Real Wedding: Krissy + Carlos
Krissy and Carlos met in January 2012. Krissy was working for a retailer in the Houston Galleria, when one day, Carlos happened to be shopping for his sister and mom in the store. After a brief conversation, Carlos snatched Krissy’s email, and they hit it off right away.
In June 2015, Carlos joined Krissy and her parents for a vacation in Grand Cayman, (the trip and location being an annual tradition for Krissy and her family since childhood.) The group was enjoying dinner on the second night when suddenly Carlos’s sister and mom appeared, surprising Krissy at the table. It wasn’t a surprise to Carlos who had secretly flown them all the way from Panama to be there for what happened next!
Krissy was completely in shock, as she turned to look at Carlos, who was by then bending down on one knee asking her to marry him! “It was flawless,” says Krissy of the romantic surprise.
When it came time to decide where they would get married, Grand Cayman was an obvious choice as Krissy has always known she wanted to get married there, “her favorite place to visit.”
On April 30, 2016, Krissy’s dream came true as almost 100 guests (mainly from Texas, Panama and Spain, Carlo’s native country) joined the couple in the Cayman Islands for their beautiful destination wedding.

The reception took place at The Westin, Governors Lawn. Beautiful, plentiful flowers were a huge priority for Krissy. “I wanted them everywhere and to be the main focal point,” she explains. “I couldn’t have asked for better flowers. Each table had a huge bouquet of all white roses, orchids, and hydrangeas in high or low arrangements for every other table. The bridal party table had a huge wooden box overflowing with orchids and candles that completely made the scene. I honestly think it was the most beautiful piece I have ever seen.”
