Maya dela Rosa (Jodi Sta. Maria) can now change her surname after tying the knot with Richard “Sir Chief” Lim (Richard Yap) in a fairy tale wedding ceremony on “Be Careful with My Heart” on Friday.
The two exchanged wedding vows at the Basilica de San Martin de Tours in Taal, Batangas.
Sir Chief promised to love Maya for the rest of his life.
“Maya, I vow to love you forever. To fulfill your dreams as you have fulfilled mine. To never give you any reason to doubt. To apologize if I make a mistake, and to apologize even if I don’t make a mistake. And most of all, to constantly remind you that it is not I who is the miracle in this relationship, but you, because you turn my whole world around.
“And I will be forever grateful to you, my miracle, because you found your way on that bridge more than a year ago. We had very different lives then, but that bridge brought you to me, and me to you. It was just like any other night, except that you came out of the blue. And just like that, my whole world changed. I changed.
“And although you like to call me Sir Chief, I want you to know that it is you who will always be my chief. My boss, my sun and my love, and I won’t have it any other way. I will love you until death do us part,” he said.
An emotional Maya, for her part, said, she will never leave Sir Chief’s side.
“Richard, pinapangako ko sa’yo na simula sa araw na ‘to, hindi mo na ulit mararamdaman na mag-isa ka o malungkot ka, kasi patatawanin kita kahit tiger mode ka pa. Dahil alam ko kahit bibihira kang tumawa o nakakunot ‘yung noo mo, ‘yung naniningkit ‘yang mga mata mo, alam kong punung-puno ‘yan ng pagmamahal hindi lang sa akin, pero para sa mga anak natin at para sa pamilya mo.
“Pinapangako ko rin na araw-araw kitang ipagtitimpla ng masarap na kape. At kahit magtampuhan tayo, hinding-hindi magbabago ‘yung lasa n’un, gaya ng pagmamahal ko sa’yo.
“Hinding-hindi mawawala ‘yung tiwala ko sa’yo, at sa kung anong meron tayo. Hindi kita iiwang mag-isa, hindi ako bibitaw. At kapit-bisig lang tayo simula sa araw na ‘to at hanggang sa pagtanda natin, at hanggang sa huli nating hininga. Mahal kita.”
Maya, who started out as the nanny of Sir Chief’s youngest child, is now a flight attendant who is married to the man of her dreams.
The lovely bride wore a long sleeve gown by Avel Bacudio, while Sir Chief donned a gray suit.
