A CAYMAN ISLANDS WEDDING OF ELEGANCE & ROMANCE: MARIANA & JOE, 2ND ANNUAL “WIN A WEDDING” COUPLE

Our team has been eagerly awaiting Mariana & Joe’s big day ever since they were announced the winners of our second annual Win A Wedding couple this past year. The couple opted for a minimalist style of décor, very clean, modern, utterly romantic, and effortlessly chic. The entire team at Celebrations wishes this beautiful couple everlasting love, joy, happiness and never-ending laughter.  The entire day was perfectly coordinated by our Celebrations team to make our couple’s dream wedding come true!

The groom donned a sleek tux, looking ever-so-prepared for the BIG DAY ahead while the bride was glowing in her gorgeous white Ferré Sposa gown with a simple yet elegant bouquet by our floral department of white Calla Lilies and satin white ribbon tied along the stems.

The bridesmaids were glowing in modern elegance, wearing long soft gowns in black to highlight the Bride. Huge thanks goes out to The Cake Studio for contributing their amazing talents to create a sleek black and white cake to top the complimenting cupcake tower.

Bride:

“Joe and I met at work more than three years ago.  He swears it was love at first sight. At midnight on January 1, 2017, after three years of dating, having formed a bond making us inseparable and best friends, Joe asked me if I would marry him. We were surrounded by family and friends and lots of love and laughter which perfectly summed up our life together to that date. Surprised and absolutely elated, I said YES.

We know that we are both blessed to be marrying the person we call our best friend. We have grown in the last three years to be a strong team facing everything together and believing that there is nothing we, together, cannot accomplish.

 

Our appreciation for each other and what we have together comes not only in the big picture moments when we realize how rare it is to find someone in the world who makes you a better person and how lucky we are to have discovered this but also in the small moments daily when we laugh together or push each other to achieve things we would not otherwise be able to do alone.

I am constantly trying to make Joe laugh.  His laugh and sense of humor is absolutely one of my favorite things about him!

 

I am beyond excited for our wedding and to celebrate with our closest friends and family.  I have been to weddings involving Celebrations and the attention to detail, creativity and professionalism is unmatched. We are entering the contest because we would love to have Celebrations be a part of our day.  You are the best at creating dream-like and breath-taking environments for weddings and that is what we hope to capture for ours.”

 

The stunning wedding took place at Grand Old House in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, a waterfront venue with the Island’s most spectacular sunset views – simply serene, the perfect venue to compliment their wedding style and decor! The couple opted to celebrate their nuptials with friends and loved ones over a series of festivities during their wedding weekend, including a Red Sail sunset cruise to admire the long weekend fireworks over Grand Cayman’s harbor front.

Another huge thanks goes out to Island Jewellers for assisting the couple in selecting the perfect wedding bands for them.
