Our Wedding

Kimberly Truong and Richard Karpp

Wedding: March 6, 2004

About Us

Kimberly and Richard currently reside in San Diego, CA.

HOW WE MET: Rich and I met at Starbucks in Sorrento Valley (great pick up joint!)

HOW WE GOT ENGAGED: We had just gotten home from my company party and Rich went upstairs and lit candles in our room. I had finished washing the make up off my face, turned around and saw the room bathed in the glow of candle light. Rich said, 'I want you to open your Valentine's day present today.' He set a big red box on the bed. I had to set it on the ground to open it because it was so heavy. Inside was a jewelry chest. I thanked him and was about to get up to set the box on the dresser when he told me to look inside the drawer because he got me another present. I did and it was a pair of diamond earrings set in bezzled platinum. I was moved...by his generosity and kindness, so I gave him a hug and JOKINGLY said, 'oh...I love you so much...will you marry me?'...to which he said, 'well, that's my 3rd present for you...' We were already on our knees on the floor, so I don't know if he was going to get on his knees or not...but he gave a brief but sweet speech that ended with...WILL YOU MARRY ME? And you know the rest of the story...

Our wedding took place on March 6, 2004. Our wedding took place at Rose Creek Cottage in San Diego, CA. The reception was held at King's Garden in Sorrento Valley.
