At our very first design appointment, Keith told me all about how they met and how he proposed. I hope he doesn't kill me for saying it: but he is a romantic. :-) And I knew we had to incorporate their "story" into their wedding design. I would call this one a ribbons and romance theme. Ribbons because, well - they are fun. And we had a lot of them - as the ceremony backdrop, on the tables, and accenting the bride & groom's chairs. Romance because it was all about their love journey (I know that sounds cheesy, but I don't know how else to say it). I mentioned a couple of things about their journey in the picture captions below.
And speaking of the pictures: these are brought to you courtesy of Heather Curiel. Heather was super easy to work with and did a fantastic job capturing the feel of the day. I loved working with her! I wish I had pictures of their engagement session. It was STUNNING.
|I think these guys had way to much fun with the ribbon backdrop :-P|
|Actual sand from their families' native countries was used in the sand ceremony. Meaningful, to say the least.|
|The ceremony has as a garden feel because parks played a big part of their courtship :-)|
|Candles played a key role in Keith's proposal; therefore, we decided to use them as part of the escort cards.|
