Spartans! Prepare for battle. For tonight, we dine in… a wedding!
The 300 Spartan-themed wedding in Morong, Rizal recently made rounds online.
Vince and Dollzen Miraflor exchanged vows in a modest outdoor ceremony surrounded by family and loved ones, ditching the white gown and barong in favor of capes and robes.
The groom channeled his inner Leonidas by dressing up as his own Spartan army, replete with spears and shields, with his groomsmen.
Netizens welcomed the innovative concept and even praised the groom’s toned appearance, deeming him deserving of the washboard abs-revealing costume.
Meanwhile, the bride wore an ethereal headpiece and queenly robes, as well as golden cuffs and jewels, to look majestic.
If you’re wondering why there’s a 300-style pattern, it’s because the Miraflors are both professional fighters: Dollzen is a professional boxer, while Vince is a competitive muay thai fighter. When their coach matched them up as drill partners at a mixed martial arts facility, they met.
In reality, immediately after his first Muay Thai bout in Thailand in 2019, Vince proposed to Dollzen.
The wedding venue owner was very supportive to the couple, putting all hands on deck to complete the preparations and address any issues that arose — especially since the couple brought all 12 of their dogs to the wedding.
