Real Wedding: Vanessa Velez and Enuel Viera

cover Happy Friday!!!

We are in Miami enjoying the fabulous weather, so we hope you are all getting ready to enjoy your weekends as well. But first we need to follow up on Wednesdays beautiful couple. Just a little refresher, Vanessa and Enuel married 5 years ago and made a promise to each other to renew their vows every 5 years...how romantic right?!? Well this year was their first vow renewal and they went all out, especially since they had their gorgeous daughter Emma to celebrate with.

The bride drew inspiration from some of her favorite themes and created a fairytale fun ceremony and reception full of color, joy but most importantly LOVE! Since the couple are both in the wedding industry their colleagues have become some of their closest friend so they made sure to have them involved in everything from the wedding party to using them as vendors by having multiple photographers and decorators, making sure no one was left out. 

From the Bride...Our theme was centered around Gatsby & Carnivals. We created a dress code, and used Appy Couple so everyone could be on the same page with the theme and clothes. It was a great way for everyone to have fun with their costumes and our guest where amazing...they went all out! Our favorite look of the night went to our friend Yamilette Arana, she is a photographer as well and she looked so AMAZING! Also our cake designer Maricel Morales...she was HOT! 

The bridesmaids and my wardrobe where all me, I chose different dresses and the girls decided which one they wanted. I wanted them all to be different and sexy. We spent a lot of time on this and all the girls wore the same shoes to tie it together.

The ceremony, it was just magical to me. Under those amazing Chandelliers at the ballroom I truly felt like a princess. And as Enuel read his amazing vows I just couldn't keep it together, and after I finished reading my vows and looked around the room everyone was crying. And I knew that they could feel it, the love that was in that room and that to me was something I will never forget.

For the recpetion we wanted to go all into the prohibition era theme, so once the ceremony was over we gave everyone instruments and danced and singed our way through the lobby. We decided to have shots as the toast for everyone as they entered the room. We also had a Whiskey & Champagne as our Signature Drinks to make it all fancy. We had a Carnival themed dessert bar with different kinds of popcorns, cotton candy, sweets and Devil's Chocolate Cake.
From the Groom... I had three moments I will never forget, seeing Emma our daughter for the first time and then seeing my beautiful wife. We decided to do a first look and it was honestly the best moment. She obviously looked amazing. And also reading our vows to each other and feeling so much love from everyone.
