The day arrived for the wedding to begin! Migdalia thoroughly enjoyed her time on Saturday morning getting ready in her bridal suite at First Baptist Orlando. Look at the detail in RJ Glamour’s work as he surprised the bride with a New York bling apple on her bouquet. 27 Miracles loves it when  the wedding professionals surprise their clients!

Now that everyone is dressed and ready to go, the girls thought they would show off their new travel bags and how well they worked on the wedding day to carry all their needs.

123- (27 of 541) 123- (54 of 541) 123- (55 of 541) 123- (56 of 541)The girls were having too much fun, getting their pictures taken.  One special thing about this group of girls, is that the majority were sisters of the bride and a best friend and her daughter.  It made the bond very special.

123- (70 of 541)The church looked beautiful with the red carpet and the aisle with the candles and flowers…

123- (33 of 541)123- (34 of 541)It is time to welcome the guests!123- (71 of 541)27 Miracles had a surprise guest come to the wedding, hmm….1908352_10152972571522795_6269355648209943462_n

“can you babysit my guinea pig while we are in the ceremony, he won’t make a sound?” Okay we get asked to hold on to purses, watches, bags, hair bands, cell phones, but guinea pigs…okay that is a first…We took their word for it and said sure we did not open it to see what was inside, for fear of what may come out!!

When the bride was planning the wedding with Master Bridal Consultant Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles, she wanted to do something special but did not know what to do.  Rosie Moore suggested that she could  honor Edwin for his service in the Marines and other veterans and active duty military.  The honor guard, came out to First Baptist Orlando to do just that.  What a challenge to keep the groom hidden on one side so that he did not see them come out until it was time.  We had them wait inside the doors and the groom outside the doors of the church in the lobby.  This ensured he did not see them.  Poor Edwin, kept asking Rosie Moore, the planner, why he couldn’t go inside as they practiced the night before.  Finally the time to open the doors came, Moore, explained to Edwin that this is a special surprise for him and after he sees it, he can go inside.  The bride of course could not see the groom, so she took a sneak peek from the side of her room as the honor guard posted their flags to “God Bless the USA.”

Watch the groom’s reaction as he awaits the doors to be opened.

Photographer Nick from 123 Photography captured the Honor Guard as they came in to post their flags. Scott from Treasured Moments Videography was able to capture the moment as they entered.  These are the reasons why video is so important, they give life to your still photography shots and tell the story that is captured with expression.

It’s time to enter the ceremony, the mother of the groom enters followed by Pastor David Uth of First Baptist Orlando and the groom and his groomsmen.

123- (80 of 541) 123- (82 of 541) 123- (85 of 541)Now the moment everyone has been waiting for…the entrance of the bride escorted by her son Marcus.  The bridal party anxiously awaits her entrance while the groom with nervous anticipation holds back tears as the moment has come, when he will see his beautiful bride!

123- (99 of 541) 123- (100 of 541) 123- (101 of 541) 123- (102 of 541) 123- (105 of 541) 123- (106 of 541) 123- (107 of 541) 123- (109 of 541) 123- (110 of 541) 123- (111 of 541) 123- (112 of 541)As Migdalia and Edwin profess their love for each other, they share special vows  written to each other.   Migdalia makes everyone laugh as she vows to be a good wife and “like Fox News, understand football and watch the travel channel over and over.” She also thanked Edwin “for loving her cats even though he was allergic to them.”  LOL!123- (114 of 541) 123- (117 of 541) 123- (118 of 541) 123- (122 of 541) 123- (123 of 541) 123- (129 of 541) 123- (132 of 541) 123- (135 of 541) 123- (139 of 541) 123- (142 of 541) 123- (144 of 541) 123- (146 of 541) 123- (149 of 541) 123- (150 of 541)

But on the serious note, this couple wanted to start their marriage right with celebrating communion as the song by Nicole C. Mullins “My Redeemer Lives” played softly in the background.

123- (151 of 541) 123- (153 of 541) 123- (154 of 541) 123- (155 of 541) 123- (156 of 541) 123- (157 of 541)The couple wanted to do something different, they decided to do a Unity Cross.

“The Unity Cross is a multi-piece sculpture that is assembled during the Unity Service of the Wedding Ceremony representing how the -Two become One. The Groom places the outer Cross in the beautiful wood base as the Pastor explains how God created man- Bold, Strong, the Defender of the Family yet how he is empty and incomplete without the woman. The Bride then places the more delicate cross inside of the Grooms cross as the Pastor explains how God created Woman- Delicate, multi-faceted, taking care of all of the little things that completes the man, and the -Two become One. The Bride and Groom then use the 3 golden pegs to lock the union(cross) together in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit as the pastor exclaims that: What God has brought together let no man take apart. Then the Unity Cross is taken home and displayed as a Daily Reminder of your Wedding Day and the Covenant that you both have made.”

