Andrea and Julio blended their traditions and families together at their small wedding in Fredericksburg, VA during the fall of 2022. They shared a first look in Hurkamp Park and took photos with their kids in front of a local nearby courthouse before heading to The Gallery at 718 for the ceremony. The short and sweet ceremony included all of Andrea and Julio’s children as bridesmaids and groomsmen by their parents’ side. After the vows, they added their signatures to the marriage license and shared a first dance before guests were invited to eat. Bottled Jarritos were served at the bar and churros were set out on the dessert table for guests. The couple cut a 3-tier traditional wedding cake at the reception after guests were served tacos from QDOBA catering with all the fixings, guac not extra.
