An International Love Story

Bridesmaid Buenos Aires and her new husband (!!!) have an amazing love story that evolved over three continents.

Here is the beautiful couple on their wedding day:

A few years ago BA decided to move to Argentina for a year to teach English. She had an amazing time there and became friends with many people, including a great guy named R. After the year was up, BA moved back to her hometown of Chicago. A few months later R decided to move to Paris, and he stopped in Chicago to visit BA on the way. It was there that their friendship evolved into something more—they had a wonderful time together, but it was just a few days. Neither BA nor R knew if it would ever be anything more. He was in Paris, she was in Chicago. They kept in touch, but weren’t officially a couple until BA went to visit him in France a couple months later. So when R moved back to Argentina, BA soon followed. About 2 months ago R popped the question with a strawberry ring pop. Just last month BA & R got married at the Buenos Aires courthouse followed by a fabulous celebration at their home. Next year they will have a 2nd reception in Chicago to celebrate with BA’s family and friends.

It breaks my heart that I couldn’t be there at the wedding, so until I can toast the newlyweds at their American reception, I will pour over their glorious photos from the day:

The ceremony:

1st kiss!

Upon leaving the courthouse the newlyweds were showered with rice:

Husband and Wife:

Love this photo!

Intense storms were forecasted for the wedding day, but according to a South American tradition if you stick a knife in the ground, it'll prevent rain. I guess it worked, because they only had sprinkles all day!

The Party & the Details:

Can you believe they planned this whole wedding in just a couple short weeks? BA is a wedding superstar!

The proof that the newly married couple threw a great party? At the end of the night they looked like this:

Woo-hoo! Congratulations BA & R!!!
