We noticed, however, that Iza walked down the aisle solo. In a 2013 interview with Ricky Lo for The Philippine Star, Iza shared that she lost both of her parents to cancer. Her mom passed away when she was 19 and her dad also succumbed to the illness when she was 29.
When asked what she missed most about them, Iza said, "I miss my mom's candor, her crazy antics, and even her mood swings! I miss my Dad's hugs, smile, stage-father ways, and even our arguments. I think when you lose someone you miss everything about them, even the things you disliked about them!"
For her wedding, Iza's bouquet had photos of her late parents! Our hearts can't take it.
And guys, something so sweet happened during Iza and Ben's wedding reception. In a video posted by Vicki Belo, Iza's close friend and bridesmaid Sunshine Dizon presented her with a gift from her late mom: a diamond bracelet. Apparently, Iza's mom had the bracelet stored away for safekeeping until the time came for her daughter to get married!
"I know it is something that you will really treasure forever. I love you very much," Sunshine reads. We see Iza crying as Sunshine hugs her and hands her the gift. We are also ~figuratively~ crying right now and it's not even lunch time yet! You HAVE to watch the sweet moment below:
