XOXO by The Knot
Shireen & Matheus Botura
Shireen Gorgin Botura and Matheus "Matt" Botura married on May 11, 2017 in a small town on the shores of Lake Garda, Italy. These college sweethearts immediately hit it off after meeting at their campus library where they were both "studying" for final exams. Shortly after meeting, Shireen left to study abroad in Austria, but no distance could keep the two apart. Bonded by a love for travel, new cultures and adventure, the duo spent the next seven years exploring the world together including two years of navigating post-grad life working and living in China. After getting engaged these travel lovers wanted to share their love of new cultures with their friends and family at a destination wedding hosted in Italy, not knowing they'd soon call the country their home. Their wedding fully celebrated the culture and customs of their Italian host city. On today’s episode, Shireen and Matt connect with us from their new home in Milan, Italy to share the challenges and excitement of planning a destination wedding, living and working abroad, and tips for navigating marriage around the globe. This is their story.
