The reason behind the title of my post is the fact that the bride and groom....mostly the groom are huge fans of cigars. This wedding totally let you know that!
I met Johanna over a year ago when she had first started planning her wedding. There was a different venue and colors :) It's been a long road for her I know but the end result was a beautiful day that definitely embodied everything that that this couple loves.
We guests arrived at the Miami Rowing Club they first made their way on to the deck that it attached to the ballroom and overlooks the water. A cigar roller was set up and people did not wait to get the party started. Normally guests are always awaiting getting in to the ballroom, not this crowd. They were having a great time.
The place cards were attached to little bottle of red wine. They looked adorable.
The ballroom was lit with red uplights that truly gave it a romantic feel. The tables were dressed in ivory linens with a gold embroidered overlay and had one of two centerpieces.
The first was a low centerpiece of mixed flowers. The second a trumpet vase filled with cymbidium orchids and topped with a red lamp shade. All the tables were name after cigars.
The cake was lovely and very yummy!
The 12 ft candy buffet was a hit. The table had jars and cigar boxes all filled with different types of candy. We had to refill it 3 times!
Johanna aka ILUVJAVI :), it's been a great ride and I'm glad it ended with a perfect night for you and your hunnie. I wish you both nothing but the happiest of year together. I'm sure that party will never end!
Javier, it was so nice finally meeting you! I was nice to finally meet the "JAVI" in the name after almost two years of talking about you LOL. I know the two of you will be very happy for a very long time.
Have fun in Vegas next month! and for the rest of your lives!
