“Today I have received the most perfect gift from God. A prayer I have always been sincerely trusting Him to bring into my life. Dave, thank you for being my answered prayer,” she began.

“Thank you for not giving up on me. You are the reason why we have stronger days together. God led us to each other for a greater purpose. Let us both live it with faith and love. Yes, I will marry you!”

“I was totally clueless of what this day would bring. And your surprise made me feel more loved and cherished than I did yesterday. You are all awesome!” she continued before thanking everyone who helped Dave plan the beautiful proposal, namely Nice Print Photography, Gideon Hermosa for styling the City Hall grounds, and Mayor Cataquiz of San Pedro, Laguna.

“And to all my loved ones, thank you for all the engagement wishes and warm congratulations,” she ended.
