Meet Al and Nam
Where did you meet?
Nam and I met on a plane from Charlotte, NC to Atlanta, GA (probably one of the shortest commercial flights out there!). Fortunately, we were seated next to one another, whereupon we struck up a conversation. The rest, as they say, is history.
How did he propose?
I proposed to Nam in one of our favorite spots at the Ford Plantation: the pool behind the main house. That pool has a wonderful black bottom that gives it a mysterious, yet alluring feeling. The view of the Ogeechee river is spectacular too. We just love swimming there! The evening that I proposed to Nam, we went up for a pre-dinner swim. I had the ring tucked safely in a towel, which I set by the side of the pool. We waded over to that spot, I got down on one knee (in the shallow end) and I popped the question!
When is your wedding date?
October 29th, 2011
Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?
My family has a residence down at Ford, so we've been going there for a few years and Nam and I spent a lot of time there when we were living in Atlanta. We simply couldn't think of a more perfect place (perhaps with the exception of Westminster Abbey) to get married.
Where do you reside now?
Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your
Nothing crazy. Nam is a Brit and I'm an American. So our wedding will likely feature themes and memorabilia from our respective countries.
We look forward to sharing in the wedding planning process with you two and more importantly…your wedding day!
