Andrea and Edwin met at the University of Washington at the Quad for their Engagement Session. No purple on Easter morning for this couple… it was all about the beautiful PINK Cherry Blossom trees! My oh my it was such a treat. I had fun getting to know this sweet couple more while surrounded by the full blossoms. The campus is truly magical this time of year.
And, a little about the couple:
Andrea was born on the Yongsan military base in Seoul, South Korea. After moving every few years, she finally settled in Colorado Springs, Colorado where she attended high school and college. After graduating from University of Colorado, she moved to Seattle for an AmeriCorps position with College Access Now. Andrea enjoys reading and spending time with her family.
Edwin was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico where he lived until he moved away for college. Edwin moved to Fort Worth, Texas where he attended Texas Christian University. After completing his undergraduate education, he moved to Seattle where he attended University of Washington to pursue a Ph.D. in economics. Currently, Edwin is a post-doctoral fellow at the Veteran’s Affairs Northwest Center for Outcomes Research in Older Adults. In his free time, he enjoys trying new restaurants and blogging about his food experiences.
It was at Vacation Bible School 2009 at Seattle Community Church, where these two met. After lunch, Andrea spotted Edwin sitting alone working on his laptop. He looked upset, even angry. Andrea approached him and sat down next to him and asked what he was doing. He explained that he was running a simulation for his dissertation, and that it wasn’t going well. Andrea replied, “You should smile more and try to look happier because there are little kids around.”
Since then, they have enjoyed countless dinner dates and lots of Pacific Northwest outings. Berry picking in the summer and pumpkin picking in the fall have become traditions for them. They enjoy food adventures and love trying food trucks! Andrea and Edwin are looking forward to their wedding this summer at the Hollywood Schoolhouse.
