San Fernando Hall

Cristina & Daniel

Halloween is a special holiday for Cristina and Daniel. Both families celebrate together and they honor Daniel’s late grandfather’s birthday during their Halloween celebration.

This Halloween was like any other, Cristina was helping Daniel’s grandmother with the cake.  Cristina explains, “I was setting the cake up on the table and looking for some candles. My back was towards the rest of the family and I remember it getting very quiet. So, I turned around and there was Daniel on one knee.  I gasped with excitement! I will always remember his words, “Cristina Veronica Torres I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?”  Cristina said one simple word “YES” and the entire house broke out into cheering and clapping

Cristina shares, “It was the best day ever! On October 31, 2018 Daniel asked me to be his forever.”

A Beautiful Church to Say “I DO!”

Cristina and Daniel wanted an elegant, Mexican traditional wedding in a beautiful church with family and friends by their side. “I absolutely love the incredible Sacred Heart Chapel at Our Lady of the Lake University. Daniel and I were able to exchange our vows in one of my favorite churches,” explains Cristina.

Loving Your Vendor Choices

Choosing their vendors came down to those who were very professional, humble, organized, and well prepared with everything.  Cristina discusses some of her favorites, “I loved working with Ms. Eloise Cortez-Lara from San Fernando Hall. She made certain everything was just as we had wanted. And I have to say thank you to my wedding coordinator Cielo Perez. Both companies were phenomenal. We were so happy with how everything turned out. We would do it over again, a million more times.”

When it came to décor, Daniel was happy with whatever Cristina wanted. “I’ve always loved sunflowers, so I made them a focal point throughout our décor.” Cristina continues, “All centerpieces were handmade by myself, my mom, aunt and other family members and Daniel picked our colors of navy blue & gold. Everything looked spectacular.”
