Happy Friday Lovies!

Today's wedding feature is fiery just like the bride! We fell in love with Roxana, the owner of Real People PR as soon as we met her. We hope you fall in love with her wedding story...

Nothing like a love story in the making through mutual friends, unknowingly building their happiness along with the one, whom they will later say, “I do” to.  This is Roxana’s and Jesus Manuel’s story. What started out as a friendship, sharing adventures and making memories, led up to that moment where you can no longer look each other as just friends. It was during an amicable outing, while another friend took their photograph, when she said, “you guys make a cute couple”. Suddenly you realize, the One has been staring at you all along.

For a while before proposing, Jesús felt an overwhelming love for Roxana and he knew, without a glimmer of a doubt, he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her and that their relationship was ready to take that next step. It seemed only fitting that he would go about it, using one of their mutual passions as the means to do it: coffee. Both being coffee lovers, he chose the coffee shop Cuatro Sombras in Old San Juan as his stage, knowing he had the full support of both their families, it was a long awaited moment for all.

Their wedding celebration was a testament to their styles and personalities: down to earth, outgoing and outdoors in touch with nature; with a brunch style fete at Casa de Campo, Vista Verde in Gurabo. It was nothing short of a magical day. Surrounded by their loved ones and their biggest advocates, both Roxana and Jesús recall their friends and families love and affection as one of their fondest memories from that day. Hugs showered with tears of joy from guests sharing their love and a toast from the friend who actually played matchmaker for the couple. That instant they both realized, they were there for all the right reasons and their families love, only made theirs even stronger.
