Art lovers among our readers are in for a treat today as this engagement from Dee and Kris Photography is pretty special. Just wait till you see the Chateau de Chantilly venue, the gorgeous galleries and all the sights of the city in this Paris engagement. Sabrina and Alex’s story is a funny one of destination-swapping as well: Alex was born in France and moved to the States to pursue his education, while Sabrina was born in the US and moved to Paris while Alex was in the US! So how did they manage to meet? We’ll turn you over to Sabrina below:
“Alex is from France and I am from Northern California and we met at California State University. I had just returned from a year abroad in Florence and was working for the exchange program. Alex was invited to a surprise birthday party thrown by a friend of a friend. He asked for my number at my birthday party and we started dating soon thereafter. At the end of the school year I was supposed to fly to London for graduate school (I was going to attend Sotheby’s Institute) but he persuaded me to move with him to Paris instead. He helped me submit my resume to the Louvre museum where I was given a wonderful internship. We plan on returning to live in France when finished our studies in the USA.”
While Sabrina was in Florence she worked at the Uffizi Museum, so has worked at two incredibly prestigious art institutes. She was asked to stay an extra year at the Uffizi but she declined in order to finish her studies and graduate back home (despite everyone’s advice to the contrary). Good thing she did though- if she had stayed in Italy she wouldn’t have met Alex. Fate is funny sometimes isn’t it?
A big thank you to Sabrina for sharing her and Alex’s story and we wish them all the best in their future together. Thanks also to Dee and Kris Photography for the wonderful photos. See you tomorrow for our FAB 5!
