The Couple: Jann & Yolanda
Chapter 1 of Their Love Story: We met each other at work, his best friend introduced us to each other and there was an immediate connection but we only crossed paths a few weeks (I was covering for a maternity leave and then left the company). At that time, I was also living in another city. Two years later, I moved back to Geneva and bumped into him in a club… We never left each other again.
Wedding Proposal: Jann proposed at the Top of the Rock in New York City. It was my first trip to NY and it has always been a dream of mine to go there. It was truly magical.
Team Bride: My 5 bridesmaids were all old BFFs I grew up with and my sister.
Team Groom: Jann had 5 groomsmen and they were all also best friends since forever.
Wedding Venue: Islington Town hall
Wedding Vibe: Cocktail
Memorable Moment: Our wedding was an amazing day where time stopped. We never pictured our wedding day to be like this because it was planned “last minute”. We were supposed to get married a few months later – first at the Town Hall late April and then having our “big wedding party” mid-May. However, the day we were supposed to send all the invites, I discovered I was pregnant and that the baby was due at the end of May… We had not planned for this at all! We had to put everything on hold until the pregnancy was “confirmed” our guests kept on asking what was happening with the invites..! Long story short, after the 1 trimester we could finally tell everyone and decided to postpone our big wedding. But we still wanted to get married so our child will have the same name as both of us. This is why we got married in January – I was 6 months pregnant and the full journey was definitely the most memorable.
