Love Story

15% Chart
15% of people meet their spouse at work

Nikki and Christian met in early 2008 at RED Interactive Agency, where they both still work. For over a year, Christian displayed remarkable professional resolve by hiding his secret co-worker crush. Then... late in 2009, they became close friends: chatting over IM, frequenting hip-hop dance classes, texting all hours of the night and creating ridiculous excuses to spend time together whenever possible.

8out of10 women think that the first kiss will tell them everything they need to know about a relationship

Nikki and Christian spent their first date playing Scrabble and dancing to oldies at Mel's Diner, where they had their first kiss while dancing to The Beatles (no one else was dancing... or kissing for that matter). They officially started dating September 27th, 2009 and their "secret" romance was unearthed at work as witnesses reportedly "saw Harden making out with Shum in the parking lot."

Wedding Party

Bride's Party

Natasha Shum bridesmaid at Nikki Shum-Harden's wedding

Natasha Shum,
Matron of Honor

Natasha is Nikki's eldest sister and the person who introduced Nikki to RED (and therefore to Christian). Nikki also owes surviving her first year of semi-financial independence, her fashion sense, and her countless photos hob-knobbing with celebs to Natasha. Nikki has often been called Tasha's "mini me," a nickname she's proud to have.

Natalie Shum bridesmaid at Nikki Shum-Harden's wedding

Natalie Shum,
Matron of Honor

Natalie is Nikki's second eldest sister and her role model of a successful woman. When she's not with her adorable two daughters and wonderful husband, Natalie is saving lives as an ER doctor. Nikki hopes one day she can sing/paint/cook/dance a fraction as well as Natalie does.

Becky Modglin bridesmaid at Nikki Shum-Harden's wedding

Rebecca Modglin,

Becky has been Nikki's best friend since they were 12 years old and the sole members of GAG (Girls Against Golf). When they're together, they eat ice cream and chocolate and talk for hours on end. Nikki "lavas" Becky and she always will.

Jenny Greenwald bridesmaid at Nikki Shum-Harden's wedding

Jennifer Greenwald,

Jenny spends 40+ hours/week in the office next to Nikki and was among the first to catch Christian and Nikki "in the act." She has seen the couple's relationship grow from co-workers to co-habitants and knows their journey well. Three years ago, Nikki didn't think she'd have a fourth bridesmaid, but Jenny had her at hello (with some persuasion).

Groom's Party


CJ Price,
Best Man

CJ and Christian became close friends in 2000 when CJ took the then Virginia Tech freshman under his wing, becoming Christian's greatest mentor and shaper of good and evil for the next decade! CJ and Christian moved to Las Vegas together in 2005 where they continued to hone their skills in debauchery until CJ was saved from a life of pool-solocup-war and Frisbee-golf by his amazing wife Shiva.


Matthew Schumann,

Matthew and Christian have been best friends since they were about 10 years old. Matt has an amazing memory and loves sharing embarrassing stories about Christian from Middle School to College and beyond. Matthew and Christian are the most loyal of friends with a great history of adventure, success, and mayhem; adapting and growing their strong friendship throughout their ever changing and evoloving lives.


Brian Mackey,

Brian and Christian met Freshman year at Virginia Tech where they became fast friends, eventual roommates, impromptu study-hall song and dance partners, firework fiends, and perpetual plotters and jokesters. Brian's antics kept Christian laughing hysterically for years, which caused deep permanent laugh-wrinkles on his face. Brian truly enjoys life and makes life more enjoyable for those lucky enough to be around him.


Chad White,

Chad and Christian spent pretty much every waking minute together for 3 years in college. Chad is a soft-spoken brilliant thinker who challenges Christian's perspective on life, the universe, and everything. Chad continues to shape, cultivate, and awaken Christian's spiritual and metaphysical understanding and perception of the world.


Joshua Jetson,

Josh and Christian met at RED and became LA music-junkies together - attending countless concerts around the city. Josh is extremely creative and keeps Christian's imagination and artistic appreciation alive with zombie-photoshoots, turkey-hat making parties, and daily music referrals. Josh is also thoughtful, always using his creative energy to help his friends. Josh helped Christian chalk the proposal letter!
