My most vivid memory of Maria Paz and Gonzalo’s wedding was seeing the groom’s face light up as he saw his bride walking down the aisle toward him. I thought to myself, “He looks like a little kid on Christmas Eve, waiting to open his gifts from Santa…”
And that joy was present throughout the entire day. That illuminated smile never left Gonzalo’s face, he couldn’t stop grabbing Maria Paz, hugging her, kissing her, spinning her around on the dance floor. There was something so pure about their excitement for one another — this day wasn’t about the huge event and being the center of attention — it was about their love and their commitment to each other and celebrating with the important people in their lives.
I felt exceptionally blessed to be a part of this beautiful wedding…and even more so because it was filled with familiar faces…two past couples, the present couple and one future couple! Hugs all over the place from parents, brothers, sisters, friends. One big happy group, it’s like the world’s most giantest extended family ever. In fact, that’s how MariaPaz met Gonzalo — he is her friend Ceci’s brother. I love their story. I love this day. I love them. <3 The end <3
