Love & Family
The day began with the Groom, the Groomsmen and his Family. They were so excited and anticipating the moment they gift the groom one of his father's treasures; his father's memory & heart was definitely present in that moment. Cristina & Matthew's son unfortunately came down with the flu, but even on such a special day comes mommy & daddy duties! Dad (the groom) made sure he took his medicine and had his rest beforehand. Meanwhile, the guys enjoyed some drinks & laughter together! Over at Cristina's getting ready was Beauty by Renata glamming up all the girls! There was champagne, confetti, and lovely quotes all throughout the house! Once Cristina's mother helped her put on her beautiful dress from Brides of Florida, the bridesmaids and father of the bride had a first look of the stunning bride! Tears and smiles expected. Their Ceremony took place during sunset, where they shared personal vows about the times they've shared as a couple and their special bond as a family of 3; some more tears and smiles expected! After exiting the Ceremony as a family, we were able to take vantage of a beautiful orange and dark blue sky for newlywed pictures! Over at the orchid-filled reception, designed by M&J Custom Events, guests received the bridal party and the newlyweds with celebratory cheers! They all ate, cheered, cried, laughed, danced, and ate donuts from their adorable donut cake! The bride, groom and their guests ended the night with the traditional, celebratory sparkler exit!
