Viajamos até Paris, a cidade do amor, e percebemos porque é que é a cidade da luz. As ruas têm um aluz muito suave e para nós qualquer recanto é fotogénico.
No dia anterior, passeámos pelas ruas de Paris, fomos até ao Louvre e ainda ajudamos a escolher o local da cerimónia.
A Jessica & o Nathan são um casal poderoso na política americana. São também o exemplo da mistura da cultura americana em Los Angeles. Eles conheceram-se na campanha presidencial do Obama em 2008 e perderam-se de amores um pelo outro. Sendo de culturas diferentes tiveram de ultrapassar alguns obstáculos juntos. Eles queriam que o seu casamento fosse puro, sem política nem equívocos. Por isso fugiram para Paris para casar.
We met while working on President Obama’s reelection campaign in northeastern Ohio. I still remember the moment we met–I pulled up on my way to a meeting, listening to “Till There Was You” by The Beatles (which turns out to be Jessica’s favorite band). As fate would have it, I parked next to Jessica. We were then introduced and started dating a few weeks later. At the time, I had already accepted an offer to begin law school in my home state of Oklahoma and soon had to move back.
We dated long distance for about 6 months. After the distance became too much, I submitted an application to the University of Southern California so I could transfer law schools and move to Los Angeles (where Jessica is from). Jessica even joined me in Oklahoma for a few months as a I finished my first year of law school.
I asked Jessica to marry me 3 years ago in front of the Trevi Fountain in Rome. We took our engagement photos in Paris and fell in love with its timeless beauty, classic architecture, grand boulevards and charming cafes. After a few years of trying to save and plan for a wedding, we finally decided to elope in the City of Lights.
We still love politics–I work as a political and election lawyer. Jessica also works with campaigns and nonprofit civic organizations and is applying to law school. We live in downtown Los Angeles.
I write you this so that you can get to know us a little better. We can’t wait for this special day and are excited that you will be capturing these moments with us.
