Different with previous love story on the blog, at this moment the bride will tell us about their love story directly, Ella & Willy from Taipei
Our story began when two of us came to Surabaya, I came from Bali and Willy came from Tangerang. We firstly met in the Catholic Community in our campus. We got closer when we joined the Catholic Retreat on 2008, and was in relationship start from December 2018. Argue, misunderstanding, little fight spiced up our relationship but it was getting rare by the time. We almost broke up several times during our 8.5 years relationship even in the first two months. But we never let anger continue on the next day, we always let it end in the same day we fight. And thankfully God kept us united.
December 30th, 2015 on our 7th anniversary, He proposed me in Nami Island when we travelled to South Korea that time. We were officially engaged on February 9, 2016 in Bali and had 1.5 years of wedding preparation until we tied the knot on 1 . 7 . 17 (July 1st, 2017) in Vila Phalosa, Seminyak, Bali. Had a garden wedding with beach as the background of our wedding venue, just like what we dreamt of for our wedding dream.
I am a perfectionist person so I always want everything to be as exact as I want especially for my wedding day. But that time I realized maybe God wanted to testify my faith. July 1st, because the weather was still gloomy and cloudy, I said to God, if You wanted it to be gloomy and cloudy today, let it be, but please don’t let it rain. After the wedding mass finished, miracle happened. It turned to be sunny for whole day until the night ended after heavy rain happened during the wedding mass in the morning. We did not have plan B. We only prayed and surrendered to God, and miracle always happens upon us.
We always believe everything will have its best in its own time. And happy is the person who learns to wait as he prays and never loses his patience, for God's time is the perfect time.
