Here’s a look at Borgy Torre and Ka­t­rina Veloso’s des­ti­na­tion wed­ding in en­chant­ing Ba­colod city

In De­cem­ber of last year, Borgy Torre pro­posed to Ka­t­rina Veloso after a Christ­mas din­ner at Manila House, with Ka­t­rina’s fa­ther, Wick Veloso, proudly watch­ing it all un­fold. This pro­posal cul­mi­nated in the cou­ple’s wed­ding in July, marked by two days of fes­tiv­i­ties in Ba­colod, where the groom hails from. Wel­come cock­tails at The Ru­ins kicked off the cel­e­bra­tions, punc­tu­ated by speeches from mem­bers of the en­tourage and a light­ing of sparklers to wish the cou­ple well. “It was rain­ing be­fore we left for The Ru­ins,” re­calls Ka­t­rina. “But as soon as we got there, the rain stopped and a dou­ble rain­bow painted the sky.” The in­ti­mate wed­ding cer­e­mony took place the next day, at the Chapel of Sta Clara while the re­cep­tion was held at Mara­para Golf and Coun­try Club, with close to 275 at­ten­dees.

For their wed­ding, Borgy and Ka­t­rina chose a moody botan­i­cal theme, with lush green­ery and hang­ing bulbs serv­ing as the fo­cal points of the dé­cor. Guests were treated to sump­tu­ous Ne­grense spe­cial­i­ties like freshly cooked pi­ayas and frozen brazo de Mer­cedes, and free-flow­ing drinks. Ev­ery­one danced the night away, as the fes­tiv­i­ties stretched out un­til three in the morn­ing.

“It was rain­ing be­fore we left for The Ru­ins,” re­calls Ka­t­rina. “But as soon as we got there, the rain stopped, and a dou­ble rain­bow painted the sky”
