Married and celebrated:
On December 12, 2012, at Spinasse on Capitol Hill

Although they both lived in Seattle, Kathleen Khoo, 36, and Christopher Evans, 32, met while on vacation in the Bay Area—albeit for very different reasons. Kathleen, a part-time chef and project manager for Red Dog Interactive, was in town to participate in a half-marathon; and Christopher, a software test engineer for Amdocs, was there to keep a friend company while his wife also ran the race. But fate intervened, and the two managed to find each other and hit it off. After two years of dating and a picnic proposal in Magnolia Park, Kathleen and Chris married during an intimate Italian feast at Spinasse, one of their favorite restaurants. The two wed on December 12, 2012, or 12/12/12, a date they chose for its symmetry. Everything fell into place on this fortuitous date, with 12 guests attending a ceremony that ended precisely at 12:12 p.m. Afterward, the guests enjoyed a microbrew that had been released on that very same day and an incredible selection of 12 desserts.
