Colombia meets Russia, falls in love and lives happily ever after 🙂 What a dream come true. Well, it’s Roman and Luisa’s dream come true… these two truly beautiful people tied the knot earlier this month at a lovely ceremony at St Kilda Botanical Gardens. While the sun couldn’t decide whether or not it would share the day with us, the love, warmth and happiness exuding from every single person at this intimate wedding more than made up for the chill in the air.
Roman and Luisa met a few years ago when Roman worked in the Real Estate industry and was showing Luisa an apartment she wanted to rent. She didn’t take the apartment, but she did accept his request for a date and the rest, as they say, is history.
Luisa has been good for Roman. In fact, she has been great for Roman and has kicked him into shape and has shown him the healthier side of life. It so great seeing him so happy, vibrant and full of life… (Roman also happens to be my husband’s cousin, which is why my little Mia was a flower girl at their wedding).
Luisa – well Luisa is just stunning. And her beauty isn’t just skin deep – she is truly genuine and beautiful on the inside too. I remember when I first met her, it was a Jewish festival (New Year I think) and Roman had brought her to meet the family. She was amazing and just embraced the culture wholeheartedly… so much so that she even included Jewish elements in her wedding, which was really heartwarming to see. You’re one of the clan now Luisa. Welcome! Have they started nagging you about kids yet?
Roman and Luisa, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
