When We Knew

by Mauve and Malik
(Burlington, NJ)


Some of our romantic words and stories came from a road trip to Amish Country Pennsylvania and led us to marriage. We had been dating almost a year and took day trips many weekends. For a week-long vacation, Malik and I decided to scoot off to Amish Country. The relaxed pace and simpler way of life reminded us of where we had grown up on Bermuda and Mozambique. We told each other of childhood friends, tales of hardship, stories of want, and about the apprehension of moving to a new country.

The Amish buggies and farming reminded both of us of childhood. It was one of the best times we have shared together. After that trip we decided to marry.

REVEREND MATTIE COMMENTS: There are so many stories of couples finding each other amid the din of masses in the world. And all over the world once they have found each other they commit to carving out a life shared. Sometimes couples ask for ideas to get them thinking about their nuptials including weddings, gowns, and all manner of unique ideas.

A friend introduced us to Reverend Mattie, and immediately she put us at ease. She makes planning the wedding ceremony a blend of everything that has meaning for us, plus including loved ones, family and friends. If you are lucky enough to have her officiate your legal wedding ceremony you will be soooo pleased!
