Nuptials: Andrea Press & Kevin Yue
Andrea Press, 31, is a therapist. Kevin Yue, 30, is an environmental engineer. They live in Silver Spring.
Wedding date: Aug. 14.
Location: Ritz-Carlton in the District.
How they met: In January 2009, Andrea attended her first chapter meeting of a service fraternity alumni association. No one else showed for awhile, but Andrea decided to stick around until Kevin, then the chapter's president, arrived to start the meeting -- 45 minutes late. After that, he pursued her via Facebook until they met up to volunteer together at the Maryland Zoo a month later.
The proposal: By October, Andrea and Kevin were talking about marriage enough to start booking wedding vendors. But before Andrea would sign the venue contract, they had to get engaged -- officially. Kevin popped the question during a horse-drawn carriage ride on a weekend getaway to Harrisonburg.
The wedding: The couple wanted their wedding to reflect their personalities and interests, so they selected motifs and events that incorporated Andrea's Jewish background and Kevin's Chinese ancestry, including a rehearsal dinner at Meiwah, a Jewish marriage ceremony and a traditional Chinese tea ceremony.
The honeymoon: Andrea and Kevin traveled to Greece, where they visited Athens, Crete and Santorini.
