Bride & Groom Names: Alba & Jorge Morales-Romero
Location & date of wedding: Casa Diego (San Juan, Puerto Rico) December 21st 2008
Describe your WedStyle : My husband and I are basically a couple of eclectic geeks (our style ranges from goth, to metal-head, to geeky, to rockabilly) and we don't like traditional white weddings, so I made sure I planned every element to our liking (basically, I bought most of the wedding elements online and didn't listen to any advice telling me what I had or didn't have to do in my wedding day). And being that Puerto Rico is pretty conservative when it comes to weddings, ours rocked and even the staff of the venue kept coming over to take a peek at our shindig!
Our favorite moment: The fact that we got away using our dog Lucy as the ring bearer and had my brother in law and his life partner as best men (both pretty unheard of here in PR), wearing a rocking red dress, my little brother giving me away, and ending the reception with a karaoke group rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody!
Wedding advice to Brides 2 Be: Just be true to yourselves every step of the way, and remember that this is just one day, it will go in a blur so have fun!
The best part of being married: Even though we had lived together for a year before we got married, signing that paper has given our relationship that special edge, a sort of coming full circle. We are each other's best friends, and there's nothing better in the world than knowing you will have each other's backs forever.
Thank you again for the beautiful flowers!
