'Andábamos sin buscarnos, pero sabiendo que andábamos para encontrarnos' - Julio Cortázar
Joandy and Ely celebrated their wedding at the end of August, 2017. It was a celebration of love, commitment and honour. We feel really fortunate to have celebrated both their engagement and wedding with them and their loved ones. Their love story started in the Niagara region many years ago. Ely describes Joandy as being her support during the years; encouraging her forward through both good times and bad. Four years ago, they faced a challenge when Ely's family moved to Windsor, Ontario. They were both unsure of the future; if the distance would keep them together or break them apart. However they worked through the distance with many late nights on the phone and weekends travelling back and forth. In February of this year, Joandy surprised her with getting down on one knee and asking for her hand in marriage. Their love was as strong as ever.
Junilo and I were pretty excited to use our Spanish as both Ely and Joandy's families are Hispanic Canadian. And are there any better dance parties than Latina ones?!! We were sure memorized watching the guests salsa the night away! We vowed to practice our moves before our next chance to salsa!
