“Last year” is the word often spoken during our conversation and also during their wedding day. Last year was indeed a special year for both Nick and Betty. It was the year where their faith was tested beyond imagination and I believe that it is the most important year of their relationship because thats when they truly understand what it means when you say “in sickness and in health”

Everyone dreams of getting paid while doing what they love doing. But it is such a blessing when you get to make a living doing work for something that you believe in. We believe in the covenant of marriage and the God that created the concept and its nice to be able to share this with the world.

This time we get to tell the story of how two people really showed the meaning of total faith in God and not questioning His actions. It is a true story about struggles, commitment and love. Its pretty fair to say that I got very emotionally connected in this project that I imagined my selves in Nick’s position, needless to say I dont think my imagination will ever come close to the true experience but I was really inspired with his story and betty’s as well.

One thing that I remembered while we were planning the production of this pre wedding is they request that the film will not focus on their love story, but to their testimony that will glorify the God that has brought them to where they are today, and that really touched me. Over the course of the production of the pre wedding film, we bonded, we connected and we became more than client/vendor, we became friends. I got to see who they are as a couple and really seeing the heart of the people who have experienced God in a different level. Well done guys, you have passed the test :)

It was such an emotional time during Nick’s speech at his wedding last Saturday where he addressed his appreciation to his family, betty’s family and also to his other friends and family who supported him during his tough time, and he did this while holding a stack of “thinking of you” cards that he received whilst in the hospital. I can feel how grateful he is to everyone and I could only smile very proudly and happily watching him standing on the stage all recovered and beaming with health and happiness.

My dear friends Nick and Betty. Thank you for trusting us with your story. This is probably the most content-driven film that we have ever produced and we are glad that we let it be that way. Thank you for the inspiration and the friendship. I hope that this film will be a blessings to many as it has been to us.

PS: Thank you to Pudi, Dom and Vicky for helping on the shoot and putting in the translation of subtitle in the edit. It was quite stressful for me to edit this piece without understanding a single word, but at least I have now learned a few words of cantonese as the result :)

Much love,
