After four long years of being lovers, YouTube content creators Junnie Boy and Vien Iligan finally tied the knot last March 28, 2022, at the Divine Mercy Parish in Brgy. Tibig, Silang, Cavite.
Star-studded guests rocked the picturesque Alta Veranda de Tibig after the emotional wedding ceremonies at the church.
Join VIYLine Media Group (VMG) as we give you exclusive access to what transpired during the wedding reception. We also got to chat with some of the guests, who shared their well wishes and congratulatory messages to the new Mr. and Mrs. Velasquez.
Spectacular venue, food, and star-studded guests
Junnie Boy and Vien knew how to treat their guests with a bang as they got to experience the very sossy Alta Veranda de Tibig in Silang.
As guests arrived, they were served various canapé (pika-pika) within the ranges of the couple’s go-to street foods to too-expensive-to-eat-and-buy snacks served in a buffet style.
VMG got a chance to speak with Junnie Boy’s eldest sister Venice Velasquez, who shared her happiness as Vien is now officially part of the Velasquez family.
Junnie’s youngest sister Pat Velasquez-Gaspar and husband Boss Keng also jived in their wishes for the couple to give Mavi a sibling.
Of course, VMG did not let the occasion pass without getting the message of Cong TV and Viy Cortez for the newlyweds. The soon-to-be mom and dad were visibly elated for Junnie and Vien as they wished them all the love and support they could give for the power couple.
Also present at the star-studded wedding of the year were social media personalities like Inah Evans, Agassi Ching, Jai Asuncion, Dr. Alvin Francisco, Tryke Gutierrez, Alodia Goisengfiao, and more.
The OG Team Payaman members were also present as they were all part of the wedding entourage. Vlogger Chino Liu (a.k.a Krissy Achino/ Aling Cely) lit up the crowd with his dashing look, jesting a “malaking sana all” to the newlyweds.
Fun reception program
Before the program officially started, renowned wedding host, Host Jam, conducted several games while Juan Carlos Catering began serving appetizers per table.
Over 200 people welcomed and cheered the newlyweds as they entered the ballroom area styled by Awesome events & Gianina Candice.
Junnie Boy and Vien walked through the grand staircase with confetti peppering their walkway to the stage. The program then proceeded with a solemn prayer led by Team Payaman’s Burong (Aaron Macacua), followed by a very heart-warming oath-taking that propelled everyone to stay within the course of the event proper (In short, walang uuwi agad! LOL!)
Host Jam introduced each Principal Sponsors in a red-carpet Hollywood style, while both Team Groom and Team Bride performed some show-stopping TikTok dance craze.
Junnie Boy and Vien then grazed the dance floor on cue as they shared their first dance as a married couple. It was followed by a steamy garter ceremony where Junnie performed a strip-tease dance for Vien while removing her bridal garter.
Pop-Rock Band Nobita, composed of Jaeson Felismino, Mark Quintero, Sam Aquino, Roman Lester Moñegas, and Richmond Bancolita, serenaded the newlyweds and guests with their hit songs.
The momentous event was preceded by the much-awaited prosperity dance, where guests showered Junnie and Vien with monetary blessings.
For the shock of the night, Junnie revealed that Best Man Cong Velasquez and Bridesmaid Viy Cortez gave them a whopping consolidated amount of PHP 500,000! Paawer!
“Masaya kayo? ‘De, Walang iiyak! Sana Maabot nyo ang mga pangarap nyo unti-unti. Tulad ng sabi ni Father kanina, sa relasyon, kasama ninyo si God. Tandaan n’yo, nasa kabilang kwarto lang si kuya,” Cong said.
Likewise, the newlyweds’ parents advised Junnie and Vien with the Iligan patriarch humorously teasing Vien: “mag-hinay-hinay sa pagiging Katipunera!”
Meanwhile, Junnie Boy’s mom (a.k.a Mama Revlon) reminded the couple to always put God at the center of their relationship.
The fun and romantic event concluded with Junnie and Vien thanking all the guests for sharing the joyous moment. Junnie mentioned everyone in attendance, while Vien could not hold back tears of joy as she recounted and thanked all the people who made their dream wedding possible.
Again, on behalf of VIYLine Media Group, congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Maron Velasquez Jr.! Mabuhay ang bagong kasal!
