Despite being with the bride-to-be Heart Evangelista every week, her Startalk family still managed to throw her a surprise Hollywood-themed bridal shower last January 13 at Fernbrook Gardens in Las Piñas City.
With TV host-eventologist Tim Yap and Tessa Prieto-Valdes as hosts, the shower was attended by GMA Network executives together with Heart’s loved ones, colleagues, and closest friends in the industry including Lovi Poe, Alessandra De Rossi, and Carla Abellana.
Kris Lawrence serenaded Heart with a soulful rendition of All of Me while GMA Senior Vice President for Entertainment Lilybeth G. Rasonable, Donita Rose, Iza Calzado, Kylie Padilla, and Rhian Ramos gave their gifts and well-wishes.
Sending their love through video messages were Heart’s closest friends, including Solenn Heussaff, Jennylyn Mercado, Sarah Lahbati, Iya Villania, Camille Prats, and GMA Kapuso Foundation EVP and COO Ms. Mel Tiangco.
Aside from the presence of Heart’s sister Camille Ongpauco, Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero also made the night more special by surprising his wife-to-be.
Heart and Chiz will be married on February 15 at Balesin Island Club, Quezon Province.
