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.

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.

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.

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.

27 Miracles Wedding and Event Planning

 

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.

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

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.

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.

February 29 Leap Year!!!

According to the calendar today is February 29, 2016 known as leap year.  27 Miracles has their special for leap year today.  Call us today to take advantage of it 407-905-5454 as the offer expires today at midnight!

https://27miracles.wordpress.com/category/tid-bits-for-brides-and-grooms-to-know-about/page/2/

Today is the day when you were in school that they would have Sadi Hawkins day .  See some of the traditions as written by columnist Bob Driver for the Clearwater Sun describes it.  Click the link for the full article.

http://www.tbnweekly.com/editorial/viewpoints/content_articles/022812_vpt-01.txt

In olden days, Feb. 29 was also celebrated as Sadie Hawkins Day, the time when girls were permitted to ask the boys of their choice for a date or whatever else the girl might have in mind.

Sadie Hawkins was the invention of Al Capp, a brilliant cartoonist who for 40 years or so drew the comic strip Li’l Abner. In the strip, Sadie was the homeliest girl in Dogpatch. She never had a date or a boy friend. Finally, as she reached the desperate age of 35, her father decreed that on a given date every spinster in Dogpatch would be entitled to pursue any unmarried male of her choice. If by sundown she could drag him across the finish line, the man had to marry her.

Capp invented Sadie Hawkins in 1937, as one more colorful character in the Li’l Abner cast. By the early 1940s the idea of an annual Sadie Hawkins Day had swept the nation. Each February, hundreds of colleges and high schools held Sadie Hawkins dances and carnivals. At one point an estimated 40,000 events took place. A related tradition sprang up which decreed that every four years – on Feb. 29 – women were free to propose marriage to their sweeties. I’m not sure anyone knows how many weddings were generated by this Leap Year custom.

Read about some Leap Year Traditions below.  Click on the link to read the full article:

Leap Day Traditions

Illustration image

I do! Traditionally, women take the ring into their own hands and propose on Leap Day.

’Leap Day’ is February 29, which is an extra (intercalary) day added during a Leap Year, making the year 366 days long – and not 365 days, like a common (normal) year. Nearly every 4 years is a Leap Year in our modern Gregorian Calendar.

Ever since Leap Years were first introduced over 2000 years ago with the transition from the Roman Calendar to the Julian Calendar in 45 BCE (Before Common Era), Leap Day has been associated with age-old Leap Day traditions and folklore.

What is a Leap Year and when is the next one?

When and what is Leap Day?

Women propose to their men

According to an old Irish legend, or possibly history, St Bridget struck a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose to men – and not just the other way around – every 4 years. This is believed to have been introduced to balance the traditional roles of men and women in a similar way to how Leap Day balances the calendar.

In some places, Leap Day has been known as “Bachelors’ Day” for the same reason. A man was expected to pay a penalty, such as a gown or money, if he refused a marriage proposal from a woman on Leap Day. In many European countries, especially in the upper classes of society, tradition dictates that any man who refuses a woman’s proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves. The intention is that the woman can wear the gloves to hide the embarrassment of not having an engagement ring. During the middle ages there were laws governing this tradition.

Valentine’s Day Countdown Day 5….A Scottish Romantic Wedding

When Kevin and Gillian, who are world travelers, decided that they wanted to have their wedding in Orlando, they contacted Rosie Moore, Master Bridal Consultant of 27 Miracles.  They had a vision of creating romance in their wedding with the traditions from Scotland.  They planned their wedding in the summer because they loved the warmth of Florida. She dreamed of having pinks, ivory, lace and peaches with a candy Buffett.  She wondered if it would all be possible planning from Scotland. She also wanted to incorporate Disney accents as she also loved Disney! She wondered if she could walk on a red carpet as she met her Prince at the Gazebo.  Would there be romantic music played as she walked down the aisle?   SO many things that she wondered…Let’s see how her day went…Did her Dreams come true?

123- (1 of 476) 123- (2 of 476) 123- (6 of 476)

Every table was decorated with beautiful centerpieces and glass beaded chargers for royalty.  Each table had a picture of a place that the couple had been to before, from Thailand, Philipines to New York City, all around the world.  It made for interesting  conversations amongst the guests.

Gillian’s day started with getting ready for the big day.  She did not want Kevin to see her getting ready, because in Scotland it was tradition that the groom not see the bride.  As she got ready, she awaited her limo to pick her up at her Villa and bring her to the romantic Celebration Golf where she had an intimate ceremony performed by Officiant Marcus Moore. The Groom and the best man were awaiting her arrival….

123- (30 of 476)

But before Gillian’s grand entrance, her bridesmaids adorned the red carpet in traditional pink laced dresses that flowed in the summer breeze.

123- (31 of 476) 123- (32 of 476)

It’s almost time for Gillian to take her walk on the red carpet..the flower girls prepare her entrance with petals on the red carpet…

123- (35 of 476)

Kevin catches a glimpse of Gillian as she walks down the aisle and judging from his smile , he is definitely smitten with this Scottish beauty!

123- (36 of 476) 123- (37 of 476)

Look at Dad! Happy to walk his daughter down the aisle as Gillian gets a glimpse of her Scottish Prince Charming!

123- (39 of 476) 123- (41 of 476)

Dad is about ready to give his daughter away, but first one last kiss ….

123- (43 of 476) 123- (44 of 476) 123- (48 of 476)

As the vows were exchanged, and a poem from Dr Seuss read…the happy couple was wed!

Now knowing that the bride and groom love Disney, the day would not be complete without a picture by the Minnie Mobile( Planner Elayna of 27 Miracles made sure she brought her fun car to work today!)

123- (314 of 476)

It’s time to cut the cake! Time to start the tradition of feeding the cake to each other.  As you know the tradition of cake cutting and feeding signifies the husband providing for his wife financially always and the wife taking care of the husband and the family always, it signifies respect of the relationship that a hand will never touch the face of the woman or the man except to caress it.  Gillian and Kevin observed that time-honored tradition.

Valentine’s Day Countdown Day 4….Proposing Today?

Many couples contact 27 Miracles when they get engaged, sometimes they contact us with the day of engagement because they are so excited to start planning the big day!  Now a lot of grooms are giving thought to creative ways to ask their sweetheart to marry them.  They think of hiring photography and videography to capture that  special moment.  Many times they create a  romantic getaway with their true love.  When planning this special proposal, be certain that she will say yes, that is key!  Marriage is a long-term committment not to be taken lightly.   Once you know for sure that your sweetheart is the one for you and you know that she feels that way too, then it’s time to prepare for the big day.  If your sweetheart is the romantic type, then a baseball game in the middle of the field is probably not the right way to propose as she  may feel uncomfortable.    Know your bride to be and what her personality is, that will always guide you.

If you are looking to propose just the two of you in a special getaway, consider Turks and Caicos, on a candlelit romantic dinner on the beach! Contact us today to plan that special proposal.
