It was Memorial Day weekend when Lut and Jean attended the same cookout. Jean was on the grill and was supposed to save Lut some beef ribs, but he didn’t. Instead he got off the grill and sat across from her at the table, but said absolutely nothing. Fast forward a few months later, the two both ended up at the same club celebrating with friends. This time Jean asked Lut for her number and the rest is history! Check out their tropical engagement session captured by Legacy Studios.
Bride: Lut Celestin, 32, Registered Nurse and Senior Application Analyst
Groom: Jean Gardy Theodore, 33, Lead Field Service Engineer
Place of residence: Massachusetts
Engagement Shoot Location: Jamaica
Wedding date: September 4, 2022
Jean’s brother and sister-in-law purchased a new house, and it was his sister-in-law’s birthday. Lut thought that they were having a housewarming/birthday party. Everyone else received another invite that said Lut’s surprise engagement. One thing to know about Jean is that he loves karaoke and at some point during the party his brother started Karaoke night and it was Jean’s turn to sing. He was singing, “Let’s Get Married” and then he proposed!
For the Groom: Walk us through the behind the scenes of creating this special day.
At first, I was very nervous, trying to envision how I would pop the question presented quite the challenge. I thought of something that Lut really loves. What came to mind was karaoke. Back in 2017 we took a trip to Mexico. They had a karaoke night at the resort. I sang Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” and ever since then I was bothered by Lut to do karaoke often. It was only right to perform karaoke at the proposal.
What makes your love special?
