As said in traditional wedding vows, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, to love and to cherish, until death do us part—marriage is a culmination of love between two people who share eternal love. The love that two people share in marriage knows no expiration; however, from time to time, being reminded of the eternal covenant strengthens one’s relationship.

For Heart Evangelista and Chiz Escudero, their renewal of vows celebrates the beauty of love and marriage. The power couple celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary with a renewal of vows ceremony. Moreover, they decided to celebrate their renewal of vows in the same place they got married—Balesin Island. 

Full Of Love 

The couple celebrated their 9th anniversary with their closest friends and family. Some of Heart’s friends, such as Aivee and Z Teo, Michael Leyva, and Albert Kurinawan, were present to support the couple’s anniversary. More importantly, a special person in Heart’s life was present at the event—her mother, Cecilia Ongpauco.

The presence of Heart’s mother is a monumental moment for the couple. In 2015, during their wedding, only Heart’s sisters were with her in the ceremony. However, this year, her parents were supportive and accepting of the relationship. Sadly, Rey Ongpauco, Heart’s father, is currently recovering from a medical condition, barring him from attending the ceremony.
