Mary & Gary in San Marino, CA

Despite attending the same college and sharing mutual friends, Mary and Gary didn't meet until years later when a friend decided to set them up. After many failed attempts due to scheduling conflicts, the pair finally met at their friend's Rose Bowl Party. They hit it off instantly and made plans for their first date -- a friendly game of tennis followed by brunch. The Bride Mary Chou, 32, architect The Groom Gary Tsay, 33, mechanical engineer The Date September 15 Thirteen months later Gary insisted that Mary play him in their favorite game, Scrabble. She reluctantly agreed. After an extremely long game, Mary stuck her hand into the Scrabble bag to choose her final letters. Instead, she pulled out an engagement ring! Gary then got down on one knee and proposed. He later revealed that the ring was in the bag the entire time and he was so anxious and confused as to why it took so long for her to find it. After planning for seven months, the couple wed in the backyard of Mary’s parents’ home.
