Francisca and Rob, An Arizona Spring Desert Wedding

          It is understood that relationships require understanding and sometimes sacrifice. Rarely does a wedding require sacrifice from the start. When she flew from Chile last year to visit family, she never dreamed her life was about to take a crazy turn. While at church, she was introduced to someone that, for him, was love at first sight. They dated for the few months that she was here but eventually she had to go back to Chile. Last summer, Rob flew to Chile to not let her get away and they knew they were in love. In December, Francisca came back to the US to visit family and early into the new year they knew they never wanted to be apart again. The sacrifice part? With an April wedding, and all her family in Chile, very few were going to be able to make that trip. But in order to satisfy immigration, sacrifice was required. Understanding what all this meant, Rob was sensitive to her needs and doing everything possible to give her the wedding she dreamed of. While Francisca's mother, aunt, and brother were the only ones able to make the trip, the brides father was not. The plan was that Francisca would do the father-daughter dance with her little brother. When it came time Francisca was on the dance floor looking for her brother and could not find him. At that moment, her Tio (uncle) walked onto the dance floor with his phone held out. He had Skype'd in her dad. He held her tenderly just like her dad would have done and Francisca held the phone and danced with her dad from over 5,000 miles away. There was not a dry eye. Francisca and Rob have already navigated the waters of marital sacrifice. I hope they have this season in their marriage to relax and enjoy being newlyweds!
