Dear Thanh and Eric,

It’s interesting to think about the people in your life who make an impact. People that you may not expect to become close with or share a laugh with, end up being a big part of your life. You both are a perfect example. Your love for each other has not only changed your life, but it will continue to grow for many years to come.

You both have also impacted many other lives that you have encountered. I, for example, have been lucky enough to have met you a couple of years ago and since you have become my very close friends. Thanh, a creative, intelligent, kind-hearted, beautiful soul – you have the ability to brighten everyone’s day with your smile. And Eric, an altruistic, humorous, brilliant man, with a heart of a romantic. Being friends with you two is the best and I can honestly say that you both have impacted my life in a profound way. We’ve had some pretty good laughs, and we share a passion for food, history, and art (but mostly food). I know that I’m not the only one to say that being friends with you has changed me for the better. I only regret that I didn’t meet you sooner.

Thanh and Eric, you met almost 6 years ago, while working at the same small sandwich shop. You met, fell in love, and finally, Eric proposed at dawn at the picturesque historic Pittock Mansion, atop a beautiful hill overlooking the whole city (very smooth move by the way). Thanh, you picked out the most beautiful antique engagement ring at a local jeweler in Portland. Not to get too sappy or anything, but you two really do complete each other.

Your love story is just beginning, and I am so thrilled that you two are getting married this year. Your September wedding at the Abernethy Center Veiled Garden, where your family and friends can celebrate the love that you share, will be one of those moments that people will hold on to and remember always.

Congratulations to my friends, Eric and Thanh – I wish you all the happiness in the world.

I love you both!
