Desi and Brandon met about 10 years ago on a tiny island in the Bahamas called Cat Cay. Their families often vacationed there but Brandon and Desi did not cross paths until August 2003 when Brandon approached Desi in Bu’s Bar, the only bar on the island at the time, and they exchanged information. Since Desi and Brandon were both born and raised in Miami they would often run unto each other over the years, however the timing was never right.
Fast forward to November 26, 2011 when the timing was right (!) and Brandon asked Desi to marry him. Earlier on in their relationship the two went on several trips out to Brandon’s family house in Aspen which is where their love for each other, and this special mountain town, deepened.
Brandon and Desi were able to incorporate Aspen and Cat Cay, these very special places to them, in their wedding by hosting the wedding atop of Aspen Mountain and by engraving Cat Cay’s coordinates inside their wedding rings.
After the ceremony the couple descended to downtown Aspen on the Silver Queen Gondola. This was one of their favorite moments as it gave them some privacy and a beautiful view as their first time being a married couple. At the bottom of the Gondola the couple was met by a horse drawn carriage that whisked them to the Hotel Jerome for a reception with their family and friends.
