The stars were aligned when this Sagittarius and
Cancer began their office romance. Thomas’
compassion, kindness and generosity immediately
won him a spot in Valerie’s heart. As Thomas
crunched numbers, it was her bright smile,
confidence and sense of humour that got him
through the day.
The laughter of her loved ones filled the air at a
BBQ that Valerie was attending during her visit to
Los Angeles. She was pleasantly surprised when
she saw Thomas, who had flown out to the City of
Angels to propose to her.
“It was unexpected, thoughtful, and absolutely
perfect,” Valerie says, reminiscing.
Made in Mexico
Upon the recommendation of their wedding spe-
cialist, Mexico was the picture-perfect choice for
their destination wedding. In November 2013, along
the idyllic shores of Playa Mujeres on the Yucatan
peninsula, a party of 35 gathered to bear witness
to the nuptial of Valerie and Thomas. Serenaded by
an eight-piece Mariachi band against a pink sky,
the couple exchanged their vows of matrimony
as vivid tones of champagne, eggplant, navy and
grey dotted the decor of their special day.
