It is certainly a love-filled February for Love Marie Ongpauco, more popularly known as Heart Evangelista.

 

On February 15, the day after the Startalk host’s birthday on Valentine’s Day, she will wed Philippine Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero at Balesin Island Club, a picturesque private resort off the Eastern coast of Luzon.

 

Chiz proposed to Heart with a heart-shaped heirloom ring in front of his family and their close friends in his hometown of Sorsogon in August last year.

 

The couple has since been busy with wedding preparations for a small, private ceremony taking place in Balesin followed by a bigger reception in Manila.

 

The blushing bride-to-be has been documenting their wedding journey on her Instagram account @iamhearte, counting down the days with the hashtags #144daystoahappyheart and #ChizHeart21515.

 

Heart’s gown at the Balesin ceremony will be created especially for her by Dubai-based designer Ezra Santos, while she will be wearing a dress from world-renowned designer Monique Lhuillier at the Manila reception and a Mark Bumgarner creation for the after party.

 

Her 15 bridesmaids consists of her closest friends from high school as well as those in show business, including Kapuso actresses Carla Abellana, Jennylyn Mercado, Lovi Poe, Solenn Heussaff and Alessandra de Rossi.

 

Their upcoming wedding is certainly the highlight of a very fruitful journey for Heart who has celebrated a lot of milestones in the past year including three successful solo art exhibits locally and abroad, but it is also just the beginning of the Kapuso star’s journey to “forever.”

 

As one of GMA Network’s brightest stars, Heart is a regular on the variety show Sunday All Stars and co-hosts Startalk, the longest-running showbiz-oriented talk show which air on GMA’s flagship international channel GMA Pinoy TV. She is also the host of Weddings TV, a show that offers wedding tips and ideas for brides-to-be on GMA Life TV, the second international channel of GMA Network.
