Christine + Matt are a testament to how far one will go for true love. Having met by chance at a conference in London – Matt living in Amsterdam, Christine living in the U.S.- anyone would have thought it was simply a few days of fun flirting. But, as life would have it this is not a story of a simple flirtation to pass the time at a work conference. No. This was meant to last. And it did. After countless Skype chats, text messages, phone calls, and trips to visit each, Christine eventually moved to Amsterdam to be with Matt and they’ve had an amazing adventure there. After a romantic proposal in Venice, Italy, Christine said yes and it was time to start planning the big day. Having family and friends throughout the country, they settled on one of Matt’s favorite cities, Las Vegas (cue Elvis theme song!) Just kidding, the “King” would not be making an appearance at Christine + Matt’s gorgeous Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai Golf Club wedding. There would however be lots of love, happy tears, and big hugs as these two tied the knot and became Mr. and Mrs. surrounded by their family and close friends.
The day started at the Bellagio, where Christine and her sister was getting dolled up by the team of Makeup in the 702 and Matt were getting ready in a separate suite with his brother. We then made our way to the venue for some photos with family and friends before the ceremony. After the ceremony, we took the newlyweds around the gorgeous palm tree filled property of Bali Hai Golf Course for some portraits and they enjoyed some time together before their reception, which was a total blast! After dinner service, the dance floor was soon full of friends and family celebrating a new chapter in Christine + Matt’s love story.
