They've been divided by oceans and continents, but for one special day, all the members of Kylie Padilla's immediate family gathered together to witness her and Aljur Abrenica say their "I do's."
Ever since Kylie's mom Liezl Sicangco arrived in the country in September, followed by the arrival of her older sister Queenie Padilla in October, we already called it: Were Kylie and Aljur getting married soon?
Yesterday, December 11, 2018, Kylie and Aljur tied the knot at Villa Milagros, an events venue in Rodriguez, Rizal. Thanks to Kylie's dad, Robin Padilla, who shared snippets of the wedding on his Instagram Live video, we got to see the bride's family complete, just as Kylie always dreamed it to be.
Robin and Liezl reunited to walk Kylie down the aisle. Queenie was the matron of honor, and her younger sister Zherileen Padilla flew in a couple of days before the wedding to stand as Kylie's maid of honor. Their only brother, Ali Padilla, was also present (he's all grown up!). Robin and wife Mariel Padilla's daughter, Maria Isabella, was a flower girl, and the newly-married couple's son, Alas Joaquin, was of course the ring bearer (Toddlers Isabella and Alas needed to take a break while the ceremony was happening.)

Liezl, Zherileen, and Ali are based in Australia. Queenie is based in Pakistan with her family.

In her speech during the reception, Kylie thanked everyone who attended for making time to celebrate with them. Aljur revealed that preparations for the wedding took only two weeks, which is amazing considering how magnificent the setup was.
"Gusto ko talgang makitang magkakasama yung pamilya namin," the bride shared. "Gusto ko talaga na may one day or one event na magkakasama lahat kami and will celebrate something very important," Kylie said.
"Masaya ako na andidito kayong lahat. Sobrang a dream come true, and sobrang pinasaya ako ng araw na ito kasi ito talaga yung hinihingi ko at pinagdadasal ko," Kylie said, adding that the event was also a thanksgiving to God for her family.
