Gladys & Alex's Wedding: Revisited

In the Sneak Peak article, I said I would go back and blog about this beautiful Wedding with all the details and lots of pictures. I just didn't want to do it while the new Mr. & Mrs. were still in their Honeymoon because I know they have not been able to see all the pictures.

Behind the Scenes
You always get to see the "pretty" pictures of how everything turned out.
I thought it would be cool if I shared with you pictures from the Set-up process.
This is what it took to achieve the final look that Gladys wanted.

It started early ...

and little by little the rectangular tables were set up ...

Gladys didn't want a traditional set-up so the tables
were arranged perpendicular (in set of twos)

Then on to the terrace ...

to get the Cocktail Hour space ready

Cocktail Hour
Theme: "Garden"

CP's: White Lanterns with Green Votives sorrounded by rocks
(very earthy)

There were the usual hightops

and low tables for elder guests

Table

It was set up in the Entrance hallway with the Escort cards on the left and the Memory candles and Guest Photobook on the right.

The Escort cards were these cute chairs filled
with almonds and wrapped with a pink ribbon.
The Sign read "Please take a seat".

Gladys' "11-15-08" sign so famous from her E-pics
was also incorporated and displayed in the Sign-in Table.

The Memory candles were decorated with roses as well.
I'm sure Gladys' dad was with her the whole day in spirit.


And back to the Banyan Room to get the final look for the Reception.

Votives, Bathroom baskets, table numbers, etc.
Airwick scenter for the Bathrooms =)

The tablecloths were Chocolate Brown with
Douppioni Satin overlays in the same color

The white square plates gave the Reception
a modern touch

Gladys and her mom (Gladys) DIY'd the cutest Cardbox-
wrapped with 3 different patterns, pink & brown ribbon,
and flowers on top.

The Sweetheart table was decorated with 5 white small
vases (provided by Gladys) filled with pink roses
and lit up with flourish pink votives (provided by Gladys).
It looked gorgeous!

The table CP's were a round arrangement full of pink roses
in round white vases (provided by Gladys).

Gladys wanted the Centerpieces to be beautiful, simple yet
elegant and specially easy for her guests to take home.
Everyone complimented them and they were quickly
gone by the end of the night.

These made the room look much more romantic.

Each place setting had a DIY Menu
-beautifully accentuated with a pink ribbon-
tucked into the ivory napkin and the DIY favors
-pink boxes tied with brown ribbon- on top.

Once the Reception started, the Bridal Party was introduced
as well as the new Mr. & Mrs.

And they shared their first dance ...

(Check out how much in love this couple is!)

In the middle of the celebration,
the Candy Buffett was set up by Nani in the Hallway
(after the Escort Cards were taken).


The Candy Buffet Sign was summerged in water...
It looked so cool!

Look at how creatively the pink bags were displayed.

She also had the white "L-O-V-E" trays.

Needless to say, the guests loved it!!!
Here's proof...

And they kept celebrating.

The Dancefloor was always packed - thanks to DJ Evi-
and everyone enjoyed themselves very much!

Specially Gladys, she danced all night!

It was an honor to be a part of this unforgettable Day!

All the details were planned by Gladys & Alex to perfection
and that's exactly how it looked! Hope you too felt invited into
their Wedding with these pictures.

Stay tuned for the Pro-pics by the amazinly talented Miguel Irias.
