>There is nothing like a romance to start our Monday morning, and what a romance John and Christina have had. Just like in a fairytale, the couple knew they were meant for each other the minute they locked eyes.
When John and Christina met, sparks flew. A new fate was written for two people working in Collins Street, Melbourne. John tells how he was completely swept off his feet by Christina’s warmth, happiness and positive energy, “It was truly love at fist sight.”
Six months later, on a warm October afternoon at Elwood Beach lookout, John asked Christina to marry him… she was deleriously happy and even speechless. After that passed, of course she said yes!
They said their vows at St John Catholic Church in Wheelers HIll, Victoria, where 250 of their closest friends and family watched on in excitement.
“Our major highlight of the day was sharing the photo session with Christina’s nonna (grandmother), Lucia at the Assisi Aged Care facility in Rosana. Lucia was unable to make the wedding celebration, so we bought the celebration to her – with wonderful food beautiful weather and plenty of laughter.”
The couple shared with me what the meaning of marriage is to them: “Marriage is the ultimate opportunity to intimately share our passion for life together. We both love learning, supporting people and making our communities better. Travel, music, adventure, entertainment and business – everything is made more magical by having a special companion with whom you communicate with openly and trust unconditionally.”
Such a beautiful way to look at their future together… (sigh).
