Stephanie and Mauricio lounged in their New York City apartment, smiling ear to ear, while telling us the story about how they met online. "Our relationship will never work because you are an Eagles fan and I’m a Cowboys fan," Mauricio messaged to Stephanie. Stephanie quickly replied, "Well, we can go out on a date and just break up before football season starts." If you think that’s cute, their Love Story only gets better! We strolled around New York City with the couple, hearing about how they met, what they love about each other, and their awesome proposal.
If Stephanie wasn’t already excited enough about the Eagles winning last year’s super bowl, she was about to be in for another surprise. During the Eagles parade, Mauricio was going to pop the question. He was looking for an opportune moment, but couldn’t find the right time to do it. Later that night, after the parade, Stephanie and Mauricio would have dinner with her parents at the Union League, before they headed back to New York. All dressed in her Eagles attire, with family all around, Mauricio got down on one knee and asked Stephanie if she would marry him. With tears of joy filling her eyes, she happily accepted.
"We are, quite literally, speechless. And we love it! You guys are wizards!"
- Stephanie and Mauricio
Stephanie and Mauricio were married at the Ballroom at the Ben on February 23, 2019. “Classy flamingo is my style,” Stephanie explained. From her pink shoes, to her flamingo bouquet detailing, to their gold, flamingo embossed invitations, we couldn’t help but agree that “classy flamingo” is the perfect way to describe Stephanie.
It wasn’t just their flamingo wedding details we loved; the vows Stephanie and Mauricio exchanged were beautiful.
I don’t know what I did to have you in my life, but I am, and will continue to forever be grateful that you and I are best friends.
Look at where we are look at where we started. You push me, inspire me, fascinate me, balance, and support me, and for that, I promise to love you endlessly. Now and forever.
Congratulations to Stephanie and Mauricio and go Eagles!
