Jeanelle & Myron

When she called the police, he came. He kept coming back.

HOW THEY MET—Jeanelle called the police when she saw someone who was in possession of some items she knew had been stolen from a friend’s car. Myron was the Sacramento police officer who answered the call. After that, he often stopped by the jewelry shop where Jeanelle worked “to check up on the business.” Jeanelle, operating on a tip from a guy who suggested Myron might be interested, mustered the courage to ask him out.

OH, MUSUBI—First-date musubi at a local poke restaurant fell off the chopsticks, to Jeanelle’s embarrassment, but the next day, Myron dropped off a full tray of homemade musubi for Jeanelle at work. “From that point, I knew he was a keeper,” she says.

CRUISING ALONG—Myron popped the question on an Alaskan cruise, at the first dinner with family friends present.

IMPORTANT TRADITIONS—Jeanelle is Filipino and Myron is Chinese, and they had a big Catholic wedding with arras (wedding coins), cord and veil, and a Chinese tea ceremony. Jeanelle also dedicated a song and sang alongside the band: “Simple Love Song” by Anuhea. The bridesmaids and girl family members performed a hula dance to a Hawaiian wedding song.
