French-Chinese CERNist Wedding at Lake Annecy

Sometimes, one incredible opportunity leads to the next mind-boggling one. When I hosted a photography workshop at CERN in Geneva back in June 2017, Adrien – a physicist at CERN and an enthusiastic photographer himself – sadly couldn’t make it to the workshop. But as fate willed, he saw my name on the display and had a look at my website, as he and his fiancé Wenjuan, whom he had met at CERN, were in the middle of planning their wedding.

Coincidence. Ha.

Fast forward, June 2018: 100 people from over 25 different countries gathered at the shoreline of Lac d’Annecy to celebrate the wedding of Adrien and Wenjuan. It was the most beautiful display of border-crossing, globe-spanning love and friendship, and I think this is exactly the kind of story we need to hear and see more often these times.

Thank you, Wenjuan & Adrien!

“A group picture with everybody has has worked at CERN before” – as you can see by my maniac smile, it was one of the proudest moments in my life to be included there.
