Aly and Jake's January wedding at Villa Encanto was truly one of a kind! So many personal elements of the couple's life and relationship were integrated into this event, and the result was a wedding that entirely reflected the couple standing under the chuppah!
A little bit about the couple before revealing the photos of their nuptials: they wanted to incorporate fruit in a big way; they chose a color palette of earthy brown and greens with pops of red and yellow. They wanted a completely relaxed ambiance in which guests could really kick back and enjoy the beach air; they wanted to incorporate their love of travel (both past and future endeavors) into the celebration. Their love of crossword puzzles had to be represented, and their two "kids" - a stuffed monkey and alligator - were absolutely essential as guests to the wedding! All these elements wrapped up into a cocktail-style reception and voila! A wedding to be remembered!
The lovely Jewish wedding ceremony took place in the villa garden where guests wrapped around three sides of the chuppah encircling the bride and groom as they exchanged vows.
Following the kiss, guests gathered on the outdoor terrace for appetizers, drinks and lots of fun interactive stations!
Following a few cocktails and tasty quesadillas prepared at a live cooking station, guests were invited to the beach for dancing, desserts and a surprise Churros station (the bride's very favorite!)
