Though traditional in many aspects, Winchell and John opted for a modern twist with a first look session. While they didn’t share this moment with each other, Winchell shared a heartfelt moment with her father, a touching moment before the ceremony that awaited.

At the Christ Our Light Catholic Church in Cherry Hill, NJ, family and friends gathered to witness Winchell and John exchange vows. The ceremony, steeped in Filipino traditions, was a testament to their heritage and commitment to one another. From the exchange of coins symbolizing prosperity to the unity candle ceremony signifying the merging of their lives, every moment was steeped in meaning and love.
