BaMe first met on a boat back on April 30th, 1975 when they were on their way to America from Viet Nam. It truly was love at first sight! Fast forward 41 years later to today, July 2, 2011, and now we celebrate their 35th Wedding Anniversary!! They had a big celebration at one of their favorite restaurants the Emerald Bay in Santa Ana where all their close friends and family gathers to party the night away. Co Muoi did a great job DJ-ing and hosting the celebration! My mother in law had her ao dai (tradition Vietnamese dress) custom made and it turned out absolutely stunning and beautiful on her! We all had a wonderful time celebrating their marriage, and it was truly an inspiring event. We have lots of AMAZING musical performances including a super impression Vietnamese singing from our beautiful cousin Linh and a very soulful and heartfelt song by Bao (Chi Tu), and my awesome husband Khoa sang the best he's ever sung while my brother in law An did a really great job on the guitar as always! BaMe really deserved a great big night to celebrate because they've done so much for their kids, family, friends and loved ones. Just being there and celebrating their marriage was a truly inspiring night and if I sure hope to follow in their footsteps! I wish BaMe 35+ more years of love and happiness!
Here's a sweet poem I found by Karl & Joanna Fuchs:
To make a loving pair.
There’s a joy just being around you,
A feeling we love to share.
For years of joy and pleasure.
May each year keep getting better,
With memories to treasure.
