It was the perfect wedding, a beautiful prelude to summer in the tropics. Dubbed “Ëœthe wedding of the year,’ the grand destination affair had a posh guest list jetting off to one of the most beautiful island getaways in the world. The ceremony was swoon-worthy against a sunset vista of Boracay’s famed azure skies and seas, the beach wind making palm fronds cast dancing shadows on the sand as the couple recited their wedding vows with the pastor proclaiming in the end, “I now pronounce you husband and husband.”

Fashion designer Francis Libiran and entrepreneur Christian Mark Jacobs, longtime lovers became life partners last March eighteen through elegant””and much-anticipated””marriage rites in the presence of their respective families and friends.



Predictably, the gorgeous grooms wore Francis Libiran. Dapper and dashing were they in their custom, three-piece, navy blue suits designed by Francis himself. The highlight of the wedding was the couple’s exchange of their tasteful wedding bands””still crafted  by the designer through his Forever Francis Libiran collaboration with J’s Diamond Jewellery””after reciting their heartfelt wedding vows.



Sincere wishes and fond tears from the nearest and dearest to the couple’s hearts, sparklers and champagne toasts in the evening air, and laughter and dancing that lasted late into the night marked this special union the pastor so beautifully described earlier that afternoon: “May this ceremony also represent the idea that love comes in many forms and many manifestations, and while partnerships may look different on the outside, at the core of every relationship, there is the same love that weaves together this sacred beauty.”

What can we say? True love will always be in style. And, #LoveWins.
