Hometown Wedding for a Globe-trotting Couple

28 Feb 2019, Posted by P.J. Oswald in Weddings

Nobody would accuse Tricia and Waison of being homebodies. They’re from California and Alberta, Canada, respectively, though it just so happens that their paths first crossed all the way over in China. And while technically it was work that took them there, they see now that God was conspiring to bring their hearts together. Their relationship bloomed during the course of a masterclass in long-distance dating and engagement. But when it came time to marry, they made arrangements for a hometown wedding—in Tricia’s hometown of Elk Grove, that is.
