MANILA, Philippines – After 8 years as a couple, TV host-actress Toni Gonzaga and director Paul Soriano are all set for their wedding and party, June 12 at Toni’s hometown of Taytay, Rizal.
The couple have been discreet about the details of their wedding, but we do have a few details. According to a press release from ABS-CBN, Toni will wear a Vera Wang gown, while Paul will wear a Hugo Boss suit.
Toni’s sister Alex Gonzaga will be the maid of honor, while Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano will serenade the couple.

Toni met Paul 8 years ago during a concert of Gary Valenciano. After visits to the sets of shows and a courtship which led to meeting Toni's parents, the two became an official couple. Paul has also directed two of Toni's music videos, which includes "Catch Me I'm Fallin'".
In February of this year, Toni confirmed that Paul proposed to her near her birthday. Toni said that once she is married to Paul, he will become her top priority. (READ: Will there be a prenup for Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano?)
