Magdalena & Gabriel met during a music theory class in college. Gabriel very sweetly claims it was love at first sight. They spent time that spring walking around campus, engaged in passionate discussions about music. That is when Magdalena claims they fell in love. Both answers seem pretty perfect (and sweet) to me. Their souls recognized kindred spirits. They are both kind and generous. They are citizens of the world. They are faithful and loving to their friends and families. They continue to spend quality time reading, attending orchestral concerts, and practicing their faith. Their wedding day reflected all of that.
Magdalena proudly and beautifully wore a delicate lace wedding dress previously worn by her mother and two of her aunts. A walking heirloom. Her earrings belonged to her grandmother who was unable to attend. The priest officiating the wedding was a close friend of the couple. The organist was also a family friend. The wedding party consisted of siblings (Gabriel has four brothers!) and best friends. In planning their wedding, Magdalena and Gabriel prioritized the important people in their lives and their faith. With light streaming through stained glass windows, this couple professed their love for one another. They said their vows in front of their family, their friends, and God, and it was an honor to bear witness to it all.
