We are so excited for you to join us as we renew our vows!
We hope you will be able to join us for the ceremony, as well as for some time in Sardinia afterwards.
To make this easier for everyone (us included!) we are providing you with access to our travel agent, Dionne Roberts, who will help you as much (or as little) as you want.
An International Courtship
Chakira and Matteo met at a Muslim wedding in Wood Green, London in June 2005. She was only there for the weekend to attend the wedding!
They dated long distance between London and Detroit for a year - a whirlwind courtship with Matteo romancing Chakira all across Europe and the US (Detroit, Chicago, DC, New York, London, St Tropez, Nice, Cannes, Beusoleil, Monaco, Sardinia). He did a great job, because halfway through the year, she agreed to move to London if she could find a job there. Well, of course she found a job (with a London law firm) and Chakira moved to London in September 2006.
In November 2007 they traveled to the Cayman Islands vacation, which is when and where Matteo proposed. He wanted a very short engagement!
They got married in Houston on March 2, 2008 and continued living in London.
The twins were born October 6, 2009. After they were born, they relocated the family back to Texas (Austin), and subsequently moved to San Antonio in May 2013.
Whew! Now that's a busy 10 years!
