Engaged couple John Prats and Isabel Oli spent New Year in Los Angeles, California. John’s family also spent Christmas there while Isabel flew before New Year.
While there, Isabel also had her fitting for her wedding gown from Vera Wang. This is part of John’s gift for her. The other one was a plane ticket to the States. That was Isabel’s first time there.
The two will get married in Batangas this May. It will be held in the farm owned by the Prats. They are currently busy preparing for their big day.
John said he’s excited for their wedding day since there’s only four months to May. They are currently meeting with their florist, so they’ll know what theme they would like for their wedding day.
They haven’t finalized their wedding entourage yet, although they are sure Boy Abunda will be a part of it. They decided to get him because he has always been there for John, even in small things like giving him advices.
John explained that they chose their farm in Batangas because it will be easier to do a wedding there since it’s theirs. Also, they want their wedding to be intimate, so that they can feel at home.
John has gone through many relationships in the past. What makes Isabel special? John said that every relationship for him is special and different. However, this was the first time he realized that he wanted to be with one person for the rest of his life.
When he saw Isabel, he knew that he wanted to marry her. He didn’t plan it. He just knew, he said.
They first met each other on the set of the movie “It Might Be You” in 2004, but they only became officially together in 2013.
That time, John has just broken up with Heart Evangelista.
“I think it’s the perfect timing na parehas kami, na nasa same level na yun ang gusto namin.”
They haven’t talked about where they will have their honeymoon, although they are both excited for it. Right now, their focus is on the wedding itself.
They are choosing between Maldives, Europe or New York. They want to visit many places, so they have to talk about it first.
John said he will be supportive of Isabel whatever it is she wants to do after they get married. If she wants to be a housewife, that’s up to her. If she wants to go back to being an actress, that’s okay with John also.
