Mariana & Kyle's Wedding

Longfellow's, Saratoga, NY
Bride and groom embrace and nearly kiss.

It’s in the way they see each other.

Kyle met Mariana, his beautiful Spanish bride, when a friend introduced them after work. Mariana, out dancing with her girlfriends, felt a connection with Kyle on the dance floor that sparked their initial flame. But the true love that grew is what will keep these red-hot embers ablaze for life.

This couple is a beautiful force for good, serving their love for each other, their family, and their community. Kyle is learning Spanish, when he’s not fighting fires, to better connect with Mariana’s family. Mariana came to the US from Uruguay not knowing a lick of English.  She now speaks fluently, helps students thrive as a school social worker, and is studying for her Masters in Social Work at Stamford. Each takes so much pride and supports one another in all that they do and strive to be.

Life’s elements came together in perfect balance on this day: Earthly sands mixed from distant shores; warmth and joy on a light, airy breeze; a touch of nurturing rain; and a fiery family dancing deep into the night. 

Congratulations, Mariana & Kyle!

We wish you an abundance of every one of these elements in such beautiful balance all the days of your life.
