Liz and Juan met in 2007 in Juan’s hometown of Cordoba, Argentina, while Liz was on a brief exchange. Liz later posted a photo of Juan on her Facebook page entitled “the one who got away” as she was struck by his maturity – and he was in a band. A year later Liz returned to Argentina for a year-long exchange, and a mutual friend reconnected them. Juan impressed Liz by speaking to her in English about politics. After seeing each other just three times, Liz invited Juan to backpack through Brazil with her between semesters. They spent 4 days together in Buenos Aires before the two day bus trip to Brazil, and it was then that Liz knew this was a love like none she had ever experienced. Juan proposed at Ben Folds concert in June, 2014, during Folds’ performance of The Luckiest.
Liz and Juan chose to marry at Meridian House in DC. They had a bilingual ceremony with touching and emotional readings from friends and family, and from the bride and groom. The cocktail reception in the Linden Grove featured hors d’oeuvres from Main Event and entertainment from Sage Strings Quartet. After a delicious seated dinner, Liz and Juan shared a Tango as their first dance. DC Fusion kept the party rocking all night long. At the end, Liz and Juan hopped into a pedicab and were chauffeured into happily ever after.
