P ERFECT L OVE Rings: (Bride) Harry Winston (Groom) Jeannette Fossas HOW THEY MET Cindy and Federico first met during childhood as their families were friends but then they took separate journeys. After 22 years of not seeing each other, they met again on Dorado Beach Ritz Carlton Resort. Cindy hadn’t planned on going anywhere until her friend asked if she would accompany her and her boyfriend to meet with some friends at the beach...and Federico was there. Cindy and Federico didn’t speak much for the first hours, until she had to leave because of work early the next morning and still had to cook. That is when he decided to ask her to lunch the next day in exchange for her to stay a little longer. Before letting her go, he insisted on getting her cellphone number to make sure she got home safe. After a couple of delightful dates, where they were kicked out of restaurants for remaining after operational hours and countless hours of interesting phone conversations, Federico decided it was time to scale things up. Cindy’s family had planned a trip to Peru, and after the fourth day he plotted with Cindy’s siblings to join the trip. At the end of the trip Federico told Cindy he wasn’t coming back to Puerto Rico until she agreed to become his girlfriend. 88 Perfect Wedding Magazine A New Era / Spring 2017
