Our Story

Jen and Carlos met for their first date at Fall Brewery on 11/11/17. Shortly after their first beer together, they became an item.

Their first year of dating included many Disney trips and lots of hiking! They both love the outdoors and exploring new places together.

Carlos proposed to Jennifer on his birthday camping trip in Joshua Tree on 10/13/19. They started planning the BIG day and chose 10/24/20 as their wedding date. COVID came along and postponed the wedding, but Carlos and Jennifer didn't want to let that stop them from their plans. In June of 2020 when they decided to move the big wedding to 10/16/21, they decided that they would try to start their family now rather than later and still "elope" on their original date. They found out that they were expecting their first baby end of August.

In a very small ceremony with only their siblings and best man they got married at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego. That night at dinner, they did a gender reveal inside of their wedding cake and found out that they were expecting a baby boy. Carlos and Jennifer spent quarantine together in 2020 preparing for their baby boy. Baby Gabriel joined the world on May 7th 2021 at 7:00 am.

Carlos and Jennifer are so excited to have the wedding this year with their parents and friends all by their sides. Please join them in celebrating their marriage properly on October 16, 2021.
