How did the two of you meet?

Even though we pretty much grew up as little children in the same church, it wasn’t till secondary school days that we got to know each other through a common group of friends. What sealed the “deal” for both of us was that we shared a strong conviction about faith, life, and love.

What was the proposal like?

Germaine: Very genuine – It was just both of us and Mitchell prepared flowers, candles, photographs of our journey and a heartfelt letter.

What was the theme of your wedding, and how did you create it?

What was your wedding day like?

Our wedding day was truly meaningful because we were able to express our love for each other as well as our convictions about life and love in the midst of those closest to us – some of our guests specially flew in from around the world just to spend the day with us! It was also special because of the love and dedication put in from many of our friends who sacrificed many late nights to help us with the planning and decoration. Everything just came together beautifully, beyond what we could ever imagine and we are simply thankful for that.
