While traveling from Washington to New York during the 2014 Christmas holiday season, Pedro proposed to his beloved Jose. Romantic, right? Except for one thing: “Since he proposed in Spanish, I didn’t realize it was a proposal until we got to New York City and he asked the cab driver to take us directly to the county clerk’s office,” Jose recalls. “I had translated it in my head as a mere question and not a proposal—truly a ‘Sex and the City’ moment!” The pair, who met at a hair-color training at Hotel ZaZa, tied the knot at the JW Marriott Houston Downtown, where the hotel’s renowned art collection served as a beautiful backdrop for their chicly personal wedding.
