“They thought we made a perfect match and were slowly maneuvering us so we would spend more time [together]. Their plan worked. We went on our first official date in August 2011,” Chang, 36, said.
Weese, 30, said it didn’t take long to know Chang was the one.
“I realized that I have never known someone like this who I could go so deep with, yet laugh loudly with,” he said. “Someone with whom I was so comfortable around, and yet continually surprised me.”
Five months after meeting, Weese proposed on the bluff overlooking Santa Monica’s Ocean Avenue. The couple wed on May 12 at Campanile Restaurant surrounded by 100 friends and family.
“It was an international crowd. (My) best man flew in from Spain, and Esther had friends come from China and Cambodia,” Weese said. “We had no dancing, but a lot of great food and drink. No cake cutting, just Campanile’s signature desserts.”
