Sarah Sasaki and Gregory Tsien

Sarah Sasaki and Gregory Tsien, who met at Gunn High School, were married on July 6 in Maui, Hawaii at the Sugarman's Estate in Makena. Family friend Lea Feinstein of Palo Alto performed the ceremony.

The two have been close friends ever since high school, even while she attended University of California, Berkeley and he was at Stanford University.

The bride is a senior manager at Pacific Gas and Electric Company, where she oversees PG&E's community investment and philanthropy program as well as its corporate foundation. She is a graduate of the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, a former Americorps member, and previously the Northern California Cherry Blossom Queen.

She is the daughter of Go Sasaki, Sr. and Kay K. Sasaki of Los Altos Hills, Calif. The bride's father is a retired Bay Area real estate investor and the bride's mother is a former Spanish and Japanese teacher.

The groom is a math teacher and grade team lead at the Uncommon Charter High School, a public school in Brooklyn, N.Y. He is a graduate of Stanford University. He worked as an engineer at Johnson & Johnson until joining the Obama 2008 presidential campaign in Indiana, which inspired his entrance into the field of education.

He is the son of Richard W. Tsien and Julia Shiang of New York City. The groom's father is the director of the Neuroscience Institute at the Langone Medical Center at New York University. His mother is an associate professor of applied psychology, also at New York University.

The couple currently resides in New York City.
