Our Story

August 2016: Muggs and Steph meet in the Incheon airport with a bunch of new teachers while waiting to go to their new homes and workplace in Seoul. (Muggs barely remembers this after 14 hours of flying.)


November 2016: While Steph thought they were already friends, Muggs says that they actually became friends after hiking Hallasan (the tallest mountain in South Korea) together for sunrise. (This is still the best view Steph has had for a sunrise Hallasan hike.)


2017: Continued friendship


2018 and on: Muggs and Steph become better friends and hang out frequently until eventually deciding to see if there is something more there. They have many adventures together, in Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, Bali, the Philippines, West Virginia and other parts of the world (and have lots of ‘quality’ time together at home during COVID when travel was not much of an option). 


October 2022: Muggs and Steph decide to find some new adventures and begin job hunting as a couple. In February they are offered jobs in Madagascar and Penang, Malaysia. They choose Penang and begin apartment hunting together. 


May 2023: Muggs completely surprises Steph by proposing at the Donneko waterfall, one of their favorite spots in Jeju. Steph really had no clue and didn’t even notice the ring Muggs was trying to offer her. 


August 2023: Muggs and Steph survive the multiple-days-long travel and move into their new apartment in Penang, where they learn (and continue to learn) how to live together (and plan a wedding from the opposite side of the world). 


July 19, 2024: Muggs and Steph are looking forward to celebrating the start of a new story together with all of you!

Our Wedding Date is July 19, 2024

*Since we spend all year working with kids we decided to take a break from them during our wedding. Sorry, you'll have to find a way to enjoy yourself without them!
