Richard Gutierrez and his celebrity partner for seven years, Sarah Lahbati, have finally announced that they’re getting married in March 2020.
The announcement was recently made by the celebrity couple through a save-the-date press conference held at ABS-CBN’s 9501 Restaurant. The two also revealed this upcoming big event in their life via production number at the variety show “ASAP Natin ’To”, where they shared that the ceremony will take place in Manila.
It was back in July 2017 when the 35-year-old actor proposed to Sarah Lahbat during their snowy trek of the mountainous Zermatt town Switzerland, Sarah’s place of birth.
The beautiful bride-to-be took to Instagram to share her excitement at that time by posting a photo with the caption, “The stars aligned in the universe, and this happened. I’m marrying my best friend.”
The long wait is over as the wedding bells will be ringing really soon. In the press conference proper, the Kapamilya actor also shared that he has planned to marry Sarah even earlier on, but the TV series La Luna Sangre came along, followed by their second baby boy, Kai.
But now that the two of them both felt that they were in a stable place in their careers and personal lives, it’s the perfect time for them to set their wedding.
“So, now, finally stable na kami, si Kai, one year-and-a half na and ah, we feel like it’s really the right time,” explained the future groom Richard, “So, ito na ’yong perfect opportunity for us to get married.”
He went on to share that he and Sarah consider changing their initial plan of having their wedding in Europe because they wanted all their loved ones here to attend their wedding.
“Originally, we were considering it in Switzerland or someowhere outside of the country. Pero na-realize din namin na we wanted all our family and friends to be there…malaki ’yong side ng pamilya ko sa Pilipinas, malaki din ang side ng family ni Sarah dito…mahirap ilipad lahat. Hindi namin mai-invite lahat. So, we figured na we’ll have the celebration here na kasama ang lahat ng mga mahal namin sa buhay,” Richard said.
They both had past relationships, but the actress admits that Richard was her first serious boyfriend.
Richard, on the other hand, said that Sarah is very different from his past relationships, “Basta si Sarah, naiiba sa lahat dahil siya lang ’yong minahal ko nang ganito at siya lang ’yong nagpasaya sa akin nang ganito.”
While their wedding is long overdue, Sarah and Richard believe that God planned it to happen that way. They also shared that other details about their wedding will be announced in staggered forms over the course of five months.
