Saymo-Doan Wedding and Anniversary

Christopher Ramos Saymo and Thomas Arthur Doan were legally married in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC., on June 15, 20 years to the day after they first met. They met at a bachelor party when Doan was serving in the military on the island of Guam, where Saymo lived. A few weeks later, Doan proposed to Saymo on top of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Saymo and Doan are both IT professionals working for AT&T. They have been living in D-FW since 1997 and currently reside in Dallas with their three dogs, Butch, Toshi and Deogi. They are planning a reception in October when it is much cooler and will be honeymooning in Vegas shortly thereafter.
