The song “When A Man Loves A Woman” is a classic representation of what every girl hopes her guy will feel about her. Josue & Berenice’s wedding was the real life version of this romantic song. The love he had for her showed in every single aspect of their fairytale wedding.
Josue & Berenice’s wedding was intended from the very beginning to be an extremely lavish affair that their families and friends would talk about for many, many years. Their main goal was to ensure that their fairytale romance was apparent in each and every aspect of their wedding. Josue loved Bernice unconditionally and unabashedly and he wanted to make sure that her every dream and wish for their wedding was accomplished.
During their ceremony he read to her from their family bible and then they were prayed over by their family to ensure they understood that they were part of a village and that throughout their marriage they would be supported and loved.
Their venue, Chateau Luxe, is a fabulous venue full of light, crystals and elegance. It perfectly represented their vision of their wedding. They were hoping to utilize the new garden location at the venue , but unfortunately it wasn’t ready in time. Josue brought the outdoors in by contracting with a second florist (Tulip Tree), in addition to the amazing florals originally selected to provide additional arrangements without Bernice knowing so her dream of a lush, green wedding would come true.
Their love of authentic Mexican music, that would encourage their guests to dance and enjoy themselves, (they had a large number of out of country guests that only spoke Spanish) was so important to them that they had 2 live bands (Lobos Musciarios and Banda La Llegadora) and a well known radio DJ (Eclipse Hispanic (Univision)) perform for their reception.
The venue is not allowed to host an outdoor fireworks display, so Karma Event Lighting created an amazing indoor fireworks display that surprised all of the guests during Josue and Berenice’s first dance, while he serenaded her (a secret we kept from her until that night). He sang not once, but twice that night! Everyone was in tears.
A large and lavish 4 tier cake was just the beginning of the sweet treats for the guests. Each guest also received a treat of chocolates at their place setting and a sweet cupcake (provided by Cakes by Whisk), individually wrapped, on their way out at the end of the evening. Guests also enjoyed a lavish dessert bar and a gelato station (Frost 321) under the stars. Adding to the personal touch, Berenice wrapped custom scented candles for all of their female guests to take home.
