Donovan and Kiralyn have a story that has taken them all over the world. On a beach in South Korea, a woman from Lodi, CA and a man from Australia met while teaching in the country. From there, their story began to unfold. By the time they moved to the Middle East, Donovan and Kiralyn’s friendship had turned into a relationship. “We were married last year, which is when our story really begins. He proposed in late June and we married in July. When we got married, it was the first time we were able to live in the same country and really get to know each other and grow together, which is what brought us to our wedding this year to celebrate on our first anniversary!”
As a gift to Donovan, Kiralyn included Australian elements, such as a stuffed wombat that the ring bearer carried, eucalyptus branches in the decor, and a bagpiper who played during the ceremony processional.
The sand included was from Korea where they met, Tahoe where Donovan proposed, and California where they are now living.
