Marriage is an opportunity to bring glory to God as you reflect His love story.  

Most of you already know mine and my husbands love story, but for those who don't, Id like to share with you everything from how we met up until our honeymoon! We are excited for this new journey the Lord has allowed us to embark on. Hope you feel the love and grace of Christ through our love story/ testimony. "We love because he first loved us." 1 John 4:19 

How I met my Husband
It was May of 2005. I was seventeen and leading worship for our Youth night. Carlos was sixteen and there as a guest. Once service was over, Carlos asked a mutual friend to introduce us and boy did sparks fly! Later that night he called me and our friendship began to bloom. It was clear that Carlos wanted more than a friendship and even though I was completely smitten by him, I just felt like it wasn't the right time to pursue a relationship. I remember our conversation and how he promised that he'd conquer me hahaha it was the cutest thing ever! No one had ever said that to me. Over the course of three years, as our individual relationship with Christ grew, so did our friendship and love for each other. FINALLY in March of 2008, the time felt right and he asked my parents for their blessing to court me. We've been inseparable ever since!

<Fast forward to December 24th 2012>
It was a cold, clear and beautiful night. The Christmas lights were more beautiful than ever! We had an annual Christmas Eve tradition of going to see the light shows in Chino. As we walked I began to hear our song playing in the distance. my heart began to race and tears weld up in my eyes. As we turned the corner I noticed a live band playing our song! Carlos placed me front and center, grabbed the microphone and began to sing to me! He said the most beautiful words, got on one knee a proposed with a gorgeous ring!!! I nodded YES and we sealed it with a kiss. It was simply magical, sweet and AMAZING!!!

Our Love Story 
A film by Jesse Berumen & Raul Cabrera
I'm definitely a sucker for a good love story and just the thought of two people coming together and forming a family is so precious to me! Most of the time when you go to a wedding you have no clue how the couple even met! So I wanted to make sure we shared our love story and oh how wonderful it was to take our family and friends along on the journey that lead up to the alter. 
Primitive West did a beautiful job capturing it on film. Thank you guys!

Our Special Day
Mr. & Mrs. Moran

On Saturday May 24th, 2014, I married my true love and best friend. My heart never felt so much joy, peace and love all at once! As much as I would love to say everything went as planned, it did not, but in its imperfection our wedding day was everything I could have dreamed of simply because I knew that God was behind every detail, every thought and every moment. I am excited to share our wedding with you <3

Our Honeymoon
Dublin, Ireland May 25th, 2014 -- June 2rd, 2014
My husband and I spent eight amazing days honeymooning in Ireland. We stayed at Bewley's Hotel in Dublin, and traveled out to Country Wicklow, Malahide and other surrounding cities via bus, tram and train. It was magical for us to finally be experiencing life on our own as newlyweds. We did lots of sight seeing, visited many castles, did some shopping at the Dublin city center, and ate plenty of authentic Irish food. We chose Ireland because of the amazing scenery, gloomy cuddle weather and of course the castles! We consider ourselves part Irish now and loved Ireland so much, we will definitely be back! We will never forget our Irish Honeymoon.
