After fine tuning the many many themes and working late late nights, the day has finally come and its now official, Gabriela and Paul are married!
The inspiration for this wedding came from many places and finally settled on Paul’s love of anything Italian (ie Godfather, mobster-style), Theater (where they met) and a little bit of the Beach (Gabriela’s first choice for her dream wedding). It took us some time to nail it all down, but it all came together nicely with the silver pintuck linen, vases of floating candles in blue water and white beach accents like starfish, birdnest coral and capiz shell.
There were also little surprises all over like the oversized balloon altar arrangement (turns out this was a brilliant idea seeing as though Gabriela is known as the balloon lady in her family, always with balloons in hand at any family celebration). The aqua, cobalt, silver/charcoal colors looked great together when the bride walked down the aisle with her Hot Pink rose bouquet and Dodger Blue ruffle shoes (an absolute surprise to everyone – especially the groom who loves the Boys in Blue). Even their cannoli-surrounded-3-tier cake was in on the WOW factor when it yielded Pink Champagne cake inside its pearlized blue and silver frosting.
My camera is broken, so no personal pictures from me, but beautiful Rosina has given us a little taste. Thank God for professional photographers to capture their celebration, can’t wait to see more!
