A Love that Lasts Forever….Gabby and Frank

What does it mean when you say a love that lasts forever?  Is it a love that lasts until the first fight? A love that lasts until one gets bored with the person they are with? Or is it a love that withstands the test of all times?  Let me share a love story that surpasses the fairytale romance of the wedding day.  For those that don’t know the story of Gabby and Frank, read their engagement blog here to see their story https://27miracles.com/2016/03/31/high-school-sweethearts-fall-in-love-gabby-and-frank/

Today, a man and a woman stand before God and their families to declare their love.  Neither of them have any idea what the future holds, but does anyone?  However that did not matter to either of them. They were best friends and they were in love.

If you recall in our engagement story, the Orlando wedding community joined together to give this deserving couple the wedding of their dreams.  With the many challenges that they faced financially for all the medical care that Gabby had to have, their would not be anything left to plan a wedding.

April 2, 2016 the day had arrived.  Thunderstorms were not going to keep this wedding from happening.  The day started out hot, muggy and stormy, but no one seemed to notice, all that mattered on this day was that hundreds of people were coming together to make a couple’s wedding dreams come true!

123-438Gabby found her mother to be such a huge support for here she did not want to pass a moment to dance with her mother.

The happy couple had many well wishers as they toasted to their new life together.

123-469

123-621

123-622Today we keep Gabby in our prayers for health and Frank for strength as they embark on this journey together. Do not marry the person that you can live with, marry the person that you cannot live without.  Enjoy your love with the person you are with for tomorrow is never promised.  Take the example of Gabby and Frank, best friends in love,  riding the waves of life together.  Some days the waves are crashing high and they hold on to the boat of life a little tighter as they ride the wave, other days they can sit back and relax in the boat as they rock gently back and forth.

Thank you to all our wedding professionals that donated time and service to make Gabby and Frank’s wedding day special.

A Surprise Rehearsal Dinner for Gabby and Frank

Today was the start of a special celebration for Gabby and Frank. They traveled to Orlando from South Florida for their wedding. They had their rehearsal at Henry Chapel at First Baptist Orlando.

After the wedding rehearsal was completed, we started the celebration with a rehearsal dinner at the Star Island Resort.  It was beautifully decorated in the bride’s favorite color of pink.

123-5 123-24

The couple did not have any idea that this was being planned for them while they were at First Baptist Orlando for their wedding rehearsal. Eric Clark with 27 Miracles coordinated the rehearsal dinner set up, while Adam Rubman of Orlando DJ and Lighting set up draping and uplights ( in pink of course) to accent the room.  Nick Sabatino of 123 Photyography and Bruce Reynolds of Treasured Moments awaited the arrival of the happy couple for their grand entrance.

The time arrived for the couple to be told why they were at Star Island Resort.   Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles welcomed the couple in and said, “this is your night with your family, a night with those that love you the most.”

Christine Mac Phail, Orlando  harpist, serenaded the couple as they came in with romantic love songs123-26123-19 123-30

Gabby and Frank were surprised.  A strawberry flavored cake awaited them from Party Flavors with pink butterflies ( a sign of new life).123-14The couple was taken back with the beauty of the island resort as they celebrated their love for each other. They wanted to explore and have a moment to dream about love, about their unique love.

Today Is The Day, The Day That Dreams Are Made Of April 22nd 2016

imagesThat was the headline 27 years ago when Diane and Don were married.  You might be asking yourself, who is Diane and Don?  Well they are a couple of lovebirds married 27 years ago of course.  But all kidding aside,  Diane Jenson is a Professional Wedding Planner for The Wedding Party as well as Co-Director for the Association of Bridal Consultants in Central Florida.  It is not often that we get to write a story about a fellow wedding professional.

Here is a little history on the happy couple in Diane’s own words

“After seven long years of dating, Don finally proposed to me and  two years later we were married.  It was a beautiful day on April 22, 1989 at 4pm  when we exchanged our marriage vows at Mead Gardens in Orlando.  The weather was picture perfect!  The headline in the Orlando Sentinel read “The day that dreams are made of.”

