More Than Coworkers – Phuong & Brandon’s Maui Beach Wedding

Are you just as curious about amazing love stories? Well, let us tell you the heartwarming tale of Phuong and Brandon’s Maui beach wedding. It all started in September 2018 at a children’s science center in Orange County, CA. Phuong was busy working the annual Gala, where Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was set to perform. Little did she know, her life was about to take an unexpected turn.

As fate would have it, Brandon was part of the band crew and had to arrive early to set up for the show. Phuong was assigned to assist them, ensuring everything ran smoothly. Both were hustling and bustling throughout the day, with minimal interaction between them. Exhausted after a 16-hour workday, Phuong left without saying goodbye.

The following day, Phuong decided to keep things professional and texted Brandon to inquire about the loadout. Little did she know that one text would lead to a conversation, which led to their first date and many more after that. Their connection grew stronger, and in May 2022, they found themselves on a romantic vacation in Maui…and you can imagine it led to something truly special!

Where It All Began

Surrounded by the beauty of Maui, Brandon surprised Phuong with a proposal. Overwhelmed with joy, she said, “Yes!” before he could even finish asking. But there was a funny twist – the ring he presented was a silly plastic smiley face ring, causing Phuong to think it was a joke momentarily. However, Brandon quickly reassured her that it was just a placeholder, as he had a real ring on hold pending her ring size confirmation. “Peace was restored in the world,” Phuong jokingly said, and their love story continued to unfold!

So fast forward to their Maui beach wedding, which was a beautiful and intimate event, reflecting their deep love and commitment. They couldn’t think of a better place for their vows than Maui. Maluaka Beach provided the perfect backdrop – elegant yet beachy, just like their love. With only the two of them and the breathtaking Maui sunset, they celebrated the beginning of their next chapter.
