Evelyn and Tyrone’s Wintry Wedding Wonderland!
Evelyn and Tyrone finally say “I do”! After ten years of marriage, the couple decided to have the wedding of their dreams on February 17, 2013. February, the month reflecting love, was the month they chose to celebrate. Rose petals were scattered everywhere, creating the delicate and beautiful wedding Evelyn has always wanted. The ceremony and reception were held at the Villa Borghese, a site that easily embraced the brides rosy theme.
The ceremony showed just how romantic Evelyn really is. The aisle was sprinkled with red and pink roses, and was studded with tall white candles, lighting the path to the altar where she would join her Prince Charming.
Before inviting all of their guests into the reception area, Cinderella for a Day swept Evelyn and Tyrone away for their own private dance-a chance to reflect on their marriage, to hold each other close, and to express their happiness and love.
Cocktail hour lit the fuse of excitement. Guests enjoyed a huge bar, great appetizers, and a variety of delicious fresh fruits. The reception hall was uniquely adorned with big beautiful bouquets of hydrangeas, mums, pink roses, and crystals hanging on snow-frosted branches in tall and short glassware. These elegant bouquets, created by Lavender Leaf & Design, were given a wintery touch, nestled into a bed of sparkling snow.
Even more beautiful was Evelyn, who wore a gorgeous white ruffled gown studded with jewels, which blended perfectly with Tyrone’s grey suit, white shirt, and pink tie.
Once it was time to move into the reception area, Evelyn and Tyrone’s guest couldn’t contain their enthusiasm. The reception area, lit with a midnight blue hue, made guests feel as if they were entering a warm wintry dream.
The toasts were eloquent and reflective of the amazing relationships between the maid of honor, the best man, and the bride and groom. After the toasts were made and the parent dances concluded, the DJ cranked up the music!
Evelyn took this opportunity to change into her second dress: a white, knee high dress with sparkling jewels, and rhinestone studded shoes to match!
Once changed, the bride and all of her friends and family jumped onto the dance floor and danced non-stop to their favorite music-from Caribbean to Latin to American, Evelyn and her girls warmed up the dance floor with their moves. Later in the evening, a dear friend took the mike to serenade the bride and groom with one of their favorite songs.
Photography by Cynthia captured all of the incredible moments of the night. Even after ten years of being together, it seemed as though Evelyn and Tyrone were just beginning their journey together for the first time. It was clear by the smiles on their faces and the gleam in their eyes that their fairy-tale wedding had become a reality.