Wedding pic 1

When you ask Diane why she became a Professional Wedding Planner she said, “I have such a heart for planning a couple’s wedding.  I remember the excitement of the planning and how I wanted everything to be so perfect on our special day,  This is why I can truly relate to how a bride feels as she entrusts me to help make her wedding the dream of a lifetime.”

Wedding pic 2

I asked Diane about that love that she shares with Don for 27 years and how she feels about him now.  Diane simply stated, “we are a very happy bride and groom who love the Lord, each other, family and friends. We have enjoyed spending these twenty-seven years together through good and challenging times.  I am so thankful to God for giving me the man of my dreams.  We look forward to many more happy years together. ”

What an amazing story of love to see one of our own happily married.  Today from the entire team at 27 Miracles we want to wish Diane and Don a lifetime of love, happiness and romance always.  Happy 27th Anniversary!!! Thank you for letting us share that special year of “27” with us.

Most recently a group of Association of Bridal Consultant Planners and students alongside other wedding professionals came together to make a terminally ill bride’s dreams come true.

Here is Diane speaking at our January meeting this year at the warehouse for A Chair Affair, where Diane coordinated the transformation of a warehouse in to a design concept for wedding professionals to learn about design concepts with Tracy and Jennifer our speakers of the evening.

The Winter Wedding of Jingshu and Xingyuan

When Jingshu and Xingyuan decided to get married, they wanted to come to Florida from China to plan their special day.  They wanted to have the time-honored traditions from China.

123-21

They started their wedding day having a traditional wedding ceremony.  Jingshu looked beautiful in her wedding dress selected by Xingyuan.

123-28

There was a red carpet brought from China for the bride to walk on as she stepped out of her limousine.  The red color represents a good future in China.  In the Chinese tradition, the groom taking the bride from bride’s house on a red carpet will be good luck for the new couple on their wedding day.  When the bride walked out of the limousine this started the tradition of the red carpet for this day.

123-1 123-5 123-7 123-11 123-12 123-14 123-15

The red carpet was also placed at the ceremony site where the bride and groom were to be married.  The ceremony was translated by the best man in to Chinese. The couple’s ceremony included traditions such as lighting of the unity candle and warming of the rings.

123-70 123-89

123-83 123-86 123-88 123-92 123-96 123-100 123-104 123-108 123-110 123-112 123-121 123-123 123-124 123-132 123-133 123-155 123-157

Now that the ceremony was done, it was time for some romantic pictures in downtown celebration and on the golf course as they watched the sunset.

123-172 123-176 123-197 123-200 123-209 123-225 123-234 123-241 123-252 123-258 123-261 123-269 123-276 123-294 123-295 123-301 123-304 123-316 123-318

The happy couple returned to Celebration Golf to admire their reception decor and preapre for the fun.

After the ceremony, the bride changed in to her traditional red dress so that they can have their tea ceremony.  This is the first time that the bride addresses the groom’s parents as mom and dad and the same for the groom.  The tradition is that the bride serves a special blend of Chinese tea to his mother and father and the groom serves it to her mother and father.  They bow at their feet as a sign of respect because they are the elders that should  be respected and sought after for advice.

123-381 123-385 123-388 123-390 123-395 123-398 123-399 123-400 123-403 123-404

The bride then changed in to her party dress to enjoy the evening reception.  After dinner there were many toasts with traditional wine brought from China. This was followed by the cutting of the cake. They followed the time honored tradition that they will respect each other’s faces and feed each other without smashing the cake.

123-471 123-473 123-478

The happy couple enjoyed Karaoke all night with dancing. Look at the smiles on this group of folks, enjoying the best day of this couple’s lives.  There was not a language barrier here to help share in this couples wedding day.   A great time was had by all…..

High School Sweethearts Fall In Love Gabby and Frank

Love stories are always great to read and talk about especially when there is a wedding to be planned.  That is the love story of Gabby and Frank, high school sweethearts that fell in love. You can see the love that they have for each other in the pictures as 123 Photography captures those moments.

123-1 123-4 123-6 123-39 123-42 123-46 123-49 123-53 123-55 123-72

Gabby and Frank were the  typical high school sweethearts, until one day…..

