Hey, I'm a former Navy sailor that met my fiance on the first ship I was stationed on. I've since gotten out, and he's now on shore duty, but we've finally decided it's time to make everything legal and throw an awesome party at the same time!
We're getting married at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina (maybe) on August 2nd (possibly) with 75 guests (we think). We just got engaged on October 19th, so we're still working on hammering down a venue and date, and we have about 10 people on the guest list so far - including us and our attendants!
We began dating while we were on liberty in Patong Beach, Thailand in 2008. We finally decided that we had been afraid of a relationship long enough, and that it wasn't worth being miserable without each other in order to preserve our friendship. Luckily it all worked out :)
Due to the conditions of our relationship beginnings, we decided to pay homage to that time and place with a comtemporary Asian-fusion wedding. Our colors are tangerine and wasabi (so much fun!); tangerine orange for my love of South Asian Culture, my ties to the Tiger Lily that grows on my parents' property where I grew up, and wasabi green for our love of sushi, and green is FI's favorite color.
I grew up in Maine, FI was born in Washington State, but moved to Texas before we both joined the Navy and met in San Diego. What better place to merge our families than the city we met in?
I can't wait to get married, 2014 can't come fast enough!
