in a time long, long ago…okay, maybe not that long ago but exactly 5 years ago to the date…there once was a Princess in Paris…preparing to marry her Prince Charming.
I can’t believe how fast the time has gone but I remember the day perfectly well.
I arrived to our room at the George V in Paris to get ready. I had butterflies in my stomach but for all the right reason..here I was, in the city of love, hours away from marrying the love of my life. And thus my fairy tale was truly beginning…The George V is located just one block from where we had our wedding…at the beautiful American Cathedral in Paris. So when my ladies and I were ready to go, we crossed the street in our gowns and headed to the church. It was definitely a sight to see.In front of 75 close friends and family members, I married Ivo Heuberger…who to this day is my absolute Prince. He is my rock, my confidant, my biggest support and closest friend…and it just goes to show that sometimes you really can have it all.As we left the alter as husband and wife, we had the 12 person choir sing us off with The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love” song…it sounded beautiful and completely appropriate for the way we feel about each other.
Because there’s nothing in the world that can’t be done…all you really need is love (okay, and a little bit of patience, understanding, compassion and dedication).
Our wedding dance was choreographed by the talented Alejandro Bahia from Miami and after weeks of practice, the moment arrived and we were so relieved to have nailed it!
I have the best memories from my wedding…it was a magical day filled with love, friendship, family and happiness…there is not one thing I would change (not even the things I thought didn’t go as planned). It was perfect because it was ours…and five years later, I am reminded of how lucky I am to have found my Prince Charming in Ivo…and we’re definitely on the road to happily ever after.
