WHAT an introductory story these two have!! While vacationing in Barbados for a milestone anniversary, her parents met Mario. (Her mother found this amazing resort in one of those amazing travel magazines we all read…and fantasize about Mario was a super sweet guy, from Italy, who worked at the resort, and they liked him immediately. Their daughter…. just hadn’t found the right person (yet). And…at some point…her mother causally said something to Mario like, “I wish my daughter could meet someone like you.” They continued to enjoy their vacation and returned home.
One day their daughter, Alyssa, got a message via LinkIn from someone from Sandy Lane Resort in Barbados. She was skeptical about returning the message. After recalling her parents vacationed there…she finally returned the message. And they started talking. And talking. And talking. And finally met months later.
And….I got to photograph their day!! How amazing two people from such different places/worlds got to meet and be together!! And just as her father said in his toast….it’s not often the Groom has approval from the brides parents *before* they even meet. Pretty amazing!!!!
