Beatriz and Alexis met on the first day of high school band camp. Beatriz was the new girl in school, but the pair hit it off right away. When Alexis asked her out a few months later he made it a grand gesture by organizing a flash mob and serenading her with the Oasis song “Wonderwall”, the first song they had ever jammed out to together. When these high school sweethearts got engaged, they knew they wanted a fun and classic celebration. They chose The Retreat at Bradley’s Pond for its spacious ballroom and gorgeous pondside garden, the perfect spot for their traditional Jewish ceremony.
Beatriz was absolutely beautiful in her traditional A-line gown with its lacy overlay, full sheer sleeves and high illusion neckline. She paired it with a long veil and delicate pearl teardrop earrings. Her bridesmaids wore pale pink gowns, each with a different style to highlight each lady’s individual beauty and all the women carried pink and white bouquets of roses and hydrangea with baby’s breath accents. Alexis and his groomsmen were handsome in navy blue suits which they paired with pale pink ties and white rose and baby’s breath boutonnières.
The reception space was decked out in pink, blush and gold, the tablescapes featuring gold chargers on blush linens. Tall floral centerpieces of white and blush with pops of bright pink added drama to the decor and vintage-inspired accents enhanced the traditional theme. The bride and groom got the party started with their first dance and a traditional good luck Hora before they were treated to speeches and toasts to wish them well. After dinner and a fun night of dancing, Beatriz and Alexis’s guests said goodnight to them with a fanciful sparkler send off. Congratulations Beatriz and Alexis!
