Our team walked back in time for this 50’s retro glam wedding at The Ritz Carlton Reserve in Dorado, Puerto Rico. With their Latin heritage and the beautiful views from this destination, #CeciBride Tadina, and her fiance Omar brought an authentic flair to the classic beachfront event. Rich red tones and natural materials decorated their special day with clean and modern flourishes.
At the ceremony, guests gathered in an open green space along the ocean. A grand floral covered circle stood at the altar with lush greenery and gold finishes. The bride walked down the aisle in an elegant ruffled taffeta gown. The natural wood chairs and simple details carried a breezy feel throughout the event.
As guests entered the reception, they were surrounded by rich red lounge areas and lush plants with cascading red flowers hanging from the ceiling. Rattan lanterns of all shapes and sizes floated above the tables and golden chairs that sat around the dance floor which added warmth to this bright, fresh space. The palm patterned high tables provided a bold tropical touch to the relaxing atmosphere. Tall modern frames brought attention to the floral centerpieces with a variety of luxuriant red and green blooms.
Guests danced into the evening under the glow of the candles and lanterns overhead. A simply stunning red and white, two-toned cake was adorned with our custom monogram in a metallic acrylic cake topper. Gold leaf flecked the tiers and several flowers finished this statement dessert. Family and friends had a wonderful time celebrating the marriage of Tadina and Omar in this beautiful setting that felt like paradise.
