December 9, 2016, 3:00 p.m., at the beautiful chapel of San Pedro Calungsod in Cebu South Road Properties (SRP), IPI’s very own Paul Jake Castillo, former PBB housemate, married the love of his life --- Katherine Grace “Kaye” Abad, star of the late 1990s to early 2000 Pinoy TV drama Tabing Ilog.
The weather was wonderful. The sun gave its usual sparkling light, and everything about the most grandiose moment fell perfectly in place. Such was the beauty of the day, brightly livened by the smile in everyone’s faces as they waited for the hour.
Looking around, you can make out a Victorian-inspired wedding. Everything about the church, the guests, and the bride were lavish, but strikingly modest, making Cebu’s newest and most popular chapel a sight to behold. It was adorned even more beautifully with a delicate arrangement of exotic white flowers intricately lined up on the altar and by the aisle. After the wedding rite, followed a fancy reception at Radisson Blu hotel.
