Wedding: Erika & Lucia

From Erika: Lucia and I met freshman year of college and have been joined at the hip ever since. We didn’t start dating until six months later but everyone knew us as a unit from day one. Being that Lucia comes form a large Dominican family, I know she and her family dreamed about her wedding day but probably not as a big gay wedding. With a lot of patience, perseverance, and a bit of faith, I finally proposed to her. Her counter proposal came nine months later.

We had originally thought that the only way to keep the wedding guest list manageable would be to have a small and intimate 15 person ceremony. People found out the wedding was being planned and suddenly we had family from both sides fighting and pleading to be a part of our big day. Before we knew it, we were planning a wedding for 175 people. It was an incredibly emotional and intimate ceremony with all our family and friends surrounding us. Our stunning officiant made us feel like we were the only two people in the room and like she was having a conversation with everyone else. My favorite part of the entire evening (besides the getting married part) was getting to watch my wife surrounded by all her aunts, uncles and cousins who were so proud and excited to bear witness to this important event.

Having originally planned on a small wedding, good photos were top of our list. Our amazing photographer captured stunning shots of us which perfectly encapsulated the day. I have been looking at the pictures daily and still can’t believe it all happened. Still get all giggly when I get to introduce people to “my wife.” Brings a smile to my face every time!
