Mai-an & Ben in Dallas, TX
Mai-An and Ben met in high school. "He won me over with his humor and positive attitude," recalls Mai-An. "That hasn't changed one bit, and I hope it never will."

The Date July 14
Years later, Mai-An had just finished dental school and Ben was still attending, so they promised to give each other small Christmas gifts. Ben gave Mai-An a scrapbook filled with mementos of their last ten years -- and on the final page it read,"Will you marry me?" Mai-An was incredibly surprised and happy. The couple soon began planning a wedding in their hometown of Dallas, where many of their friends and family members still live.
