MANILA—When Dennis Trillo and Jennylyn Mercado tied the knot on November 15, 2021, nobody knew that there were lapses that transpired which were “no exception to the rule” in weddings and other celebrations.
On November 20, Saturday the couple revealed on their YouTube channel more details about their civil wedding, which was held at TGIS Studio owned by actress Kathryn Bernardo.
Jennylyn said that there were unforeseen circumstances that happened on their wedding day.
“Actually, yung wedding, morning pa lang, ang sakit na nung ulo ko. So hanggang Sunday morning, sabi ko, ‘Baby, parang iba pa rin yung pakiramdam ko.”
Dennis followed with, “Ang daming nangyari. Medyo stressed kami nung araw na yun.”
Jennylyn butted in, “Hindi ko in-expect na ganun din yung ano kasi nitong mga past few weeks, ang dami naming ginawang preparations.
“Siyempre, tinulungan ako ng best friend kong si Nice na asikasuhin lahat.”
The ceremony was delayed for an hour due to some factors like the influx of people.
Dennis recalled, “Umaga pa lang, may konting stress na dahil ang daming tao sa bahay.
“‘Tapos mas matagal pa yung preparasyon, di ba, kesa dun sa wedding mismo.”
Another unexpected occurrence was, it rained.
The Kapuso actor said, “Papunta na kami sa venue, bigla namang umulan. Buti na lang, malapit lang yung venue dito sa bahay.”
The couple apologized to the guests who were already at the venue.
Dennis said, “siyempre andun na yung mga tao, umuulan nang konti, medyo stressful na kasi tayo na lang talaga yung hinihintay.”
And the blooper of all bloopers during the wedding was, the groom brought the wrong box, which could have contained their wedding rings from Seph Vergara Fine Jewelry.
Jennylyn said, “Siyempre pumunta na tayo dun sa gazeebo. Andun na si Justice na 10 a.m. pa lang nandun na naghihintay.”
Their marriage was solemnized by Supreme Court Associate Justice Jhosep Lopez
Jennylyn added, “Hiningi ni justice, ‘Nasan na yung ring para i-ready na?’ bago mag-start yung ceremony.
“‘Tapos sabi nila, ‘Ito yung ring…’ ‘Tapos binigay nila yung box nung engagement ring, sabi ko, ‘Ay, hindi iyan!’
“‘Tapos nakita ko yung mukha ni Dennis parang, ‘Oh my God, mali yung nalagay ko…’
“Sabi ko, ‘Talaga naman…'”
Dennis explained, “Kaya nalito ako kasi yung isang box dun, walang laman. So kakamadali namin, ang nakuha kong box yung walang laman.
“So pagdating dun sa venue, aligaga nga… Ang dami ko ring iniisip nung araw na yun. So iba pala yung nadampot kong box. Yung nadampot kong box yung walang laman.”
Good thing, the venue’s location was only a few minutes away from their house.
But the couple remained composed throughout the intimate affair than stressing themselves out.
For them the most important thing was: “Tuloy ang kasal!”
Although the couple has been engaged since October 8, they announced their engagement on October 29, and also the actress pregnancy.
Both Jennylyn and Dennis have sons from their previous relationships—Alex Jazz, Jennylyn’s son with Patrick Garcia, now 13 years old; Calix, Dennis’ son with former beauty queen Carlene Aguilar, who is the same age as Alex Jazz.
