Jorge and I met at the beginning of COVID. During that time it was especially difficult to start dating anyone, so like many people our age we turned to dating apps. The one in particular that we both got on was Hinge – you may have heard of it (it’s the app that’s meant to be deleted). Well, we both went on our first Hinge date and did actually delete the app right after! It was our first and only date off of Hinge, so it felt like it was meant to be. It didn’t take us long to realize that we both wanted to get married.
The proposal was very sweet and well planned out. We spent the afternoon at the Botanical Gardens in Fort Worth. He told me that we had to see a beautiful secluded garden which is where he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I was filled with so much emotion – I couldn’t tell if I was crying, sweating, or both since it was almost 100 degrees!
Our wedding was such a magical day, everything was perfect. We got married outside underneath beautiful white arches covered in greenery and colorful flowers wrapped around the pillars. To top it off, the sunset was incredible during cocktail hour! When you walked into the reception it was filled with pops of white, green, pink, and orange from all the flowers and greenery on the tables. We danced the night away to a combination of throwback hits and Spanish hits, and then ended the night in a send-off from our friends and family in a 1957 Ford Skyliner. Our wedding day was so special to us because we were able to combine our American and Mexican backgrounds to create a wedding that honored and showcased who we are as a couple to all of the people we love.
