When Kimberly was talked into making the trek from Long Island into the city one night by her friends, she never thought she'd meet her future husband. That night, Chris, who had also been dragged out by his friends, was in the same situation.
The Bride Kimberly Koehler, 26, cosmetics buyer
The Groom Christopher Plaford, 29, financial trader
The Date May 20
When Kimberly walked up to the bar to get a drink, Christopher offered to buy it. "I thought for sure he had no interest in me, despite the fact he asked for my number," Kimberly says. To her surprise, Christopher called two days later and asked her out on a date that night. Five years later, Christopher whisked Kimberly away to Mexico and proposed on the beach.
