Vicky Vi Thuy Doan-Nguyen and Edward Boynton Trigg were married May 11 at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau. Joey Tai, a staff member of the New York City Clerk’s Office, officiated. Later this month, the couple will have a self-uniting ceremony at Ghost Ranch, an education and retreat center in Abiquiú, N.M., that will include a tea ceremony, which is a Vietnamese wedding tradition.
The bride and groom both work in the department of materials science and engineering at Ohio State University in Columbus. She is an assistant professor and he is a postdoctoral researcher, conducting basic research on novel composite materials.
The bride, 33, who will take her husband’s name, graduated from Yale and received a doctoral degree in materials science and engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. In 2013, the bride was a graduate intern, working on policy to encourage graduation of more science, technology, engineering and mathematics majors, particularly at historically black colleges and universities, and also helped with projects concerning the material genome initiative, in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
She is a daughter of Cindy Nuong Doan and Henry Hoa Nguyen of Westminster, Calif. The bride’s parents both work at Pacific Architects and Engineers in Laguna Niguel, Calif. Her father is a file clerk and her mother is a data entry clerk.
The groom, 31, graduated from Stanford University and also received, on Thursday, a doctoral degree in materials science and engineering from Penn, where the couple met.
He is a son of Anne C. Boynton-Trigg and Eric R. Trigg of Brooklyn. The groom’s mother is the vice president for export sales and marketing at Scholastic, the educational materials company in Manhattan. His father is a freelance producer and director of corporate communications in Brooklyn.
