raquel and albert are longtime friends of mine. i could not have been happier to plan their wedding. raquel and i spoke for years about this day. her dream was a day filled with love, purple hues, and plenty of pictures. the 18 person court alone was enough to startle anyone assisting with the wedding. we had so much fun at the rehearsal! the girls got ready at the dadeland marriot. they came down to the ballroom before leaving for the church to check out the site. it was perfect! all of the details that raquel requested were executed with style. the ceremony took place at st. thomas the apostle. since it was just before christmas, the church was already decorated beautifully with christmas trees and wreaths . the highlight of the cocktail hour was the candy station. by the end of the night, not one piece of candy was left! the reception was filled with laughter and great music. guests enjoyed their dinner, a chocolate fountain, a martini bar, and a coffee bar. we could not be more excited that this day finally came! we love you both more than you will ever know!
