Los Angeles Athletic Club l Los Angeles, CA



We’ve all heard the saying, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”, but for Yoko and Chad, a chance meeting in Las Vegas was a life changing event that they would both share with all their friends and family.

Chad being on a business trip and Yoko on a trip with her friend, they met during an evening out at the nightclub, Hakkasan. Sparks flew and their short time together made them realize that there was something special between them that was worth pursuing. Although they lived in separate parts of the country, even the 1,500-mile distance between Houston and Los Angeles wasn’t enough to keep them apart. After 6 months of maintaining a long-distance relationship, Chad joined Yoko in Los Angeles to begin their life together.

Returning to Houston to spend Christmas with Chad’s family, Yoko joined in a family tradition of spending the day opening gifts with the family. After opening over twenty gifts, she was told that there was one gift left and that she needed to close her eyes, as it was the biggest surprise yet. Her eyes opened to see Chad on one knee, ring in hand, proposing in front of his entire family! Yoko received a beautiful engagement ring, Chad a gorgeous fiancée , and the entire family got to welcome the newest member of the family. It was the perfect proposal to top off a perfect Christmas!  



In search of their perfect wedding venue they returned to the sunny city of Los Angeles. Living in downtown LA they had created so many wonderful memories, so when they viewed the rooftop venue at the Los Angeles Athletic Club, where they could reminisce about their time together while overlooking the city where their love first grew, they knew it was the place they would become husband and wife.

Their wedding day was shared with family and friends, and endless joy, but the highlight of the day was getting to share the day with their young son. “We have a one-year old son named Austin and the fact that he was able to participate in the ceremony and come down the aisle was incredible. We also got to share our first dance with him and that was very special to us.” From Las Vegas, to Los Angeles, to Houston and back, true love persevered and their life as husband and wife began with a dream wedding in one of the worlds most gorgeous cities.
