Yam Concepcion gave her fans a glimpse of what happened during her much-talked-about civil wedding with her non-showbiz boyfriend Miguel CuUnjieng.
The seven-minute video uploaded on Yam’s YouTube channel featured the wedding vow between the couple.
Yam began by talking about her long-distance relationship with Miguel which she described as both “unique” and “special.”
“Our love is as much as a choice as it is a feeling. Staying in love takes a commitment. Our love story is unique and special in many ways. Ours was a long-distance relationship from the very beginning tested by time and life’s uncertainties,” Yam shared.
Yam also noted that both she and Miguel made constant efforts to make their relationship work.
“We’ve faced a lot of twists and turns. But I’ve always believed that it wasn’t only fate that brought us together. It was our constant effort of making time for each other whether it be video calls, leaving voice messages, and extra-long text messages mostly from you. I said novel. Novella levels,” she said.
Apparently, the venue where Yam and Miguel held their wedding was the same place where the two of them had their first date in the City of New York.
“We chose to be strong for each other and here we are, stronger than we were, still choosing each other. Who would have thought we’d be here again on the same pier where we had our first date in New York, if you remember,” Yam stated.
Keeping a promise on being with Miguel, Yam said: “From this day forward, it won’t be just you alone or me alone, but us.”
Meanwhile, Miguel noted how the two of them have grown despite taking a “non-traditional path.”
“We’ve grown so much and built so much trust and faith in one another through our non-traditional path. But it’s these last few months together that have been the most magical. You and Tiny gave me so much life. I used to live often in just memories. But you’ve made me truly present. And with you, I celebrate the now,” he said.
Miguel praised Yam’s courage and strength and said he hopes their future children would inherit her “fearlessness.”
“I love you for the incredible courage and strength that you show. And I vow to fuel and support you. I can only hope that our future children inherit your fearlessness. I promise to revisit and reshape these vows to you as I’ve known for a very long time that you are the one for me,” he said.
Towards the end of their wedding vows for each other, Miguel brought an envelope that he gave to Yam in 2015.
