8 Things About the Maxene Magalona-Rob Mananquil’s Wedding that We’re Swooning Over

First celeb wedding of the year!

| January 12, 2018

5. Maxene and Rob’s wedding vows

In a world of negativity, Rob promised that he will always be Maxx’s protector. “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.”

Meanwhile, Maxene thanked Rob for loving her exactly the way she is. When I met you, everything just started making sense. You saw a glimmer of hope in myself, when the majority, including myself, had already given up…. You showed me how easy and natural love should be. You never once asked me to change anything about myself…. I honestly still don’t know what I did to deserve you, but I feel that for every right I’ve done in my life, you are my greatest reward and blessing.”

Whoever’s cutting onions, stop already!

6. The star shower

The typical confetti? Fun! But a star shower? Even better! We loved that the guests threw silver stars at the couple as they were exiting the ceremony, instead of the usual flower petals or rice. A simple touch, but it definitely added to the event’s charm.

7. The quirky hashtags

We love the fun wordplay on Rob and Maxx’s name with their hashtag #iRobyouveryMaxx. The couple also had a more “formal” hashtag, #MagalonaMananquil, which also wins points for alliteration.


8. The musical performances

Gary Valenciano had everyone grooving and cheering as he sang his hits, brother-of-the-bride Elmo Magalona and his date Janella Salvador performed Francis M’s Cold Summer Nights, Maxene took the stage with new husband Rob on the guitar and brother Frank on drums to sing Kaleidoscope World, and even the bride’s mom Pia Magalona got on stage to sing with her sons. What a way to cap off the celebration!
