It was love at first sight that brought Jen and Chike together, leading them to becoming each other’s soulmates.Chike proposed to Jen while on a weekend getaway in Seattle, Washington. Jen recalls, “We drove to an old dock that went out over the water. The sun was setting and the water was like glass. It was beautiful. He proposed right there on the dock.”

These two lovebirds returned to Chike’s native land, Trinidad and Tobago, to tie the knot on May 30th 2009. The beautiful wedding was held at the Stonehaven Villas, Tobago in front of their close family and friends.

Jen wore a Sally Crew dress from La Belle Elaine’s while Chike sported a black DKNY suit and white tie. This fairly traditional wedding featured soca and calypso music as well as a Michael Jackson medley dance performance by one of their friends at the reception. The couple chose their favourite colour red for the wedding incorporating it into the flowers, bridesmaid’s sashes and groomsmen ties.

The couple and their mothers worked together to plan the nuptials. Jen suggests, “If you’re not using a coordinator, keep everything organized with checklists.You can find good ones both on websites and in books.Ask a lot of questions when you’re speaking with the venue staff to ensure you have all of the details squared away.Remember that even if a few things are forgotten or go wrong, your guests usually won’t notice and will remember all of the good things.As long as you & your guests can relax and have a good time, that’s all that matters!“

After their fabulous wedding they honeymooned in the Greek Islands.
