Thoughts kept running through my head..."will they like it?", "will they like me?", "how will it all go?"
But as soon as I saw them smiling from ear to ear and met with them the first time, I felt at ease. I planned the wedding via phone, email and text with the bride's mother as Ana & Eze spend most of their time in Argentina. The entire family (though 50% didn't speak english) smiled, laughed and did I mention PARTIED until 2am.
The ceremony was soft and romantic with blush and white blooms. The bride carried a white bouquet that accented her stunning gown with perfection. The couple said "I DO" under billowing white draping and lovely florals to coordinate with the soft ceremony details. The backdrop was the seas of the Gulf of Mexico, which as you can see are pretty spectacular!
From the moment they arrived at the reception, it was a PARTY! Drinks were flowing and the band was ready to go! Guests dined on delicious cuisine and were treated to exemplary service, then opened up the dance floor to really start the celebration!
Through out the whole night, the feeling of family was overwhelming. People traveled from all over the world to come together to celebrate the love of Anna & Eze, and of their son who was of course by their side. It was a true reminder that weddings are about family, and that is exactly what a marriage should be based on.
