A Vintage Villas Elopement: Andrea and Jose

Romance bloomed for Andrea and Jose who met at their Miami job in 2019. And what better way to start their new life in Austin than by celebrating their love in an intimate ceremony at Vintage Villas?

Andrea and Jose

After meeting at their FBI job in Miami, these two quickly became friends. One thing lead to another, and they fell in love.

**Also, can I interrupt this story to point out that they moved from south Florida to Austin around the same time as I did and we just happened to find each other? If that’s not fate …

Okay, back to their love story … ***

Jose proposed at the Tower of Americas in San Antonio. “It was a huge surprise. We had a lovely dinner at Chart House. With my birthday only days away, he had me open a series of gifts enclosed in birthday wrapping paper. When I got to the ring box, he stood up and recited a heartfelt message. Then, he got to one knee, and asked me to marry him. It was beautiful!”

Andrea and Jose’s lives have lead them to Austin, Texas. And with this new start, they are ready to say “I do,” at the stunning Vintage Villas.

Located in Austin, Vintage Villas is “a full-service wedding venue offering outdoor ceremonies and indoor reception space with expansive views of Lake Travis, in-house catering, and a 44-room hotel.”

With their elopement being intimate, they opted to say their vows at the Arbor, with their lunch served in the Travis room. Both accompanied by the amazing views of Lake Travis.

Andrea had vows that she read to her step-children.

In addition to the vows they had for one another, Andrea had a special vow to always love and protect Jose’s (and now her) children. Her sweet vows had all of us tearing up, and brought such sweet smiles to the kids’ faces. They couldn’t be more excited that their dad is marrying Andrea and that she’s a part of their family now!
