Anna and Gerardo's Hot Springs Wedding

Anna and Gerardo’s Chance Meeting Turned Elegant Hot Springs Wedding 6-3-17

Gerardo and I met Christmas Eve 2014 at Verizon Wireless. Never in a million years did I think a trip to Verizon would change my life. On May 22, 2016 Gerardo popped the question! Flowers, candles, and a Starbucks cup in place for the Sunday evening surprise left me in shock. I said YES and was ready to start planning my dream wedding!

Gerardo and I got married June 3, 2017 at the Arlington Crystal Ballroom in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Since I was a little girl I had always dreamed of getting married there. This day was by far the best day of our lives; everything was perfect. All of our vendors played a major role in making our dream wedding become a reality. When looking for the perfect dress I knew Normans was the place to go. My sister lives in Springfield, Mo and I had always loved looking at their window display. Patty did an outstanding job with helping me find the perfect dress for my elegant ballroom wedding. She was very patient and listened to me when I was telling her what I wanted in my wedding dress. I also got my jewelry and veil from Normans. I cannot thank them enough for giving me the look I had always dreamed of.
