Ifong Chen Weddings

Annie & Aaron Engaged!

Are not they so alive and adorable?! When Annie show up with almost no make up and massy hair, I know I have found the bride I’ve dreaming for. They are…something funky, something cool, something that is so different!! Here is where they are in a place called home! Green Bluff!

Aaron and I are your semi-typical high school musical sweethearts, without the cool hair and choreographed dance moves. When we met, I was 15 he was 17 and we were the most competitive students in our PE class at University High School. I immediately sought  him as someone to test my athletic prowess while he was subtly trying to catch my eye from across our attendance spots (and breaking my finger in a basketball game during the process). That spring semester ended with an epic water fight and no exchange of phone numbers.
Summer went by and we didn’t see each other until we ended up both being “Crimson Crew Leaders” at orientation for the incoming freshman class. Before orientation the leaders were required to attend a weekend retreat. It was there ,during a rainy pick up soccer game, that I realized that the handsome, athletic senior boy on the other team was the same boy in my PE class just a few months earlier whom also happened to be the kicker on the high school’s football team and captain of the soccer team. Being on the women’s soccer team, I began to watch out for Aaron in the hallways and during his football games.
It wasn’t until the long awaited, stressful homecoming season and a few hallway encounters later that it seemed Aaron could be the first boy I would maybe, possibly, if I had to, go to the dance with. But it wasn’t until he showed up unexpectedly at my house with a rose in his hand, that I couldn’t deny my attraction towards him.
 The dance was on October 2nd 2009 and on October 17th after a Spokane Chief’s victory, he became the first (and only) boy I would refer to as “boyfriend” and asked if he could accompany my family and I to church the next day… The rest of our story has been one of a constant journey of growth, love, trust and commitment to one another and our relationships with God. I am honored to be marrying my absolute best friend of four years next July.
