Tell us a little about you and your beloved:
It all started at Sts. Peter and Paul School in San Francisco, where we met in fifth grade. Placed in a group together, we became friends. However, we lost touch in high school but reunited in college. We have been together ever since.

What was the most amazing part of your day?
In Chinese culture, the groom and his groomsmen would arrive at the bride’s house to pick up the bride and the bridesmaids before the ceremony. To enter the house, the groom and groomsmen must complete a variety of task determined by the bridesmaids. One of my favorite tasks was when they had to sing and dance to one of my childhood’s favorite songs.

What else would you like to share about your big day?
Walking down the aisle felt like a dream, I was surrounded by flowers, and I could not see any other faces but my husband’s. My day began and ended with the biggest smile on my face.
