I've known Cathy since our Hong Kong days and I am so happy to see that she finally found her soulmate in Lex.
Their love story is about the perfect timing. When two people are destined to be, the universe will always conspire to bring them together.
The universe is stubborn. Believe in second chances.
When Cathy and Lex met again, it was at the perfect time, at the perfect place, under the perfect circumstances, and last September 13, they celebrated their wedding with a perfect dinner reception.
It was my first time to attend a wedding function in Solaire and was I impressed!
Munchies at the cocktail area
Photo booth with a backdrop of Paris, where Lex proposed to Cathy last year
A wall of framed photos from their travels
The ballroom was transformed into a magical place
Two words: Winter Wonderland!
The Presidential Table
Check out the details!
The bride in her Veluz gown
My favorite part of the ballroom was this never-ending screen
Where they showed the amazing pre-nup photos by Pat Dy
So much drama! ♥
With the newlyweds and bridesmaid CJ
The groom surprised everyone with a song number.
I didn't know Lex could sing so well! Lol!
Cathy joined him
And they danced their first dance as husband and wife
My dream is to have someone carry me like that and make it look
oh so easy and effortless. LOL. :D
Cake cutting with bubbles!
Senator JV Ejercito said watching Lex and Cathy makes him want to get married all over again
And now my favorite part of the night…
Duck 3 Ways: Duck Rilette, Duck Liver Pate, Smoked Duck Breast,
toast pomegranate, vanilla sauce
Wild mushroom bisque, roasted cippolini mushroom, wild mushrooms,
creme fraiche, cheese twist
Tortellini in pesto sauce, sundried tomato, pine nuts
Seabass with olive oil poached tomatoes, olives, cured lemon gremolata,
Roasted beef tenderloin with salsa verde, potato gallette and asparagus
Nutella opera, strawberry marbled cheesecake, panna cotta, vanilla ice cream
I loved that the guests were so game with the kissing contest. They were asked to re-enact kissing scenes from famous movies and they did it so wildly and torridly it was difficult to choose the best couple!
Remember the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp?
More lovebirds at my table
Richard Poon serenaded us with beautiful songs
While the bride danced with her father, Lex with his mom, and
eventually, all 3 beautiful couples were slow-dancing on stage
The father of the groom gave a very entertaining speech. Lex's parents are so cool and fun!
They came in matching black and gold dragon outfits, and did not walk, but danced their
way into the ballroom!
Lex's mom in a dress fit for an empress!
The night ended with a dance number from the bride and groom's friends
Clar, the bride's equally beautiful sister and matron of honor
The sexy Shamaine
Ever gorgeous and flawless BJ

Congratulations and the very best wishes, Cathy and Lex!!! :)
