The Bride Kelly Harden, 24, is a dental hygiene student at Valencia College.
The Groom Anhtuan Tran, 27, is a desktop analyst for Tribune Co.
How They Met Before Kelly and Anhtuan fell for each other, their hearts belonged to their cars—each owned an Acura RSX. They met more than five years ago on clubrsx.com, an online forum devoted to car enthusiasts in Central Florida. After bonding over their shared passion, the two began dating. “When we made our relationship ‘official’, it was as if I were dating my best friend,” Kelly says. “There was no question that we weren’t meant for each other.”
Their Engagement During a vacation with friends to Niagara Falls, Anhtuan said he wanted a photo of Kelly in front of the falls. Just as she was turning to pose with Anhtuan at her side, their friends began snapping pictures, and she realized he was down on one knee. “My hands were shaking with excitement and my eyes filled with tears of joy,” Kelly says. “I am very glad that our friends were able to capture this moment on film. I am so happy we also have a photo of Anhtuan’s face just before he asked me to marry him. Priceless!”
Their Wedding The ceremony was held at Cypress Grove Park, followed by a reception under the stars.

"When I began to walk out with my dad,
I knew this was the day I had been waiting for and, even more importantly, this was the man I could not wait to walk
down the aisle towards.” —Kelly
