Trini and Adam planned a romantic summer wedding with a soft color palette of pale greens and white and the natural beauty of their outdoor ceremony space enhanced the pastoral feel of the day. As Trini’s father watched from heaven, she walked down the aisle on her brother’s arm towards Adam, the love of her life. The two exchanged their vows beside an arbor draped with flowing white fabric and lush greenery and after their first kiss as husband and wife, they had fun posing for portraits with their wedding party. Vibrant green lawns, leafy trees and abundant sunshine made the perfect backdrop for a ceremony filled with love, laughter and a bride and groom who could not stop smiling!
Trini was radiant in her lace A-line gown with its sweetheart neckline and illusion sleeves. She finished her look with her grandma’s accessories, which she pulled from a box marked “the very important box” that she had made to hold all of the significant details of the day. The rings, the marriage license and even an invitation all resided in the box. Trini’s bridesmaids wore flowing gowns in a pale shade of dusty green that were perfect for the day’s modern, monochromatic styling and all of the ladies carried bouquets of delicate white florals with eucalyptus accents. Adam and his groomsmen, including his twin brother as best man, were dashing in light gray suits and cream colored ties.
At the reception, tables were set with cream colored linens and beige napkins which highlighted the centerpieces of lush greenery and crisp white florals. Wooden accents brought a rustic touch to the decor and wine bottles served as delicious table markers. Trini and Adam got the party started with their first dance to “Life is Better With You” by Michael Franti and later, Adam shared a special dance with his mom and Trini danced with her brother as a video of an eight-year-old Trini dancing with her father played behind them. It was a beautiful way to honor her dad. After dinner, in lieu of a traditional cake, guests were treated to giant cookies baked with love by the crew at the Borgia High School cafeteria. They were the bride’s favorite when she was growing up. As the sun went down, guests kept the dance floor rocking to celebrate the newlyweds. Congratulations Trini and Adam!
