things happen when you least expect it
I didn’t expect that Dennis will be proposing anymore. We’ve been preparing for the wedding for a few months now and almost everything is finalized already. So why propose pa? But, to my delight, he still did! And I really am so happy he did! He really planned for the whole thing and it was an event to remember. Not only was I with him, but we were with the whole family as well! They are our witnesses.
Maybe, you are now wondering what happened. Well, here goes…
It was a slightly rainy Sunday, we went to Ayala Greenfield Estates to shoot some pics for the wedding. Little did I know that it was going to be a day of surprises!
When we got to the Village Clubhouse, I was suddenly left by Dennis with KatKat, Shobe Liit, Shobe Trissie and Ahya Tristan at the clubhouse. Tumakas sya together with AnAn, Manny and Syoti Jr. Ako naman, unknowingly waited for him, yun pala, he had an advanced birthday surprise in store for me. After a short while, he came back. And he covered my whole face with my sarong!
He lead me to the picnic area, kapit to the max ako sa kanya kasi wala akong makita totally. When he removed the sarong from my face, there’s a cake and lots of food in the table. Kaya pala he was texting me at 5am, nag prepare pa sya. They were singing happy birthday. Teary eyed na ako syempre. So, we ate and ate, until we’re so full na!
I thought that was it, I didn’t think na he will propose pa. I think one surprise in a day is enough right? Wrong!
We did what we have to do after resting our bulging tummies. We played at the game room. We shot lots of pictures. We even played at the playground. Us all – really a picture of fun!
Suddenly, the two of us were left naman by the whole group. Dennis told me Ahya will just get something from the admin at the other clubhouse. Ako naman, ok lang, since I’m with him. We talked and talked, we played with the continuous shot feature of the camera, we watched the sunset. We just stayed at the poolside, lounging at one of the sunbathing chair until my stomach started grumbling na naman. Madilim na that time, so I was wondering what happened to them na. But, on the other hand, they are keeping in touch with Denz, they keep on calling him. For sure, updating him.
A little while after, Ahya called and said na pabalik na sila. While waiting for them, Denz told me he has another surprise for me and that I have to wait until my birthday (4 days pa!) till he tells me what that is. Kinukulit ko lang sya to tell me when Ahya arrived. Akala ko uuwi na kami, when the car opened, nobody was there, only Ahya. That’s the time Denz asked me to cover my eyes again.
In a few minutes, the car stopped somewhere. I got down the car, todo kapit na naman ako kay Denz, takot kasi ako madapa or something. Tahimik sobra, I’m getting giddy and nervous na. But, I still didn’t think a proposal is going to happen.
He lead me to the swing area, when I opened my eyes, there were heart balloons, there were 2 wine glasses, an Asti Martini and candles were lit all over. Everyone was there, holding cameras, videocams. We sat down the swing, and that’s where it actually happened!
Denz told me how we’ve been through a lot and that he wanted to make it official, he suddenly pulled a rose out, it turned out to be the ring holder, he went down on his knee, and asked me “OFFICIALLY” to marry him! And he was wearing this shirt which said “will TIU marry me? (a smiley face with brace)” I didn’t let him finish anymore, I said YES of course, hindi ko na rin nakita ano design nung ring. I was crying and hugging him na eh. Everyone’s in front of us taking pictures. I am suddenly laughing and crying at the same time.
We drank the Asti, toasted everyone, super happy kasi everybody close to me were there with us. I thanked Denz and I told him that having everyone there made it more special.
So there, that’s our Proposal Story. Now, I have something to share with our future kids! 🙂
