Maik & Grit are from Germany and they traveled around the world in 2017. They departed on their round-the-world trip in May and decided that Moorea would be the perfect place to celebrate their 18th anniversary of being together – to the day – on October 3rd, and to get married.
They wanted a ceremony of a Western-style on a quiet beach in Moorea.
Maik & Grit met in school as they both were in Erkner for 2 weeks of intensive learning. It simply started with a walk around the lake, and on October 3rd, 1999, the two of them went on a first official date in Grit’s hometown of Leipzig. They first had dinner together and then went to the cinema and watched the movie “Notting Hill”… they kissed for the first time. They fell for each other on that very first date, some 18 years ago.
Maik & Grit traveled light – they were on a 7-month trip through the Caribbean, South America, the South Pacific and Australia – so Grit wore a short dress with some gold sequins at the top to match her gold jewelry, she sported a veil and Maik was dressed in a dark suit with a yellow tie, his favorite color!
It was a windy day but they had fun nonetheless and captured this beautiful day on video.
Thank you Maik & Grit for trusting us with your special day and we wish you to keep holding hands every day, in good health and in great love like you did for the past 18 years!
