Susan and David found each other thanks to mutual friends who decided they would be a perfect match, despite living on opposite coasts. They set David (who was living in LA) up with Susan (in Manhattan). Despite initial reluctance, their first phone conversation lasted four hours! Susan, who is not a phone person, knew she had found someone she could marry.
The Bride Susan Bang, 31, fashion designer
The Groom David Kim, 31, navy chaplain
The Date May 3
They maintained a long distance relationship until one day, after a Navy ceremony, David -- in full uniform -- declared his love and proposed in front of all his military friends. Eight months later, they were married in a rustic, outdoorsy ceremony, which maintained its charm despite the rain that forced them indoors.
