Today, January 22, actor Rocco Nacino announced on Instagram that he and his fiancée, athlete Melissa Gohing, are now married! One of his photos showed him and his new wife flashing their wedding bands on top of a ship. Rocco wrote in the caption: "Yes... we… did.. 21- 1 - 21. Meet my wife, Mrs. Melissa Gohing Nacino."
Naval ship wedding is not just a theme
Based on the post, the wedding was held yesterday, January 21, aboard the naval ship BRP Davao del Sur which was docked at Pier 13 of the Manila South Harbor. If you take a closer look at Rocco, you'd notice that he's wearing a white naval uniform. This isn't all just a theme, though! ICYDK, Rocco has been a Philippine Navy reservist since 2019. In 2020, he was awarded the Tiger Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) as an honorary member of the Naval Special Operations Group of the Philippine Navy.
On Melissa's Instagram, she couldn't help but write a heartfelt letter to her husband: "I don't just want to marry you to be with you forever and live happily ever after but because marriage is not easy & it's a lifetime of ups & downs. You're the only person I know I can go through all those hurdles with. It's hard work but it will be worth it. You are my once in a lifetime. Love, your Mrs. Nacino"
Nice Print Photo also posted more pictures of the ceremony where they said it was their "first time to ever cover a wedding on a ship, more so a naval ship."
On November 20, 2020, Rocco and Melissa got engaged at Hinulugang Taktak, Antipolo City, in Rizal. During the sunset proposal, their friends played Melissa's favorite Christian song on the saxophone and guitar. Congrats and best wishes, you guys!