123-76 123-77 123-81

27 Miracles received a letter from Gabby that read like this:

123-85

“Hello Rosie, thank you so much for taking the time to write back to me and ask me about my illness.  I spoke to Ivonne and was amazed by the incredible weddings you’ve done for others. So I am really excited that you wrote to me! I would love to explain my story to you.

In 2013 my fiancé and I were celebrating our second anniversary of dating,  when we got back home I became sick. It started with a cough and gradually turned into pneumonia and a virus.   The doctors gave me antibiotics but I did not get better.   I became paralyzed and wheelchair bound; I lost all my independence. I went from a normal 19 year old girl into someone that didn’t know what was happening; I felt lost. The doctors didn’t know what was happening.   They operated on my left lung to determine what was happening but still no answers.  The doctors kept saying the same thing, I just had a bad case of pneumonia.

15 16

My health problems were overwhelming.   My mom and my fiancé became my caregivers.   I couldn’t do the simplest of things like brushing my teeth or combing my hair. I became oxygen dependent.  Many days I wanted to give up, but my faith kept reminding me to keep fighting. After a year of fighting, in December of 2013, I decided to get up on my own from the wheelchair.   As I got out of the wheel chair I blacked out and was rushed to the hospital.   While at the hospital, they ran tests and found fluid surrounding my heart.  The doctors decided that an emergency surgery to remove the fluid was necessary.   The doctors removed over 600cc of fluid inside and outside of my heart.  They stated that if I had waited two more hours, I would have passed away. The next day while in ICU,  I was told I had to have another surgery to figure out why my lungs weren’t capable of functioning on their own. They did surgery on my right lung this time.

7 8 Prayers

I felt drained, but I kept fighting, I needed answers.   I was diagnosed with three chronic autoimmune diseases. Dermatomyositis,  this  is a rare muscle disease that affects the heart and lungs, the breathing muscles, swallowing muscles and skeletal muscles.  This disease depending on the day, debilitates me to the point where some days I can walk, while others I am confined to the wheelchair.  I was also diagnosed with sjogrens syndrome, a chronic autoimmune condition characterized by degeneration of the salivary and lachrymal glands, causing dryness of the mouth and eyes.  This condition also affected my teeth; sadly I am missing most of my teeth.   The doctors also told me that I have pulmonary fibrosis, a respiratory disease in which scars are formed in the lung tissues, leading to serious breathing problems.  I am on chemotherapy medicine to control the diseases, prednisone and acthar gel injections as well. All these illnesses made the type 1 diabetes that I have had since age 8 worse.

6

Despite all of this happening in my life, my fiancé proposed to me while in the hospital in front of my family and favorite nurses on December 13, 2013.  I didn’t know if I was going to live or die, I was  hanging on to my faith. Saying YES to him was without a doubt my desire,  he’s an amazing man and best friend.


11 13 The proposal 14 The proposal

The doctors have told me that I have 3 to 5 years to live because of the pulmonary fibrosis and the other conditions involved make the pulmonary fibrosis worse.    My lung specialist stated that I have to be put on a lung transplant list.   It’s a scary thing for me, but also for my fiancé, my mother, my younger brother and the family.   There is a chance of rejection, but I truly believe God does things for a reason. I believe throughout my journey God made me  into the woman I am,  I see life differently,  I appreciate the little things.

My goal is to marry the man of my dreams,  to walk to him and not be in a wheelchair, even though I don’t know if this illness and its complications will take me away from him. I just want  to  finally marry the one I love.   We have been engaged for two years and saving for a wedding has become impossible due to the medical bills.

10

Getting in touch with you is amazing.   I truly believe God put Ivonne and you in my path for a reason.  I do have so many ideas in my mind, one example is dedicating the song “Mamas Song” by Carrie Underwood to my mother,  she’s been my rock through it all and dedicating a special song to my fiancé.

Gabby and Her Mom

I would love to do my wedding if possible around February because my birthday is on Valentines Day.  I don’t know how to sign the HIPAA form could you explain that to me. I don’t have an exact count on how many people will be there, but could I give you an estimate if possible? If my dream wedding is possible it would be a dream come true for me. Thank you again for taking the time to write to me! ”

When 27 Miracles planner Rosie Moore received this letter, she was touched by Gabby’s story.  She spoke to a few wedding professionals who without even thinking, after she shared the story said count me in. There are many who are surprising the bride and groom with their services, so we shall have to keep everything a secret for now…but if you follow us on facebook , you will be sure to see many pictures of the beautiful day.

