From the bride... "Kushal and I met as coworkers at Ancestry.com in San Francisco. We sat across from each other and a group of us from work became close friends and started going to happy hours and playing pool together after work. After a few weeks, Kushal and I went to dinner the two of us and the rest is history."
From the bride... "Matt and I met our freshman year of high school in Atherton, California. During our freshman English class, we became quick friends, mostly because I would help Matt write his papers. As we grew up a little bit, we become closer and closer friends and eventually started dating our sophomore year. Like many high school relationships....it ended before we graduated. Matt went off to college in New York City at Columbia University and I stayed local to the Bay Area and went to Stanford. Throughout our college years, we kept in touch on and off, at one point dating again for a few months, at other points drifting away from one another for a year or more at a time. After college, I moved to New York City at the encouragement of my best friend from college and started my career. As I had suspected he would, Matt chose to stay in New York City after school and start his career there as well. After about a year of creating our own lives in the big city on our own, we met up one night in early 2015 and have barely spent time apart since! We got engaged in our apartment in New York City on October 5th, 2018 and can't wait for our big day to finalize what has been in the making for 14 years!"
From the bride... "We met June 2015 in San Francisco at a mutual friend's birthday party. Joe is one to "know everyone", but he didn't know me. He had another mutual friend introduce us - we ended up finding several things in common and hitting it off. After coordinating our busy schedules, we finally met up for drinks a few weeks later, then went on our first dinner date a few days later, and eventually we were seeing each other multiple times a week. In November, Joe's job offered him a promotion he couldn't refuse to work in their Southern California office. While I was not excited about being n a long distance relationship, we both saw a future together and decided Joe should make the move. After a year and a half of making trips back and forth, Joe finally moved home! Five months later, he asked my dad to get lunch. We were planning on moving in together in early 2018, so I thought the lunch was to respectively ask my dad's permission to live together before marriage. Little did I know, it was to ask for his blessing to propose! On December 21st, 2017, Joe planned a trip to one of our favorite places, Pebble Beach. When we are there, we love to watch the sunset on the 17 mile drive and take a selfie by the beach. On this day, we did just that, but instead of taking a selfie, he got down on one knee with a ring. I was out of my mind surprised! Our immediate family was waiting for us around the corner, where we celebrated and had dinner on the water. We are both from the Bay Area and wanted a local wedding. We decided on Stanford Memorial Church because both of our grandfather's attended Stanford, and my parent's got married there too! It was special to both of us. Then, the wedding planning began... :)"
From the groom... "We first met at a whiskey bar in the Marina neighborhood of San Francisco. My friend Nick invited me to a company happy hour and his girlfriend Nina invited Christine from work. After a couple of drinks and bonding over the fact that we were both from Seattle and had the same favorite scotch, we hit it off and spent the remainder of the event getting to know one another. According to her, Christine was hooked by my energy within minutes. We all set plans for oysters later that week and I proceeded to head downtown to meet up with some friends, later receiving a text from Nick, who had never asked to go out late night with me but wanted to see what I was doing this particular evening. Nick and the girls all came downtown to meet up and we all proceeded to have a great night. Christine and I connected later that week for dinner, forgoing the double date and going on our own. After that dinner, and Christine breaking it off with her existing boyfriend of 5 years, we've been pretty much inseparable, spending every possible minute together."
