October 21, 2009MANILA – Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas II has caught broadcaster Korina Sanchez by surprise when he unexpectedly kiss his fiancée during their wedding rehearsal at Sto. Domingo Church Tuesday night.

An excited Roxas explained that he could no longer wait for the big day. Roxas and Sanchez are set to exchange “I dos” on October 27.

The high-profile couple said they are happy that they will be able to share the most memorable day of their lives with people who “genuinely love us.”

Everything is set for the wedding ceremony.

Sanchez’s youngest sibling, Mickey, will give the bride away to the groom. The entourage is composed of their closest friends.

Eighteen big personalities from the public and private sectors will serve as godparents to Roxas and Sanchez.

Chief Justice Reynato Puno, ABS-CBN Chairman Eugenio "Gabby" Lopez III, former Senate President Jovito Salonga, and Roxas's running mate for the 2010 elections, Sen. Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, will be their “ninongs.”

Aquino III, who is running for President next year, used to date Sanchez.

"Ninangs" for the wedding include actress Rosa Rosal; broadcast journalist Cheche Lazaro; Helen Costales, who is the best friend of Sanchez's mother; as well as Baby Fores and Ruby Roxas, both aunts of the groom.

Rosal has been a long-time advocate of blood donation for the Philippine National Red Cross, for which she has received various awards.

She reportedly turned emotional when asked about the upcoming wedding, and vowed she would "pray for the couple as long as she lives."

After his loss in the presidential elections in 1992, Salonga became an anti-corruption crusader and an advocate of reforms in the judiciary.

Puno recently waged a campaign for a moral force that would help elect clean and honest candidates in the May 2010 polls.

Thousands of people are expected to show up at Sto. Domingo Church to witness the ceremony.

The couple cancelled the planned grand reception at the Araneta Coliseum and decided instead to donate the money to the victims of Ondoy (Ketsana) and Pepeng (Parma).

However, the couple will hold a small "meet and greet" at the church courtyard, where refreshments and food will be served after the wedding ceremony.
