Long-time partners Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati finally wed on March 14 in a civil ceremony at a five-star hotel.

“I have you. And it’s enough. It’s everything,” the couple announced their civil wedding at a five-star hotel via identical Instagram posts. 

“Thank you, Lord for today. ❤️ The gathering to celebrate with our loved ones will have to wait because we care more about everyone’s safety and health. ?,” they added.

The couple earlier announced that they were postponing their grand wedding amid the COVID-19 situation in the country. Their high-profile guest list would have included President Rodrigo Duterte, who is supposed to be one of the principal sponsors.
