Love at First Sight
While out visiting a client, Sergio looked down at his phone to send a text. The next thing he knew, a pair of beautiful black pumps walked right into his life. “I looked up and could not help but be completely taken by Andrea’s beauty,” remembers Sergio. “I never knew what people meant by love at first sight until that moment.” He introduced himself to Andrea and the rest, as they say, is history.
On their wedding day, the couple chose not to see each other until the ceremony, and the anticipation was palpable before the big moment. Andrea peeked from the bridal suite down to the gorgeous tented area hoping to catch a glimpse of her groom. Sergio says, “Little did she know, I was doing the same.”
Finally, that big moment came. As Andrea walked down the aisle, a tear came to Sergio’s eye. “When I saw Sergio standing at the altar, I knew I had made the right choice,” says Andrea. “It was the best day ever.”
After the ceremony, the wedding party enjoyed a fun-filled photo session before entering the reception. The transparent tent was decorated with beautiful hanging lights, gold chairs, and rustically chic décor.
“We had guests coming from all different parts of the world – Germany, Columbia, Mexico, and many parts of the U.S.,” explains Andrea. “Sharing this day with family and friends we hadn’t seen in years was so amazing, I can’t even put it into words.” The couple melded their Columbian and Mexican traditions together to create a unique and unforgettable experience for everyone.
