Following her big announcement that she is now married, photos from the bridal shower of actress and social media star Alex Gonzaga have been released online.
On his Instagram page, event stylist Gideon Hermosa shared photos from Alex's "tropical lush bridal shower" as he congratulated her and her now-husband, politician Mikee Morada, on their wedding.
Based on his posts, the intimate event was hosted by Alex's sister, actress-host Toni Gonzaga, and attended by her family and close friends.
After being a couple for more than four years, Alex and Mikee tied the knot in a simple wedding ceremony at the former's residence in Taytay, Rizal last November.
The two made the announcement in a vlog entry published last Sunday, January 17.
"Kinasal na po kami. Isa na po akong misis. Isa na po akong maybahay, isa na po akong wife,” said Alex.
“November kami kinasal ni Mikee. Dito kami kinasal. Simple lang, kasama lang yung family and parents namin,” she added.
Alex then explained why she and Mikee decided to keep their wedding a secret.
“It’s because we wanted to celebrate together as a family muna. And siyempre alam namin ‘yung timing din. Tsaka alam namin na may pandemic. So, we wanted to keep it to ourselves for a little a while to celebrate," she said.
Saying their wedding is really for their parents, Alex went on: "Kasi siyempre ‘yung nangyayari ngayon, it’s very uncertain. Hindi natin alam kung kelan matatapos ang pandemic. So siyempre gusto namin to seal the deal na nandito kami lahat, na nandito tayo lahat."
According to Alex, while they didn’t get to experience their dream ceremony due to the pandemic, she and Mikee hope to have a bigger wedding soon.
“Nirespeto ni Mikee ‘yung parents ko, ‘yung parents niya. So, I’m very happy also that he did it. We will see you all next year, by God’s grace, in a bigger wedding," said Alex.
