How They Met
We met through a mutual friend and instantly became friends. Rodrigo had just returned from Iraq and was stationed at Fort Hood. He would come home every weekend and we would hang out all the time. We later found out that we had gone to high school together and actually had three classes together!
We had a mix of English and Spanish speakers at our wedding so our first dance was a Bachata song that has both languages in it. So when the song started we did a simple sway to the English words and when the Spanish part came on we went into the Bachata movements and everyone loved it!
“As long as you and your spouse have fun, that is all that matters! Make your event the way that you want it to be!”
