Our Love Story
We met Memorial Day weekend in 2018, on a cruise that we both took with friends. We struck up a conversation in the pool, talking about everything from t-graphs to tithing. The first conversation resulted in us hanging with our friends each day on the cruise and then chatting each evening. Realizing we were both from Texas, we met for dinner a week later, and we have been together ever since!
We were married in 2020 at the height of the pandemic. Because of the health restrictions, we had to cancel the wedding we planned in Mexico and instead were married by Demetra’s uncle in a local park. It was just the three of us!
Being newlyweds in a pandemic has been great. It felt like the world shut down just so we could enjoy each other. We relished in Demetra being able to work from home, which led to quaint dinners and lots of quality time.
Family is extremely important to us and therefore we are committed to spending as much time with our families as we can. Our commitment has resulted in us having annual beach trips with our moms, our siblings and our nieces and nephews.
Christ is at the center of our home and our relationship. As for holidays, we love Christmas. We light the advent candle each Sunday during dinner and we also visit neighborhoods with elaborate lights each Sunday night during the holidays. We also wear matching sweaters each Christmas with Demetra’s family.
We can't wait to share these traditions!
