Mandy & Wayne met by being in the right place at the right time; Mandy was visiting friends on the west side of the state, where Wayne lived. They began a long-distance relationship until Mandy moved to Olympia. Now both in Yakima, they remember smiling and laughing through their entire wedding ceremony. At the end, when they were announced as husband and wife, Mandy says she had “never been so happy or so in love.”
