“Me and some guys from school, had a band and we tried real hard.” Okay, not exactly. Ricky was the drummer’s cousin, and he didn’t have to try "real hard." Let’s back up a bit – Adriana was meeting a friend at the mall who, in turn, was waiting for a friend whose band was on tour. Upon arriving, Adriana met the drummer but knew immediately there wasn’t any "tempo." Then Ricky, the drummer’s cousin, arrived – and there began a resonant relationship between Adriana and Ricky. 

After a few years of dating, Adriana and Ricky took a road trip to their favorite city, Chicago. They saw Aladdin Live, cheered on the Cubs, ate deep dish pizza, and strolled through Lincoln Park. At the park, Adriana asked Ricky to hold her purse while she looked at the fireflies, they continued their stroll. Ricky then asked Adriana to retrieve his phone from her purse. As she looked inside her purse, she saw the little box. On cue, Ricky took the box, got down on one knee, and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Adriana said, YES! 

They married at Eagle Dancer Ranch, one of the most picturesque ranches in the Texas Hill Country, with it's live oaks and a cliff escarpment bordering Werner Creek, Jacob Creek, and the Guadalupe River. Drawing inspiration from the Hill Country, the couple added delicate wood pieces, and small candles surrounded by eucalyptus and babies breath for their décor – with colors of blush, navy, and neutrals. “I felt like we had smiles on our faces all day! We laughed while exchanging vows, dancing, feeding each other cake, and with our family and friends. Hands down, the most memorable moment was walking down the aisle with my dad – walking towards the love of my life surrounded by our family and friends.” 

“Oh, and when you held my hand, I knew that it was now or never. These are the best days of my life.”
