Iza Calzado married Ben Wintle yesterday, December 19. The couple had a beautiful beach wedding ceremony at Club Paradise in Coron, Palawan.

We noticed, however, that the actress walked down the aisle on her own. In a 2013 interview with Ricky Lo for The Philippine Star, she said that she lost both of her parents to cancer. Her mom, Mary Ann Ussher, passed away when she was 19 and her dad, Lito Calzado, also succumbed to the illness when she was 29.

When asked what she missed most about them, Calzado 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, the bride's bouquet contained photos of her late parents.

Another heartwrenching event happened during the couple's wedding reception. In a video posted by Vicki Belo, Calzado's close friend and bridesmaid Sunshine Dizon presented her with a gift from her late mom: a diamond bracelet. Ussher 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 said. Iza shed some tears as her bridesmaid hugged her and handed her the gift. Watch the sweet moment below:
