My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep;
The more I give to thee
The more I have,
For both are infinite. –William Shakespeare

Marjorie tells us, “Francisco and I met in Santo Domingo shortly before he was leaving to another country to pursue graduate school. He was so excited and passionate about this future and his studies that he caused a great impression immediately. The night he gave me our first kiss (which felt like my first ever), it was a good bye kiss, yet here we are. When he left for Utah for his masters, he added me on Facebook, and we only kept up superficial and non-frequent communication. Months after he came back to the Dominican Republic, when we finally saw each other again, our worlds changed forever.
After his return he says that he was always looking for me at a bar that I used to go a lot; but I had changed my preferred spot a few months earlier (on my end, I can now admit that I was always stalking him on social media too). But as fate would have it, we ran into each other at a karaoke bar and we started talking the minute we saw each other. I will never forget his face that day. After minutes of conversations he told me that he had to go back to his friends, to which I replied “ok”. But here comes the smartest or craziest thing I ever did: I told him “you are going to your friends, but you are also leaving me your tie as an insurance that you’ll come back”. Francisco didn’t even hesitate, and before I knew it he came back to me and never left my side. I got to keep the tie, and he got to keep my heart, forever.
Shortly after our wedding, work opportunities took us to Punta Cana, and now we live as close as you can get to paradise with our two beautiful daughters, and still holding strong to the same vows we said the first time. We will forever treasure these gorgeous images by Asia Pimentel Photography and Claire Duran’s beautiful planning of this day. And more importantly, we both look forward to keep saying “I do” and repeating the same promises for the years to come.”
