Karen De La Cruz & Xzavier Barajas
Married March 16, 2019
On March 25, 2017, Xzavier and I spontaneously got married in Georgia; it was intimate and perfect. We knew where our love stood, so why not start the clock now? Xzavier and I dream for milestones and while still young, a 50th anniversary doesn’t sound so far away. Because we got married far from home, the only thing we missed was celebrating with the people we love. We dreamt of sharing our love with family and friends with a fiesta wedding with colors all over the color spectrum. Military life is not always smooth or predictable, but with enough planning and organization, our fiesta wedding finally seemed attainable. We planned our fiesta wedding an entire deployment out and tried to time the wedding flawlessly. Although we were already legally married, we finally got to celebrate our fiesta wedding surrounded by those we love.
