Couple of the Year

We see lots of beautiful, swirling couples on this site.  Sometimes, one of these lovely couples stands apart from among the others.  I came across this couple first on Pinterest and Facebook via The Swirl World.  Adrienne London Leach  of TSW put me in touch with Lynne.  I contacted Lynne and we became friends earlier this year.

This beautiful, South African, Blasian couple is easily the Swirling and Marriage 2014 Couple of the Year.  Allen and Lynne Lo are bringing the love for real.  Looking at their wedding (and other) photographs, anyone can see that he can’t keep his hands off her.  And they have a sweet story to boot.

Lynne met Allen as a teen at the mall.  According to Lynne, it was love at first sight between she and Allen.  Lynne is bubbly yet strong and confident in herself and the love Allen would have for her.  They dated for just over a year and then became engaged.  After being engaged for some time, Allen and Lynne decided together that marriage is the next step.

They used all of 2013 to plan their wedding.  It was stressful because Lynne’s mother was sick and hospitalized.  Unfortunately, Allen’s family had no interest in their wedding but that did not matter in the end. Lynne and Allen got married in January 2014.  Lynne says that her wedding was the best day of her life.  She and Allen are so successful as a couple because together they are a team.  Allen is a stand up man whose love for Lynne literally comes through the pictures.  Strong in her faith, Lynne says about Allen:  “I carry my husband in my soul and I pray for him more than I pray for myself.  He is my life and my everything!” Lynne adds lovingly, “Beautiful, Blasian is in our future.  (Yes, they say Blasian in South Africa).  I can’t wait to give my husband a beautiful family.”

Allen on the other hand speaks as lovingly of Lynne as she does of him.  He obviously loves Lynne’s family too.  While looking through some of this fabulous couple’s photos, I saw how loving and tender Allen was toward Lynne’s ill mother.  That is genuine love that comes from a special place.  Sadly, Lynne’s mother passed away and Allen was the rock who was there for his lady.

All I see is a strong, special love that is sure to endure any test of time.  Lynne and Allen seem to be on a permanent honeymoon.   Enjoy these photographs as much as I did.  Thank you Lynne and Allen Lo for sharing your lovely photographs and a little of your lives.
