Cecilia & Brian
Cecilia and Brian were such a fun couple to work with as we were planning their October 8th wedding! Cecilia was a very detail oriented bride that carefully thought through each detail of the day, while Brian was very concerned with the liveliness of the reception. In short, they were a perfect match, and the As You Wish team was thrilled to be a part of their wedding day!
They had a traditional Filipino wedding ceremony at Holy Angels Catholic Church complete with 12 primary sponsors, 4 secondary sponsors, and a bridal party of 15 which included 5 adorable youngsters.
The couple chose vibrant variations of green, orange, and purple to encompass their wedding day. Floral design was done by Daevid's who used elegant cone shaped glass pew markers to line the ceremony aisle with green Fuji mums and spicy orange roses. The bride carried a nosegay style bouquet of green Fuji mums, vendella roses, spicy orange lilies and roses, and purple stock with delicate touches of green hypericum berries. Her maids carried a similar bouquet with the addition of green hydrangea.
Moments before she walked down the aisle the bride was surprised to see her uncle, (who is a priest in the Philippines) had flown in to preform the ceremony. This was such a touching moment to be a part of!!
The groom custom designed their programs
Their reception took place at the Portsmouth Renaissance Hotel, and was accented with gorgeous uplighting courtesy of Blue Steel Pro Lighting which included a gobo design in the likeness of the groom's custom stationary pieces
including the seating chart
They chose a cupcake display in place of traditional tiered wedding cake, with a Patti Cakes cake topper that proudly displayed the groom's favorite past time. At the end of the evening the cupcakes were placed into to go containers for the guests to take home with them. Another thoughtful touch courtesy of our bride Cecilia!
We have seen quite a few variations of the traditional bouquet and garter removal and toss, but this poor groom definitely took home the prize! He needed a little help getting to the bride, but once he did he managed to do just fine!
Guests were also treated to The Traveling Photo Booth
And a delicious french fry and sweet potato fry bar!
Cecilia and Brian were such a fun couple to work with, and we were honored to be a part of their special day!
