We met and spoke for the first time at a church service during the summer of our freshman and junior year. We connected afterwards and spoke of the separate instances we had seen each other before. A week later, we were on the phone...that’s pretty much when we thought, "Okay. This could be something."
After four and half years of courtship, we dreamed of a life and a future together. It was a beautiful evening on the Potomac River, enjoying a "Spirit of Washington" dinner cruise. Overlooking the water, he got down one knee and with a ring in his hand, he asked me to marry him...without hesitation I said "YES," and we were engaged! We're so excited to celebrate this marriage milestone in our lives with you!
We were married on a sunny summer day...surrounded by our friends and family, our lives were joined before the Lord in a beautiful ceremony officiated by our Pastor, Hugo Artiga. Maranatha Church Greenbelt, Maryland. We became parents three years later...we have been blessed with three precious promises: Emilio, Melina and Elijah!
