Chino and Kat Vaflor’s wedding was held at Savana Farm Tagaytay by Solange in the city of Tagaytay, about 10 miles from the still erupting Taal Volcano.

Evan told CNN that he and his team were constantly checking social media for any updates about the Taal Volcano.
“We were actually nervous because while working we kept on checking social media for updates on the volcanic eruption,” he said. “So we were actually aware of the warnings and escalating levels that was being announced real time.”
“We also discussed discreetly among ourselves what we should do when worst comes to worst.”
