Tell us about your engagement!

What was the vision for your wedding?
Angelia: The ceremony was on the beach so we wanted something simple. We chose a wooden bamboo structure with some white linens draped over it. We had white chairs for the guests.
What was your theme and what inspired it?
Angelia: No real theme. We incorporated some beach elements due to the location by using some lanterns with candles and seashells for the guest tables at the reception dinner.
What details were used to create your theme?
Angelia: We stuck with white for most of the decor with the addition of fuchsia orchids.
