Ifong Chen Weddings

Alyssa & Jorden Engaged!

Jordan and I met about eight years ago in Mr. Clark’s math class at Mead High School. One of us had a huge crush on the other, but the feeling wasn’t exactly reciprocated.  I cannot say which was which, as that person feels really bad about it – now that we are about to get married! Fast forward a couple years, and we were put in the same math class again. This time, we BOTH hit it off, and started dating a couple months into the school year! We have been together for six years now.

Jordan and I went to different, but local universities (to stay close) and worked hard to juggle school, jobs, track, internships and each other. Whether it was heading out to Cheney for lunch between classes or driving to Gonzaga for coffee before an 8 a.m. class – we made it work.

Jordan had always said we wouldn’t get engaged until we were both finished with college, so in June of 2013 the excuses were running slim. Just a few short weeks following graduation, the time had FINALLY come. He popped the question outside Cedars Floating Restaurant in Coeur d’Alene, where we had dinner five years prior for my Senior Prom.

We could not be more excited for our big day in May of 2014!
