget how special you made me feel when you asked me to MARRY YOU again."
Anthony wrote his own feelings down in response and said, "Kung puwede lang ulit-ulitin na pakasalan ka, gagawin ko. Kahit araw-araw! ????????"
"Salamat sa Ama dahil kinaawaan Niya tayo at pinakinggan ang ating mga panalangin. Sa harap Niya ay muli tayong nangako sa isa’t-isa. Sa Kanya lamang tayo sasandal. ?????? Salamat sa ating pamilya at mga mahal sa buhay. ?? Sa uulitin," he continued.
