San Diego History Center curator and artist Tara Smith, 33, started chatting with Andrew Centybear, 36, and The Shanty in Cardiff-by-the-Sea over a game of pool.
The went on their first date two nights later, and have been together ever since. Andrew proposed at the end of an icy Christmas Eve sunrise hike in Vermont. After braving rough wintry conditions, the couple reached the mountain summit, where Andrew got down on one knee. One year later, the two were married in an intimate ceremony in Balboa Park, surrounded by 90 guests.
