Colorful Miami Wedding

Nestor and Ashley Shared some of their story with us and we felt like it was a great introduction to see their beautiful day!

We met at the University of Florida Levin College of Law during orientation week. At the end of orientation week, several people decided to meet up at Chick Fil A. I was already sitting down and eating when Nestor came over to introduce himself. I would not shake his hand because I was eating and did not want to get my hands dirty. So, initially Nestor thought I was a germaphobe and I thought Nestor ate way too many Chick Fil A sauces in one sitting. – Ashley

After a few dates, I wanted to officially make Ashley my girlfriend. I had this elaborate day trip planned where we would go to a historic district in Micanopy, walk around the old homes and go to some of the interesting antique shops, then stop at a local pizzeria everybody raved about, and finally, we’d stop at this observation deck off the highway that was, according to many, a great spot for stargazing and I would ask her to be my girlfriend there. I had a little speaker system to play some romantic music, a bottle of wine and some flowers hidden in my car to make it extra special. Well, we made it to the historic district only to find that all the shops were closed for the day. We walked around a bit before calling it quits and heading to the pizzeria early, which, without my knowledge, she had already eaten at the week before. We made it to the observation deck only to find clouds obscuring the entire sky and not a single star visible. I delayed all my plans until we made it back to town but I couldn’t come up with another romantic idea, I ended up asking her to be my girlfriend on a walk around my neighborhood, my dog in tow, and a bag of poo in my hand. She agreed to be my girlfriend anyways. – Nestor

From the Bride: There was a moment right before the doors to the ceremony opened where I saw my Husband’s face, through the small opening between the doors, and in that moment I was simply overwhelmed with emotion and could not wait to greet him at the altar.
