Maleni and Tony said “I do” at a private villa in Rosarito, Mexico. They were steps from the Pacific and warm breezes floated in from the ocean as they exchanged vows beside a curtained arbor decked out in greenery and lush florals. A giant “love” sign stood nearby and made the perfect spot for them to capture portraits with their wedding party after their first kiss as husband and wife.
Maleni was stunning in her boho-inspired gown with its deep V neckline and full A-line skirting. She finished her look with a long veil and braided updo, later loosening her flowing locks and topping them with a floral crown for the reception. Her bridesmaids wore shades of blush and pink in different styles and carried bouquets of white roses with accents of greenery. Maleni’s bouquet added blush and pops of burgundy, echoing the design of the reception florals. Tony was dapper in his navy blue suit and pale blush tie and his groomsmen were handsome in gray.
The reception tables were set with clear chargers and grand centerpieces of pink, white and burgundy with plenty of lush greenery. Gold and mirrored accents completed the tablescapes and Maleni and Tony’s sweetheart table was positively breathtaking. The newlyweds sat on a raised platform under an arbor of eucalyptus leaves with luxurious floral arrangements draped across their table and the foot of the platform. Dozens of votive candles cast a romantic glow as the couple was honored with speeches by friends and loved ones. After dinner, guests enjoyed dancing the night away under the stars before sending Maleni and Tony off to start their new life together, sparklers in hand!
