Amanda was dealing with cancer when she met Kai, that didn’t stop Kai to conquer her heart.
Amanda shared with us her amazing love story with now her Husband Kai. We were privilege to capture their wedding day.
Here is their story, narrated by Amanda.
“We met two years ago on an online dating site where we initially just chatted about our common interests like books and movies. I told him up front that I had just been through two surgeries and a year of treatments for melanoma cancer. I was struggling to get back into a normal routine and deciding if I wanted to date since having cancer means there is a high chance that it will come back. We met for the first time after a month of almost daily messaging. We went to see Planet of The Apes in theaters (we’re both pretty geeky)! I made it pretty clear in the beginning that I just wanted to be friends and he honored that, but never stopped pursuing me. He was a true gentleman in every way. You don’t see that very often these days.”
“He was a steady rock in my world of uncertainty. He was always there for me and went out of his way to do whatever he could for me. He was there when I had doctor appointments, when I had a bad day and needed a hug, when I needed someone to vent to. In the midst of everything that comes with cancer, he always made me feel like I was a normal human being even though I felt far from normal. “
“We finally started dating a couple months after we met. He won me over with his quiet persistence and selfless, sweet personality! It’s been a wonderful two years growing together. We’ve held each other up during difficult times and celebrated life’s small victories together.”
“This last Christmas, while just the two of us were opening gifts, I opened my last present and he got down on one knee. Of course I said yes! My best friend gave me the courage to live my life to the fullest and quickly became the love of my life. Nine months later we got married and we’re both so very happy!” Amanda Graves
