April 26, 2023 – The couple started spending more time together in Los Angeles in early 2018.

“When you connect at a soulmate level, you naturally talk about marriage,” explains Faur.

We spoke quite a few times about it, starting the summer of 2018, not long after we started dating in early May 2018.”

But Aldrin jokes that he still had to woo Faur before she agreed to say “I do”.

“She has a bit of a stubborn streak, so it then took me several years until she agreed to be my bride, my best beloved,” he says. “But I’m even stubborner than she is. I won!”

Adds Faur: “We both felt deep in our hearts all these years that marrying each other felt right,” Faur said. “That said, we were having such a wonderful courtship we felt no need to rush things.”

Aldrin came up with the idea to have their wedding on his 93rd birthday, which also happened to be the day he was honored at the Living Legends of Aviation 20th Annual Awards gala. “It was what

astronomers call a grand conjunction,’ adds Aldrin. “All the stars were now aligned to marry.”
