Carrie and Brandon met on their very first day as freshmen at the University of Washington. As they suffered through many of the same courses, they bonded -- just good pals -- until, during their junior year, they started dating. THE BRIDE Carrie Norbeck THE GROOM Brandon LaDoux THE DATE April 28 Four years after that, Brandon took Carrie (both are now volunteers with the Peace Corps in China) for a walk on the campus and surprised her with an engagement ring. Says Carrie, I was one of those girls who never really gave my wedding much thought until I was engaged, so I was pretty much starting from zero. They only thing I knew I wanted was to have all-white flowers. No matter: Carrie describes planning the wedding as a joyous, fun experience.
