Museum wedding, handwritten gowns, 'Sabrina'-inspired dress—all the details of Chi Gibbs' charming big day

Weddings are a perfect opportunity to show who you are as a couple. From the decor to the outfits, the food, down to the color palette, the details ideally should reflect your personalities and taste. And that is exactly true for entrepreneur and designer Alyssa "Chi" Gibbs and husband Anton Cruz.

Gibbs, daughter of OPM icon Janno Gibbs and actress Bing Loyzaga, finally got hitched to longtime boyfriend Cruz last Nov. 27 in what can be called "the funniest, Chiceeest, most stylish, and magical wedding" as per the bride's sister, Gabs Gibbs.

Sharing photos from the intimate occasion held at The Palm House at the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney, Australia, Gibbs wrote: “After a 5 year engagement, we finally got hitched.”

She wore a strapless Vania Romoff bustier gown with ruched detailing and finished the look with opera gloves and a tulle train. For her "something blue," she opted for a Tiffany blue platform heels to pair with her white Jacquemus Le Chiquito bag.

Cruz, meanwhile, looked dapper in an all-black JC Buendia suit.

Adding a more personal touch to the theme, Gibbs' bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses that she co-designed with Boom Sason. These dresses featured excerpts from the bride's vows and her favorite romantic quotes in her handwritting.

For the reception at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Buendia brought Gibbs' "Audrey fantasies to life" by recreating the Hollywood actress' black and white Givenchy gown from the 1954 film Sabrina.

Gibbs said that her polka dot tube dress with detachable train was so "fun" to dance in.

Their love for the classic film was also evident in their menu card, which has a cartoon drawing of the couple in their reception outfits.

Much like her brand Neon Island, the decors and flowers were in the form of splashy standout shades in unexpected color combinations.

The wedding cake, too, was on-theme. Chef JV Aspiras made the lemon zest-vanilla bean buttercake, while his husband JV handmade the sugar flowers and leaves to imitate the spring colors of Australia.
