Blush and Blue Bliss At The Don Cesar Hotel

Rachel & Joseph

Rachel dreamed of having a fairytale wedding day since she was little—especially with the perfectly gorgeous outdoor backdrop. UNIQUE Weddings and Events planned her Blush and Blue Bliss At The Don Cesar Hotel. At the same time, Demutiis Photography captured all the special moments from the day. We can’t wait to show you the inside look of this beautiful wedding.

Getting Ready

Family and friends gathered on the morning of the big day. The wedding party all wore matching floral robes while getting ready. They all had their hair done up into a low-style bun. The bride has an added wedding hairband to top off the look.  After that, her mother helped zip her up into her beautiful white gown, and the long veil was placed on her head. In addition the bouquet, she held, was put together with pastel pink and purple flowers, along with white flowers and greenery to go throughout. Her bridesmaid wore dusty rose-colored dresses. Rachel and her bridal party looked stunning as they took pictures together before the ceremony. As for Joseph he went with a blue striped suit and paired it with a pink bow tie to match the pretty in-pink theme.

First Looks

Traditionally, the big reveal happens as you walk down the aisle, but a growing number of couples opt to have a first look. As Joseph has his back turned, Rachel walks up behind him and prepares for the reveal. He turns and the pure look of awe in his eyes as he sees his future wife is priceless. They take a moment to themselves and enjoy how far they’ve come in their love story.

Down the aisle

The wedding ceremony is the heart of your wedding day. It’s the moment you pledge your love and embark on a new chapter together. Guests file into their seats at The Cathedral Church of St Peter and prepare to witness the marriage of Rachel and Joseph. Then when the room is silent, everyone stands as Rachel is escorted down the aisle by her father. Joseph can’t hold back tears as he watches his future wife walk towards him. Her father sends her off in good hands and the ceremony begins. In the end, they share a kiss and walk out hand in hand as husband and wife.

Pink Dreams Reception

The happy couple leaves the church in style and rides to their wedding reception in a vintage red Mustang. Then upon entering the ballroom at the Don Cesar, Rachel is shocked to see her vision come to life. With tables draped in pink linens and tables topped with different shades of pink pastel flowers, it was everything she dreamed of. In addition, a 5 layer cake was made and decorated with the same colored flowers displayed throughout the room. We provided Gold Chiavari Barstools with Ivory pads, White Cosmo Bars, and Folding Tables. As well as, the Gold Clear Lace Chargers and the Gold Alpine Leaf Chargers that are placed on the tables. The couple danced the night away and enjoyed celebrating their love with all the people closest to them.
