my busy bride! as a working wife-to-be, a mother, and friend, ivette had so much to do at work that we generally met at her office. planning for this wedding was like an obstacle course set up for an adventure. we had such a blast trying to plan around schedules and children. by the time ivette and I found each other, she had already chosen her venues. the ceremony was at the coral gables congregational church and the reception was at the doral park country club. her rich colors of burnt orange and brown were so beautiful. the theme of the wedding was “the perfect pair”, just like the bridal shower. the favors were pear-shaped salt and pepper shakers. we decorated the ballroom with christmas tree branches and photos of the couple provided by alina m. photography & design. the guests found their names on handmade gold leaves with their table numbers written on flower encrusted paper. the candy station was filled with christmas candies and chocolate. the delicious cake was topped with their initials. it was a perfectly clear day as we celebrated looking over the golf course and pond. the night ended with a petal toss from handcrafted cones that blew the couple off to their honeymoon. ivey & mikey, best wishes!
