How They Met!


Huyen + Mikel met at a DJ set they were both a big fan of in Uptown, Dallas. Huyen saw Mikel from across the room taking photos of the show, he looked up from his camera, they made eye contact, and she shot a smile his way. Minutes later he made his way over to say hi. Something about him made her think, this guy is something else. Maybe it was the way he pushed her friend to the side to introduce himself.. Whatever gave him the courage, they are both so glad he decided to make the move.

The Proposal


To celebrate their five year anniversary, they went back to New York City, a place they have visited every year since being together,. They went to see Wicked off Broadway that night, and capped it off with some ice cream after to fulfill our sweet tooth. Walking back to the hotel, they stumbled onto a random quiet street away from the hustle and bustle. Mikel once again made his move, got down on one knee, and asked Huyen if she would spend the rest of her life with him. With so much love, she happily said yes!!

Thanks for letting me be a part of your big day! Congrats Huyen + Mikel!
