A little about the Bride and Groom and “Our Wedding Day”…
Jason and I went to Elementary school together but we lost touch after grade 8. He found me on Facebook years later, asked me out for coffee and we have been inseparable ever since.
We had a modern, elegant and romantic wedding at a beach front villa with 100 of our closet family and friends. I used Preston Bailey’s book as most of my inspiration for our colour pallet, table decorations, flowers, tree table card display, etc. We used silver linens with bright punches of fuschia, purple and green for our floral arrangements. We liked the idea of having bright colours to compliment the lush Mexican scenery. Our bridesmaid wore watermelon one shoulder dresses and the groomsmen wore beige suits with pink ties.
There were some elements at our wedding that had a special meaning to us. Jason wore my late grandfather’s cufflinks, we used Jason’s late grandfather’s Tallis at the top of our Chuppah, and I had Swarovski crystal butterflies to put in my bouquet in honour of my aunt who passed away. I wore a heart necklace that was given to me from my parents. It is a family tradition that they started when my sister was married.
We had a few details from our wedding that were unique. The wedding favors were personalized candies that were from Australia which we bottled in old fashion styled candy jars. For our Guest Sign-In book, guests were able to capture and print memorable pictures with a sticker Polaroid Pogo camera and put them with a personal greeting in our book. We wanted a Menu that was unique and different so with the help of Plush catering we were able to create a menu that was accommodating to our guest but have a special twist on it. Combining Mexican and Asian flavours, our food satisfied everyone’s pallets and our guests still rave about it today. After our cake cutting, we had huge fireworks display over the ocean finished off with a giant firework heart that said “V and J”. It was the most amazing thing we, along with our guests had ever seen.
Overall, our wedding was more than we could have ever imagined. It was such a magical night and we had a great time celebrating with our close family and friends in such a beautiful location.
