Norman + Christie

We are Norman + Christie Yu. We just celebrated 4 years of marriage! As kids growing up in Orlando, our parents became close friends and started the Holy Family Prayer Group at church. We were friends as kids and our parents remain great friends today. As we grew up we went our own ways. Norman ended up in Los Angeles developing his craft in photography and I kept my roots in Orlando after graduating with a B.A. in Hospitality. Norman soon moved back home to Orlando. One spring day, at a mutual friend’s wedding, which Norman was shooting and I was attending, we sat next to each other and decided to meet for dinner to catch up. Catching up was more like really getting to know each other, and that meant closing Dragon Fly Sushi that night and spending every day for the next month together. With a guitarist next to Norman and surrounded by friends and family, he proposed at that same sushi spot! We soon exchanged vows at our church in Winter Park, Florida. We have a boy and 2 girls, a home in Maitland, 3 furry friends, and blessed with the ability to work every day together. I resigned from Hilton Grand Vacation Club to be home with the kids and joined the studio full time in 2016. I overlook more of the business and client experience side while Norman can focus on the art. The best thing about being married: “Being able to spend every day with your best friend for the rest of your life!” - Christie
