On August 31, 2019, my high school sweetheart proposed to me at The Pearl in front of each of our families. We met at Crystal City High School in 2011, graduated together in 2012, attended UTSA and graduated with our degrees in 2016, and finally married on our 10th anniversary in 2021 in Spring Branch, TX. What I thought would be an ordinary day at The Pearl turned out to be one of the best days of my life! Just as we were walking past the fountains, Xavier dropped to one knee and proposed to me. Completely taken by surprise (and nervous with all of the people watching), I quickly said YES and turned to find both our families celebrating. What touched me the most was seeing my grandmother there a few months after my grandfather passed. It was a special moment I will never forget. We originally planned for a November Friday the 13th wedding in 2020, however, our fall wedding dreams started to fade as the Coronavirus pandemic began in the new year. As the months went on, we quickly realized a large 2020 wedding was not going to be possible anytime soon, so we decided to postpone into 2021 for the safety of our close friends and family. It was a no-brainier that our new date would be our original anniversary, June 13th! We had to modify almost everything due to the date change, including the venue. As we navigated through our new stressful reality, I had help from some of the best wedding vendors during the postponement. We wanted the new wedding plans to be a breath of fresh air so we switched from darker moodier colors to a brighter palette. I chose blush pink and emerald green for a timeless Spring/Summer look. Elegance and romance were my main inspiration for the wedding day. The waterfall at Remi’s Ridge and beautiful greenery aligned with the vision we had for our wedding day and was actually the first venue we toured as an engaged couple. After a forced postponement during a global pandemic, our wedding turned out to be exactly what we always imagined.
