Cristine Danauy and Jorge Zelada

September 9, 2011

The Cliffs Resort

Honeymooned: Maui and Oahu, Hawaii


Cristine and Jorge had been friends for 10 years before making their relationship into a romantic one. Jorge proposed in Montery Beach right by the water, as the beach holds special meaning to the couple. Each having grown up minutes away from the ocean, the transition to Fresno was a difficult one, not just for the distance to the water but also to their friends and family. Their first road trip together in California was to the Cliff’s Resort in Shell Beach to get their ocean fix. They fell in love with the location, so it only made sense that their first special moment with the beaches in California would be where they were wed. They wrote their own vows and recited them overlooking the ocean, in a ceremony that brought their friends and family - who traveled from Florida to be there - to tears. As they finished, a flock of seagulls flew overhead, a confirmation of the couple’s love.
