Brian and I met at UNC Charlotte. We’d always been friends and even worked together post-graduation at the same bank. Brian was always so sweet and we often talked about grabbing lunch together, but the timing never worked out.  He used to walk past my desk every day to say hello, but it wasn’t until years later, after I left the company, that lunch actually happened. Once we went on that lunch date that was it!

On Saturday, April 23, 2016, I returned home from a fun day of hanging out with my best friend, which included attending bootcamp and getting ice cream (balance), to get a shower. Brian was acting strange, singing tunes around the house and being super cheery. I thought it was odd, but didn’t question it.

After I had showered, he showed me a set of heartfelt messages from our parents talking about how much they loved us and how happy they were that Brian and I found each other.

Then, I saw Brian holding my beloved 13-year-old Shih Tzu, Mr. Moe, who had a ring hanging from his collar. Brian got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes and Mr. Moe started snoring. It was the perfect proposal. – As told by Xuan-Xuan

Xuan-Xuan & Brian were married June 10, 2017.
