Fun Fact: When Steve wanted to make their relationship “official” he surrendered his heart to her… in a very unique way: Steve (a chef) made a “mountain” of cream puffs. At the very top of that mountain was a white flag…. surrendering his heart to Doreen. This mountain of cream puffs was delivered to Doreen’s work. Tooo cute and romantic!!
Most Memorable Moment: The whole night… it was just a good vibe all around. 40 of Steve and Doreen’s closest friends and family were there to support them in the beginning of their new life together.
When I first met Doreen back in April I knew her wedding to Steve was going to be memorable… the way she spoke of Steve and their time together, as well as how she wanted her wedding to be “just a big dinner party with the ones we love”
Well what you don’t know is Doreen and Steve are both in “the industry” so letting go was a key factor in having fun for the day. All of their vendors pulled together wonderfully for a last minute rain “change of plans.” The ceremony took place upstairs above the tasting room in a glowing alter lit with lanterns. After sipping signature cocktails guests went downstairs to Doreen’s very own designed tables… not ones she had designed for clients… yet something designed for her and Steve. And the rest of the night was a fabulous dinner party… in a wedding dress!
Steve and Doreen: Thanks for bearing the colds of winter with me to take some photos outside! brr! I hope you had a great time in the Caribbean and were able to relax a bit before jumping back into work! I wish you two all the best in the world. You are two people I couldn’t be happier for!
Not just any old pair of Manolo’s… but a feathered pair!
