Contrary to the traditional white bridal gowns, Quigaman wore a beige gown created by fashion designer Veejay Floresca.

Celebrities including Gerald Anderson, Maja Salvador, Valery Concepcion, Jason Abalos, Carlene Aguilar and Paolo Paraiso were part of the entourage. Actor Luis Alandi was Alcaraz’s best man.

Among the principal sponsors were former Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri and ABS-CBN channel head Cory Vidanes.

Quigaman walked down the aisle, which was created over a swimming pool, to a rendition Rascal Flatt’s “Bless The Broken Road.”

In an interview with “The Buzz” before the wedding, Alcaraz said he was nervous and excited at the same time now that he’s finally marrying the love of his life.

“Excited at the same time kinakabahan in a good way din naman. Sana people will pray for a good weather ngayon and sana pray na habambuhay kami magmahalan ni Lara,” he said.

Alcaraz revealed he and Quigaman were both hands-on in their wedding preparations.
