Luis and Courtney’s love story is like no other. They met through a mutual friend in 2012 while she was 23, as Courtney describes, “Luis was not 23! haha, we have a 19 year age gap between us.” Three years after they met, Luis finally won over Courtney’s heart and took her out on their first official date. One year later and the pair were expecting their first child together, their precious little boy Kai. Courtney describes her story as a non-traditional one and one that took her for a turn. “I found out I was pregnant, lost an older brother (33) and was let go from my job all within the next 8 weeks.” – Courtney. Luis however never left her side through the hard times and vowed to only make them better. The couple married 8 days later on April 28, 2018!
