- The wedding took place at Tagaytay’s Hillcreek Gardens on March 6
- The emotional event was witnessed by close friends and family
- The actress finally closed an old chapter in her life and will start a new one with her husband
An emotional video of Empress Schuck exchanging wedding vows with partner Vino Guingona was recently uploaded online, giving everyone a chance to see the closing of the old chapter and the beginning of a new one in the life of the actress.
The official wedding video of Vino and Empress, which was taken and uploaded by their official video partner, Nice Print Photography, showed the couple exchanging highly-expressive wedding vows as their friends and family looked on.
Empress can be heard telling Vino in the almost 10-minute long video clip that here they are now, closing a page and beginning a new chapter. The actress also recalled how both of them went through a lot of trials.
“We've been through many trials, and can you believe? By the Grace of God, we survived, and we're here at this very moment, honoring Him, making Him happy and proud, obeying His command,” the former Kapamilya star said.
Empress revealed that Vino rescued her from her painful past. “Since Athalia came, I've been telling myself that you are God's gift to me. I didn't know what I wanted that time and you just came, rescued me from the pain of the past,” she told her husband in front of guests.
The actress then expressed how happy she was at finally finding her place, her contentment and peace with Vino. “Through you, God showed me that I can be taken care of. That I can be loved. I can be heard and understood for all the struggles and sacrifices I went through in life,” she added.
Empress then told Vino she finally realized he’s the one. “Ikaw pala. Ikaw pala 'yung finish line. Ikaw 'yung happy ending. Ikaw 'yung reward. Simula noon, everything made sense. Of course, there were still hardships. But this time may kasama na ako,” the ‘Rosalka’ star said.
For his part, Vino said their love story’s beginnings were far from perfect as they both faced huge responsibilities early in their lives due to their own miscalculated actions.
He then narrated how Empress was there for him at all times, particularly when he lost his father. “You never left me and were there to comfort me,” Vino said.
Vino promised Empress that he will spend the rest of his life with her through good and bad times.
“I vow to put God first at the center of our relationship. To be patient and respect you and care for you as long as we both shall live. I love you and to God be the glory,” the former model said.
