KAMI obtained a transcription of the newlyweds’ emotional vows from PEP.ph:
1. Rob’s wedding vows for Maxene:
“Today, I woke up with the biggest smile in my life. I can’t believe that I’m here with you right now, in this moment.
“In the past, my life was very dark and gloomy. But when I met you, you made me see the light. You made my world brighter, and I’m forever grateful to you for that.
“We live in a world of judgmental people, discrimination, and bullying, but I promise you, I will never let that happen to you.
“They say ‘life is an echo’ and all I wish to echo to you is my support, care, and love. I promise to never make you feel alone, abandoned, or left out…
“Meeting you made me realize a lot of things, and I began to realize and believe that, in the end, it’s not about our accomplishments, fame, wealth, riches, and other material things.
“All of those are just temporary. I began to understand that the true meaning of life is finding the one you are meant to spend this beautiful life [with].
“Because I’ve learned that the meaningful things in life are never temporary and I know in my heart, you and I are destined to live on.
“They say penguins only have one mate in their entire life, and propose by giving their mate a pebble.
I promise to be your penguin, the one who search for the perfect stone, and I promise to love you until my last breath and never leave your side. I promise to take care of you.
“I love you so much. My best friend turned into girlfriend, then fiancée, and now to be my wife.
“You cannot imagine the amount of joy you have sparked into my life, and for that, I’m forever grateful to you and to God.”
2. Maxene’s vows for Rob:
“My dearest Robby, I will never forget the very first time I saw you. It felt like I was in a movie. You were performing at one of your gigs, and I could really feel your passion as you played your guitar.
“The music that you were playing was so enthralling and beautiful that I couldn’t keep my eyes off of you. The spotlight was on you, and it was as if we were the only two people in the room.
“There was just something so magnetic about you.
At the time, I had made a promise to myself that next time I would fall in love, it would be with someone who could make me feel butterflies in my stomach and make my heart skip a beat.
“At nung nakilala kita, hindi mo lang pinatibok ang puso ko. Pinatibok mo rin ang aking pulso—you gave my life meaning.
“When I met you, every thing just started making sense. You saw a glimmer of hope in me when majority, including myself, had already given up.
“I was a broken and aimless person, but your love and daily devotion gave me so much reason and direction.
“Through you, I have found so much purpose, and that purpose has been my compass to discovering the depths of my heart.
“You showed me how easy and natural love should be. You never asked me once to change anything about myself.
“You allowed love to speak its beautiful language. You showed me its true meaning. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
“To me, you are the definition of love because you’ve showed me what it’s like to truly do so without condition.
“I honestly still don’t know what I did to deserve you, but I feel like for every thing right I’ve done in my life, you are my greatest reward and blessing.
“There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t wish that you had met my dad. If he [were] here today, I just know how much he would love you.
“The way you’re deeply passionate about music was how he was with his. The way you love your dog Chewie was the way he loved his chihuahua Gringo.
“The way you love and take care of me was the way he loved and took care of my mom and our family.
“And as I stand before you on this special day, in front of all our family and friends, I say without a doubt that Papa is happy.
“I can feel it in my heart and soul that he loves for the way that you love me.
“The kind of person that you are truly deserves all the happiness in the world, and I will spend the rest of my life trying my best to fulfill this.
“I promise to wake up with you in the morning and have breakfast with you because I know how much you love your coffee.
“I promise to do yoga with you and join you in all the things you want us to do.
“I promise to always let you play your music at maximum volume and listen to every song that you make because I will always be your number one fan.
“I promise to keep supporting you and your dreams because I believe in you.
“I also promise to be more patient and understanding because I know that we will always have our differences, and that’s okay.
“I promise to cheer you on through all the ups and downs as we ride this roller coaster of life. You are my better half, my soulmate, and my best friend.
“Thank you for helping me realize my worth and inspiring me to become a better person every day. Thank you for never giving up on me, thank you for never giving up on us.
“If I could pledge my love to you for the next hundred years, I would because one lifetime is not enough. I love you, Robby. Always. Every day.”
