When Cindy and Shiang first met a few years ago, nothing much happened. The meeting was brief as they just happened to be in the same place at the same time because they knew some mutual people. But the following weekend they ran into each other at a club and Shiang finally took the opportunity to exchange numbers with the cutie that had caught his eye twice now. Over the course of the next several weeks, Shiang and Cindy would chat on the phone for hours getting to know each other. Shiang eventually asked her out on a date. Or what he thought was a date. In Cindy’s mind, Shiang was just a new friend and their dinner-and-a-movie evening was completely platonic. It never even crossed her mind that Shiang might have feelings for her. But he did. And he eventually told her as much and asked her to be his girlfriend. And Cindy shot him down. But the heart wants what it wants, and Shiang chose to listen. He asked again and this time Cindy accepted.
After their engagement session, Shiang and Cindy took me to the restaurant where that first date-but-not-a-date happened. As they recounted the story of how they met and the subsequent hurdles Shiang jumped through to get them to this point, I could tell that Cindy was so glad Shiang was persistent. She found her best friend and soul mate and they both couldn’t be happier. They’re an adorable couple and they’re getting married on St. Patrick’s Day next year! I’m so excited to be a part of it. Thanks for a fun afternoon, Cindy and Shiang!
We started off at Fosselman’s ice cream, a popular local shop near where Cindy and Shiang both grew up.
These two are total Gleeks and they wanted to have fun with that for their session. Can you tell these two have been to a Glee concert, or two?!
And what afternoon would be complete without a Hello Kitty picnic?
