Cory and Ninoy's Wedding Anniversary

Today is the 55th wedding anniversary of the country's greatest couple.

Senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino and Corazon "Cory" Cojuangco were joined together in Holy Matrimony at the Our Lady of Sorrows Church in F.B. Harrison Street in Pasay City on October 11, 1954. Cory's gown was done by famous Philippine fashion designer Pitoy Moreno. President Ramon Magsaysay stood as their sponsor.

On their 19th wedding anniversary, a beautiful poem "I Have Fallen In Love With The Same Woman Thrice" was written by Ninoy for Cory which Filipino Balladeer Jose Mari Chan made into a song. Christian Bautista revived this song in his latest album featuring the songs of Jose Mari Chan.
