Have you ever met a couple so joyful, happy, exuberant about life that you just felt energized every time you were around them? Have you ever been around a couple that had so much zest for life it made you randomly salsa?
R & J are this couple and I had the honor and privilege of being their day of coordinator. Their wedding was set in a large church with beautiful sprawling grounds where you could take gorgeous outdoor pictures. The inside of the church is bright and airy that was welcoming and open.
The bride and groom were relaxed and at ease the whole day, and you can tell by their pictures. They had fun and made wise cracking jokes, they were constantly laughing and smiling (they are like this even not on their wedding day). Honestly my jaw hurt by the end of the night.
All their friends and family helped with any details such as ushering, manning the gift table, decorating the church and reception area. A close friend even made the bride's wedding dress!! It was a loud, fun and involved family affair.
The ceremony was sweet,loving and tissue worthy. Immediately following the ceremony was a reception, or really a PAR - TAY! This was a dry wedding but this did not stop people from salsa dancing even at “cocktail hour.”
The highlight of the wedding was la hora loca, where the guests got fun props the music was playing loud and everyone was on the dance floor, and I mean everyone. It was an hour of intense music and it was a blast! Even after la hora loca people were on the dance floor, the guests literally danced the night away until the venue had to clean up and close up (and I emphasize again, this was a dry wedding). In a future post I’ll talk about creative ways to have a dry wedding.
I definitely think the personalities of the bride and groom made this wedding incredibly fun. They made the whole atmosphere of the wedding feel relaxed and inviting. The wedding was filled with love and laughter. The bride and groom are definitely one of those couples you know they love their guests and that everyone of their guests loves them abundantly.
