The next day, Jerry, smitten with Lisa, got her phone number and the pair began hanging out with mutual friends, then one-on-one, and eventually becoming a couple. The Bride Lisa Hwang, 30, interior designer The Groom Jerry Takeoka, 28, dentist The Date September 22 Six years later, just before Christmas, Jerry surprised Lisa with a Christmas tree holding a single silver ornament that said "Wishes." Inside was written "do come true" along with a sparkling engagement ring. The following fall, the couple exchanged vows, complete with a traditional tea ceremony, overlooking the ocean.
