Words from the Bride Tell me about your love story. 

Thomas and I met in early October 2010 at an event on the campus of USC. Although we briefly spoke in person that night, as their were a number of people at the event, he texted me saying "Make it home safely". I was very shocked at the text, but said "Thanks you do the same". After that night, we did not really stay in contact and did not think to much of each other. Fast forward to a couple of weeks later, when Thomas and I ran into each other at a Halloween Party in Ontario,CA. We were both fairly far away from home, since I attended UC Irvine and he attended CSUN; nevertheless, when we saw each other, we immediately connected again and started talking. I stood next to him the entire night and we danced, talked and laughed. After the party ended, we talked for about five hours.  From our conversation, we realized we had a lot in common and attended the same programs as children; although, we never interacted with each other due to our age difference. After a short time, we realized a relationship was inevitable and started dating. Little did we know, that one cold October night with a brief interaction, would lead to 

eight years later

 and a December wedding!

What do you like to do for fun?

We like to go to the movies, crack the codes in escape rooms, attend concerts, especially jazz festivals (Thomas is a jazz musician), go to Vegas and relax from the stresses of work. 

What is special about your relationship?

Thomas and I can do absolutely anything together. If Thomas is driving, I am always down for a ride.
