Magnolia Hotshot Rodney Brondial picked a perfect time to make longtime girlfriend Caryl May Adriatico his wife.
While it may appear to be the opposite, seeing as Magnolia is right smack in the middle of a tied and heated Championship series against San Miguel, Brondial actually has the blessing of head coach Chito Victolero.
"Kasi I think for the last three weeks, every other day kami naglalaro eh. So mas magandang makapahinga yung mga players. Kalimutan muna yung basketball," Victolero said after Game 2.
Brondial, the former sixth overall pick of the 2014 PBA draft obviously obliged, and tied the knot during a short break, even inviting some Magnolia stars to attend his wedding.
There to witness the Brondial union were PJ Simon, Ian Sangalang, Paul Lee, Marc Barroca, and injured veteran Marc Pingris.
The veterans looked like they enjoyed the break as well, posing for photos and congratulating the newly-wed couple.
Game 3 won’t be until Sunday, so Brondial definitely has some time to soak in his new life as a husband, before training resumes.
Their wedding day threads bore some resemblance to the now-iconic wardrobe from Beauty and the Beast, and it couldn’t be more apt as they look like they’re definitely set for a storybook journey as a couple.
