Diana & Francisco
Love Never Fails
Diana and Francisco’s love story began in high school. A few years into their relationship, their love grew even stronger after having a brave, beautiful daughter who was born with a heart defect. Their angel baby passed away as an infant and together, Diana and Francisco learned to rely on each other for strength and comfort. The loving couple endured and were later blessed with a second beautiful daughter. She was a very special part of their wedding day, along with the memory of their angel baby.
Diana and Francisco’s Mexican heritage was reflected in many of the details. Throughout their Big Day they served specialty drinks, danced the “baile de la culebra” (a special cultural wedding dance) and even featured a Mariachi band. Their wedding color palette also held significance as their last name translates into ‘purple’ in Spanish.
Before their guests came into the reception, Diana and Francisco had a quiet moment together to walk through their decorated celebration. This was one of their favorite moments of their wedding day. Another highlight was when their daughter ran up to them and started clapping while they were enjoying their first dance.
