True love wins – hearing their love story is truly inspiring. Juan and Gabby met when she was just 12 years old in Mexico. They grew up together, each other first love – but their stars did not align quite yet. They each went on with their lives apart from each other. In their own time, they ended up moving to the United States and had no contact with each other for 24 years. Juan’s sister was Gabby’s best friend growing up and currently has Alzheimer’s – well last summer his sister out of the blue began asking for Gabby so much so that they started tracking her down. It’s a small world when they located here in Northern Virginia, the same place that Juan resides in and has for years. All these years later, they saw each other, each at a different place in their lives but one thing never changed, the love that began so many years ago and now was in front of them once again and stronger than ever. So here we are, less than a year later and they have never been happier and now are never letting the other one go! The countdown for their July wedding is on! Plus you may notice Gabby – she is half of the wonderful duo of @gabby_and_martha_ hair & makeup and one of my dearests friends so her being the bride and me being able to photograph their love story fills my heart with happiness!
