Michelle introduced Mario to my fiance and I at a wedding in 2016. I remember him being nice, and admired the way his eyes sparkled as he looked at her. From that moment on, I knew that he was the one for Michelle.
Mario and Michelle's marriage is much more special because of the impact he has on Jaylee, Michelles first little girl. Mario treats Jaylee like a princess, and is a great father and role model that every girl deserves to have. She started calling him daddy all on her own, and Mario's face lights up every time he hears her say it. Their bond and relationship does not go unnoticed, and it's the sweetest thing I ever did see.
Their wedding day was full of love, emotion, and so many touching ideas.
When you first walked into the venue there were tables with beautiful decorations and flowers. To the left there was a large wooden board with their loved ones joining them from heaven. It was hard not to get emotional looking at each photo and seeing the impact they shared on Michelle & Mario.
Before the ceremony, Mario shared a first look with both of his little girls. Mario had his back turned, and Jaylee & Jayden came running into his arms from down the hallway. Mario hugged and kissed both girls and told them how beautiful they looked in their pink dresses.
There was not a dry eye in sight.
Michelle also shared a first look with her dad, and it was just as touching. You could really feel the love between their father-daughter relationship, and at that moment Michelle was the most beautiful woman he had ever laid eyes on.
Mario & Michelle met at a wedding. And the way things started off is quite comical.
Mario was holding Michelles personal belongings, including her phone! He had a little too much to drink, and the next thing you know he was no where to be found. Michelle was told that Mario's grandma took him home. After hearing this, she was a little weary especially since he stole her personal things. The following day he apologized and wanted to make it up to her! He treated her to a date and set up a room at hotel Albuquerque, so she wouldn't have to drive home late. After arriving, Michelle was informed that Mario's card was declined, and she never felt more awkward. He then showed up in a suit with flowers in hand, and swept her off her feet.
Today they laugh and are thankful they have such a funny story to share on how they met, and where it all began. Oh, and Mario is actually very financially responsible.
Congratulations Michelle & Mario!
May you two and your family continue to be blessed!
