Presentación de Los Padrinos
On Saturday, October 24th, Anna & Daniel were married twice! Both being of Catholic faith, they wanted to have a church wedding yet also wanted a beautiful outdoor wedding so they did both. Their day started in the afternoon with a traditional Catholic church wedding. Afterwards, they came back to Keswick Vineyards and relaxed before starting their 2nd ceremony. This ceremony would celebrate the traditions of a Mexican ceremony which was a first here at Keswick Vineyards.
It started with El Lazo (The Lasso) which is an oversize Rosary that is placed over Anna and Daniel and unifies the couple together in marriage with the figure eight representing infinity to their marriage. Next came Los Arras (The Coins). At this point the groom gives the bride coins reinforcing the love and admiration the groom has for his bride. She accepts as her intent to support him. After that came Biblio y Rosario (Bible and Rosary). Daniel’s Grandparents presented the couple with their first family bible and rosary reminding the newlyweds of Gods eternal love. Finally, Vela de la Unidad (The Unity Candle) in which Anna & Daniel lite individual candles and then together lite one candle representing two individual lives becoming one. At the conclusion of this ceremony Anna & Daniel read together the Irish Wedding Prayer.
Now that the ceremonies were over guests retreated to cocktail hour and enjoyed appetizers while the couple, with Photographer Robert Radifera, left to take memorable photos. I just loved the flowers done by Verde Natural Florals. They had just enough “extras” added to them to give off that fall feel. The beautiful wedding cake done by Sweethaus also had just a few of those flowers added to it. Not only did the couple have a delicious wedding cake but also had a groom’s cake that definitely let guests know the groom was a golfer. Guests danced the night away with DJ Daniel Sims before the guests left in their limo by Camryn Limousine. Felicidades y buena suerte a los dos por una vida maravillosa juntos!
