Fans couldn’t wait for Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly’s wedding
From the very beginning, fans were eager for Jim and Pam to get together on The Office. Initially, Pam was engaged to Roy Anderson (David Denman) with an unknown wedding date. But in the pilot episode, it was clear Pam had feelings for Jim. What was even more clear was the chemistry between them.
The tension between Jim and Pam finally came to a head during the season 2 episode “Casino Night” when they shared their first kiss. But, their relationship wouldn’t become official until season 4 of the The Office. Fans were there through all of the pivotal “Jim and Pam” moments, including in season 6 with the two-part wedding episode, “Niagara.”
Jim and Pam’s wedding was a big deal for John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer, too
During the episode, Jim and Pam actually had two wedding ceremonies — one in the church, with their Dunder Mifflin coworkers, and a more intimate ceremony on the bow of the Maid of the Mist.
In “The Moment That My Life Changes” episode of Office star Brian Baumgartner’s podcast, An Oral History of the Office, editor Clare Scanlon talked about how Krasinski and Fischer cried when they saw the final edit of the episode.
“There’s the last scene of ‘Niagara’ where Jim and Pam are on the bow of the boat and he puts his arm around her and he looks right into the camera and he just like… it’s not even like cocky… it’s just sweet, like ‘I got her,'” Scanlon explained, continuing:
John and Jenna came into my bay to see it. They were like, ‘We need to see the show, we need to sign off on this big one.’ And after that, I like turned around and they’re bawling.
That’s all you want to do, is make people cry. For the poignant moments, all you want is to make people cry.
