Wedding Date: December 5, 1998

Location
Inside the unfinished construction of a home that we were building

Reception
April 9, 1999 at The Cloisters Castle, Lutherville, MD

Honeymoon
We took our honeymoon 1 year after our wedding. We went to Las Vegas for 4 days and then to Ruidoso, New Mexico for 10 days.

Stand Out Memory
We were planning a wedding for April 1999 and building a home all at the same time. The home was going to be finished before our wedding date. Our minister would not marry us if we chose to live together first, so… Jay asked if I would like to move the wedding up to the following Saturday. We did! We put our wedding together in one week! We were married and moved into our home. Then we celebrated with our family and friends at the reception we were planning, 4 months later. It certainly helped to have the connection to fabulous vendors who could make it all happen in 7 days.

We were so happy to finally get married! Birdseed was thrown at us when we left the reception (rice no longer allowed) and my MIL threw a handful in the sunroof of my Mazda as we were driving away. Took weeks to get all that seed cleaned up!

My most favorite memory from our wedding would be dancing to our live salsa band. My husband is from Colombia and loves salsa music. Leading up to the wedding we held several salsa classes for our US friends and family. Everyone danced the night away.

We got married on the rainiest day of 2005! They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck, and we have been incredibly blessed. A cool, rainy day in the fall will always take me back.

Stand Out Memory
I’ll never forget how much love surrounded my husband and me on our wedding day. Our closest family and friends circled around us for our last reception song, “Forever Young” by Mr. Hudson and we all sang it together. As the song was ending everyone huddled for a group hug to cap off the best night of our lives. That song will “forever” remind us of this blissful moment.
