COVID-19

Due to the constant changes with COVID-19, we have decided to limit the number of in person guests to the bridal party and immediate family members. This decision was made due to having medically fragile family members and the hope to decrease the spread of this contagious disease. Our hearts are heavy that we will not be able to have a large celebration in person but want to offer our guests to participate in a virtual wedding (never thought we'd say that!). The bride and groom would like to spend 1:1 time with those who attended the virtual ceremony, if you are interested in this - please reach out to the bride at 515-313-5179. Thank you for understanding the choice that we have made. We know that God works in very mysterious ways and we have chosen to lean into him during this time, trust his timing, and continue to choose joy each day. Nothing can stop love. All of our love, The future Mr. & Mrs. Moreno

How It All Started

After working together for about 6 months, Gabriel had asked Elizabeth to hang out with him one weekend. Elizabeth figured that it was just as friends, but Gabriel had something else in mind. After spending the night downtown with some friends, Gabriel told Elizabeth that he had a big crush on her. Elizabeth was shocked that he had these feelings but figured what harm could it do to try and get to know Gabriel more. Ever since that night, we have been inseparable, spending every chance we had to get to know each other and each other's families.

The Proposal

One weekend, over the summer we went to the Ozarks with Gabriel's family to visit his grandparents. Gabriel's family had tricked Elizabeth into thinking that they were taking family photos. After taking some group pictures, Gabriel ran upstairs to get Carti (the pug) to complete our individual family pictures. As we had begun to pose for the picture, Gabriel got down onto one knee, took the ring off of Carti's life jacket, and asked Elizabeth to spend the rest of her life with him. Surrounded by some of the people we love most - Elizabeth was able to say "Yes!" to forever.

Wedding Day Details

We want you to be able to relax and have fun with us today! This in mind, we invite you to put down all your favorite devices and just be present in the moment with us. Please leave your camera in your bag (we've got photography covered!), and put your cell phone on mute (we promise they'll call back!). We're happy to share our professional wedding photos later, but the greatest gift you can give us today is just being fully here with us in this sacred and special moment. At the reception, please feel free to take as many photos & utilize the hashtag #TheMorenoTheMerrier .
