How did you meet and fall in love?
Two of my girlfriends set up a group dinner and left the seat in front of me open. I knew about the setup but he didn’t. We hit it off, and later on he told me he knew he wanted to marry me that night.
Tell us how the proposal happened.
We road tripped with our dog from Texas to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park for a week of hiking and camping. On our last day, there we were, checking out an overlook with an incredible view and I was busy taking photos per usual. I turned when I heard my name and Dzung was kneeling with the ring and asked me to marry him.
Tell us about something that was creative or unique to your wedding.
We had a lavender toss at the end of our ceremony and it smelled amazing. We also had our favorite milk tea place cater (the line was longer than the open bar!).
