Mercy and Louis got married on the HOTTEST day of the summer this past October! They, along with their guests, were such troopers out in the sunshine! The day was lovely, the evening was even lovelier! The bride was the loveliest of all! Enjoy these sneak peek photos until we get a peek at the professional photos of Eva Sica!
This was an amazing moment! (And the umbrellas are for the heat - NOT rain!)
A foot-cleansing station was set up at the entrance of the ceremony for guests.
Then guests were invited into Oceana beachside restaurant for cocktails with maracas and a lively mariachi band (with a guest appearance by the bride's mom!)
Following cocktail hour, guests were seated at long family-style tables decorated with lanterns and bright arrangements, intertwining curly willow and tropical tangerines.
Following dinner, a live cigar roller took his place in a small cigar lounge created as a surprise gift from the bride to the groom. Hand-made signs, painted and distressed to resemble an old Cuban cigar bar hung in the area, and dominos were placed in the base of arrangements as a nod to the bride's comment that her "old school Cuban guests" would sit around playing dominos and smoking cigars!
The night ended with fireworks and dancing! A truly amazing evening! Watch for professional photos of this wedding to come! Congratulations Mercy and Louis!
