Two Rogers boutiques help couple, cultures come together
Andrea Wilson and Rodrigo Vasquez became husband and wife July 28 at the Lake Harriet Rose Garden in Minneapolis.
That’s where the two went on their first date seven years ago. This non-traditional American girl from Maple Grove with a passion for learning about languages and cultures from a very young age, and this man from Mexico City, Mexico who has always been driven to learn and is a quick study of other languages, spent six hours walking around the park and talking.
Despite their differences they found striking similarities between themselves and an intriguing number of shared interests.
It was bilingual wedding vows that brought these two kindred spirits together forever last month, and it was two Rogers shops that helped accentuate their passions for each other and their cultural heritage. One was the Antique Mall of Rogers. The other was Vintage Jewelry Connection. See more in Editor Jim Boyle’s Star News story.
