Mayra and Rene have proven that love can conquer any distance! Despite crossing paths in college, the two love birds eventually connected over social media. With several thousands of miles between them, they became regular pen pals. As their summer of learning about each other and phone conversations came to an end, Rene finally asked Mayra on a real date to a concert in Los Angeles. Their date was perfect, leading to both of them falling in love with each other. As they grew closer together, they decided to go on a vacation with both families to Hawaii. With beautiful beaches, mesmerizing sunsets, and the company of all loved ones, Rene got down on one knee and declared his love to Mayra, asking her to marry him... And of course, the rest is history...
Their wedding day mirrored their love story. It was filled with love, family, lots of music and all things romantic. Rene dipped Mayra for their first kiss as husband and wife at the St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church. Guests were then invited to the Brandview Ballroom for a family-style dinner, a night of dancing with several different cultural bands, and a personal serenade from the groom to his new bride. We are so thrilled for their love and can't wait to see what life has in store for M+R!
