Classic White and Crystal Wedding In Gabon
Mélissa & Amael
The beautiful couple set sights on each other when they met in church at a tender age of 14 but lost contact and found each other again after more than 10years while both studying at Lille. They sought each other out and secretly pinned for one another, though both were reluctant to admit how they felt about each other and kept playing the game for about a year, before finally realizing how much in love they were with another and how they wanted to be together for eternity.
In August 2016, Amael proposed during a weekend under such unexpected and romantic settings at “La Pointe Denis”, a small island located minutes away from the shores of Libreville. Mélissa had no idea what he had planned until he knelt down on the beach in such an idyllic setting and popped the question. “It was the most beautiful day in my life and I will…. forever hold the memory dear”.
The civil ceremony and cocktail party was held at the Nomad Hotel, followed by an evening reception at the Radisson Blu Hotel. The décor theme was white and crystal to give that simple yet chic look that the couple wanted. Guests sat down for a lavish buffet dinner and a night of entertainment.
The entire event was planned and coordinated by Mélissa with great support from her mother and two sisters, who were nothing but amazing during the entire journey.
“Walking down the aisle towards the man of my dreams knowing we would be together forever, created a mix of emotions for me; excitement, gratitude as well as a hint of nervousness for what lay ahead of us in the future, building and sharing our love and lives together.” The Bride’s most memorable moment was when her husband pronounced his vows to her during the civil ceremony. He truly spoke from his heart and she was deeply touched.
