There is something very special about finding your other half who is from the other side of the world. Alison arrived in Grand Rapids, MI from France on the 1st of May 2018, and we met online only a few weeks later. After many intense conversations getting to know each other and discovering we had so much in common, we met in-person. It felt like we had known each other forever. We grew up more than 4,000 miles away from one another, yet we share the same perspectives of the world, the same values, goals, tastes for music and food, and even the same sense of humor. Together for the past 3 years, we've discovered a life of adventures and challenges, from traveling across the United States and France, through living together, with our two cats and two dogs, a beautiful engagement weekend on Mackinac Island, to our magical garden wedding on July 29, 2019 ... Choosing to spend your entire life with someone from a different country isn't usually one's first thought. But for us, nothing could have been more natural. This is why we will be very grateful if you will join us to celebrate our story & love on our Wedding Day on Saturday May 21, 2022.
