T & R's Beautiful St. Timothy Catholic Church + Morais Vineyards Wedding

Congratulations to T and R! We are so honored to have been a part of their wedding day! :)

T and R decided to cut their engagement short when they visited Morais and fell in love with it, only to find out the venue was fully booked for a while. A few days after their tour, they received word that a day had suddenly opened up and it can be theirs if they wanted it. The catch? The date was about 4 months away. T and R jumped on this opportunity. How serendipitous! ♡

Although planning in a short amount of time can be challenging for many reasons, fate was on their side. A great vendor team was put together and every detail was beautifully planned and executed. Their wedding took place on a beautiful September day and was filled with lots of sunshine and wonderful moments, from a beautiful Catholic-Syriac ceremony to an elegant reception at Morais Vineyards. Guests dined to a fabulous plated meal and danced all night to a mix of crowd-pleasing Arabic and American tunes.

Thank you Joffoto for the lovely sneak peek photos.

It is always very special to witness the union of two people in love. However, it is even more special when those two people are from different cultures, races, religions, etc. In honor and celebration of their diversity, T and R had a beautiful Catholic-Syriac fusion wedding ceremony at St. Timothy Catholic Church.

Our gorgeous bride.

Tania's vision for her wedding in three words,"romantic, elegant, and warm". I absolutely loved helping Tania with her look and feel, from the floorplan to the tablescape. My favorite aspect to design was their sweetheart table!

P.S. When a client books you because of your personality, and your work and eye are the icing on top, you know you are doing something right! Thank you Tania for an amazing 4 months working together. I absolutely enjoyed our chats and laughs and know they will continue even after your Big Day.
