Since the time Yuna was about thirteen years old and moved half way across the world to attend high school, she’s lived away from home. There, she fostered an independent spirit, an ability to learn new things incredibly fast and to make friends easily. All of those things came in handy after graduation when she went to Princeton University. During her first year, she decided to join the crew team - a decision that would end up changing her life. She was new to the sport but she quickly became a coxan and caught the eye of a tall, handsome man named Barrett.
Yuna and Barrett became friends and spent some time together that year before the summer break would have them spending time apart. The following year, they decided to stay on campus together during spring break and that’s when they finally started dating. They’ve been together ever since, throughout the rest of college and as they each began their careers in Washington, DC. That’s where Barrett proposed, asking Yuna to be his wife while they each were standing under red umbrellas in the pouring rain.
This summer they exchanged vows in front of their friends and family by the water in the gorgeous Connecticut shoreline. During her vows, Yuna described exactly how she feels when she looks in Barrett’s eyes (and made all of our eyes water in the process.) “Even though I’m 7000 miles from Tokyo, in your eyes I have found my home.”
