Who would have known that a chance encounter in faraway Dubai would culminate with a solemn yet elegant wedding tomorrow at the UCCP Church along Gallares St. in Tagbilaran City, Bohol?
They first met in Bradford UCCP Cebu where both are actively involved with church related activities.
The lovebirds recalled those days and admitted that sparks never flew and that they were just friends
Fast forward to April 8, 2009 when the bride first set foot in Dubai, a city in the United Arab Emirates where she was to be based for the next four years
On that very same day, just when she was on her first day in a strange land, alone yet optimistic of what the future had in store for her, she bumped into her future groom in a restaurant in the city
Both were thrilled to have met and talked with each other
One thing led to another and before they knew it, they were already deeply and madly in love
Yes folks, love is everywhere and in our couple’s case, it was in the midst of the romantic sandy dunes and the glittering and modern skyline of Dubai where they realized that they were destined to be lifetime partners
