Bret and I got engaged in April, in Spain! It was perfection, as is everything with Bret!


Did you know?

  • Bret and I met online, on
  • We were neighbors for quite some time, I lived in North Arlington, close to his parent’s house!
  • We were both at NYU at the same time, at the same school: Tisch and have never seen each other!
  • We are both former journalists with an insane love for the news!
  • I lived in Kearny, NJ when we met, the city where Bret was born!
  • I did not believe all these coincidences and thought Bret was a huge liar!
  • Our first date lasted 8 hours! It was a dream!
  • We moved to Denver after only one year together!
  • I had never cooked before moving to Denver with Bret!
  • He is an 80 year old man in a 35 year old body!
  • Sometimes he is an 15 year old boy on a 35 year old body!
  • I’m just a 10 year old boy! I love boobs’ jokes!
  • Our company: Move 2 Denver is already 3 years old!
  • We hope to honeymoon at the Almafi Coast and French countryside. We will be going on our honeymoon in November/December to the Florida Keys, Mexico and Turks & Caicos.
  • Bret is more Brazilian than I’ll ever be!




Hi! I’m Vanessa Mael. No. I’ll not change my name. Again. I’ll continue to be Vanessa Mael.

I’m originally from Brazil. Although, when anyone asks, I always answer: “I’m from Kearny, NJ!”. People are always confused, because I have an accent and it’s not a North Jersey accent! Needless to say, I love fucking with people. Also needless to say, most people don’t appreciate that! I’m always in favor of a good joke, even if it costs me a friend! I love comedy. Sometimes my humor is extremely dark! I’m in love with pretty! Anything pretty makes me daydream! I also live to create. Creating things makes my world move!

I never EVER thought I would get married until I met Bret and he stole my heart, my sanity, my everything. He shook me to the core and turned everything upside down! He has given me more than I have ever dreamed before! I wake up happy and grateful for him every single morning!
