JEA + JUSTIN IN THE THALIA

HOW DID YOU TWO MEET? 

We met 16 years ago at church at a musical project, where I was a musical singer and he was the drummer. We were both 14.

WHEN DID YOU KNOW HE WAS THE ONE? 

Justin knew it directly at the age of 14, I needed a little longer. But now we’ve known each other for longer than half our lives, this is why we’re soulmates…

 WHO PROPOSED AND HOW DID IT GO DOWN?

It was the day I came back from tour, we didn’t see each other for 5 weeks. He was driving around and told me to close my eyes. He stopped the car and I heard a click, it was of a CD. And then I listened to a song he wrote just for me and this time he didn’t play instruments, he just sang. I never heard him sing before. It was so perfect and the main phrase was “Please say yes”. I felt like I was in a movie. After I opened my eyes he looked at me crying and had this cute opened box with my engagement ring in it. Which was so beautiful, by the way. I said yes and we went into a luxury restaurant right by where we were parked. Nine months later we got married in a big, cool celebration with 100 guests. Four years later we wanted to renew our vows, just the two of us, alone. So we decided to travel to Morocco with @octaviaplusklaus and it was the best decision ever. We said everything we would never say in front of all our family and friends. We cried, we laughed and are still (3 months later) endlessly blessed.

TELL US THE STORY OF HOW YOU FELL IN LOVE WITH YOUR GBN DRESS.

 
Actually, I went to IamYours with OctaviaandKlaus. When we saw the dress, they knew it directly. I wasn’t sure in the beginning, but when I wore it in the Sahara Desert, I literally felt like a goddess!

Intimate Moroccan elopement with an oriental flair and dark red, gold and grey color palette.

ON YOUR WEDDING DAY, WHAT WAS THE MOMENT THAT MADE YOU CRY THE MOST? AND WHAT MADE YOU LAUGH THE MOST?

 
This time (in contrast to our first wedding in Germany) I started with my speech. And I knew I would stay cool until I was finished. But when it was Justin’s turn I couldn’t stop crying at the end of his vows. Of course, he cried before during mine, but this was such a special moment. It was very windy, but we didn’t feel the wind, just our goosebumps, we even forgot OcatviaplusKlaus.

ANY ADVICE FOR OUR FUTURE BRIDES?

 
Enjoy everything on your big day and later, think of it as often as you can.
