Hey all! My wedding was a lovely and wonderful time! I'm not into numerous photo posting, so I've posted our hotel's photographer's photos on our wedsite: kosha.projectwedding.com. Under the section "Stars Over the Sea Wedding Photos", it'll be the second slideshow. We're still currently waiting on our pro-pics and full-length pro-vid. I hope you all enjoy and leave comments in the g-book!
I have a veil, a fascinator, a belt, and of course, shoes! My jewelry is a bracelet and earrings. Still undecided about a necklace.
1) Bracelet: 2) Earrings:
3) Fascinator: 4) Belt:
5) Veil: 6) Shoes:
I want an Old Hollywood look, so my hair and makeup will reflect that. Also, since I'm marrying in Mexico, I wanted a bold red lip (signature of Old Hollywood) to play into the Spanish side of our wedding.
Hair: Reese Witherspoon, Milla Jovovich, unknown
Makeup: Bold red lip, dramatic long lashes (naturally looking), and overall soft makeup. Classic, clean, elegant.
1) Lips: Rosario, Thandie, Beyoncé, Ms. Ebanks, Kelly, Taraji, Zoe, and unknown
2) Eyes: Ashanti, unknown, Megan Fox, etc
3) Overall makeup: Unknowns and Sienna Miller
4) TTD Makeup Ideas: fresh, sunkissed, bronze, golden, rosy, and golden
Hopefully, in my makeup trial in a couple of weeks, we can make it happen!
Our colors are turquoise and gold. I'm trying to fuse beach chic w/o going over the top w/ "beachy" items. It's not my theme, so I have to walk a fine line. To start, my reception tables will be banquet style sort of like these:
Our centerpieces will be based on this arrangement:
Instead of red, we're focusing on turquoise, so our centerpieces will consist of the following:
1) Turquoise colored sea fan: (coral)
2) White peonies: 3) Aqua Orchids:
5) Turquoise Votives (filled w/ water and floating candles):
My wedding will take place in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico at Grand Velas Vallarta Resort and Spa on June 25, 2011, our second anniversary. I'm also on bestdestinationwedding.com/forum so I'll try to post my wedding planning developments as we go along.
Our theme is "Stars Over the Sea" with the colors turquoise/teal and gold. Our wedding will take place on the hotel's gazebo and the reception will be on the beach. I'm aiming for a light, ethereal, romantic, and relaxed atmosphere. There will be lots of candles and hanging lanterns. We're having one table, a banquet style, to add to the intimacy of the evening.
Our ceremony will take place at 5 p.m., which is fairly close to sunset. The reception will start at 7 p.m. We will have a sit-down dinner of 4 courses and of course, a custom-designed cake. More updates as we progress!
