Just last week, Bianca Gonzalez and JC Intal tied the knot in beautiful El Nido. Her dress was like a dream, the venue was paradise, the weather was perfect, and the ceremony was intimate. It was a wedding some of us can only dream of—but at the end of the day, #JCandB are celebrities with a lot of friends in their respective industries, which meant a celebration in Manila to say the least, was utterly and completely necessary.
If we all make a wild guess, most of us would say they chose the venue because JC is a basketball star. But apart from that (as well as the fact that this couple didn’t succumb to any norm), Araneta Coliseum was where their love story began. JC and Bianca both went to Ateneo, but the two didn’t know each other personally until their paths crossed once again while watching a basketball game after they graduated from college.
TWO TICKETS, PLEASE?
We obsessed over their impressive DIYs in El Nido, but the Ticketnet invites they had for the Manila reception blew our minds. But wait there's more!
Each invitation contained a small jersey of JC's past and present teams, and each one corresponds to a specific table arrangement. Clearly, they thought about every little detail of this party.
Even the menu for the evening was personalized. They served the bride's favorite, the groom's "forever order", and even a special Intal brothers' recommendation.
Here's Bianca's favorite dish, the "Al Telefono"
WHEN ENTERTAINMENT MET BASKETBALL
Gary Valenciano serenaded the newly-weds and their guests.
Bianca and JC may be a part of two very different industries, but their wedding celebration (as well as their story) proved that sometimes combining opposites make a good combination. At the party, there was rockeoke and a basketball shoot-out. Their family and friends enjoyed singing their hearts out while people got competitive at the shooting game. Why? Because a trip to Phuket was up for grabs for the couple who made the most number of shots in 30 seconds. Now that's a wedding party we'd like to attend.
The dapper Intal brothers gave karaoke their all.
And the ever-so-chic Liz Uy scored some hoops. Yes people, this Preview Girl knows how to play ball. She was actually table four's secret to winning.
Even Mr. and Mrs. Intal gamely belted out a few tunes.
And cheered for their friends.
AS FOR THEIR LOOKS
Bianca wore another beautiful Rosa Clara gown, while JC suited up in Albert Andrada.
The #JCandB nuptials was indeed an epic event to remember. There will be a lot more celebrity weddings, but we're sure, this is one that we surely won't forget.
Again, congratulations JC and Bianca.
It was a star-studded event, see the guests who got to join in the one-of-a-kind celebration here.
