Leah and Jessie met while they were both attending UTSA their sophomore year at the ripe age of 19 years old. So is it any wonder that San Antonio has played such a major part in their lives?
It all started with their very first date on the Riverwalk downtown. They became an official couple and dated until Jessie proposed the June before their 3rd anniversary. They got married just 4 months later on the same date, October 18th, as their first date 3 years earlier.
They shared an intimate wedding ceremony with only close loved ones in the back yard of their Newlywed home. Leah can still remember how the yard glowed with hanging lights everywhere! Jessie’s favorite memory from that day was seeing Leah walk towards him for the ceremony when they would finally be man and wife.
Leah is a woman after my own heart! She requested her favorite meal for the reception…PIZZA! After starting it all with a first date on the Riverwalk they finalized their love for each other and the city by having their honeymoon in Downtown San Antonio. Totally fitting!
I asked each of them for advice on a strong marriage and this waas their answer.
“Always communicate! Husbands usually don’t know how you’re feeling (or what you want to do, or what you expect, etc) unless you tell him!” – Leah
“She’s probably right.” – Jessie
