1: THE MARRIAGE OF | Brian & Marilen | August 23rd, 2003 | BALDRIDGE
2: Every couple loves to tell and retell the story of how they first met, how they fell in love and how they knew they found the right person. What person would not want to tell that story? We are definitely not an exception to that rule. So, for those of you that are interested, here it goes... It all started in April of 2000 at an interview at Microsoft. Sam A to be exact. I (Marilen) was interviewing for an analyst position and was scheduled to meet with two gentlemen. I sat in an office with one of the interviewers and we chatted while waiting for the second interviewer to arrive since he was running a bit late. Ten minutes later, a guy comes barging into the office. You guessed it, Brian. Our eyes caught, we smiled and the rest is history. When We Fell In Love: When we first met, we were both involved in other relationships, so we did not see each other in any other capacity other than being friends. That is, until both our relationships came to an end. Months later, Brian and I started to spend a little more time together. We took walks around the campus at work, met up for lunch and hung out together during team events. A Special Day - August 21, 2000: This was a memorable day because it was the day that we finally decided to tell each other how we felt. We had carpooled together to a team event in Seattle. Trust me, between two control freaks, it was not easy to just, “Say It”. So of course, it really took another couple of days to get it all out in the open willingly, nervously, and anxiously. August 23, 2000 was the day we openly admitted our admiration and love for each other, and started dating. This is the person I am gong to marry: Some people would say that we are crazy, but we both knew “this is it" during the first month we were together. It is hard to describe how we knew this, but the thoughts were there. Maybe because we have so many things in common. We were raised with the same family values, strict parents who raised us to be responsible adults. We have the same outlook on life, profession and in reaching our goals. We believe in the sanctity of marriage because we respect, care and want to be loyal to each other. We simply compliment each other. We are one another's best friend! | Some people believe there is a person somewhere out there that is meant for them, that they have a soulmate. Brian and I are very lucky to have found each other because we do believe that we are soulmates. We hope you enjoy our wedding day pictures! Love, Brian & Marilen | How We Met
