Gaby & Gerardo


How long did you date before getting married?

We met in 2011. I think it was November. Started dating in December. Gerardo proposed in May of this year so a little bit over 5 years. We dated in El Salvador, then did long distance for a while and even lived in a couple of different cities together after that. New York has been our favorite so far.

His talent and creativity. 

How he makes me feel like everything will be alright.

Gaby, how did he propose?

He got so nervous. We were going out to dinner and he kept taking a long time to leave our apartment. I was waiting by the door and when I turned around to see if he was coming, he was standing behind me, holding our puppy...and the ring. He asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Of course I said yes. It wasn't planned but it was very him. It was perfect. 


What does marriage mean to both of you? 

Gerardo: For me marriage is a strongest and purest manifestation of love, it's the union of our souls and strengths, a bond that will last for eternity. It's something magical and indescribable.

Gaby: It's the promise to be there for one another no matter what. To make each other feel safe, happy and loved every single day. It means the start of our own little world.
