We're Engaged!

January 2015

 

It was a typical Saturday night in Las Vegas, NV, and Zedd was headlining at XS nightclub. The music was pumping, and the drinks were flowing. As fate would have it, Nathan and Karen were introduced by mutual friends, and they meet for the first time.

 

September 2020

 

Five years later and in the midst of the pandemic shutdown, Nathan reminisces over the days of live concerts and decides to post some video archives to his Instagram. Karen watches these stories and messages Nathan wanting to learn more. After chatting about their shared interest in music, Nathan works up the courage to ask Karen out on their first date. They decide to meet in Palo Alto, CA, on a Sunday night: dinner at Ramen Nagi, ice cream at Salt & Straw, and Niners lose to the Eagles 25-20.

December 2020

 

Karen accepts a new job offer! To congratulate her on this tremendous milestone, Nathan wants to send a thoughtful gift and comes up with the perfect idea: what better than a surprise trip back to where it all started for them - Las Vegas. After checking into their suite at Caesar's Palace and enjoying a delicious dinner at The X Pot, Nathan and Karen decide to define their relationship and officially label themselves as boyfriend and girlfriend.

August 2021

 

As the months go on, the love between Nathan and Karen is undeniable. They are both smitten and take pleasure in each other's presence. It's the simple gestures, like Karen's home-cooked meals or Nathan's spontaneous excursions, that give them the confidence to evolve their relationship. With Karen's apartment lease coming to an end, it only makes sense for Karen to move in with Nathan. They are already spending most of their time in each other's presence and feel ready for their next chapter: living together.

 

July 2022

 

​Nathan and Karen welcome Naya to the family! Naya is a blue-merle Mini Aussiedoodle (Australian Shepherd and Poodle mix) whose curiosity and affection bring unconditional love to their home. Naya's puppyhood teaches both Nathan and Karen the power of responsibility, patience, and compassion.

 

March 2023

 

During their trip to Hawaii with friends, Nathan and Karen drive to the west side of Oahu and indulge themselves at Laniwai Spa, located inside Disney's Aulani Resort. Following their treatments, they both start to get ready for "dinner at a beachside restaurant." As they drive towards their destination, they eventually arrive at Makua Beach where Nathan reveals a surprise proposal for Karen that he has been meticulously planning for months. Holding onto her and professing his love, Nathan proposes: kneeling down on one knee and asking for Karen's hand in marriage, vowing to cherish and love her forever.

Registry

Do you have a Wedding Registry?

Thank you for considering a gift to celebrate our wedding day! We are incredibly grateful to have everything we need to start our new life together and have decided not to have a traditional registry.

Instead, we would be honored if you considered a monetary contribution towards our honeymoon and future plans. Your generous gesture would enable us to create unforgettable memories and build a future together as a couple.

Your presence at our wedding is truly the greatest gift and we cannot wait to celebrate our special day with you. Thank you for your love, support, and generosity.

Warmly,​

Nathan and Karen
