Thao and Lawrence met on Match.com. Thao says it took her a year to work up the courage to try online dating, but when she did she found Lawrence. He was her first date through Match and as she put it “the rest is history”. As a couple, they enjoy traveling and trying new and exotic foods! They were on a trip to Florida to soak up some warm weather when Lawrence popped the question.
They were sitting at a local beer garden when Lawrence excused himself to go to the restroom. Meanwhile, a waitress brought Thao a scrapbook Lawrence had made of all of their adventures together. Each page had a different moment and a sweet or funny message. The last page instructed her to leave the bar. Outside, a car was waiting to take Thao to a nearby beach. Lawrence was waiting there. Standing in the middle of a large heart shape drawn in the sand, with a romantic picnic. Meanwhile, musicians were playing “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” and a photographer was there to capture the moment. When Thao approached, Lawrence got down on one knee and asked her to be his bride. Of course, she said yes!