123-16

On Saturday, April 2nd 2016 at 2:30pm, Gabby and Frank will be married with all of their friends and family at First Baptist Orlando Church.  The wedding professionals involved are all eager for this day to come so that they can give of themselves to make a bride’s dream come true.  There will be a private reception for friends and family after the ceremony. On this day  a community will join together to help make Gabby and Frank’s wedding dreams come true.  27 Miracles thanks all of the wedding professionals that have been involved in planning this blessed event.

ABC Meeting Design Concepts for Your Weddings and Events

The planners at the Association of Bridal Consultants want to be at the forefront of education at all times so they can have fresh new ideas for their clients.  What better way to stay ahead of the game than to have a meeting in one of the largest warehouses there is in Central Florida;  A Chair Affair where they have every imaginable chair, charger, cake stand and so much more! But you can’t leave out the linens, color and texture combined with the accessories to make a tablescape gorgeous on your event day.  Jennifer from Over the Top Linens had a fabulous presentation that included show and tell for all the planners and designers present that day.

Jennifer spoke about the Five Fabulous Design Tips:

  1. Keep your key words in mind
  2. Have faith that all your efforts will be worth it and you selected the right vendors
  3. Share something personal and unique
  4. Tell the story
  5. Prioritize what is important and keep the look consistent
  6. Be a dream team, but remember the bride(client) is the BOSS!

Jennifer touched on the trends that we are seeing in 2016:

  1. Going glam
  2. Shades of treasure
  3. Dramatic fashion
  4. Geometric patterns
  5. Exotic elegance
  6. Simple photography
  7. Tourist for a day

See the pictures of some of the designs created right there at A Chair Affair with Jennifer from Over the Top Linens and Sharon from A  Chair Affair. Tracey from Enchanting Events tied all of the information together and took us to the planner’s favorite moment when she gets to put the design ideas  together with the client’s vision for the presentation to the client of what is “THE VISION” the moment that a bride awaits to see her dream wedding come true!

We all enjoyed a great Italian buffet dinner from Del Dio’s Restaurant on the beautiful china from A Chair Affair.  Following our presentation, came the dessert reveal, WOW! Bedazzle your eyes  with cake and desserts from Cut the Cake and Macaroons from the Macaroon Place!

Despite the torrential downpour that evening, nothing could keep the planners from attending this fabulous event that would enrich the lives of their future clients. Planners are like the mail carriers, neither rain, sleet or snow will keep them away from learning and planning your beautiful event.  It’s a good thing we just deal with heat and hurricanes in Florida!

ABC Orlando Learns About Themed Weddings and Events

Have you ever met with a client and they come to you with the craziest ideas?  They want to have Star Wars or Batman movie theme songs in their wedding?  The songs are okay, but what happens when the bride wants to dress her entire bridal party in Star Wars theme including her and the groom, what do you do?  Well for starters, eventhough as a planner it may not be your vision, learn to do a lot of listening, a lot of focusing on your bride and plenty of research  to get the theme right.  If that bride is coming to you trusting in your expertise to pull this wedding theme off perfectly, as a planner we must  research everything about that theme.

Debra Shea Roberston, wedding decor designer was our speaker at our ABC luncheon held at the Wyndham Orlando Resort.  The room was decorated in fall colors for our themed fall event of the month.  AV Media did a fabulous job with the falling leaves and up lighting to create that beautiful atmosphere, while the MC Andres Roque from Roque Productions, got us in the fall mood with some mood enhancing music as we prepared for fall. The centerpieces brought in the fall colors to enhance the crushed linens selected by Connie Duglin  and the tablescape  with  A  Chair Affair’s chargers .

The day was captured( pun intended) by the talented photographer Elle, from Captured by Elle.  Treasured moments was there to record this fabulous training on themed weddings and events as Debra Shea took us through memory lane of themed weddings  she has done in her many years of experience as  floral designer.

The afternoon ended with dessert from Cakes by Design to tempt the taste buds with an apple cinnamon cake and candied apples from Davimar Cakes.
