After years of being in Show Business, Toni Gonzaga’s heart was captured by one of the most eligible Bachelors today, Direk Paul Soriano. Direk Paul is a multi-awarded director. He won the best director and best screenplay awards in FAP awards for the movie “Thelma”. He also directed the movies, “A journey home”, “Transit” and “Kid Kulafu”.
The couple had been together for 8 years before finally tying the knot on June 12. The wedding was held at Toni Gonzaga’s church in Taytay. Toni said that it was her life long dream to get married in the same church. Like any other weddings, one of the most awaited highlights of the event is the saying of Vows. Direk Paul’s message was simple and yet full of love. His very words were: “When I saw you come down that aisle, I saw everything; my future, the beautiful mother of my children in the future — that was the rest of my life right there”. This words nearly brought Toni to tears, but what was unexpected was that when Toni finally said her vows, Direk Paul was the one in tears. Toni said: ““Paul, as I look back, I couldn’t help but wonder why you never left. Our relationship was never easy. And every time I would ask you, why are you choosing to stay with me? You would simply answer, because I love you.” These couples were tagged as Perfect. But Direk Paul said, they were not perfect. They are just couples who choose to be with God rather than focus on each other.
People have high hopes for this couple considering that they are one of the celebrities who had a long-term relationship before getting married. They’re love and devotion to God and to each other would surely take them farther and longer from where they are now. After hearing wedding bells, the people are now waiting for Baby Showers and Christenings. Best wishes and God bless to this lovely couple.
