If you are not working in a wedding industry, many couples might seem to share similar love stories. Either they have a long distance relationship, an office romance, a high school love story, or some other typical relationship stories. Couples often think that their story is not very special as it falls under one of these categories. But for me, every time I get to know a couple, I become aware that their personalities always play roles in creating their unique dynamic and relationship stories. This makes every love story so authentically beautiful in their own way.
In the case of Vicky and Cyndi, their story can fall under the category of “Backstreet Office Couples”. But after befriending these guys and digging deeper, I see how special and unordinary they are. Vicky and Cyndi worked in the same office, the same team even, and yet almost nobody knew that they were a thing for a long 5 years! They always looked for ways to came and left the office together without anyone noticing, stealing opportunities to have lunch together, and many others. Doing it for 5 years, I bet it was not easy at all. And in that, I see how their love-driven persistence and perseverance prevail.
Their wedding was filled with many heart-warming moments. It was a day that they could freely expressed their love in front of their family and friends, and it was a long time coming. Throughout the years, Vicky has always been so faithfully patient in loving Cyndi, from the time he pursued her, to the time that he convinced her that everything will work out fine regardless their circumstances.
Having been the recipient of such overflowing love, Cyndi couldn’t hold back her tears as she read his letter. “As long as you are trying, I am staying.” This short phrase said it all. She knew exactly how much love she has received, and on that day her heart just bursted out of gratitude.
All day long, I could clearly see the joy in their eyes as they are finally married to each other. Everything they had been through has paid off. It was so apparent in the way they looked at each other, held each other’s hands, declared their vows, and many others. They just couldn’t help but smile all day long. It was a very beautiful thing to witness, and I was so glad that I got to be the one to witness and capture their special day.
Vicky and Cyndi, you both are such beautiful couple. I hope that this film can do a little justice in summarizing the beginning of your life journey together.
