Stephania and Jon wanted to fuse the traditional American wedding with a little Latin spice from Venezuela. What made it extra special was how they incorporated the Venezuelan tradition of the “Hora Loca” into their wedding reception.
We had no decor, only the crashing waves and stormy skies. Our friend and officiant started the ceremony with a reading of a poem JRR Tolkien wrote for his wife.
Melanie and Jake had a Elven, Celtic, and Viking inspired wedding with incredible DIY elements. Plus, their wedding party wielded weapons instead of floral bouquets!
The theme was The Nightmare Before Christmas and the general color scheme was white, black, and pink. We did the Tasting of the Four Elements as our ritual and took a celebratory shot after to seal the deal.
Our wedding was a Moonrise Kingdom-themed epic night in which we celebrated everything and everyone we love. My family is from Cuba and Ian is half Cuban and half American, so we did a special Cuban Cafecito with Tata (my grandmother) ceremony as our “Unity Ceremony.”
We had a big wedding planned. We had bridesmaids and everything! But during the pandemic… We decided to just take off without telling anyone and get married. We used nature as our decoration and it was more perfect than the big wedding we were planning ever could have been.
