Happily married for
6 months!

Married on February 26th 2015 at Amisa, Lapu Lapu City, Cebu
----- -----

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (8a) Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Bride’s story

It was 2012 when I first heard of Dan from an officemate who was also a church mate. He told me that there was someone else in our company who also attended our church (Dan and I both attend Victory Christian Fellowship – Cebu). But I first saw him at the office when there was a company meeting and the next time I saw him was at Victory Mandaue. Our resident drummer was taking a rest and he took over (but he was still playing at Victory Escario at the same time!). And that’s when I got to notice him. Annnndddd…developed a crush on him! But no one actually knew except for two friends outside church. And then the Victory Parkers was formed. This was a group we sort of spontaneously made— people from Victory church working at I.T Park. We had lunches together every working day. Eventually my crush on him died down and he became a good friend. Because our company doesn’t honor Philippine holidays, sometimes Dan and I had lunch together by ourselves. Never did I know that it would be the start of something great.

Groom’s story

I first saw Wela in December 2011 at our church, which was located in Escario at that time. It was at a singles Christmas party. Around January 2012, I transferred to the company where she was working. A few months after, the church was forming a new ministry then— the Communications Ministry— where videos and multimedia were involved. I was into the making and editing of the videos. And we needed someone who would write spiels etc. I tapped into Wela and asked her if she would like to join. She joined and I got to know her more (aside from the Parkers’ lunches). I saw in her the qualities of a woman that I like a lot. The more I got to know her and spent time with her, my feelings for her grew. I finally decided to step in faith with how I felt for her, after praying and talking with the pastors. I laid down my intention and plans to court her on May 2013. And to make the story short, I got my sweet yes from her after four months. Was I absolutely happy! And I just knew that she would be the one I’d spend the rest of my life with so I proposed to her on April 2014 in Korea.

“It seemed that we were always in the same circles— working at the same company, hanging out with the same lunch group, same ministry (Communications Ministry), paired as the Creative duo in the LifeHub Events team. Little did we know that it would lead us to something so wonderful!”
