Cary wasn’t looking for Romance when she 1st encountered Julio at a Wedding Reception. Cary wouldn’t have even imagined in all the years she waited that her true love, her soul mate was right in front of her. Julio didn’t even think he could be staring at his future wife. A lady relative of Julio’s words to Cary on that night was like the fairy god mother from Cinderella. The lady asked Cary to please take a picture with Julio,her exact words were ” You never know you might end up together”. Cary took the picture and that picture remains today “A True Love- Soul Mates” ! Since that day, they haven’t spent one day apart. Who would have known that today Cary & Julio would be husband and wife. Cary’s fairy tale wedding is a dream come true, a true love story!

With the heat on Miami, the set-up begun very early, Cary’s beautiful daughter Karina flew down from NYC and had a very special role in the wedding. Karina away the Bride to the Groom and presented the rings. Julio’s Long time friend Pedro was flown in as a surprise for Julio on the night before. Pedro was the DJ and he was the life of the party, it was a blast! From the Electric Slide dance, to the Macarena, Salsa and Reggeaton, Pedro was the lead in a circle of ladies and had everyone dancing, including me. Although the wedding was Exclusive to only 50 guests, this intimate wedding was down to the last detail perfect!

TRUE LOVE Wedding Inspiration Board “The Wedding Decor & Details”…
The colors selected were Blush, Taupe, Ivory and Gold. The Cake was a gift and done by Julio’s niece who did a fantastic job, and OMG was it delicious! The cake was made of two tiers round fondant done in blush tone, with a Vintage Brooch placed on fondant Bow. The Cake had 2 tiers of different flavors, the top tier was butter cream, and the bottom tier was Carrot Cake. Awesome combination! The guests were given both flavors with a scoop of Ice Cream. The cake topper was the Bride and Grooms Monogram. Two tents were used to decorate the outside, one for the guests Table and the other for the Bartender and Buffet Table. The tent was decorated with Chinese lanterns in different sizes and shades of Ivory, White and Mocha. This is a true love wedding, the ceremony was the most romantic! The ceremony was performed in the gazebo which was decorated very simple with lighted rope and garlands of roses in ivory and blush tones framed the right and left side of the gazebo. For Elegance, a crystal chandelier was placed in the center of the Gazebo, and when the night came, it was very romantic. The wedding officiant was also a gift to the Bride and Groom, which was performed by the Brides Cousin who also drove down from Tampa with Cary’s Godfather. The love they share is so special they decided to do incorporate the sand unity ceremony. The sand unity was special because the sand represented Julio’s roots, Varadero Beach in Cuba. Cary then placed a candle in the center of the sand which Julio lit, representing the unity and love they share with one another. The Tables were dressed in Taupe Poly Linen with an Ivory Organza designed Overlay. Gold Chivalry Chairs with Silk Ivory Cushions added elegance and romantic feel. The Flowers were beautiful! Tall glass cylinder filled with Moss and the top of the centerpiece had Ivory toned flowers & Roses with accented crystal beads. A Taupe ribbon was wrapped around the glass cylinder with a crystal like brooch. Very Elegant and simple!
The views of the lake were breathtaking, and Cary & Julio broke away into this cute little Pedal Canoe which was decorated with two white wedding bells in the front. The couple strolled our of the ceremony to the sound if “En El Mar La Vida es Mas Sabrosa”. The Bride and Groom took a little tour down the lake pedaling and sharing a glass of champagne as husband and wife. Alan Phillip was the photographer contracted for this wedding, they did an amazing job, both photographers were very attentive to the Bride and Groom and made sure no detail was left behind, highly recommended and affordable. The Bride and Groom received a special gift from the wedding Officiant “Cousin” and God-Father. They gave the Bride and Groom a beautiful set of two Gold Etched Glasses for the Toast. I thought that it was such and exclusive and beautiful thought and I had to look for them online, because they were spectacular!
During the Reception, Julio’s Family as a gift to the Bride and Groom hired the services of a special singer performer “Tachuela” who was very entertaining and made everyone laugh. Cary’s mother and Family also as a gift to the Bride and Groom hired a Mariachi crew, and it was very romantic. This Wedding was fantastic, a True Love Wedding!
Special Thanks to Cary & Julio for letting me a part of your special day, I wish you both the best, today is just the start of a new beginning full of love, adventure and memories to last a lifetime!
