It was a lazy Wednesday evening. Birds were chirping, businessmen were driving back home from work, and young ladies were making the most of Happy Hour. Not the usual setting for love stories, but we are where we are. When Beth and Carlos met, neither of them were looking for a relationship; he was working himself up the corporate ladder and still adjusting to life in Houston, she was finishing plans to move abroad – again.
However, as life would have it, these two managed to meet each other at the same bar… And as such, after many conversations, dancing and vodka tonics, they went on to see each other again. And again. And again… And well, you know the rest.
Building a relationship between two people from two different cultures is no joke. There’s a lot of initial disagreements that sometimes transform into learning and some other times, into month-long discussions. Different families, traditions, history, food, music… It's a lot to learn. Especially when you’re out of school and you thought you were done learning for good… Nope.
Since that night they met, Beth and Carlos have been taking it one day at a time, learning a lot about one another and especially, learning patience. The love they have for each other has proven to be their strongest power so far, and they expect it to continue as such.
Now with a date on the calendar, the bride and groom are preparing to have their most beloved friends and family members for a weekend-long celebration in the beautiful beach town of Acapulco. They’re both excited and a little overwhelmed, but in the end, they’re looking forward to showing everyone a little of their personal lives during a fun cross-cultural destination wedding.
