Recently my dad and I went to Florida to attend my Aunt Lucy’s wedding. It was a special trip for me, not only because I saw Lucy and her husband Miguel get married, but because distance makes it difficult to visit my dad’s side of the family as much as we’d like to. The Garcias & Co. are a wonderful bunch, and I think the wedding itself was a testament to that. Not only did family members contribute their different talents, but everyone’s good spirits remained intact when rains from Tropical Storm Debby arrived at the outdoor ceremony and reception, and the celebration continued without pause for Lucy and Miguel.
It was a trip I will remember fondly, and I will keep my memories close — whether I’m thinking of the wedding, of seeing my grandma make tortillas from scratch before breakfast, or getting to know relatives better and listening to family legends about my grandpa’s friendships with Pancho Villa and John Dillinger — until I make it back to see my family again.
The day after the wedding a few of us went to Rock Springs in Apopka with Lucy and Miguel. Here are some images from that day.
Congratulations, Lucy & Miguel!
