Double the Proposals,

Double the Love

Cristina & Neeann


How They Met

Cristina and Neeann both moved to San Antonio in 2015 to complete a year of service through the AmeriCorps program, City Year. They were assigned to serve in the same middle school and quickly became best friends. After about a year of friendship, their relationship developed into the greatest love story.

Part of this couple’s love story was having two proposals! Neeann proposed to Cristina gathered around friends and family after driving over ten hours to meet Cristina in her hometown. “Of course they all already knew about it! It was small, intimate and the biggest surprise for me”. Cristina felt that Neeann also deserved her own diamonds, so, a couple months later after seeing Christmas lights together, Cristina proposed to Neeann as well.


The Inspiration

“Choosing the venue was like choosing our college. When we toured The Milestone we immediately knew, ‘oh this is the one!’ It was just a feeling I can’t explain. What really sold us was the huge bridal suite. Since we were a 2-bride couple and had a bunch of girl bridesmaids on both sides, we knew we needed a space that could accommodate all of us. Plus the venue reception hall was absolutely beautiful with high ceilings.”

Cristina and Nerissa’s wedding venue is what ultimately inspired their theme. The Milestone has a minimal modern farmhouse feel creating an elegant atmosphere with black, white, and greenery colors.

Keri and Noelle, from All In The Details, greatly exceeded the couples expectations. They were always available to answer any questions along with making the couple feel loved and that their love should be celebrated. “They were so on top of things and always three steps ahead. They are worth the investment!”


Unique Elements

“Well besides the obvious of we were a two bride couple, I think it was that we kept some things traditional but put our own spin on it. For example, we did two bouquet tosses, one being with the single girls and one being with the single guys, and everyone was so eager to participate. It was a lot of fun!”

The couple also flew in a singer from Nashville to play for the ceremony and cocktail hour. However, Neeann surprised Cristina with a live performance with the singer where they sang and played guitars. “It was the best moment of the entire wedding”.

In the spirit of tradition, wedding attire was kept secret from one another and Bella Bride did a wonderful job helping the couple keep this tradition. In search for complementary dresses, the couple was blindfolded with their favorite dresses on to show a side by side look to their family and friends.


Words of Advice

“I would say book things way in advance, and do your best to pay things off in chunks before the wedding month. And then pre-plan for those last minute costs, such as vendor tips/gifts/etc. That way money or finances isn’t a stress for you on the happiest weekend of your life!

Also, when you’re debating the little things, just try to imagine if people will remember it or not. And then make your decision.”
