Denver Samson and Roselle Torres
by Danielle Sebastian | November 2012

Denver and Roselle‘s romance started in Singapore. Denver knew deep in his heart that what they had was more than a short fling. So when the time came that Roselle had to go back to the Philippines, he followed and professed his undying love to her and her family. Last February 12, 2012, they said their “I do‘s” at Fernbrook Gardens, south of Metro Manila.

Love Story
Way back in 2005, Roselle had to go to Singapore for a training she needed for her undergraduate studies. She constantly felt lonely being in a country far away from home. It was when she met another student named Angel when things started to turn around for her. True to her name, Angel was the angel who made her time in Singapore a happier one. It was through her that doors opened for Roselle and Denver to become friends and then lovers.

Denver, on the other hand, was starting a new life in Singapore. He was all set to pursue a career in Mechanical Engineering, make new friends and become more open to what life has to offer. He didn‘t realize that it would take only a month for his life to change forever.

Denver spotted Roselle‘s beauty in a Spanish restaurant in Esplanade Marina. He took the chance to chat with Angel in order to get Roselle‘s mobile number. He got it but Roselle was oblivious to strange men but Angel was persistent in playing matchmaker. One day, she set them up and lo and behold, they had a nice time and decided to see more of each other.

When Roselle‘s training ended after 6 months, she had to go back to the Philippines. Denver was heartbroken and felt uncertain for their future as a couple. A month later, he followed her and met her mother. He professed his love and commitment to Roselle and Roselle did the same.

On June 11, 2011, Denver proposed and she said yes. After six years of being together, they were finally getting married.

Wedding Planning from Singapore
Working in Singapore, wedding planning for a Manila wedding was a challenge. A year before their wedding, they started looking for suppliers and decided on wedding themes. Roselle admits that it was difficult but enjoyable to think of all the wedding details. Her relatives, mom and aunt, were truly a blessing to her and Denver when it came to assisting them in wedding preparation.

The internet was also a truly useful tool in their wedding planning. They looked for suppliers online and contacted them via email, Facebook or chat. Lucky for them, the suppliers they chose were accommodating and friendly enough to take the time and discuss their expectations and specific details for the wedding.

They chose a Fairy Tale theme because Roselle always wanted her wedding to be a magical and enchanting. It was a dream come true when they were able to book a reception venue on the day of Denver‘s birth, February 12, 2012. The number 12 also had a special biblical meaning to the couple.
