I can still remember the first time I saw him. Walking down the hall in the dim ambience of the lobby. I was sitting, or standing, not sure which one since I was focusing in on the present. His face, it had this certain light to it. He smiled my way and I immediately became shy. I was flustered and had no idea why on Earth a guy, who I just met, would make me feel this way. My girlfriend, Elizabeth and I went back to our room. Giovanni being a friend of Elizabeth's family Elizabeth asked, "So, what do you think of Giovanni?" "Well, he seems really nice. He's funny." I replied. What Elizabeth didn't know was that I had fallen in love with him but never knew why and how you could fall in love with someone after only knowing them for just one moment. All night I stayed up, eyes wide open lying in bed in our dark room. I had many questions for myself and could not wait until I fell asleep so I could wake up as soon as possible and hang out with Giovanni. Elizabeth and I woke up to a knock on our hotel room door. It was Giovanni, I could hear his voice. "I just woke up!" I thought to myself with excitement and panic. I ran into the bathroom before Elizabeth even let him in. "Good Morning!" he yelled to me in the bathroom. I was in a race against time. I had to hurry up and get ready before he left and went to breakfast. Turns out he wanted to take us out to breakfast at the Golf Grill. We had so much fun that day and it seemed like there was not enough time spent between me and him. My magical weekend was over and my mom and sisters came to pick me up since I was only 15 at the time. Giovanni walked me to the car and he met my mom and sisters. Giovanni called my girlfriend Elizabeth and got my phone number from her. I was sooo excited when my mom said Giovanni was on the phone for me. We spent the next seven years talking on the phone, writing letters to each other, and seeing each other as much as we could. We were so caught up in our own lives that it was so hard to see each other and date each other since we lived in different cities. One day we just decided to catch up and have a fun day together and that day was the day we realized we could not waste any more time apart from each other. I love him and I always will. God has blessed me beautifully throughout my life and I can see what ways He did...and that is Love.

Since we both share the love of traveling, we thought "What could be more romantic than a destination wedding at our favorite vacation spot?" Our wedding will be in Curacao at our favorite resort! We can't wait to share our special day with you in Curacao! It's only a matter of time until I take those first steps down the sanded aisle wearing my elegant white wedding dress looking at Giovanni in his sharp designer tuxedo, and that special moment where we gaze in awe at how amazing and timeless we both look on our beloved day! It seems like forever we have been waiting for each other and the perfect timing. This will be a day to remember and we cannot wait until we say those two little words that mean so much more than some may realize!
