Among those invited were former President Joseph Estrada, fashion designer Pitoy Moreno, bowling champion Paeng Nepomuceno, top composer Vehnee Saturno, Bayan Muna Rep. Satur Ocampo, Interior and Local Government Secretary Ronaldo Puno, former Senator Letty Ramos Shahani, former socioeconomic planning secretary Ralph Recto, Regal Films matriarch Mother Lily Monteverde, US Ambassador Kristie Anne Kenney, Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri, broadcasters Bernadette Sembrano, Ted Failon, Julius and Christine Babao, former Senate President Franklin Drilon, Lopez family patriarch Oscar Lopez, and Ayala Corp.’s Fernando Zobel.

The wedding was supposed to be held at the Araneta Coliseum but the power couple decided to make it simple and donate part of the P3-million budget to typhoon Ondoy’s victims.
