The Couple: Ruby & Armando
Wedding Date: September 27, 2014
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We met in 2012 at my brother’s birthday celebration. Armando grew up with my sister-in-law who is my brother’s wife. We instantly hit it off but went our separate ways. We reconnected about 10 months after and we were inseparable. We had a short lived long-distance relationship. I moved in with Armando and he proposed three months after. The proposal was a complete surprise. He made reservations at one of our favorite restaurants and made sure all of our close family and friends were there.
What was the most amazing part of your day? The ceremony. Seeing each other for the first time felt like the first time, again.
What else would you like to share about your big day? What unfolds is a creation of what you both created. So, just enjoy every bit of it!

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Get to bed early the night before! It’s easy to get caught in the moment with family and friends. Do everything you want to do for your big day. There are great up and coming vendors who aren’t as pricey but are just as talented.
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? The day goes by so fast we wish we would’ve booked our videographer until the night ended. Pictures are great but there’s nothing compared to watching a video and getting to relive the moments.
