Pebbles, we are so happy that you finally found your match. You will forever by one of my most important friends and I was always hoping you'd meet the right guy. It was great meeting Robert over dinner and we look forward to getting to know him even better this coming May! No pressure, but now I'm trying to picture what your first dance will look like. Will you do the famous leg flick? Will Robert drop you? I suppose other people might be confused by that question, but that's OK, because this message is for you!

Wedding Ceremony and Reception

Saturday, May 16, 2015 - 4:00 pm

Ritz Carlton Marina del Rey
4375 Admiralty Way
Marina del Rey, CA

The wedding ceremony and reception will take place at the gorgeous Ritz Carlton Marina del Rey located along the marina. The "Coastal Elegance" theme reflects the oceanside lifestyle that we both love.

There will be both a Thai ceremony and American ceremony representing our two cultures. Followed by dinner, dancing and celebration! The dress code is black tie formal.

Out-of-towners, the bridal party and close friends and family should plan to stay for a casual post-wedding brunch on Sunday beginning at 11:30am, along the ocean of course!

About Us

The Groom

Rather than write our own bios in this section, we thought it would be more meaningful to share the speeches given by our representatives as part of the Thai engagement ceremony which - per Thai tradition - are meant to expound upon the qualities of the bride and groom to formally present them to their respective families.

Robert's work colleage acted as his representative and here is what he said during the ceremony:

Robert hails from a strong mid-western background with an upbringing that has instilled in him core family values that will enable him to be a wonderful, kind and loving husband to your daughter. The Schools are warm, unpretentious, "salt of the earth" people who have already welcomed Vicharin into their family with open arms.

Robert himself possesses standout qualities that make him a perfect match for someone like Vicharin. He is a true gentleman, something that is rare these days, who is also considerate, generous, patient and kind. He has a good heart and an inner strength which makes him someone Vicharin can trust and rely upon.

Robert is intelligent and hard-working, with a stable career path managing information technology for LAACO, a 134 year old company that owns and operates prestigious private clubs such as the Los Angeles Athletic Club and the California Yacht Club. Today, as its main line of business, LAACO owns and operates 48 self storage properties in 4 south-western states under the name of Storage West. Prior to working for LAACO Robert previously led entrepreneurial endeavors where he successfully started and ran profitable companies such as a commercial coffee supply business followed by an engineering company. He has a unique expertise that should enable him to always find stability and success in his career.

Most importantly, however, is how obvious it is that Robert absolutely cherishes, loves and adores Vicharin with all of his heart. Anyone who has seen the two of them together, as my wife and I have, instantly witnesses the affection and special regard Robert has for Vicharin. He sees her as his special Princess and himself as the White Knight who will protect and care for her always. He knew from the moment they met that this was someone extraordinary who touched him and impacted him like no other. As they spent time together it became obvious to him that he wanted to marry her and be with her forever.

Robert and Vicharin are, in every sense of the word, true soul mates. Robert will dedicate his life to bringing her the same happiness that she brings to him every day.

We are hopeful that you will consider Robert worthy and accept him into your family.

About Us

The Bride

Rather than write our own bios in this section, we thought it would be more meaningful to share the speeches given by our representatives as part of the Thai engagement ceremony which - per Thai tradition - are meant to expound upon the qualities of the bride and groom to formally present them to their respective families.

Pebbles' dear Uncle acted as her representative and here is what he said during the ceremony:

My niece Vicharin belongs to a most prominent family in Thailand. Her grandfather served the country as Minister of Foreign Affairs and as Vice Prime Minister and was the individual responsible for changing the name of the country from Siam to Thailand.

Guided by the equal prominence of her mother's business family, Vicharin received a Bachelor of Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) followed by an MBA (Master of Business Administration) from Harvard Business School. She has gone on to achieve a successful career as a top marketing executive, progressing from managing major car launches with Ford Motor Company to leading the entire Movie and Super Heroes games division as a Director of Marketing for Activision to her current role as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) with Adornably, an award-winning interior design app. ** Vicharin is now VP of Marketing at Pelican Parts. **

More important than her brain and business capability is the beauty of her heart and character. My niece is a woman who brings light and joy into the lives of those she encounters. Vicharin always maintains purity in her thoughts, graciousness in her speech and benign positivity in her actions toward others. You can see the warm-hearted and favorable impact Vicharin has had on other's lives by the multitude of close friends that are surrounding her on this special occasion.

I am certain that Robert, who is destined to become the primary protector of her life and recipient of her benevolent intentions and actions, will find his life to be immersed in happiness, complete and fulfilled by the association and union of their two souls.

I hereby declare that I approve of the gracious gesture by the School family and his representatives in offering Robert to be Vicharin's partner and protector in life. On this auspicious occasion, I gladly give my blessing and congratulations to the engagement of my future nephew-in- law and my beloved niece.

About Us

Proposal

We got engaged in Catalina Island on a gorgeous pathway that had the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other.

We had just enjoyed our first ziplining adventure together which was representative of us being on the adventure of life with one another. Robert says that on the way back to the boat, suddenly the path cleared so it was only us - giving him his moment to propose. And yes, he went down on one knee and of course Pebbles said yes!

And that's the simple, romantic version. Of course, there are more fun facts about the proposal... so scroll down if you want to know more (the behind-the-scenes version!)...

-- Robert told Pebbles in their first week of dating that he was going to marry her. Pebbles reponded by saying that normally this would freak her out, but the fact that it wasn't was probably the only positive sign she could provide right then.

-- Pebbles knew150% that Robert would propose that day. While there were many signs pointing to it - including pictures Robert would text to Pebbles of him holding the ring box - perhaps the fact that Robert asked her to make a dinner reservation at her "special occasion" restaurant on Open Table (Pebbles likes to get the VIP points) and put in the comments, "Engagement Celebration" gave it away the most.

-- Robert followed Thai tradition and formally asked Pebbles' parents for her hand in marriage before he proposed to Pebbles.

-- Robert still managed to surprise Pebbles with the ziplining - which was listed on his calendar as 'EVENT' so even Pebbles' peeking could not decipher the activity.

-- Robert's original plan was to be on bended knee when Pebbles zipped down to him. But he thought the better of it when he realized the risk of losing the ring in the forrest underneath! Pebbles thanks him, she would not have wanted to have gotten proposed to when they were both wearing hard hats!

-- Pebbles was so amazed by the gorgeous ring that she may have voiced "Oh! Oh my! Oh my god!" several times before actually remembering to say "Yes" to Robert's proposal. :-)

-- Robert likes to joke that with asking the parents, then asking Pebbles, and then asking officially again in the Thai engagement ceremony that he only had to ask 3 times for Pebbles to marry him. Third time's a charm, right? :-D

About Us

Our Story

There is something to be said about that feeling you get the moment you have met "the one" - you just know something feels right about this person, and it's something you have never felt before. It's something all the great couples speak about but you don't really trust it until you experience that too...

After his second date with Pebbles, Robert told his mother he had met "the one". In their first week of dating, Pebbles confided to her sister that it felt like she had met her soul mate. Strong words indeed coming from two people who had never committed in this way to anyone else. Yet they - we - knew. Destiny had a path, and we recognized it was towards one another all our lives.

And when you meet your soul mate, you very naturally start planning towards your lives together. We are eager to get "forever everywhere together" started. And so we have. And we are so thankful to have you here on that path with us.

Welcome
