Joyce & Steven

Through mutual friends, Joyce and Steven met on a group camping trip to Big Sur, California..  Their relationship grew closer through random drives around Los Angeles and studying dates for work and college.  On January 21, 2012, Steven asked Joyce to be in a relationship.  Throughout the next few years, they've enjoyed many adventures such as visiting California's National Parks, eating their way through Los Angeles and Orange County, and growing closer with each other and God.  On February 13, 2016, Steven proposed to Joyce and she said, "Yes!"

We look forward to seeing you on April 22, 2017!

Bridesmaids

Deborah Chau Matron of Honor

Deb's my go-to girl when it comes to thoughts on the mind and chatting on the phone.  From random craft days, making sure my graduation hat was secure, to Kpop concerts (SHINEE!) there's never a dull moment with this friend after reconnecting from high school and Sundays at church. 

Sawako Naganuma Bridesmaid

One of the few that understands when a conversion involves coding,  witness of "mendoksai" moments, knowledgeable of the fashion do's and don'ts, and will fix my hair and makeup when it's out of sorts.  Thanks for being a great friend since we first got lost on that camping trip in San Diego.

Tiffanie Liu Bridesmaid

Kindred spirit!  Even though we don't always get a chance to chat - when we reconnect it's like nothing has changed.  Tiff is my whimsical buddy that shares all likes and dislikes since our high school chemistry class days including Anne of Green Gables, anime, to Winnie-the-Pooh.

Amanda Trang Bridesmaid

I don't remember the first day we met, but Amanda's been the steady studious one I would have liked to be =)  She kept me on track with Medical Nutrition Therapy classes while still having fun memorable times in college.

Josephine Dyer Flower Girl

Joey is Joyce's niece and enjoys watching Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, reading, playing with Puppy, singing, and taking walks around the neighborhood and finding her house number.

David Kim Best Man

I chose David as my best man as he is my closest friend.  He was there for me when I need a study buddy or when I need a late night snack at Popeyes. We shared many sleepless nights playing co-op first person shooting games and would only stop once we had beaten the game.

Arnold Lee Groomsman

I met Arnold through David.  Without him, Joyce and I would have never have met and 4-22-2017 would just be an ordinary Earth Day for us.  Over the years we have shared many countless meals over a Korean BBQ grill talking about the future and just having a good time.  

Michael Chen Groomsman

I met Mike through Arnold.  My most memorable experience with Mike was during the creation of a social meetup group together with another friend. Through this, I have learned Mike is a person who will to go the extra mile to make things happen.  In addition, he has taught me some strategies on roulette during our recent trip to Vegas. Whether or not they work you have to ask him and try it out for yourself..YMMV

Kinda Lau Groomsman

Kinda (Kin-da) is one of the first friend I've had since moving to Diamond Bar.  We have been friends since elementary school and have shared many childhood memories together including fishing trips and me losing a rare Pokemon on my GameBoy after losing to a bet.  Even though our friendship had slowly drifted away after high school, we have no problem picking up from where we left off every time we hang out
