Xochitl Acevedo and Greg Nabers married in 2022 with their blended family of three children by their sides. They had been planning their wedding since 2018, but had to deal with a number of postponements because of COVID-19. The couple lives in Florida but opted to wed in California, where they met. Xochitl and Greg’s wedding ceremony featured a custom arch covered in flowers and greenery, which acted as a backdrop as they exchanged vows. A beautiful part of the day was the “sand ceremony,” in which the couple and their three kids each poured a different color of sand into the same container as a symbol of their family union. The event’s décor evoked a beachy, coastal bohemian atmosphere with earthy, natural tones and textures. The succulents that were ever present in the Fresno landscape where Xochitl grew up were incorporated into the florals, along with floribunda and tea roses, air plants and preserved eucalyptus. Dining that evening involved a customized menu with three entrées, each one representing a state meaningful to the couple: California, with Santa Maria–style tri-tip; Florida, with smoked snapper and fried plantains; and Louisiana (where the couple moved shortly after they met), with grilled andouille sausage. They also had a kids’ corner, with free babysitting set up by the reception hall that included movies, crafts, and a buffet with pizza and chicken fingers. For Xochitl and Greg, the best part of their day was saying their vows with the California coastline in the background and later taking pictures of a glorious sunset.
