Jessica and William

After 9 years Jessica and William FINALLY tied the knot!

About Us

Meet our perfect bride and groom

The Bride

Jessica Peña

I am the happiest girl in the world.  William makes me feel so special and loved. William is the love of my life, my best friend. I don’t think anybody could be happier than I am today. _

The Groom

William Hernandez

Jessica and I first met at work.  I’m sure she must have thought I was strange, especially as at the time I was grinning from ear to ear and gazing at her.  I was immediately stunned by her beauty and stalked her since the day I met her.  We are now inseparable.

Our Love Story

How we fell in love

How we met each other

It was December 2005 when Jessica was at her new job as a court officer in the Bronx.  She was quietly working at her post in the lobby when William entered the building and immediately affixed his eyes on her and made his way over to her.  He used the fact that he was a union delegate to introduce himself but later he said it was “love at first sight.”

Jessica Says...

I thought William’s smile was so bright and he was so kind to me… I wondered why he stared at me the way he did. After we met, he made sure he went out of his way to say hello to me!

Our First Date

We remained friends over the year of 2006 but things moved pretty quickly in July after attending a Bronx Courts Picnic. After the picnic we finally had our first date at New Roc City where we saw a movie and had lunch at Applebee’s.

William Says...

Jessica did NOT waste any time! She knew what she wanted and after our first date she said she wanted to be in a relationship. I was taken aback, but once I tasted her cooking, she reeled me in!

Our Engagement

William finally came to his senses after 8 years and 11 months into the relationship to propose to Jessica. He bought the ring in March 2015 and was thinking of the perfect way to propose. It was then that Jessica was given the opportunity to sing God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch for the Brooklyn Cyclones on June 27, 2015. The plan was after her performance he would pop the question. Unfortunately, the game was rained out and had to be cancelled!  William had arranged for family to be there and knew that it would be very difficult to get everyone together.  Therefore, William invited everyone over to his apartment.  The family then requested that Jessica sing God Bless America at home since she was unable to do so at the game.  After Jessica sang (and while everyone recorded), William came forward and gave his speech, then got down on one knee and proposed!  Jessica was in absolute shock!

Jessica & William Say...

Thank you to everyone for all your love and support!
