To mark 8 years of being married, Chesca and Doug shared sweet messages on Instagram and even renewed their vows on live television!
Chesca and Doug Kramer are the embodiment of #relationshipgoals for many. Their over 2 million followers on social media have followed their journey of parenthood with their three cute kids--Kendra, Scarlett, and Gavin--and have been inspired by each and every milestone they openly share. Now, they mark yet another chapter in their lives as Chesca and Doug celebrated their 8th wedding anniversary.
They tied the knot in October of 2008 after being together for five years.
"8 years with you today! Time does fly... The feelings I have for you today are the same of those of yesterday. I loved you for so many reasons then but now I love you for so many MORE reasons. You have remained consistent from day 1 and till this very day I have never seen an inch of boredom from you," wrote Chesca on Instagram. "As the years of our lives together go by I feel that your embraces are tighter, and your kisses sweeter...And though our time is no longer just ours I catch you spend the times you can gaze at me with more love and appreciation."
"All I ever wanted before was a family that will stay together. I realized today not all that stay together, love, are happy, share the same joy, and choose each other. What I wanted back then was so general but God showed me that there is so much more to that... and that is when I met you! Thanks for being my life's big surprise that I get to enjoy here on earth. May the years prove to our children that love is always alive when we choose God and choose to love each other in the midst of all that contradict that marriage means working things out no matter what!" continued Chesca. "My vow to you is my promise to you and my covenant to God! Lets stay devoted to each other this way... Always! I love you!"

On October 9, Doug shared this sweet collage of photos taken through the years. "Special dates indeed!" wrote Doug. "From the year we met 2003, to our wedding day exactly 8 years ago! The smiles remain the same, but the love, respect and appreciation are more than ever! 8 years is nothing, still so much to prove! I love you honey! Happy 8th anniversary! Happy 13 years together!"
During a recent interview on ABS-CBN's Magandang Buhay, they renewed their vows in front of a live studio audience.
"As I said during our wedding, October 9, 2008, that I will always place God at the center of everything and that is what I'll be renewing right now, to keep God number one and then my family and you, of course, at number 2, because if I put God first I know everything will follow so I love you, baby," said Doug.
"So, it's been 8 years now as a married couple," began Chesca, pausing when she noticed Scarlett who was kinikilig.
"And we've been together for 13 years," she continued, laughing. "So for me naman I'm still your number one cheerleader and even more now that we're married and I've seen the kind of man you are, before kasi I only saw you as my boyfriend who was becoming my husband, now I see the kind of husband that you are, the kind of father that you are, and how loving and responsible you are and leading your family to love and to know the Lord so because of that, because of your dedication and love to God, it is easy for me to submit because I trust you because you have trust for God. I love you so much."
"Love you baby," said Doug before giving Chesca a sweet kiss. Watch their TV guesting below and find out what Kendra, Scarlett, and Gavin's messages for them were.
