Michelle and Maxime met at Space Camp. She was from Northern Virginia and he was from Strasbourg, France so, of course, there was initially some concern about whether their long distance relationship would work. Now, five years after first falling in love, Michelle and Maxime live in the Washington, DC area, Michelle speaks fluent French, and they are about to enjoy their second wedding in Maxime’s hometown of Strasbourg this weekend. Artemas and I were fortunate enough to be a part of the Virginia celebration, which took place at Le Meridien Hotel in Arlington two weeks ago, and it was absolutely gorgeous. Michelle, Maxime and their families are some of the nicest people I have ever met. I would love to be adopted in to M&M’s lovely family, and I wish I was celebrating with them right now in France. This is a group that is full of joy and that knows how to celebrate. I wish them all the best and a happy, amazing wedding in France this weekend! Félicitations, Michelle et Maxime!
