Julius and Jelyn were my colleagues before at Imagine Nation Photography. Julius is a videographer while Jelyn is a video editor.
These two met before a bible study meeting; Jelyn was about to go inside the building when a stray dog suddenly appeared and as Julius was also there hanging around, Jelyn held on to his hand out of fear of the dog. Julius, startled, said, “Who the heck are you?”
As both are in the videography team, they worked closely together for many weddings, for many hours, and I guess this was how things developed. Their relationship wasn’t perfect, there were many trials, but there was understanding and we, as their friends, could see they both wanted, and I’m sure to this very day, to work out their differences. And this is how their relationship grew abundantly.
There are many things we can learn from their relationship. One of which, as Jelyn specifically pointed out, is the virtue of purity, of waiting for marriage, of self-control. They chose to stay pure until marriage for this relationship, and having a man who chooses this, according to Jelyn, is kinda sexy.
My favorite part of their wedding was when they uttered their funny and touching personal vows to each other. It was nice to see Jelyn wrote hers on her journal, a good way to remind her perhaps of their promises.
Their wedding supplier friends, videographers, photographers, HMUAs, former bosses, all helped out in making their event possible. With their close relatives and friends gathered together, Julius and Jelyn’s wedding was heartwarming, honest, full of stories, laughter and tears. Our day ended smiling, and we were all happy for these two.
