After connecting through the personals section of the humor website The Onion, Heather and Christian met up in San Francisco in 2005. Before the end of the first date, Christian asked for a second, and Heather felt the connection as well. âI liked how genuine he was. He was very honest with the fact that he liked me,â she says.
Following Christian's romantic beach proposal four years later, the couple tied the knot at a San Francisco mansion that combined stately style with whimsical charm.
Hank Maninger, lead singer of the swing band Stompy Jones, crooned away at the couple's reception. âThey were the first group I saw live and danced to as an undergrad,â says Heather. âThey were memorable to me, and I kept running into them over the years.â As a nod to their wedding locale, the couple chose the song "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" for their first dance.
