Business magnate and New York graduate Joel Rustia recently gathered his dearest family and friends at the plush Manila Peninsula Hotel in Makati City for a fun and inspiring 50th birthday revelry.
With the presence of his loving wife Joy, Joel was definitely more than ecstatic to welcome another blessed year. Guests arrived in black and white formal wear, apt for the sophisticated evening.
With the theme “Evolution,” the biggest down to the tiniest detail of the party were all reflections of Joel’s charismatic personality and his hobbies, as well as the changes that molded him into the person that he is today.
Astounding venue décor and the most unique table centerpieces gave the guests a deeper insight into the magnificent life that Joel has lived for the past 50 years. Joel’s love for cars, pelota and martial arts were prominently and stylishly placed on each table leaving guests in awe. A bountiful spread of the most scrumptious dishes were also served during the sit-down dinner which was thoroughly enjoyed by the esteemed guests.
The evening was filled with cheer and laughter as the program was hosted by Laughline’s MC along with the equally comedic performer Donita Rose who had the guests in stitches with their hilarious antics.
Astounding musical performances ensued as powerful singer Jed Madela and the concert king Martin Nievera sang some of Joel’s favorite songs, followed by Power Dance’s foot-stomping dance number.
Joel’s daughters Tara and Kiana sang a heart-warming song for their father and wished him more blessings in the years to come.
Joel’s closest friends from business and entertainment industries were present to take part in this golden celebration of life, love and friendship. Seen at the party were celebrities Rina Reyes, Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera, and John Estrada and wife Priscilla.
More than just a birthday party, one can say that it was the perfect moment to celebrate Joel’s success in life as a father, friend and business genius.
