Jeff & Gilda


The Bride

Gilda Nuñez

An avid scholar and practicing Psychotherapist, Gilda Nuñez is the classic gentle, old-soul. Her love and admiration has helped her throughout her career as well as in life. Tackling every day with a vigorous spirit, bright smile, and ultra optimistic aura. She truly embodies her religious beliefs and values in a remarkable way.

The Groom

Jeffrey Peña Carterson

If you know Jeff, you know that he's many things, but ordinary is not one of them. Refusing to conform to the standard rules of life, Jeff has always set his own path in life. An entrepreneur since the days of selling mixed-song CDs in junior high to now managing a successful Digital Marketing Agency in Downtown Dallas. With an insatiable curiosity, Jeff has always been one to seek out adventure and continue forward on life's less traveled roads.

"As long as we love one another, God will live in us, and his love will be complete in us."


"Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale."


"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."

Our Love Story

  • "You wanna dance?"

    October 17th, 2015

    Our story begins with those simple three words. While attending a mutual friend's wedding, Jeff, with the help of his friend Sabino and a little liquid courage, introduced himself and invited a beautiful young girl on to the dance floor.

  • The First Date

    November 7th, 2015

    After they met, they didn't see each other again until their first date about 3 weeks later. It happened to be on Gilda's birthday, so Jeff wanted to make it extra special. The evening was planned around a mutual love for the city life, and it included a dinner at Perry's, followed by a performance at the Windspear Opera House. They capped it off with drinks on the balcony of the Iron Cactus, while looking over downtown Dallas.

  • The Proposal

    November 7th, 2016

    Fast forward exactly one year later. Both Jeff and Gilda are madly in love and Jeff can think of nothing better than spending the rest of his life with his Queen. The plan? A surprise proposal in Dubai. Jeff prepares a carefully crafted itinerary that tells a story during the entire trip culminating in a stop at the foot of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. While explaining how each stop and event they experienced during the trip thus far meant something and symbolized an aspect of their relationship, Jeff gave a secret hand signal to a photographer that he hired to be appear incognito and capture the most important moment of their lives. As he got down on one knee and her eyes filled with curiosity and suddenly excitement as she realized what was happening, Gilda gleefully said yes!

    The next chapter in their love story will be written on November 11th, 2017 as they both take vows to continue to love, cherish, support, and grow together. They hope you'll be a part of the day's events and celebrations.
