There are so many stories behind the submissions we receive everyday, but I must admit, what you are about to read today has one of the most interesting backstories ever. Jamm starts their story with a broken heart. She starts her own blog to write about her ordeal and by some serendipitous moment, Jason finds her in the vast internet world. He then flies thousands of miles to meet her and prove his noble intentions. He even works at their family restaurant as a waiter (Awwwwww!). Yes, it sounds like a plot taken directly out of a movie right?
With a tale as awesome as that, we think it was totally apt that they decided to do a couple’s shoot in the happiest place on earth! Retro and romantic, these photos will warm your heart just like a cup of hot chocolate. Have a great week ahead!
From the bride:
My story is one of losing love to being found by a man from a different country!
I opened my blog (The Heartbreak Kid) because I had my heart broken so badly and I chose to be better and not bitter so I took my time and wrote about my whole ordeal. I met Jason through the internet and he became one of my readers.
From chatting on different timezones, to him asking me out and my refusal saying that I was not going to entertain any advances until I met him, to which he gladly took as a challenge that he asked my mother to date me after I had just acquired a Gerry’s Grill Franchise for our family to open back in my hometown (Butuan City). But as fate would have it, he would fly back to LA and decide to follow me on a trip to Melbourne a day after we parted ways in Manila!
He has been living in the Philippines since February but was here six times before that. He braved Typhoon Yolanda before he finally asked me to marry him on my grandmother’s couch, to being a waiter in the restaurant I opened.
He is more than just a dream come true. He is the testament that there is absolutely no excuse in the world to be apart from the person you were destined to be with. And that there is nothing impossible anymore. When LOVE comes, it is due, and all it has in store is happiness, peace, and dreams coming true!
