Af­ter six years to­gether with one daugh­ter and a nephew they love like a son, Pablo Jimenez and Paula Sauceda be­gan their hap­pily ever af­ter. The cou­ple met through a mu­tual friend and be­gan dat­ing six months later. On Paula’s 21st birth­day, Pablo took her to the site of their first date to ask her to be his wife. “We were on our way to Olive Gar­den and he asked if I was that hun­gry,” she said. “He then asked if I wanted to go to the moun­tain to take a cou­ple of pic­tures. We got to the moun­tain and he took me to the same ex­act spot we had our first date.” Af­ter pop­ping the ques­tion, Paula said she didn’t know what to think. “He told me how much he loves me and the he could never imag­ine his life with­out me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, then he got down on one knee,” she said. “I stood there for a sec­ond with my hand over my mouth and im­me­di­ately be­gan cry­ing. Fi­nally I snapped back and at­tacked him with a bear hug and said yes.”

The big day: Nov. 16, 2013

Best Man and Maid of Honor: Steve Cum­mins, boss and best friend of the

groom, and Maria Yañez, best friend of the bride.

The lo­ca­tion: Royal Ridge Barn.

The re­cep­tion: The re­cep­tion was also at the Royal Ridge Barn and food was served and pre­pared by fam­ily mem­bers of both bride and groom. The groom was the DJ for our wed­ding — DJ Onix — and did a great job. The cake was made by Sarah Vil­laseñor at Spa City Cakes.

The look: The col­ors I in­cor­po­rated are my fa­vorite col­ors, black and pink. Decor and cen­ter­pieces were all in­spired by Pin­ter­est. I worked day and night on cen­ter­pieces and decor. The only flo­ral ar­range­ment I had in the wed­ding was my bo­quet which was eight hot pink roses with bling and hot pink satin that wrapped the stems.

The dress: My dress was a sweet­heart charmeuse gown that I had al­tered to have a lace-up back.

Most un­for­get­table mo­ment: While in the midst of our first dance, the groom got the kids and we fin­ished off our dances with our son and daugh­ter.
