Eliza Valdez & Daniel O'Neill

Eliza Garcia Valdez & Daniel O’Neill

Eliza and Dan met while working in New York, but the pair got engaged in Eliza’s hometown of Monterrey, Mexico. They moved to Dallas for work and started planning a traditional wedding that blended American and Mexican cultures—complete with a bilingual DJ. On October 8, 2016, they wed at Holy Trinity Catholic Church with a garden reception at Arlington Hall awash in white and peach. “Everyone came from different places, so we got to share a little bit of our new hometown with them,” Eliza says. —Sarah Bennett
