“THE new chapter is a never ending sleepover with your favorite person in the world.”
That’s how NLEX star Kevin Alas and PBA courtside reporter Selina Dagdag described what’s ahead of them as a newly married couple as they officially tied the knot today, September 8, 2020.
“Immensely exciting. With all that is happening I think we are both just so grateful we get to marry each other. We are in awe of how good God has been to us,” the new Mrs. Alas told SPIN Life.
According to Selina, the celebration was a small but meaningful gathering with only their immediate families invited.
The NLEX Road Warriors guard added: “[I'm] very excited because [marrying] Selina is a dream come true for me. Things are going to be a lot different now. Spending time with my wife Selina now as in every day and every night na. That makes me excited to embark this journey with her.”
While the pair had planned a church wedding, the two were just as enthusiastic to have a civil wedding for now. They revealed that a Catholic marriage would be next once circumstances permit.
San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora officiated their civil wedding.
With Catholics celebrating September 8 as the birthday of the Virgin Mary, today became extra special for them. After all, they shared that their faith was at the center of their relationship.
“It’s a reminder for us to set our eyes on things above. At the end of the day, God and our relationship with Him are still infinitely better and more worthy of a celebration than our love, our marriage, or our life together,” they added. “We are blessed that we get to celebrate our civil Wedding with our family. That's what's important I think. The gift of love and family.”
