It was in 2002 when Trina and Rye first met. Trina shares, "We met at a retreat. I actually had a secret crush on him back then, but I just kept it to myself. We did not get introduced until a few months after the event. He started calling me, and we would talk until the wee hours of the night. Finally on New Years day in 2003, we officially became a couple."
Eight years later, Rye proposed to Trina in Paris during a business trip. Trina relays, "I was upset with myself because we couldn't find the place where we were supposed to buy our tickets from. Just when I was about to burst out in tears out of frustration, he held my hand and walked me to a nearby bridge, to this little corner by the River Seine and told me that he has something that would make me feel better. He got something from his pocket, got down on one knee, and showed me the most beautiful ring. He then asked me to marry him with the River Seine and some strangers as our witnesses."
Trina and Rye's celebration of love was filled with smiles and laughter. The people they love gathered together to bear witness to their union as husband and wife.
To add their personal touch to the wedding, Trina and Rye prepared some of the details for the ceremony. The bride also summoned her bridesmaids to help her work on decorations for the reception.
Rye swept Trina of her feet again by serenading her during the reception. The groomsmen and the bridesmaids entertained the crowd by eagerly participating in the games prepared for them. Everyone was in a cheery mood throughout the night.
According to Trina, planning a wedding wasn't as easy as she expected it to be. She narrates, "As the wedding date was drawing near, more and more tiny details that needed to be sorted out kept popping up. Wedding planning is a commitment. It takes time, patience, understanding, and love. Luckily, I was not alone. I had my husband to help me. I gave him groom errands to accomplish, and he truly delivered."
