A perfect weather of clear blue sky, bright sunshine and cool breeze completed the ambiance of the beach wedding of my palangga, suave Joey Server, and adorable Cacay Moras at Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu recently.

Cacay made her entrance in a gorgeous Jun Escario gown, stopping for a quick pose which left everyone giggling, dahlings.

Joey looked so in love as his bride walked down the aisle beside her son, Tristan, who then happily gave his mother’s hand in marriage, which highlighted the couple’s long relationship.

Après cocktails and lots of picture-taking, dinner was served in a très Armani-esque black, white and champagne tone. The speeches and toasts were done amid the glow of white Japanese lanterns and candlelit tables.

Everyone raved over the superb menu as wineglasses flowed with Manny Osmeña’s exceptional Discipulus Blanc, and Celebrus Brut, among others.

The couple capped the reception with their first dance, which was followed by awesome fireworks.

More invitees arrived for the après bash at Ibiza Beach Club, Mövenpick’s party hub where the popular Cebu band Johnnie and the Walkers got everyone grooving on the dance floor. DJs Manolo Aballe and Maxie Perez added excitement to the music.

Manny O. graciously opened a bottle of Château Mouton Rothschild ’66 for a select group.

Flowers were by Pink Flora’s Pinky Chang while the cake was by Trina Ang. The bride’s hair was done by Wenwen Zaspa.

Après years of my asking them, “Well, when is the big day?”—it finally came for the lovebirds Joey and Cacay.

Cheers, palanggas!

Mystique Masquerade Ball

Mega magazine mounted one the grandest and most magnifique events of the month. Produced in partnership with Downy Parfum, the “Mega Mystique Masquerade Ball” was held at the Rizal Ballroom of Makati Shangri-La hotel.

The occasion coincided with the revelation of Iza Calzado as the mystery cover girl in Mega’s August issue.

Dresses were flaunted and masks were shown off as the chic crowd, plus the same social victims, filled up the ballroom and helped themselves to the totally divine menu selections of Makati Shangri-La.

Opera singer Robert Seña was a powerful presence as he courted guests with lovely songs including “The Phantom of the Opera piece “All I Ask of You.”

CLAUDIA Barretto, Cloie Syquia, Trisha Centenera, Downy brand manager Nicole Villarojo and Rima Ostwani

Downy brand manager Nicole Villarojo and Mega magazine editor in chief, my “royal cousin” Sari Yap, talked about “the strong partnership with One Mega Group.”

Everyone raised their glasses of bubbly for a toast while the stage was magically transformed into a grand mansion with the scent of an alluring parfum. There was a deafening silence until “Lady Mystique Iza Calzado” appeared in a stunning Patrick Galang outfit.

It was definitely a night to remember.
