Three months after their big White Out wedding socials, Ron Cantiveros, publisher of Filipino Journal married our good friend and former CKJS part time announcer Donna Medina on September 3rd, 2016 in a solemn ceremony at St Ignatius Church as witnessed by close family and friends that included Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman.
Glammed by Winnipeg style and make-up guru Tia Provici, Donna was stunning and radiant as she walked down the aisle with the whole entourage in deep blue and canary yellow motif.
Winnipeg’s premier event planner Just In Couture put together a well-organized wedding ceremony and lavishly decored party, adorned with white and silver backdrop and good music that were unique of the bride and groom. Justin and his team made it sure every small detail was taken cared of which made the event oh so elegant and special which explain why his company is known to be winning awards.
Held at the RBC Convention Centre and hosted by CKJS co-announcer Chester Pangan, party was highlighted by a lot of entertaining productions starting with the opening performance by the entire wedding party, led of course by Ron and Donna themselves; video prod with greetings from families and celebrity friends of Donna from former network, GMA 7; and sneak footages of their trip to different places in the Philippines. And by the way, I love the same-day edit wedding video by the creative and dedicated team of Mindscape Studios.
With tweeter hastgag #DonnaandRonFinally, the dream wedding (filled with countless selfies) served as venue for that rare big family reunion and get-together for both Licmo-Medina and Natividad-Cantiveros clans with guests coming from different parts of Canada, U.S., The Netherlands and the Philippines.
The Winnipeg Investors’ Football field served as a perfect setting for the post wedding video and photo shoot which tells a lot about Ron’s being a big fan of the Bombers and shows a glimpse of Donna’s passionate and adventurous side.
The fresh couple made a vow to a lifetime of love sharing the same passion that “The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
As first adventure as husband and wife, Donna and Ron went to Italy and visited some parts of Europe for a honeymoon grande!
Their love story started when they were introduced to each other at our CKJS radio booth during a Filipino Journal photo shoot a few years ago.
From all of us at CKJS Radio, Cheers to you Ron and Donna! A life of happiness and adventures as your journey as husband and wife begins.
Mabuhay ang Bagong Kasal!
I would like to thank the very talented Trish Palud for letting me share some of her lovely photos on our site. Trish and her team took care of Donna and Ron’s pre-nuptial, engagement and wedding photography and did a really amazing job.)
