Aspen Wedding // Desi & Brandon

March 25, 2014

From the bride:

“Brandon and I met about 10 years ago (sometime in August 2003) on a tiny island in the Bahamas called Cat Cay. Our families often vacationed there but we’d didn’t cross paths until that summer when Brandon came up to me in Bu’s Bar (the only little bar on the island). He was attending Tulane University and I was still in high school but we decided to keep in touch and exchanged “AIM screen names”. Over the years we ran into each other on South Beach a few times but the timing never seemed right to date.

Then, in August 2008, I parted ways with my ex boyfriend while studying abroad in London and Brandon insisted on going on a date the minute I came back home to Miami. We had our first official date on South Beach at Bond Street and we clicked right away. After 2 years of dating, I went to NYC to attend law school but we stayed together in a long distance relationship for 1.5 years.

On November 26, 2011, I was still living in NYC but apartment hunting in South Beach when Brandon asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes. I moved back to Miami and we decided to get married in beautiful Aspen where we fell in love but we engraved Cat Cay’s coordinates inside our wedding rings to always keep that special place close to us.”
