Messerschmitt-Bennett engagement

Laura Joanne Messerschmitt and Michael James Bennett (pictured at right) have announced their engagement.

The bride is the daughter of David and Dorothy Messerschmitt of Walnut Creek.

She graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1998 and from Stanford Business School in 2004.

The groom is the son of James and Holly Bennett of Lake Wildwood.

He graduated from Sonoma State University in 2000.

Although they grew up only a few miles apart, the couple did not meet until a mutual friend introduced them on Cinco de Mayo 2006. They went on a group trip to Belize soon after that, and as they say, the rest is history.

The couple will marry on Aug. 16.
