Erika and José are both from New York and they a lot of the same friends going all the way back to college, but it took Meetup to bring them together. Erika even visited Jose’s school while both of them were in college – but for some reason, they never crossed paths. In fact, they had to wait until they moved to Washington, DC to meet. We love the mixed colors bridesmaid’s dresses and the bold navy and pink wedding color palette for this romantic soiree! Thank you to Clarity and Class for sharing this outdoor Leesburg wedding with us today!
José had been part of the Meetup group in which they two met for quite a while. For one particular happy hour, he went to hang out with people who he had become good friends with in the group. Erika had recently joined the group and also decided to attend the event; it would be her first. Erika decided to bring one of her friends for moral support, Ariana. Not only is Ariana one of Erika’s best friends and bridesmaids, but Ariana was also friends with José. In fact, Erika was very surprised at the fact that when she and Ariana arrived to the happy hour, Ariana knew more people than she did. Ariana introduced Erika and José and they hit it off pretty well. They were both attracted to each other, but decided to take things slow. It wasn’t until Ariana’s birthday that Jose got enough nerve to ask Erika out on an official date. Erika accepted José’s offer and the rest was history.
