Zoren-Carmina Wedding Raises New Hope On Love, Marriage

Zoren Legaspi's surprise marriage proposal and wedding to Carmina Villaroel last Nov. 15 may have just become the benchmark for single men.

The wedding entitled "Zoren-Carmina: Always, Forever: A Wedding Like No Other," which will be aired on ABS-CBN tonight (Nov. 24) after "Maalaala Mo Kaya," will show why Zoren's marriage proposal and wedding to Carmina is a benchmark for hopeless romantics wanting marriage in their lives.

"Ang purpose ko lang ng gabing yun ay paligayahin si Carmina," Zoren replied when told that he has just set a benchmark in weddings. "Hindi ko alam na magkakaroon ng ripple effect yung ginawa namin na maraming na-touched, kagaya ng mga maraming nag-comment sa Facebook and Instagram at sa Twitter. Wala naman akong gustong patunayan sa mundo, gusto ko lang patunayan yung pagmamahal ko kay Carmina."

Carmina said, "Hindi namin akalain na ganito ang magiging effect ng aming wedding sa mga tao. Lahat ng tao, kilala o di kakila man, sobrang na-in-love all over again. At yung mga katulad ng sinabi ni Zoren, mga nabasa namin na hindi na naniniwala sa happy endings at sa love, parang nagkaroon ulit ng pag-asang ma-in-love or maniwala ulit sa kasal o maniwala ulit sa happy endings."

The couple also described their wedding night as perfect. The week around Nov. 15 was a rainy one and rain and flash floods were unpredictable, but it was a clear night on their wedding.

As to when Zoren decided on a surprise marriage proposal and wedding, he said that it was after his father-in-law, Daddy Reggie was recovering from hip surgery. To aid in his speedy recovery, he told him that he should get well-soon because he and Carmina will get married in November and he has to be there.

"Pakiramdam ko kahit anong klaseng wedding ang ibigay ko kay Carmina, kahit gaano kalaki, it would be useless kapag kahit isang magulang wala doon. Si Daddy Reggie na lang ang natitira sa buhay niya. Ako hindi ko ma-forgive ang sarili ko kapag ganun nga ang nangyari," said Zoren.

How much did Zoren spend for the wedding, from the Harry Winston wedding ring down to the production? "Hindi ko nararamdaman ang gastos kasi na-overwhelmed ng happiness and appreciation mo na na-accomplish mo yung isang goal mo. Sabi ko nga, may mga projects kasi ako in mind like to direct movies, pero sabi ko wala ng tatalo dito," he replied.

    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 …
