How do I start and even express myself about this wedding, which I was not only honored to be part of but also enjoyed whole heartedly! A few years ago, I had the amazing pleasure of marrying Vanessa & Erick which just happen to be Alyssa’s sister and Jose’s best friend. Fast forward a few years, Jose popped the question and now Erick and Jose are not only best friends but also family. Maritere the brides’ mom, was a very intricate part of the planning for both her girls and boy did we always have a blast at all our meetings!
In designing Alyssa’s wedding, she was first very laid back, calm and collected but a few weeks before the wedding she really got involved and turned up the pace. She chose some beautiful plum and eggplant tones, with some slight touches of burgundy for an amazing contrast. The ceremony was held at the beautiful St. Hugh Catholic Church and reception at the historic Douglas Entrance in Coral Gables. The linens were custom made triple pintuck, which looked so modern and elegant! We used mahogany chivari chairs and gold cushions and of course purple up lighting to give it the final amazing touch!
My favorite part of the night had to be when the bride/groom and entire bridal party used masks and fun giveaways to start their hora loca. It was so much fun and the crowd really loved that is was them who started festivities!
Alyssa & Jose: Thank you so very much for allowing me to part of yet another amazing family moment! Both you and your families are awesome and feel so blessed to know you!! May God bless your marriage FOREVER and continue sending you an abundance of blessings. Love you both!! Xoxoxo
