Leydiana + Luis 7.25.09

Leydiana and Luis were married at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Union City and their fabulous reception was held at The Bethwood in Totowa, NJ. These 2 love birds have been together since they were in high school!
Now, years later and their love is still palpable ... they celebrated with their friends and family becoming husband and wife and it truly was a pleasure to be a part of their big day...

After working on a few inspiration boards for the couple, the bride chose a high-contrast palette of buttercup- yellow, black and white, and the effects of silver and contemporary touches of damask--certainly chic! I think you all know how obsessed I am with damask and planning Leydiana's and Luis' wedding sure made me feel like a kid in a candy store!

Here I am with the Happy Couple. Thanks to Josh Lynn for taking this photo with my crappy camera =)
Ana got a take at me holding the Bride and Groom bears. Leydiana's Bride bear was wearing the very first dress Leydiana wore as a baby. What a sweet memory to add to your wedding day!

The Wedding Cake – a three-tiered round coconut-filled cake. Soft yellow, hand created anemones and stenciled damask patterns adorned each tier. It was so yummy, thanks to our friend Buddy Valastro "Cake Boss" at Carlos Bakery, Hoboken, NJ.

We at FYEP lent our distinct creativity and touch of glitz to the florals, design and décor. The décor scheme featured lots of candlelight that draped the setting with an intimate glow. We topped dinner tables, bar area and cake table with candles. Half of the tables had a giant floater dish filled with water and floating gerberas and candles, while the other half consisted of 3 tall lit-up cylinder vases with submerged yellow orchids and floating candles-both served as creative alternatives to traditional floral centerpieces.

I love seeing a wedding whose elements are special to the couple; whether it's celebrating at a location special to them, including family tradition or honoring heritage... I think making the event personal is really special... Leydiana's mom had always envisioned her wedding-since Leydiana was a little girl and she always dreamt of Leydiana having her wedding reception at The Bethwood. What a beautiful and lasting memory for Leydiana's parents.

The entire occasion was a reflection of love, friendship and family. Above all, the couple wanted their guests to enjoy themselves. Leydiana and Luis successfully crafted an event that was both formal and fun. From the fabulous and fun Photobooth by Josh Lynn and NJPhotobooths and the beautifully presented sweet and tempting Candy Buffet by For Your Event Planning to the elaborate ice sculptures and signature drinks, every element came together to set a mood of elegance.

A big thanks to the wonderful vendors that made this wedding a truly memorable one!

Marni the Cardbox looked fantabulous! Exactly what i had visioned and most importantly the bride, she was so happy with how it complemented the entire design...you're an artist!

Beautifully designed cake! Happy to see both of you together. Heard a lot about Seattle Wedding venues from my colleagues and thinking to suggest the same to my sister's friend for her first anniversary party. She wants to celebrate her special day with friends and family. Hope she likes my suggestion and all her wishes to enjoy the event comes true.
