When first-year law school student Wendy needed advice, she found a friend and confidant in Harvard Law student Brando. They were madly in love before they even knew what hit them, and now they're getting hitched.
A Lesson In Love
Wendy, 28, said she was not looking for love when she met her husband-to-be Brando, 30. "I was about to start law school and was completely focused on that," she said. But to her surprise, one date turned into a five-year romance, and now they're ready to live happily ever after together.
"When we first started dating, we were both busy students trying to maintain a long-distance relationship," Wendy said. "So whenever we had the chance to get together we would try to make the most of it — like going to a baseball game, having drinks at Starbucks, going to the movies, strolling around Manhattan, and dining at a restaurant all within 12 hours! It was like five dates in one."
Wendy said she knew a proposal was coming, but Brando totally caught her off guard. "My honey proposed with a light yellow pear cut diamond ring," she said. "It is my dream ring! I did show it to him but had no clue that he bought it."
