Melissa & Yasuo :: 300 Love Letters

Melissa and Yasuo have a classic and almost old-fashioned love story. I have to thank Melissa right off the bat for writing me a beautiful essay about their romance so that I could share it here. Anything in quotation marks is written by Melissa. Here's how it starts: Melissa, a spunky, sophisticated Chinese-American girl lived on one side of the ocean and Yasuo, a young Tokyo business manager lived in Japan. They met through a mutual friend who insisted on a group date in Tokyo. Afterward, Yasuo finally mustered the courage to ask Melissa out to dinner for English lessons. "Being from different worlds didn't stop their chemistry. Yasuo pursued Melissa with daily surprises, and Melissa brought Yasuo out of his comfort zone and on countless adventures."

"But soon, Melissa and Yasuo would be separated by an ocean. Yasuo attempted to proclaim that marriage was certainly in their future, but Melissa set Yasuo on the seemingly impossible task to write 300 handwritten letters before it could happen. Though unspoken, something inside both of them knew that the “international long distance relationship” was something they could conquer together. Somewhere between moving over 5,000 miles from Japan, learning English, getting to know Melissa’s culture and family, and proposing under the Golden Gate Bridge with a Ziplock bag of cherry blossoms in hand, Yasuo completed his 300th letter to Melissa."

"On May 6, their wedding day, they both read their 300th letters to one another as their wedding vows in front of family and friends gathered at Cavallo Point – the Lodge at the Golden Gate in Sausalito, California."

Congratulations to Melissa and Yasuo. May your love be never-ending!
