Hmong American Wedding Story: Part I – The Engagement.

My husband and I had been dating for about 9 years before we got engaged. In 2014, he popped the question when we were on a trip in Monterey Bay, California, one of our favorite vacation destinations. Even though we had been discussing the prospect of getting married soon, it came as a surprise to me and I was thrilled. Relatives, friends, and co-workers had been asking us for years when we were going to get hitched and now I could say that we were part of the way there.
