How We Met
By the Bride, Vivian

It all started in 2019, on a Saturday morning at the gym. Henry walked up to me with a warm smile and confidence that really struck me. We exchanged phone numbers immediately and he called me in the afternoon, asking me out on a date later that evening.

I was hesitant initially because I thought it was too sudden, as we had only just met. After much thought, I decided to go on a date with him and it turned out to be one of my best decisions.

For both of us, it was love at second sight and he asked me to be his girlfriend two days after our first date. Henry knew what he wanted and didn’t hesitate to go for it. A month later we went on a vacation to the Maldives with the intention of getting to know each other better.

Afterwards, we spent most of the lockdown in 2020 together. Fast forward to 2021, Henry asked me to be his wife in a romantic engagement ceremony that had me in tears. I said Yes! I’m super excited I will be doing life with him together forever!
