We Are Getting Married!

Join us in Cancun, Mexico

About us!

A small town boy. A big city girl. Two different lives brought together by the grace of God. Who would have thought their paths would cross and flourish into an everlasting partnership.

Manny Gonzalez was born in Delores Hildalgo, Mexico. At the age of six, his family moved to Kerrville, Texas. Now known as the home of Jonny Manzel, Manny spent his childhood in the beautiful Hill Country. He spent most of his days on the football field or running the track at Tivy high school. He loved sports! He attended college at Texas State University in San Marcos where he actively participated in his fraternity, Lambda Chi Alpha. One summer he decided to sell educational books door to door. This turned into a seven year gig where he recruited college students to join the experience when he graduated. He wanted a change so he decided to move to Tampa, Florida to work. With his finance degree, he transitioned into financial advising.

Kristen was born and raised in the theme park capital, Orlando, Florida. As a very active child, she was always on the go with cheerleading, gymnastics, lacrosse, and volunteering. She attended college at Florida State University where she worked at the coach's video department filming for various sports. One summer, she decided to sell educational books door to door. This turned into a four year gig where she recruited college students to join the experience when she graduated. This allowed her to travel to many places such as Costa Rica, Cancun, and Puerto Vallarta. She graduated with a degree in Family and Child Science and always had a passion for educating children. She is now a 3rd grade teacher in Frisco, Texas.
