Our Story

Our meet-cute happened in the most unexpected place in the world--deep in the heart of the rainforest in Puerto Rico. Ariadne was on a trip with friends, Miguel was on leave to visit his sister for her birthday and both decided to travel several hours from the other side of the island to take a hike in El Yunque.

They met on the hike but did not say much to each other so some of Ariadne's friends stepped in and got Miguel's number. Before they left the rainforest, Miguel offered Ariadne a coconut and their very first picture was taken. Thinking they'd never see each other again, they each went back to their day until a short while later they ran into each other once more! At this point, Ariadne's friends refused to let the moment pass again and invited Miguel and his sister to dinner with the group while Ariadne shrunk into the backseat hoping the handsome stranger couldn't see her beet-red face.

Before saying yes to a bunch of strangers asking him to dinner, Miguel asked his sister if they should go and she said "no" but he replied emphatically "Yes!" At dinner, the two bonded after sharing stories and not wanting to miss his last chance, Miguel asked for Ariadne's number and the rest is history.


Despite 1,769 miles between them and an 8-month long deployment keeping them apart, Miguel and Ariadne learned to know, trust and love each other and above all lean on the God who brought them together in the first place. They cannot wait to be united in front of God, family and friends on this special day and see where life takes them from here.


"...I found him whom my soul loveth; I held him, and would not let him go..." Song of Solomon 3:4
