A Picture Perfect Love Story with @elizabeth_wisdom and @Denislafargue

For more photos from Elizabeth and Denis’s wedding as it unfolds, follow @elizabeth_wisdom and @denislafargue on Instagram.

What started with small conversations through Instagram photo comments, became a fairy-tale love story for Elizabeth Wisdom (@elizabeth_wisdom) and Denis Lafargue (@denislafargue). After months of texting and eventually speaking on the phone, Elizabeth finally drove from Mineola, Texas to visit Denis in New Orleans, Louisiana. “I had seven hours to think about the fact that I was about to stay with the family of a man I had never met in person,” Elizabeth recalls of the nerve-wracking trip. But all fear vanished when they finally met. “Within moments of being together we both secretly knew that we were meant to be together,” Denis remembers, and in less than a year he proposed to the woman of his dreams. Denis printed out Instagram pictures from the trips to visit each other and formed a trail on the floor. “The trail of photos led me to the barn where Denis was standing with his guitar. He sang the most beautiful song he had written for this occasion and got down on one knee to propose to me,” Elizabeth recalls the romantic moment.

The couple now counts down the days to October 18 when they will finally tie the knot—and as they go they’re excited to continue sharing their story with the community. “There will be lots of moments shared on Instagram from the wedding day,” Elizabeth says. “I’m thankful for the people who have followed our relationship from the very beginning up to this point.”

Visiting the Vibrant, Colorful Cityscape Of Willemstad, Curaçao

For more vivid landscapes and architecture from the island of Curaçao, explore the Willemstad location page.

One of the first things visitors notice about Willemstad, the capitol of Curaçao, is its brightly colored houses. The Dutch-influenced architecture reflects the colonial history of the tiny island nation, located in the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Venezuela.

“The landscape and the people who live in this city are as diverse as they come,” says Gaby Lieuw (@sandandstilettos), who grew up in Curaçao and currently runs a travel service for tourists to the island. “Many people speak at least four languages fluently—Dutch, English, Spanish and the local language of Papiamento—and switch between them effortlessly throughout the day.”

According to Gaby, large music festivals are a defining feature of Willemstad, ranging from traditional tumba music to Bruno Mars. But one of the most memorable events that takes over the city center is Curaçao Pride, a celebration of LGBT community which runs from September 24 to 28. Visitors flock to Willemstad from all over the world to participate.

“Pride events on the island are getting bigger and better every year,” says Gaby. “Curaçaoans always know how to throw a good party.”

nasze paskudne “gorace” lato sprawia,że człowiek marzy o chwili egzotyki. ale ja nie marze ja tesknie za egipskim sloncem. za wspanialą osoba„ z ktora spedzilam cudowny tydzien. nawet tesknie za zachwycajacym widokiem z samolotowego okienka. za blekitem nieba tam daleko, ktore sprawia ze zycie nabiera inne priorytety…

"Szczęście… otwórz oczy, zapamiętaj widoki.. zapamiętaj kolor słońca i jego ciepło…"
