Destination Wedding in Norway


Lene and Russ’ wedding was not something that just happened. Lene is from Norway and Russ is from America and yet they first met in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2008. Lene was Miss Norway and Russ was there to support his sister who happened to be Miss USA. They both noticed each other back then, kicking off their friendship.

Two years later they met again in New York, where Russ was living at that time. Russ invited Lene to his New Year’s party and she was charmed. That night their interest in each other really sparked and a relationship began; they’ve been been together since that night!

Coming from two different countries is not always easy, and the couple have had to go endure a long distance relationship. While it started as a New York to Norway long distance relationship, they both moved around the world to locations like Singapore and Australia. However, when you meet the love of your life, it doesn’t matter where you come from or how many obstacles you have to go through to be together. No longer doing long distance, their final destination, for now, is Manhattan, New York, where they live together with their lovely dog Maya.
