Carlos met Yessenia on her 14th birthday at a church in Frederick. “Carlos had gotten my phone number from a friend and texted me a happy birthday. After that day, we quickly became friends and would talk almost every single day on the phone. We began dating almost a year later, not knowing that 11 years later we would be getting married on our anniversary.”
120 guests were in attendance for their outdoor May nuptials at Springfield Manor, including six bridesmaids, six groomsmen, two flower girls, and a ring bearer.
“Our wedding ceremony was done only in Spanish. Most of our family and friends speak Spanish and we wanted to make sure that our family could really be part of that special moment. We didn’t want to do anything elaborate or long, the one thing we knew we wanted to do was to write our own vows. Our vows made our guests laugh, cry and every emotion in between.”
The couple wanted a classy and romantic feel to their reception. “We wanted to have flowers on every table and go for almost a garden party feel. The color palette included light purple, gold, white, and green.”
Yessenia is a personnel security specialist & Carlos is an IT coordinator. The couple currently resides in Rockville.
