Ms. Raquel Evita Saraswati & spouse Ms. Anh Dao Kolbe

In a May 2004 interview prior to the August 2, 2005 marriage:

Raquel Evita Seidel, 20, of Brookline, said she and her girlfriend, Anh Dao Kolbe, have been together nine months. While they are confident they want to marry, they also want to take the time to plan something that respects Seidel’s Arab and Latin traditions and 33-year-old Kolbe’s Vietnamese traditions. “We want it to be something special, not about hype and not about media,” Seidel said.

Note: it appears they recently had a second ceremony, so if you want to buy them something check out their wedding gift registry— there are plenty of gaps to fill!
