Weddings are such amazing days for so many reasons. The love of two people, the joining of two families, friends standing up to support two people promising to love each other forever. This wedding was especially unique in that the groom had never met the bride’s family before and the bride hadn’t seen them in over three years. Gabi is from Brazil and moved to the US with her younger sister as a foreign exchange student in High School. Gabi is brilliant and as beautiful of a person as it gets. When she met Michael at work, it was instant and they knew they would marry. Gabi is currently living in Chicago as she completed med school and Mike still lives in St. Louis. My husband and I did long distance for awhile in college and it is difficult but if anyone can survive the miles, it’s them. I knew it would be a fun wedding because of the date…12.31.11…yep…New Year’s Eve. They were ready to celebrate their wedding and ring in the new year as a married couple with their wonderful family and friends!
Gabi and Mike,
Thanks for helping me end my 2011 wedding season with an amazing group of people. It was such an honor to have me tell your beautiful love story.
