Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes tie the knot

Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes, who have been sweethearts for almost a year, tied the knot on Sunday, June 9.

Richard first revealed about their engagement during his album launch last April, but was tightlipped about the details.

Their talent management  companies, Cornerstone and Star Magic posted photos of the newlyweds. Francis Libiran designed Maricar's gown and Richard's black tuxedo.

ABS-CBN executives and celebrities attended the celebration. Jose Mari Chan, Nikki Gil, Thor and ASAP Sessionistas performed at the wedding reception.

Earlier, Poon said his parents highly approve of the relationship.

"I met her parents. I also told my parents about her. Every Sunday, nagmi-meet kami sa resto ng daddy ko. Lagi silang nag-uusap ni Maricar. Gustong-gusto niya si Maricar," he said.

Richard had said he admires Maricar’s character and simplicity.

"Unang kita ko pa lang kay Maricar sa Betty La Fea, crush ko na siya. May character siya, grace under pressure. She has gone through a lot. I like how her character handled it. She's a very simple and private person."

The couple announced their relationship on Kris TV in August 2012.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
