Life After Marriage - Gonzalez Ever After
Meet Nanci who has lovingly shared a piece of her beautiful day and life!
When and where did you get married?
We got married on October 10th, 2015 at the Dreams Resort & Spa in Los Cabos.
How long was your engagement?
We were engaged for 3 years before saying "We do!"
What was the biggest transition for you after marriage?
For myself, was changing my signature. I had worked years developing and perfecting my signature that now I had to develop a new style that I like for my married name. Besides the legal changes, I think the biggest transition for me after marriage was mixing and managing our finances. We really had to learned how to work as a team, compromise, and to communicate effectively. Which I have found that it's great for our marriage because we can come together and talk about our future plans.
What is next for you and your husband?
It's very important for us to accomplish our personal goals first, that's something that we've always been big in our relationship (since 10 years ago & still live by it). I plan to finish my schooling and eventually have my own business. For my husband, it's to begin his career in the Aviation Industry (as an Air Traffic Controller) . As a couple, we plan to continue to travel and scratch our world map one destination at a time. As for kids, we would love to be parent in the near future. We both come from very humble families that didn't have much and we want to ensure that our children to have everything we never had. I think all in it's time, we will eventually expand our own family, but for now our two furry babies (Coco & Tyson: both Malti-poos) will do. Till we decide that we would like to take on this step.
If you could give any advice to brides planning their wedding this year, what would it be?
My advice for any bride that is planning her wedding would be to never feel forced into doing anything that relates to your wedding details. For example, asking someone to be in your bridal party, inviting someone out of courtesy, saying "Yes" to something you don't necessarily agree with, or taking on something that's out of your budget. I think that there is no right or wrong way to plan your wedding. In the end, your wedding day should ultimately convey your love story and your sense of style as a couple.
If you would like to share your love story on the blog, please send me a note and I would be happy to hear and gush over your beautiful day.
