BRIDGEWATER WEDDING ::: JACK AND KC WEDDING DAY PART VII
Where was I? I totally got interrupted by the winter cold from last week. I know I said in Jack and KC’s last episode that little things matter, but since this is the conclusion of their wedding blog series I figured it’s time for us to skip the details and fast track to talk about what matters the most – the story. Well…of course, since I only got to know Jack back in around 07-08, I wouldn’t have known about his childhood memories and stories of him with KC in great detail without the help of his best man and long-time friend John Wang.

Thankfully, I managed to steal John’s speech note so we all can relive the moments together…
“At the time both were student volunteers for a charity. Right away in his heart he probably knew he had just met someone special, but things progressed slowly. He knew he was moving to Melbourne soon. He also knew that KC was an exchange student and would eventually return to Malaysia. Therefore he was reluctant to make a move. He also wasn’t a fan of long-distance relationships. But despite claiming to be “just a friend”, there were some telltale signs. I remember one time when KC was fighting a cold, Jack personally made and delivered ginger tea to her dorm, but in order to not make it look so bloody obvious, he gave some tea to some other friends as well. A good attempt at diversion, but unfortunately for Jack, he managed to fool no one. We all could see how much he liked this girl.”
“After Jack moved to Melbourne he and KC actually lost touch. He would always call me and lament about how difficult it was to find “The One”. It didn’t help that his selection criteria for a girlfriend was so tough, it might have been easier to win lotto than to find someone suitable. Little did he know, he had already met his lotto ticket. All he needed to do was muster up the courage to claim it. Luckily, thanks to good ol’ Facebook, he and KC got back in touch. Things then started to heat up, and next thing you know, I am standing here talking to you about Jack’s fetish for romantic movies. The lesson to take away here is this: Never stop using Facebook. Unless you’re married.
Marriage is not about finding a person you can live with, it’s about finding the person you can’t live without. My friend Jack has found that person. Now if you’ll all join me in raising a glass, here’s to living happily ever after for Jack and KC!”
Brilliant isn’t it? The more I shoot weddings the more I find myself enjoying the good stories behind the Bride and Groom. They really add life and soul to the wedding. And John really did a fantastic job in unfolding these interesting stories and putting a big smile on everyone’s face. Remember, good stories don’t make a couple, it is the life of a wonderful couple that gets translated into good stories. And certainly, we will be hearing more beautiful stories from this newly married couple, Jack and KC.
