As any classic teenage rom-com movie would unfold,our story began in highschool.Between classes, volleyball and basketball practices, college tour visits, and winning Junior Class Homecoming court together,we shared many conversations aboutschoolwork, life, college, and our dreams; BUT we were JUST FRIENDS!
Once life brought me to Dallas, a 15-year-longfriendship turned into a proposal on the beautiful desert mountains in El Paso, TX.Despite the pandemic,we made thevery best of2020 and captured our vows on a tripod camera in a completely empty courthouse in October of 2020!
The global pandemic made dreaming of a traditional wedding difficult and out of reach.Itwasn’t until we moved to Waxahachie that we had renewed hope of celebrating our union with our parents and loved ones in attendance.
In under seven months, we planned all wedding details and enlisted family and friends to help us transform our 1920s craftsman bungalow into our dream venue. There were moments when I questioned if we could pull off the copious amounts of landscaping andwedding prep in time. The moment we hit an abandoned gas pipe it really tested our faith;but,in the end,we pulled it off!
The day we had been preparing for was perfect.We received our holy marriage sacramentat St.Joseph’s Catholic Church,strolled through Waxahachie square for our wedding portraits,and were welcomed home by all our closest family and friends. We danced thenight away in the cool autumn air and beneath the elder pecan and oak trees in our backyard.
Planning a wedding, in addition to creating our own venue was no easy feat, but if giventhe opportunity,we would do it all over again! We had many family members and friendshelp us in alot of ways. They moved dirt,put down grass,and planted. You name it…we didit! These were the most special moments of the whole journey. But for us,these were the most special memories of the whole journey. The memories we made transforming our home was a true labor of love anda testament to our devotion and faith.
