Real Weddings: Melissa Martinez and Dave Farrell Armstrong
Today's wedding is simply breathtaking!
The team from Caroline + Ben did an amazing job at capturing every moment and detail of this event...including the couple at the end of the night in their honeymoon suite...now that's dedication!
Our biggest obsession is the butterfly release, such a unique and special touch!
Here is what their fabulous planner Rosalina Torres from Momentus had to say...
From the Wedding Planner...Fist of all, I'm totally in love with this wedding. The elegance and chick style was present in every detail of this amazing event. Dave is from the United States and Mel is from a Phillipine mom and Puertorrican dad. The ceremony was celebrated in The San Juan Cathedral and it kept every Phillipine tradition including the unity candle, veil, rosary, flowers to Virgin Mary, communion, among many other elements. At the exit of the church the bride and groom released some beautiful butterflies and played with them for a couple of minutes. After the ceremony, the wedding planning team escorted every guest to the cocktail area in the interior patio of El Convento Hotel. Everyone enjoyed some good puertorrican music with a duet of cuatro and guitar player provided by Juan Carlos Vega. The reception took place in El Salon Campeche in the same resort. This destination wedding of around 125 guests was fun from beginning to end. Seeing how happy the couple was at the end of the day confirms why I love my job so much!
