Angeli and Mark Lester practically grew up together and, in the process, became each other’s best friends. Their love story began when they started dating in high school. It was are full of heartaches, joy, and laughter. Though the two were different in so many ways, they were somehow right for each other. As they say, opposites attract.
After high school, Mark Lester went to Manila while Angeli stayed in Tacloban. Although they went their separate ways for a time, they continued to keep in touch with each other. On October 11, 2008, he mustered up the courage to ask her if she could be his girlfriend again. Fortunately, it was meant to be the second time around. Back in each other’s lives, Angeli decided to transfer to Manila to be closer to him.
Shortly after, Mark Lester flew to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Indeed, being in a long-distance relationship was complicated, but they had to make it work, and they did. She passed the bar, and he became a licensed architect.
On June 11, 2018, after nine long years, Mark Lester finally proposed to Angeli. And thanks to God, after 13 years together, On Valentine’s day this year, they finally got married! The pair celebrated with closest friends and family, starting with the ceremony at St Anthony of Padua Parish, followed by a dinner reception at Club Ananda. The day was fantastic, but what made the couple’s wedding so wonderful were the beaming smiles that never left either of their faces the entire day and through the night.
