27 Miracles wants to wish Rhianna and Robert a Happy One Year Anniversary, they were married on 10/11/12 at the Holy Family Catholic Church with their wedding reception at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista in their brand new Ballroom. It was the first wedding in the new ballroom.
10/11/12 was a beautiful sunny day for a wedding, the weather was perfect. Rhianna started her day by getting ready with the talents of A Story Telling Experience doing hair and make up.
Rhianna chose to wear shoes designed by Angela Nuran to match her theme colors.
Finally it is time to see the wedding bouquet that RJ Glamour and Innovation designed for Rhianna…..
Rhianna and Robert’s heritage is from the Phillipines. They had many traditions to share on their wedding day. From their bridal party having Sponsors so that there were about 30 couples all together. Their parish priest came from Lakeland to perform the ceremony. They had the veil and cord ceremony included in their ceremony as part of their tradition. ( See more on the tradition here http://vowsandhows.com/filipino-veil-cord-coin-ceremony/
You may wonder what is the veil ceremony? “It’s a special square veil designed to go over the groom’s shoulders and the bride’s head. This veil represents everything and everyone who will protect them, their home and their families.”
The Cord (Lasso)
“Is a long cord in the shape of a figure 8 (infinity), often with a rosary attached, that goes around the wedding couple’s shoulders. It is a symbol of their intimate union and a sign of their bond to each other, and their inseparable unity.”
The Arras (Coins)
“Exactly 13 coins in a pouch or box is brought to the altar by a small child like the ring bearer or the sponsors. The coins are given from the groom to the bride as a pledge and promise to financially support their new family. The bride accepts the gift of these coins along with the responsibility of building a loving home.”
Rhianna chose to use a cathedral length veil for the ceremony.
After the ceremony it was time for the festivities to begin….A limo ride to the Sheraton Lake Buena vista in a white hummer provided by VIP Limo
Once the bride and groom arrived at the Sheraton it was time to have fun taking some photos with the bridal party. Including the couple’s dogs of course dressed in their bridal party colors!!!
Now the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista built a beautiful new ballroom and Rhianna and Robert were the first couple to celebrate an event in the new space. With the decor provided by RJ Glamour and Innovation and the lighting by Roque Productions, the room transformed into a romantic atmosphere. The bride and groom got a first look at the room and they were in awe!
Take a look at the before and after pictures.
The bride had a very emotional dance with her daddy to a song that he used to sing to her in Filipino “Sing Me Your Song Again Daddy” by Jose Marie Chan, it was very touching.
The bride and Groom did the Dollar Dance. But the tradition in the Phillipines is for the guests to make a crown and banner of the money and then pin the rest of it to their clothing. The wedding money dance, or Saya ng Pera, is a requirement at Filipino Weddings. Rhianna and Robert chose to play traditional Filipino folk music.
The night is not complete without the garter removal. The bride elected to change in to her second dress of the evening to enjoy some dancing time with her guests.
The guests enjoyed lots of dancing, they did not want the party to end thanks to the high energy of the very talented DJ Roque of Roque Productions
The night ended with the bride and groom having a bubble exit after much love received from the guests….
A beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple….
One Last surprise for the bride and groom ….petals await them from the entry of the room to their bedroom ….Happy Anniversary and many more!!!
