The Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago Wedding

It looks like wedding vows renewal ceremony are a thing for the Philippine Senators these days.  Couple of weeks ago Sen. Bong Revilla renewed his vows with his Governor wife Lani Mercado and now Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago after 40 years of marriage with his husband Usec. Jun Santiago.

What baffles me was the presence of Heart Evangelista as Sen. Santiago’s Maid of Honor she’s in no way a politician.  While President Noynoy Aquino as the Best Man.   The event was packed with the Philippine politics most controversial ex-Presidents like President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and President Joseph Ejercito Estrada.

UPDATE: OMG! I’m blushing lolz Sen. Santiago just answered my Tweet a few minutes after this post!

senmiriam Miriam Santiago @earthlngorgeous Heart Evangelista is like a daughter to me. Her parents are also my friends.

Here’s a photo of the Maid of Honor and the Best Man, Heart Evangelista and P’Noy (ang bagong loveteam?) mwahaha!

The wedding was held at Manila Cathedral last night, June 20, 2011 and reception was held at Manila Hotel.

Only Sen. Santiago can put together all these personalities in one place.
