Kryz Uy Was a Dainty Bride in Francis Libiran
The wedding bells are ringing for Kryz Uy and Slater Young today. The influencer couple tied the knot in Cebu, their hometown, surrounded by their family and friends—and as expected, Kryz was a glowing bride.
Kryz wore a custom Francis Libiran bridal frock that featured a deep sweetheart neckline with barely-there, criss-cross straps at the back. The bodice was made with delicate lace and fully embellished with floral appliqués, which served as the perfect touch for a body-hugging silhouette that accentuated Kryz’s curves down to her hips. Her dress cascaded into a subtle flare towards the hems, complete with arched panels to give the skirt more volume at the bottom part. To complete her bridal look, Kryz walked down the aisle with a long delicate lace veil attached to her hair.
Her groom Slater was also decked in Francis Libiran and looked dapper in his deep blue suit accented with a black bow tie.
Congratulations, Kryz and Slater!
