From the bride... "Din Tai Fung will always have a special place in our hearts as it was over dumplings that we first met. I had come out from Texas to interview at USC for my orthodontics residency and my cousin Matt was hosting the weekend. Matt took me to all the best restaurants in LA and finished with Sunday brunch at Din Tai Fung. It was a large group so we didn't interact much, but Nick secretly believes I decided to come after meeting him that day. A year later, I eventually moved to LA to attend USC Orthodontics. I moved in with Matt and his wife Lee along with Lee's sister, Kim in a loft in DTLA. Nick lived in the complex next door, an approximate 3 min walk away. They say the best relationships begin as friends and we became close friends as two to three times a week, the girls and I (Lee and Kim) would cook and Nick would come over with the wine and we would all have "family dinner". Nick eventually asked for Matt's approval and took me out on my first date. At the time Nick had moved to Manhattan Beach that summer and I moved out with my friends to Playa del Rey, so many of our first dates ended with walks on the boardwalk after grabbing gelato or spending time at the pier...the rest is history from there!"
From the bride... "We were introduced 7 years ago when Lewis was visiting LA. After two weeks, Lewis had to fly back to London where he lived. We had the best two weeks and didn't want it to end. We decided that we would continue to date, regardless of the long-distance (LA & London). Two months later, I flew to London to visit. That's when we knew that we loved each other and wanted to make this relationship work. After four years of dating long-distance (emails, calls, Skype dates, and visits), Lewis moved to LA. Then a year later, Lewis proposed while we were on vacation in England in the countryside in a small town called, Ashridge. We'd like to bring our children one day to that field in the future."
"On a beautiful spring day in 2012, they were introduced by their matchmaker friends Rosy and Song, now known as Mr. and Mrs. Pang. The four of them had a delicious dinner together at Korean Garden in Boston. Winnie thought Nathan could be the perfect gym/party buddy. Nathan was amazed (shocked) by my humor and crazy jokes. They soon became friends. Although Cupid did not hit them first, romance came through 2 years later. A few weeks before April Fool's day in 2014, Winnie randomly thought of playing a prank on matchmaker number one Rosy by telling her that she was secretly dating Nathan, who was working in Beijing at the time. Rosy totally fell for it and told Winnie that Nathan had the hugest crush on her. Despite time zones and thousands of miles between them, Winnie felt his heart. Their love for each other brought Nathan back to Boston. Winnie believes it was destiny and meant to be. Nathan calls her his angel of luck, with a heart full of love."
From the bride... "We met online and had corresponded in an easy way, agreeing on rollerblading and pickles as 2 things we both had in common. The first enchanted evening was at Buffalo Bill’s in Whistler, where we had both ended up with some friends. Squinting across the room, I spotted the guy I had met on Tinder. Tim had already picked me out and came towards me. We hugged… then we danced…and there wasn’t much talking…just a LOT of chemistry and a sense by me that he was easy to be around. The second enchanted evening, was our first real date, which happened when I texted to ask “What are you cooking me for dinner?” He went into master chef mode, producing a spectacular meal of steak, scallops and every vegetable known for human consumption. I turned up all sweaty on rollerblades with a bottle of wine. Then word got out to our families when a little bit of Shakespearean drama began. The families knew each other – very well in fact. my mom and his sister Leah had been part of the same business mastermind group for years. No one thought to introduce us because no one thought it was a good idea! Mostly because time was s a playboy, he would break my heart, etc.. Like some famous Shakespearean couples, that kind of advice just fans the flames…anyone who knows me would not be surprised that the advice was wasted. Besides we were both smitten.. badly…and had other plans... There’s this thing called love…" "In Tim’s words: I knew I was screwed ? or ruined? when I first saw her, and I knew 100% I was in love with her about a month after the dinner at my house. On November 28th, 62 days after that dinner at my house, I told her in the backyard at the Nordic House in Whistler that I wanted to spend my life with her. For Kiara: I couldn’t really put a date on it, it just was. We were in Whistler and we were falling asleep and Tim seemed even more quiet than usual and I asked him what was going on (we’d been together for not very long) and he said, “I love you” – I hadn’t really thought about it before but when he said it, I knew that was true for me also. Those magic words … what makes them stick for some and not for others? Kiara describes what for her was becoming their way of loving: He tells me frequently, “I promise I will always continue to be a better person for myself, for us and our family”. When he first said that to me, it was after a tough couple of weeks together, he proceeded to really show me that he meant it. I gave some pretty intense feedback, I told him I wasn’t sure about us, that I didn’t want to move in together and that he couldn’t come to meet my Mount Forest family (all in the same night). He was calm, understanding, steady and heartfelt. He told me he heard me, he understood where I was coming from and asked me if we could work on some of the issues together. I agreed, thinking I would “give it a month or two” and then see how it went. I went away for work for just over a week and upon my return, I came home to everything that we spoke about. I knew at that moment that he hadn’t made any of the changes for me, that is was authentic and truly who he wanted to be and how he wanted to show up. From that day forward I knew he was it. Because I trusted that he would never stop growing and he would live up to his commitments, even if they were hard. Those are the times that build a foundation for the long term. Along with solid commitment backed by actions, Tim is also a romantic, which I think has been a magic ingredient in their relationship. Here’s the thought and planning that went the third enchanted evening when he asked the “Big Question”" From the groom... "I purposed in Whistler on Friday, December 23rd. I told Kiara I wanted some alone time/date before all the family time that was about to ensue at the new house. I had a bag packed and at 4 pm we went out for a very snowy walk. We walked down to a semi-private dock on Alta Lake, 2 ½’ of snow on the ground, it was truly a beautiful time. We got to the dock, we sat down in our full snow gear, feet planted on the frozen lake. I pulled out of the backpack, a portable speaker and hot gin grog, where we happily listened to Michael Buble Christmas, talked and laughed excitedly about all the fun plans we had coming. I kept asking Kiara if she was cold “I knew she wasn’t” she kept saying “no’ I’m fine”. She was enjoying herself and she thought I was asking in case she wanted to go back home. Finally, she said, “yeah, I’m getting cold now”. I smartly replied “lets get shelter in the trees.. it will be warmer.” She went along with the foolish notion that it would be warmer “in the trees” as she was letting me do my thing. Once in the trees, only meters from the lakeshore I pulled out, behind a very snowy overturned canoe, a portable fit pit, ready to be lit. I lit the fire, we sat on the canoe and I pulled out a charcuterie plate, with salami, cheese and crackers and red wine to pair, we sat listening to Bing Crosby Christmas and enjoyed the very beautiful, now dark, lake and mountain. Some walked by us on the path and said “that’s about the most Christmas you can get, Merry Christmas ” We did this for another 45 minutes, then I asked if she wanted an early present. She untraditionally accepted the offer with some coaxing on my part. Once she took off the wrapping, I quickly snatched her present, It was a poem on 16 oversize cards. I got her to read them aloud as I held them in my hand. With a slow pace, dropped the read card to the snowy ground. After the poem, we embraced, I said I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I dropped down to one knee and asked “will you marry me”?"
