Steve & Crystal

Join us on October 20th, 2018 for the wedding of Steve Xinyu Chen and Crystal Haiying Wu!

Our Story

“Would you like to try out the best diner in Newton?”

This is how our story began. We met through a dating app called Coffee Meets Bagel. While we had no expectations going into our first date, somehow we walked away connected for life. This unexplained force of the universe might be what people call “fate”.

We went on many dates after that and each time we met, we connected deeper with each other. Last October, while hiking in the white mountains, Steve popped the question on the top of mount Pemigewasset.

It's been a whirlwind ever since, we hope you can celebrate this most important event with us!
