A friendship turned into love.
couple intro

Bridget and John met in 2014. She was fresh out of another relationship and was in the process of healing

Initially, she considered John as a friend who was helping her get through the break-up but John had his eye on her. Their friendship grew over the next few months, as they would constantly chat and also meet at church events.

John made his move on Valentine’s Day that year, when he asked her what she would like them to do for the day. She didn’t think much of his question and it was only until he gave her a slab of chocolate and kissed her, that she stared considered a relationship with him.

Just like any other couple, Bridget and John have gone through their own share of challenges but they have been each other’s support system and that’s what has seen them through.

John had a banner inscribed with “Bridget, will you marry me?” for his surprise proposal this year and Bridget didn’t hesitate to say “Yes” and today, they are getting married, in front of friends and family.
