Maya and Jon had one class together in college and although they both had significant others, they still developed a little bit of a crush on each other …

After that, they didn’t see each other again for several years. However, as fate would have it, they met again, and they both happened to be in the right place at the right time and a college-crush developed into true love.


And yet, once again, career opportunities and obstacles got in the way, and for a while it seemed that is where this story would end. Three years of long distance phone calls and all too brief weekend trips ensued. Finally those came to a halt when Maya joined Jonathan in Northern California. Together again, they decided not to wait any longer to start a new chapter in their lives.

On May 1, 2009, among a small circle of friends and family … in a low-key ceremony in San Francisco, they were married at San Francisco’s City Hall

After the wedding, they left for the romantic island of Bora Bora in French Polynesia, and spent an unforgettable week in paradise.

From Zoom Photography’s blog “They found their piece of paradise watching the sunrises and sunsets from a bungalow deck, overlooking a perfectly azure lagoon.”
