We met on an Island, Hvar, in Croatia in summer 2009. It was a whirlwind romance for 5 days, followed by meeting up in Norway 5 days later for several days, then Vienna 2 weeks later for 3 days before Gisle whisked me off for a weekend in Spain.... 21 days later I moved in to his apartment in Oslo! The momentum in the beginning clearly slowed as 6 years later he proposed! We enjoy living in Oslo but very much look forward to getting married in the brides home town, Washington, DC. We are honored to get married at the Cathedral which holds a special place in the brides heart after attending National Cathedral School for 9 years. We are looking forward to see how the Norwegian guests respond to the American dance floor at the reception!
