Lauren & J.C.
{A Fairytale Wedding }

Ok!Ok! So I know I've taken forever to post about this Gorgeous Wedding but I've been super busy since I got back from my trip (that's what happens when you're gone for a week in this business). But to make it up I'm gonna blog about it with lots of pics - so much to tell!

November 29th, 2008 was a Perfect Day!
I wouldn't describe it otherwise. To begin with, we couldn't have asked for better weather. I went very early in the morning to The Four Seasons and met the beautiful bride to pick up the Pastelitos she was going to give her guests as a "Midnight Snack". She had been up all night along with her MOH's assembling the boxes and stuffing them with the yummy cuban treats. In the end, a bride always wants to make sure everything is perfect for her Big Day. And it was.

Lauren & J.C. had a Wine themed Wedding and everything was perfectly coordinated. It made it so personal and special to them.


We arrived at The Rusty Pelican to set-up all the DIY items and other details.
After the linens were set-up, we began placing all the table numbers.

The table numbers (made by the bride) were Wine bottles.

These beautiful copper chargers accented the tables
and still made room for 10 people.
The Menus (also made by the bride) which displayed their monogram
had a copper metallic backing that complimented the chargers.

Then on to the favors...

The favors were wine bottle stoppers
in brown organza bags with a "Thank you"
tag attached.

The Sign-in Table

The DIY Unity Candle was placed on
the right side.

On the right side, the bride & groom
displayed 3 of their favorite E-pics.

On the left side, their original sign-in idea.
Guests signed wine bottles with copper metallic pens.
Lauren & J.C. will drink these bottles on each anniversary.
I loved the idea! =)

The placecards were held by corks.
Everyone liked them!


After setting up all the DIY items and other details at The Rusty Pelican, I headed off to St. Agnes Catholic Church in Key Biscayne. Beautiful Church! There were 2 white & green but gorgeous [lauren ;)] arrangements in the altar and green pomanders all along the aisle.

Guests started arriving very early. This came as a surprise since brides are usually worried that guests won't make it on time for the Ceremony but not this crowd. :) When everyone was already settled inside, the bridal party and the bride's limo arrived.

Wow! When I saw Lauren.... stunning!!!! She looked so glamorous, radiant and just happy! Then I knew that she would enjoy every single moment to the fullest and make that day unforgettable.

We got the processional ready and once everyone stood up for her entrance, Lauren made her way down the aisle with a very emotional and loving Father. It was so sweet!


Back at the Rusty Pelican, everything was ready for the Cocktail Hour & Reception.
The Cocktail Hour centerpiece were also made by the crafty Lauren.

They were cylinders filled with green grapes, water and a floating candles.
The cylinders had the couple's monogram wrapped with a brown ribbon.


Inside the Ballroom, the Decor was amazing!
Ana from ABCovers did such a great job, the beautiful Centerpieces were provided by Elsa from Elegant Bodas and the lighting by DJ Ubi just completed the whole look.


That room was glowing!
The GOBO on the dancefloor made such an impact
when you walked in.

After the introductions were made, it was time for the
new Mr. & Mrs. to share their first dance.

Their first dance was so romantic!
"I'll be there" by Mariah Carey

Then Lauren shared a dance with her dad...

And J.C. with his mom...

The toasts by BM's and MOH's was right after that.

Those speeched had everybody laughing! =)
Here's a pic of the Bouquet Toss:

And the garter removal:

Lauren & J.C. had a wonderful time!
They danced all night and also shared time
with their guests.

No need to mention that the Dancefloor
was packed all night!
(DJ Evelio was awesome!)

This one sure deserves its own section.
That cake was definitely a piece of art created by Rosie
from Elegant Temptations.

The design was so original and creative!

The stand was created with plexiglass and had
wine bottle corks inside.

It looked gorgeous.

The topper - a wine bottle in a bucket.
Lauren and J.C. - It was a pleasure to be part of such an amazing day.
I'm glad that you enjoyed it to the fullest and now cherish great memories!
I wish you the best on the many years to come.
