Wedding: February 25, 2018

Ceremony & reception: The Addison Grove

Honeymoon: Maui

When Briana Miller went to the Sewell River in San Marcos during her freshman year of college wearing an inflatable turtle, she had no idea she was about to meet Willem Gonzalez, the man she would marry. He asked her to be his girlfriend in front of her dorm building, and almost eight years later, while visiting San Marcos together, he asked her to marry him. Rain was forecast on the wedding day, but the sun came out for their laid-back, relaxed event. The couple’s best friend got ordained just for them and officiated at the ceremony, which included vows they wrote themselves. One special moment was when Willem’s godfather, who had thought he couldn’t attend, surprised them when he showed up. Having all their friends and family in one place was the best part of the couple’s day.
