We had the amazing pleasure of being contacted by Dianna Darsney to coordinate her and Ricardo’s wedding. Since the day I met with this couple there was a special connection. Ricardo was sweet with a huge smile to light up any room. Dianna was vibrant, full of life and I felt like I had known her my whole life. In speaking with them, they wanted a small wedding but with lots of little details to make it all so very special. This couple was definitely different, she is American but fluent in Spanish and he is Peruvian. You would not have imagined what a great combo these two made. At the time Ricardo was living in Peru and Diana was traveling from Peru to different parts of the world as her job had required her to do. They decided on Miami b/c it was close to everyone to attend, from family and friends. It was the perfect medium, just as they were. We were hired to do DOC for them, and kept well in touch over email with Dianna. I loved writing to her b/c she would always tell me all the details she was working on, but I always felt like she was talking to me. Her emails made me smile and feel like we were in the same room. Diana just had that amazing touch, no wonder Ricardo feel so in love with her.
The day of their wedding, was breathe taking in so many ways. Dianna looked absolutely STUNNING! Ricardo, extremely handsome and we have the pictures to prove it!! Both the ceremony and reception were held at the beautiful Spanish Monastery. This is an amazing location that exudes such vintage and elegance. The ceremony area was in the garden and was so quaint.
The reception area looked amazing with all the guest tables in crinkled pin tuck navy satin linens and gold chivari chairs to contrast the deep rich color. The floral’s in high and low vases, looked exquisite in the open ballroom. They were comprised of different fuchsia colors of roses, peony’s, and orchids.
Our favorite part of the night had to be when Ricardo serenaded his beautiful wife. I have to admit, I always get nervous when a man serenades his wife in front of all the guests and hoping his voice comes out amazing, but Ricardo can sing. I want to say he sound a lot like Marc Anthony. We even melted as he sang a love song to his wife. lol!
Dianna & Ricardo: Thank you for giving us the opportunity to make your day special! It was our pleasure and good luck in Africa!!!
