As the wedding day progressed, Cindy and Mario’s special day carried artistic and personal touches at every turn. If it wasn’t the custom yarmulkes that were handed out at the ketubah signing, then surely the chuppah would set the tone that this wedding was all about celebrating the these two individuals coming together as a couple. After all, the chuppah’s canopy was made from Cindy’s mother’s wedding veil and then adorned with flowers. One symbolic tradition became a new meaningful staple to their Jewish wedding.
Beware! Children participating in weddings can steal the bride and groom’s thunder if they’re super cute. Today’s wedding is no exception to this fair warning. The flower girls and ring bearers were the bride’s cute nieces and nephews and it was so cute and funny the way the two ring bearers diplomatically shared their duties! This is serious business after all!
Since this Cuban-Jewish couple just moved from Brooklyn to Texas, they knew there had to be salsa dancing as well as the Horah at their reception. Cindy and Mario’s guests weren’t shy on the dance floor thanks to the rockin’ tunes and restive decor. The whimsical displays of hydrangeas, succulents, and birds’ nests for the ceremony were the perfect prelude to the reception’s vintage motif that featured mason jars filled with posies and tulips. The escort cards were miniature pecan pies — yum! — that led their guests to their tables with turquoise framed old-fashioned alphabet cards. Proof is in the pudding that design elements have no bounds when it comes to personalizing your wedding. Cindy and Mario’s special day was a cornucopia of red and aqua details that provided a fun, chic, and retro atmosphere.
Mazel tov, Cindy and Mario!
