Real Weddings: Gadiel Valentin and Alexis Perez
In Puerto Rico's wedding industry, when one of ours gets married, we are ecstatic, imagine when two of our own get married to each other, well, its an all out celebration!
Gadiel and Alexis met through work, funny enough it all started through a Facebook message when one of Alexi's friends was going to get married. The couple, who got engaged in Costa Rica, found the wedding planning process to be a bit tough. Since they both work in the wedding industry, finding a date that would work for both of them proved to be a challenge, but once they settled on a date it was full steam ahead. Being part of the local wedding industry, they assembled a team of the best wedding vendors, and left it all in their hands except on thing, the decor. Both Gadiel and Alexis are decorators, so creating a space that not only represented their individual taste, but their love for each other was of the upmost importance.
From Gadiel...The decor was a true representation of the both of us. Our main colors were blue (Alexi's favorite) and yellow (my favorite). We combined it with some touched of green to add a touch of nature and gold for a metallic touch. This combination created a masculine and elegant atmosphere.
When it came to the big day they only had one thing in mind, they wanted it to be a celebration of love, not only for the two of them, but for all their family and friends. With an intimate group in the room, Gadiel and Alexis said their I do's in an emotional ceremony, followed by a night of dancing and celebrating Love.
