Us in Stockholm archipelago
We met through mutual friends at a get together at the Broome Street Bar. By the end of the night, we were both smitten with each other, and we definitely wanted to see each other again. We had our first date at Balaboosta, five days after we first met. And even before dessert, we had already started making plans for our second date. This was the start of a beautiful relationship.
We got engaged on the northern hemisphere summer solstice of 2014, June 21st. On that chilly evening, we went on a walk on Östra Stranden beach in Halmstad, Sweden. We'd been sitting on a small bench on a sand dune overlooking the ocean when Lars got on one knee and asked Sue to marry him. She said yes!

Some of you may be wondering why this we've named this site fylke.nu and not sueandlarsgreatawesome-supercoolspectacularwedding.nu, even though the latter was not yet taken. We've decided to change our surnames to Fylke after the wedding, and we will become Suzen Fylke and Jarl Lars Magnus Fylke.
Fylke is Lars Magnus' mother's family name. The name is rare and we would like it to live on. It is also an easier name to deal with in English speaking countries since it does not contain any "special characters" such as å, ä, or ö as Lång does. Additionally, it's a pretty name, it sounds great, and we both really like it!
