Congratulations Aviva and Xavier!


Hi Katherine and Everton,

Xavier and I want to thank you for helping to make our special day so memorable! The chapel looked beautiful and everything went off without a hitch. The Web cast was truly the icing on the cake! Our family and friends from France were able to watch the ceremony live and felt like they were with us. Thank you so much for installing it – it really meant a lot to us knowing that our loved ones were watching. Everyone in attendance loved the TWC. So simple and elegant.

I’m attaching a photo of Xavier and me from 1988. We will be sure to send you pictures from the reception in Paris in June.

As for our story: Xavier and I met Sept. 22, 1987 in an elementary school in Paris, France, when I moved to France with my family. Xavier and I became good friends and I knew he had a crush on me. My family moved back to Canada, after a year and a half, in 1988. Xavier would send me love letters – some of which I still have. We lost touch, but I often thought of him and wondered what he was up to. I found Xavier on the internet through a mutual friend in 2002, and we e-mailed once in a while. I was so happy when I found my friend again nearly 20 years later. We saw each other again for the first time in 17 years later Dec. 27, 2006 in Paris while I was visiting my family. I never expected we would fall in love. After two years of long-distance, Xavier moved to Canada in October 2008.

Thanks again for everything! It was a wonderful day!

Aviva & Xavier
