Patti Takizawa and Mike Tam first met 15 years ago after he moved to Seattle for a new job and to help his mother transition to the Pacific Northwest. The couple became good friends first and shared a love for God and people. They developed romantic feelings for each other and started dating. Mike knew that Patti had 3 favorite things: Christmas, Coca Cola, and movies. Mike decided that proposing on Christmas day, personalizing a Coca Cola bottle and making a homemade video would make her heart explode. Of course Patti smiled a big, “YES!” The nuptials took place on August 27, 2016 at Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle, WA.
