Our Love Story


The big brown eyed bride - cherishes those morning egg omelettes made by hers truly.


The groom with a broom - promises to clean and wash dishes until death does them part.

It all started when...

Matrons of Honor

Rosario Meza

Graciela's older sister and creator of all the  made-up answers to the bride's 58273950 daily questions as a 4 year old.

Wanda Vides

Graciela's best friend of 20 years. Made it through all the Harry Potter books, high school, college and five countries traveled.


Melissa Malavé

Meli is Graciela's friend, aka her Siamese if you please. Someday the two will walk into the sunset with Shakira.

Jadira Quevedo

Jadi and the bride go way back to their first pranking days at Rutgers in Summer 2001. Don't do the math.

Rosemary Feliz

Rosey, loyal friend to the couple, will defend you in a bar fight anytime, but after too many drinks she'll say, "Every man, against himself".

Best Men

Julio Gomez

Julio, John's older brother, was his movie theatre companion every weekend for six years during childhood. Currently, they only speak to each other through movie quotes.

Reinaldo Benitez

Reinaldo aka Kike aka Pitbull aka Mr. 305 will perform for free if you ask nicely. John's childhood friend was present and rightfully served as wing-man when the groom met the bride.


Louis Gomez

Louie, the youngest, but definitely not the smallest of the Gomez brothers, will never eat before the whole table gets their food.

Michael Pearson

Mike is John's taller, more athletic, darker twin. These friends share the same love for Boston Market.

James Sherrill

James and John go back to twenty ten. It's all about two pads one pen. Find him during cocktail hour and he'll tell you all about it.

Flower Girl & Ring Bearer

Skylar Meza

Skylar is Graciela's niece and god daughter. She shares her aunt's love of extending the last note of any song.

Julian Gomez

John's first nephew, Julian, will be training all year to walk in a straight line holding the most valuable piece of jewelry the couple will ever wear.
