Anastasiya & Christopher’s wedding
The story of Christopher and Anastasiya:
“Back in 2008, we met on the Couchsurfing forum! Denver used to have a very vibrant and friendly community of Couchsurfers. I logged onto the forum to ask questions about the city and its neighborhood while I was looking for a place to rent, and Christopher reached out to me with a welcome message.
At the time, my cousin and I were coming to the USA for the first time to spend a few summer months. Christopher was kind enough to pick us up from the airport on a hot summer day, and this is where our story started.
Rainy days are made for lovers and sweet gestures: in the day Christopher proposed, a train was taking us away from Oslo through the moss covered tunnels of Norwegian mountains, down to the boat across the fjords waters and into the valley of Voss. We finished our trip with a fabulous dinner in the heart of Bergen, and walked the empty cobblestone streets back to our hotel, hiding under a single umbrella while it was pouring cats and dogs. Back in our room, we played the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, talked about life and listened to the sound of rain and waves. It was a moment of life where everything just seemed perfectly peaceful and happy. Christopher took my face in his hands, looked into my eyes and then went down on his knee and proposed!”
