from the bride… Zack and I had a very unconventional meeting. We both had some mutual acquaintances on Facebook and happened to run into each other’s profile a lot. One day I decided to request him as a friend, later he wrote me a message and it’s like we instantly clicked.  It felt like we had known each other for years. Only one problem, he lived in France at the moment due to his job. We talked for hours every day for a few months.claudette-montero-destination-international-photography-photographer-destination-W-retreat-vieques-island-spa-wedding-photographer-zack-wright-jeniffer-daleccio-caribbean-beach-allure-express-front-luminous-tropical-claudette-montero-destination-international-photography-photographer-destination-W-retreat-vieques-island-spa-wedding-photographer-zack-wright-jeniffer-daleccio-caribbean-beach-allure-express-front-luminous-tropical-0148claudette-montero-destination-international-photography-photographer-destination-W-retreat-vieques-island-spa-wedding-photographer-zack-wright-jeniffer-daleccio-caribbean-beach-allure-express-front-luminous-tropical-0122claudette-montero-destination-international-photography-photographer-destination-W-retreat-vieques-island-spa-wedding-photographer-zack-wright-jeniffer-daleccio-caribbean-beach-allure-express-front-luminous-tropical-0290
We knew we wanted to meet in person and we didn’t want to wait almost a year until his next return to the states to meet. So we decided I would fly to France to meet him in person. Yes I know it was such a crazy idea, for me to fly half way across the world to meet somebody who I had only known through calls, skype, and email. Naturally we were both nervous but luckily when we did meet the connection was there just like it had been for the past few months via phone and emails. At the end of the trip we spent a day in Paris. He walked the whole city sightseeing with me, doing everything I wanted to do without complaining even tho I knew that sightseeing wasn’t his thing. It was so romantic. Paris is truly the city of love and I can say I fell deeply in love with my now husband during that trip. A few months later I moved to France with him and ever since then we’ve been living in a different country every year from Greece to Croatia to Russia and now Germany, due to his job.

We travel the world together as a family. Needless to say we live an unconventional life just like our meeting. When planning our wedding we knew from the start we wanted a destination wedding, but being that we live overseas due to my husbands job we wanted it to have a feel of home. I am originally from Puerto Rico so the thought of getting married there was always a dream for me. I also seen this as the perfect opportunity to show my husbands side of the family my culture and have them experience it first hand. I wanted our wedding to feel like we were vacationing in a secluded tropical island, no big city near by, just the ocean, palm trees and some good Puerto Rican food and music. When I seen the W Retreat & Spa Vieques online I instantly fell in love.

It was the most beautiful and perfect location I had seen. We were in Russia the whole time we planned the wedding so we depended heavily on the W and all the vendors. We had to put a lot of trust into them and I’m so happy they all did such an amazing job. We wanted the whole week to be a big family vacation full of fun, laughter, adventure and new experiences. We started the week off on the main island of Puerto Rico doing some touristic things, Old San Juan, beaches, the rainforest and introducing our guest to Puerto Rican food and music. Then we took the ferry over to Vieques where we had more beach time and we explored the bioluminescent bay.

We asked our guest to dress in white and if they could, in linen to keep with the whole island vacation feel. My ceremony was bilingual with my parts being in Spanish and my husbands in English. Most of the food served was typical of Puerto Rico and I had the DJ play mostly Latin music for the night. For the favors I had straw fans which my mother attached different pictures of my husband, son and myself to.

I also had handmade maracas made with our wedding date and location written on them. My mother also made the table numbers by hand.
