Alana and Aaron could not be happier that they were able to say their “I Do’s” right before everything shut down due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. Although they lost a bit over two dozen guests who could not travel, over 100 family, friends, and loved ones came to witness their joyous union at the Conrad Fort Lauderdale. The ceremony overlooked the Atlantic where the couple said their vows under a most magical chuppah. Cascading florals of phalaenopsis and dendrobium orchids, hydrangea, roses, matthiola, and wisteria covered the traditional structure. The bride carried a classic gathered bouquet made with roses, miniature calla lilies, baby orchid florets, and finished with crystal accents while the bridesmaids held coordinating French-wrapped bouquets. Guests were greeted into the reception with a champagne seating wall designed with faux hydrangea. A combination of lush low arrangements with tropical foliage and tall floral bridges abundant with more cascading flowers and candlelight made for a most romantic ballroom. It was a wonderful evening of gratitude, love, and light… and a great reminder that one must always celebrate life even in the midst of darkness.
