What I would’ve given to attend this celebration. From a vivant timbalero player, to Spanish guitarists, to specialty cocktails followed by fresh beignets and cafe au lait, every moment is memorable. It’s a marriage made for sharing and Pezz Photo captured it all right here!
From the beautiful Bride… Jon and I both come from big crazy families with thick accents. His side happens to be Louisiana Cajun while mine comes from Argentina. We celebrated this blending of cultures through music and food. A classic Spanish guitarist performed during our cocktail hour where bartenders served up specialty cocktails named “La Latina” (a pomegranate margarita) and “El Gringo” (a whiskey on the rocks). After dinner, a timbalero took the stage drumming in harmony with our DJ who played salsa and merengue. Once the dance floor was packed we threw a mini New Orleans Mardi Gras. Within minutes the entire room was parading around with umbrellas, masks, hats, beads and feather boas. We even served fresh beignets and cafe au lait.
I always knew I wanted to create a classic, elegant and romantic atmosphere, but my specific décor was inspired by my dress. When I picked a 1920′s style Lazaro gown with layers of ruffles and vintage-inspired embroidery, I knew I had to go a little Gatsby. I picked a classic black and ivory color scheme with metallic accents and tons of candles to help the room sparkle. Our escort cards and menus used Art Deco fonts and geometric patterns. My favorite décor element was our shiny black vinyl dance floor.
Hire the best photographer and videographer you can afford, and do your best to get to know them before the big day. These professionals are with you all day! You want them to be experienced, calm under pressure and willing to take charge. I know they’re expensive when they’re good… but trust me, they’re well worth it!
