Dave and Leona met under the most auspicious circumstances; at their friend’s destination wedding in the Philippines which is Leona’s home country. Fortunately for them, their friends arranged a host of activities for the wedding entourage, and they were able to hang out and get to know each other. After the wedding, Dave returned to the States, but could not take his mind off of this amazing woman that he’s met. They kept in touch, and visited each other in their home countries throughout their relationship. Last winter, Dave knelt in front of the just lit Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center and asked Leona for her hand in marriage. Although Leona could barely hear a word that Dave said as he was kneeling due to the huge crowd that was there, she was so happy and immediately said yes.
We can’t wait to celebrate with you two in September! Thank you so much George for all your help that day =]!
