Christina + Andy: Romance with Roots

No Comments

I know less than a handful of people who met their spouses before high school. It’s certainly a rare and beautiful thing to grow and change with the person you eventually marry!

Such was the fate of Christina and Andy. Rivals in excellence by eighth grade, they each received the “Student of the Year” award, but Christina had Andy beat with her additional “Perfect Attendance” award. When Andy’s mother asked if he knew Christina, he answered affirmatively, with a tinge of jealousy.

The two were friendly in high school and became even closer friends when they attended college together at the University of Maryland. As if that wasn’t enough togetherness, they also worked the same college job!

Nearly 11 years after their initial acquaintance, Andy began to pursue Christina as more than a friend, but unfortunately she didn’t seem to notice his “subtle advances.” He kept at it for roughly three years before she got the picture!

After that, there was no looking back. Andy suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2012, which made him take stock of his life and what was most important. Read: Christina. It was time for the next step in their relationship!

“I popped the question after Christina and I had talked about her helping me buy a ring, but in secret, I had only been asking her to help [me figure out] exactly what she wanted. With her mom, I got her a ring and proposed out of the blue while we [were on vacation in] Wintergreen, Virginia.”

Because they wanted to embrace both Christina’s Cambodian roots and Andy’s Jewish roots — and their mutual love of Hawaii — they opted to divide their wedding into three separate celebrations!

Be sure to check back in a couple weeks for the full scoop on all of their ceremonies and festivities, complete with gorgeous photos!

Proposal Story: Katy & Anthony

Love is in the air with Valentine’s Day just a couple of short weeks away and we have a new series of love stories to debut!  Proposal stories, that is.  How sweet, right?  Everyone loves a good proposal story.  We’re looking forward to celebrating our couples’ new engagements!

proposal story: katy & anthony

Meet Anthony and Katy.  This adorable couple was engaged last June in New York!  Katy shared that it was a beautiful summer afternoon in the city when Anthony popped the question on their rooftop.  To make it all the much better, their whole family was ready and waiting to celebrate in the excitement!

When asked how soon they started planning their big day, Katy responded, “The next day!”  The couple sat down to create their guest list, which gave them better insight as to how big of a venue they would need.  They researched online, then visited a few spaces, and secured their venue the very next week!  Since they will be wed in Connecticut, they chose to celebrate their big day in September because the weather is simply perfect that time of year!

Katy and Anthony selected our Flirt Photograph Save-the-Date to announce their wedding date — we hope you (and your guests) loved them, K&A!
