Monique is the daughter of Amil and Mimo Zacca who have four other children — Wade, Brigette, Robert and Janine (Monique’s twin). The family migrated to Miami in 1976 and although that was 18 years ago, Monique, a quality control manager for F3 Software, wanted to return home to get married.

John Issa is the godfather of the twins.

Charles is the son of Bo and Charlene Mustell from St. Joe, Michigan. They have one other son, Chris. Charlie is a lawyer with the law firm, Kubiki Draper, in Miami.

The couple got married at the Our Lady of Fatima Church in Ocho Rios by officiating priest, Fr. Leo Quinlan.

The bride wore an elegant off-the-shoulder satin wedding dress with a tulle train and matching veil. The groom was suited in the traditional black tuxedo.

The wedding reception on the lawns by the sea had a fairy tale ambience, created by tents strung with scores of pepper lights under which was spread of haute cuisine, including filet mignon, lamb and stuffed snapper. For dessert, there was the traditional wedding cake plus a buffet of 10 different types of dessert.

Guests dined under the stars.

Master of ceremonies was Chief Justice Zacca who had the audience laughing from his humorous toastings. He praised the staff of Sans Souci Lido and especially Joey Issa, general manager, whom he had said was well deserving of “The Young Hotelier of the Year Award”.

The father of the bride told a few jokes in his speech. He advised Monique not to spend too much of her time trying to change Charlie and then complain that he was not the man she married.

Janine Zacca, the bride’s twin, brought tears to everyone’s eyes when she said her few words. She told Charlie that she had no doubts that he would take care of Monique and that maybe now she could stop worrying about her. Janine, to add her “twinly” touch to her sister’s wedding, got engaged on the Sunday morning under a gazebo at Sans Souci Lido.

Wedding celebrations started on Thursday, December 1, when more than 40 rooms of family and friends from Jamaica, San Salvador, the United States and Lebanon arrived at Sans Souci Lido. Charles and Monique Mustell spent the first three days of their honeymoon at Sans Souci Lido then on to Grand Lido for the remainder of the honeymoon.
