This is one of those weddings that I can’t really say no to. The groom, Niko, used to be my co-worker at an aerospace company some 8 years ago. Probably one of the successful folks I look up to in my professional career. When he reached out to me about his wedding, I didn’t hesitate. I just knew that we had to be their wedding videographer. It was the best I can do in return for the many professionals advise I received from him.
What made it better is knowing he will marry someone with a big heart (pun intended), Quynh, a cardiologist. Everyone at the wedding felt like they were a match made perfectly. Two of the most compassionate, loving individuals tying the knot! I am so happy for my friend and what I consider my mentor, now finally found a home.
More about Quynh and Niko…
How did you guys meet?
Life has a funny way of bringing people together when they least expect it. Quynh and Niko didn’t know each other when they moved to Los Angeles to pursue the next stage of their careers. Quynh was logging long hours as an Internal Medicine resident and Niko was busy managing multiple back-to-back rocket launches. Through mutual friends, Niko heard about Quynh – a cute doctor with charming quirks who aspires to fix people’s hearts and his interest was piqued. Quynh couldn’t pass up the chance to meet a well-traveled, sophisticated, yet down-to-earth rocket scientist and agreed to a date! Over dinner at a cozy patisserie in Los Angeles, two things became abundantly clear to Niko and Quynh: they both felt like they had known each other forever and neither one of them wanted the date to end.
Favorite things to do together?
Our favorite activities together include finding creative ways to merge Niko’s European cooking with Quynh’s Vietnamese cuisine, wine tasting, exploring San Diego both on and near the water!
What do you guys do for a living?
Quynh is a cardiologist and Niko is a rocket scientist. Quynh keeps Niko’s heart going and Niko lifts Quynh up to new heights! 😉 (Note to Sig: get the cardiology and rocket science joke reference?)
Niko and Quynh, congratulations and we are forever grateful that you made us part of your big day!
