Be ready to cry your hearts out before watching Derek Ramsay and Ellen Adarna’s emotional exchange of vows captured in their official wedding film.
On Sunday, November 14, Bob Nicolas, the couple’s wedding videographer, released Derek and Ellen's same day edit wedding video on YouTube and across his official social media platforms.
The blushing bride Ellen beautifully conveyed her genuine love for Derek and the spectrum of peaceful emotions she’s feeling in her vows which she had handwritten herself.
“When I do not seem to know what’s okay or not, what’s right or wrong, here, there, left, right, the noise, the confusion. All I know is that when I close my eyes, when I focus on myself, when I focus on us and I meditate, it’s you,” she told Derek.
“My mind when it’s silent, my heart when it’s calm, and my soul when it’s down or when it’s alive, it’s always you. There’s no perfect person, it’s just the one that I choose, the one that’s worth fighting for. It’s you,” declared Ellen while holding back tears.
In his vows, Derek recalled the moment when he opened up to his parents about his plans to marry Ellen. Even though his parents initially approached Derek’s decision with a particular hesitancy, they eventually realized “how serious Derek was.”
“When I told my parents that I wanted to marry you, they asked me why, because they felt it was too fast and too soon, and I told them, 'In my 44 years have I ever mentioned the ‘M’ word to you guys?' I guess that question made them realize how serious I was and how happy I was to have you and how you’ve made me,” he said.
The actor also mentioned that his 18-year-old son Austin was in full support of his decision.
“Even my son Austin, who was the first person I told, was happy about this decision and finally called me ‘Dad’ for the first time,” an emotional Derek shared.
The exact moment of Derek tearing up as Ellen walked down the aisle at dusk was also documented in the film. Ellen quickly turned emotional as she was strutting gracefully towards her groom.
“So to answer your question ‘why me?’ I’m sure alam mo na. You always say it naman with complete confidence, ‘di ba? ‘I’m perfect.’ And you are right. I could never have found a more perfect person to love than you,” Derek assured his bride.
He continued, “I have no doubts when it comes to our relationship. I have no doubts with what I feel for you and Elias. Despite the speed of everything, I have never been so sure about anything in my life. I have fallen so deeply in love with you.”
Derek and Ellen, who first confirmed their relationship back in February, tied the knot on Thursday, November 11, in a gorgeous sunset wedding in Rancho Bernardo Luxury Villas and Resort, Bataan.
Derek proposed to Ellen last March, just about two months after they started dating.
They kept their wedding date a secret even as they sent out their “save the date” invitations in September and posted their prenup photos in October.
