Anna & Alex : Married

Anna and Alex met and fell in love in New York. But that’s just a small snippet of their big story. Throughout their lives and their relationship, they have lived all around the world. Seattle and New York and Los Angeles and Mexico and Spain and San Francisco and lots of pretty places in between. In fact, as a little girl, it was on a trip to Mexico with her father that Anna fell in love with an entire country. The beauty, the language, the culture. Everything. She soaked up all she could from her time there and vowed one way or another to return. Little did she know she would eventually find her way back, this time to make a different kind of vow.

Anna and Alex exchanged heartfelt promises in a place they both love, Mexico. At The Hacienda de Cortes in Cuernavaca, Morelos, they promised to be lifelong globe-trekking partners. To build a home in every city they decide to live in. To do everything in their power to fulfill one another’s hopes and dreams. In Anna, Alex had found the greatest treasure in all of his travels – her heart. It was a wildly perfect night and just the beginning of what I know will be an adventurous love.

Anna and Alex – my heart is full. Thank you, thank you, thank you for leaving your mark. Steven and I are grateful to know you. 😉
The day was designed and coordinated by Valerya from CREA Eventos, and let me just say if you’re getting married in Mexico, this woman is a genius!

  • […] right. See, we celebrate February 20, 2011 as our anniversary because that’s the day when everyone showed up in Cuernavaca, saw us recite our vows and kiss, danced and drank tequila until 3a…, and woke up the next morning to see us say adios and fly off to Tulum. But before that, we had to […]
