How They Met
Araceli’s journey to love took an unexpected turn when her persistent coworker extended multiple invitations to visit a local church. Intriguingly, the selling point for Araceli was the promise of meeting the perfect guy, especially considering her love for anime. After 16 invitations, a gentle nudge from Araceli’s mom convinced her to embrace the opportunity that seemed to be guided by a higher force.
Upon attending the church, fate played its hand when Jose, noticing Araceli and her coworker, initiated a simple introduction that blossomed into a two-hour conversation. Jose, sharing a recent accident that led him to miss a wedding and time with his family, spoke about finding peace through the word “collision” in his reflection on the incident. Araceli was captivated by Jose’s faith and, after exchanging numbers, their journey into a beautiful relationship began.
Araceli and Jose’s wedding day was nothing short of magical, filled with unique and unforgettable surprises. Friends and family orchestrated a delightful surprise – a dancing robot! The joy it brought was palpable as the robot entertained with dance moves, greeted everyone, and even added a touch of mystique with its fog spray gun. This unexpected highlight set the tone for an evening of celebration, as guests flocked to the LED dance floor for lively line dances, balloons, and glow sticks.
Adding to the enchantment, the celebration featured decadent chocolate-covered strawberry towers from Dippedbyd.n, a sweet treat that delighted all in attendance. During cocktail hour, guests indulged in charcuterie bowls from Kandy Arts of San Antonio, adding a savory touch to the culinary experience.
