Charles and Frances met five years ago at a small taqueria in Boston when they both came out to meet a mutual friend. It was love at first sight - for Charles. But with some hard work, he was able to eventually win her over and she agreed to go out on a date with him on August 8. After three years, they decided to take on a new adventure in the Pacific Northwest and moved to Portland, OR on August 1. They welcomed a crazy, yet lovable puppy named Bodhi into their lives ("named after Patrick Swayze's iconic character in the hit movie Point Break," adds Charles), and after one year of west coast living, Charles proposed to Frances on August 30 at home under a double rainbow. August is a special month for us and we cannot wait to celebrate our marriage with you. Thank you to all our friends and family who have supported us, cared for us, and prayed for us all these years!
