LOVE STORY Bryan Vo had what every man could want: a newly-renovated home, great friends, a life of travel and cuisine, and the best job he could hope for. He was in pursuit of the only aspect missing in his life. Love. The kind of love that would make him want to settle down and start a family. Her name was Cathleen Nguyen.
Cathleen was a self-proclaimed bookworm and an international Vietnamese pop star who spent her weekends traveling for her performances and her weekdays at school. Love was the last thing on her mind but it has been said that the best relationships are the ones that happen unexpectedly.
Cathleen and Bryan had had multiple missed opportunities to officially meet one another over the course of three years. Although he recalled every sighting of her throughout those years, she was completely unaware of his existence at all. Bryan’s unwavering determination to introduce himself once and for all led to their brief meeting at her concert in fall of 2015. However, it was not until afterwards at a phở restaurant that she took notice of him. It was his eccentricity that caught her off guard and for the next two months, an interchange of text messages led to their first date.
People often say that when you know, you know and Bryan knew. One year later, Cathleen and Bryan traveled abroad to the “City of Light” and love: Paris. Surrounded by red roses and candle lights, Bryan got down on one knee and proposed under the night’s sky on New Year’s Eve at Four Seasons Hotel George V. The freezing cold night was warmed by their embrace of a more promising future together.
