After 38 Years Together, This Couple Said "I Do" at The Vista at Applewood Golf Course in Colorado

Magda and Edna have been partners for 38 years and celebrated their lasting love with a classic wedding at The Vista at Applewood Golf Course in Golde

Magda and Edna have been partners for 38 years and celebrated their lasting love with a classic wedding at The Vista at Applewood Golf Course in Golden, Colorado. Despite a light sprinkling of rain, the formal white-and-gold wedding came together beautifully. 

"We met when I was 19 and Edna was 17," shares Magda. "We used to work together in Mexico but never really talked. One day I was walking to work and Edna stopped with her dad and asked me if I wanted a ride to work. I accepted the ride and little by little we got close and learned we had feelings for each other. We fell in love in the '80s and in Mexico, this was very frowned upon and dangerous. We decided to hide our love all these years instead of losing our family and finally came out two years ago. Most of our family accepted us and we are so glad to not have to hide. We do everything together so we decided to buy rings and propose to each other at a dinner we planned in front of our sister and brother-in-law and brother." 

"Our wedding was the best day of our lives and something we never thought would happen," recalls the couple. "Our niece took care of all the little details. She added things that were personal to our story, such as our 'secret tree' where we used to meet in secret when we were younger to adding the angels we love so much to the invitations. We knew we wanted soft colors with gold details. We love black but didn't want everything to be black so we had the idea to have all of our guests wear black instead. Another one of my favorite parts was our wedding attire. I have never worn a dress but wanted to feel like a princess and when I tried on my dress I cried and felt like I was in the clouds," says Magda. "Edna's suit from Zara was as if it was made for her! It was unexpected and a nice surprise to our guests." 

"Our ceremony was supposed to take place outdoors surrounded by trees, plants and seasonal flowers except it started raining right when we were doing our rehearsal two nights before and it never stopped. We had to switch things around and get married indoors," explains Magda. "Nothing would ever dampen our day though and we know rain is good luck. We had our florist and planner switch plans and make the ceremony indoors which worked out great! For our reception, we know we love flowers so our florist incorporated soft pinks and blues with white to match our invitation liner colors. We both love gold and knew that needed to be incorporated as well so we used that in our unique chargers. Our menus were also bilingual because we wanted all of our guests to be included and not feel left out. It was important to us for everyone to feel included." 

Looking back on the wedding day, the couple notes that their "wedding vows were the most anticipated moment. We waited 38 years to declare our love to each other in front of the world! Our wedding day was truly a dream and sometimes we pinch each other to make sure we are awake and it wasn't just a dream. We never thought this day was possible for us. We never even thought we would see the day were we could come out. We were so scared of losing our family that we sacrificed showing our affection and love for each other in front of people. Everyone deserves love and to be happy."
