Cebu Living - - Social Diaries - By JUDE BA­CALSO

The lush el­e­gance of a plan­ta­tion, beau­ti­ful French Cre­ole ar­chi­tec­ture, and per­son­al­ized pomp and pageantry are hall­marks of south­ern hos­pi­tal­ity—the same vibe that pro­vided the set­ting to the wed­ding of Kristoff Ar­mand Espina Tan and Han­nah Lois Kan­gleon, which was of­fi­ci­ated at the sprawl­ing Espina es­tate on top of a hill in Mon­ter­razas.

“Toby and I met in Velez,” shared Han­nah. “We were class­mates all through­out our four years in col­lege and in med­i­cal school in CIM, but we be­came a cou­ple on our third year in nurs­ing school.”

Both train­ing un­der the depart­ment of surgery, hus­band and wife also de­scended from doc­tors: Toby is the son of Dr. Ar­mando Tan, a sur­geon, and Dr. Charisse Espina Tan (OB Gyne), while Han­nah’s par­ents are Dr. Ro­ge­lio Kan­gleon, also a sur­geon, and Dr. Carol Kan­gleon, the dean of Cebu Velez Col­lege of Nurs­ing.

Their wed­ding was co­or­di­nated by Cebu’s top wed­ding plan­ner Snoo­gie Reynes-Mata, with videog­ra­phy by Franz Ar­ro­gante and mu­sic by Cebu’s best wed­ding band On The Cover. The entourage’s gowns were de­signed by Roni Yu and the suits by Ed­win Ao.
