It was an average day, seemingly like any other, when Elena was pulled over in her car for an expired tag.
Driving away with a warning, neither she nor the officer would have guessed they had just met the love of their lives. The wheels of fate were set in motion that day and a year later their paths would cross again, this time at a house party through Elena’s cousin. That evening the first pages of their love story were written, and so began their path towards together forever.
Over time they became inseparable, sharing the parental love of a son. There was no questioning that they were meant to be. In Elena’s words, “we make each other laugh, we have fun, we are each other’s best friend.” And so it was, on Mother’s Day of 2018, when Stanley took their relationship to the next level, asking Elena, the love of his life if she would honor him by being his wife.
Elena and Stanley’s elegant luxury wedding took place in beautiful Coral Gables, Florida at the historic Hotel Colonnade. The couple incorporated Haitian culture in the music and signature drinks, honoring ancestral heritage during an unforgettable reception in a neoclassical, marble-tiled rotunda. Elena was gorgeous in a timeless lace gown, lighting up the aisle as her handsome groom in classic navy blue awaited his bride-to-be. Surrounded by the love of family and friends, they were forever pronounced husband and wife.
