German arrived to the United States on August of 2002 from Cali, Colombia, the same year and month that Tatiana arrived to the United States from Guayaquil, Ecuador. Their story began with meeting at a house party hosted by Tatiana's best friend, at the time, Yulieth Sanchez, in Tampa, Florida. A mutual friend of Tatiana and German, Jesus Gomez, had invited German to the party. German and Tatiana talked, danced, exchanged MSN names and phone numbers. Throughout the years, they kept the friendship going through instant messenger as German lived in New Jersey with his mom and brother while Tatiana lived in Tampa with her family. Although they both made efforts of staying in touch throughout the years, neither Tatiana nor German foresaw anything more than a friendship. They would take any opportunity they could to see each other. They lost track of each other for a few years, but they reconnected back in 2015 for Cinco de Mayo, if you are from Tampa you know how we Tampanians celebrate it. It only took a month after they saw each other again after a couple of years of disconnect, for them to realize they wanted to give it a try and have something more than a friendship. German asked Tatiana to be his girlfriend on the day of his birthday June 18, 2015 and of course, Tatiana said "YES". Four months after their relationship started, they felt they were ready for more and they decided to move in together on October of 2015. After a year of sharing the same roof, German decided to pop the big question, "Will you Marry Me" and of course Tatiana said "YES" once again. German and Tatiana's civil marriage was on November 19, 2016 and they are ready for their marriage to receive the The Lord's blessing on June 9, 2018. 

German & Peggy {Tatiana} enjoy going on bike rides together when time permits, family gatherings, and most of all, spending time with their dog Rocky in the comfort of their home, where they enjoy the lake view and peaceful nights by the fireplace on starry nights.

They lover each other's sense of humor, vision for their family and kids, their goals in life and how caring and affectionate they are towards each other even on their worst days.

We loved being a part of their fairytale, the time flew by and German & Peggy enjoyed every minute of their wedding day, Peggy planned every elegant detail beautifully and every moment and every second was a joyous celebration. 

Congratulations to this gorgeous couple!
