We met on my home-island, Guadeloupe, while I was back for holidays and Matthieu was doing an internship. We were at a beach party, I had some friends from France over and Matthieu was with his colleagues. Guadeloupe is such a small island, that I had already noticed their group because I didn’t know who they were and Matthieu was wearing his glasses, with sunglass clip ons flipped on his forehead! A party was taking place the next week end on another island and my friends and I were looking for a ride (on a boat). They came over and talked to us and invited us on their boat for the next week end and thats how it all started.
What made our wedding unique was the mariage of two families from two very different cultures, that, mixed with all of our travels from different parts of the world. Wether it be through the food, decorations, cocktails or music we brought to our wedding a piece of our respective cultures and of each of our travels. Also, we wanted to stick to our traditional cultures but also include our family in our wedding preparation and ceremony. Matthieu’s dad sang the traditional corsican songs during our ceremony, and that was one of the most touching moments for us. A part from that, my favorite part of the wedding would have to be the brunch, because it was a really fun day with 0 stress. And I was able to really spend time with friends and family I hadn’t seen in a long time.