123- (158 of 541) 123- (159 of 541) 123- (160 of 541)

The Pastor pronounced them husband and wife.  “you may kiss your beautiful bride.” 123- (161 of 541) 123- (162 of 541) 123- (163 of 541) 123- (165 of 541) 123- (167 of 541)Migdalia and Edwin were so thrilled to have their Pastor David Uth marry them and to have the honor guard honor Edwin and all those that served so that we can be free today. 123- (170 of 541) 123- (182 of 541)18114_10152972562262795_5972756448744776646_nWhen you have not seen your family in a while,it is important to capture those special moments with them.  Check out 123 Photography as he captured this happy couple with some fun bridal party shots.

123- (237 of 541)The bride and groom are both from New York and they always said that the day they got married, they wanted to have a New York Themed wedding and that they did!  See the attention to detail that was placed on this themed wedding.  The venue is The Crowne Plaza Universal, with its picture decor of the Big Apple.  The uplights in the background,  a cityscape of New York, thanks to Roque Productions, the wedding cake, has the New York Skyline with the big apple in the background.  Each table was a different city or street that meant something to the bride and groom; from Manhattan, to Park Ave, Rockefeller Center and Central Park.  The red, black and bling colors made this wedding over the top in decor by RJ Glamour and Innovation.  The Wedding cake was customized by Party Flavors, not only beautiful, but delicious with each tier a different flavor.  The cake topper a special order through the U.S. Marines.123- (240 of 541) 123- (241 of 541) 123- (242 of 541) 123- (243 of 541) 123- (245 of 541) 123- (246 of 541) 123- (250 of 541) 123- (251 of 541) 123- (253 of 541) 123- (254 of 541) 123- (255 of 541) 123- (257 of 541) 123- (259 of 541) 123- (260 of 541) 123- (261 of 541) 123- (262 of 541) 123- (263 of 541) 123- (265 of 541) 123- (266 of 541) 123- (267 of 541)

As the 27 Miracles team brought the Bride and groom to see the ballroom for the first time, the expression on their faces tells it all as to how happy they were to see the fruits of the year-long planning come to life. They entered to one of their favorite songs “Native New Yorker” by Odyssey.  The couple got to enjoy a special moment to dance while looking at the ballroom in their little piece of New York at The Crown Plaza.123- (274 of 541) 123- (275 of 541) 123- (277 of 541) 123- (278 of 541) 123- (279 of 541) 123- (280 of 541) 123- (281 of 541) 123- (286 of 541) 123- (289 of 541) 123- (292 of 541) 123- (293 of 541) 123- (295 of 541) 123- (297 of 541) 123- (305 of 541) 123- (309 of 541) 123- (311 of 541)

What is the Difference Between a Venue Coordinator and an Outside Wedding Coordinator

The age-old question is always, what is the difference between the venue coordinator and the outside wedding planner?  The Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) invited Zhay Robles/Catering Manager at 1805 on the Boulevard and Caitlin Lawler/Wedding Planner/Owner of Plan It Event Design and Management to answer those questions.  Mark Kingsdorf Master Bridal Consultant and Co Director for ABC facilitated the discussion.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!! Love Sacrifices All Except Love Itself!!

By now everyone has received their sweetie’s Valentine’s Cards, gifts, hugs and kisses…Now it is time to wind down and share in our last Valentine series …..The Love of Vikki and Chip…..27 Miracles writes a lot of wedding and engagement blogs…..but sit back and read this couples story of sacrifice, love and committment….

When Vikki and Chip planned their wedding day, they planned it based on their school schedule. They started working with Master Bridal Consultant, Rosie Moore to plan this beautiful event back in the summer of 2013 when they were both off from school.  The date was set 12/13/14.  That summer they looked at over 15 venues in a span of a few days and ended up picking the place where Chip proposed to Vikki, The Beautiful Wyndham Orlando.

Everything was set.  The following summer they did tastings, floral samples, finalizing the wedding and the honeymoon.  Then came the bad news, the wedding may be off!! What? Why?  Vikki is a graduate student as a Pharmacist and school  decided that they will not end until 12/18/14 and she will have a final exam on 12/13/14 and another on 12/15/14.  As much as she tried they would not allow her to take the exam early. Vikki contacted Rosie with the dilemma and what can we do.   Planner Rosie Moore, said give her a day to think about things.  Then it was set, the honeymoon was postponed until the summer,we will get everything done for the wedding earlier,  as far as preparations.  The bride would have a friend drive her to school the morning of the test and when she arrived back, hair and make up would be there ready and waiting for her.

Vikki was up early and out for her final exam, first of many after studying all night the day before after rehearsal.  When she came back, we were all set….Everyone was ready for Vikki….Vikki was smiling and ready to get married.

Valentine’s Day Countdown Day 11……..Romance in Marriage….

Sometimes in life we get busy and we put things off until we have time to fulfill our dream.  Jobs, family, pregnancy and obligations keep us busy.  That was the case with Erika and Andres.  This beautiful couple had been married for four years but never really had the time to have their formal wedding.  Now mind you, Andres is a DJ/MC so seeing weddings every weekend only made their desires grow more.  That is when Andres decided one day to just say enough is enough, we are planning a wedding and called on Rosie Moore, Master Bridal Consultant to help.

Erika and Andres’ wedding was going to be about the family and friends having a great time.  But at the same time about these two lovebirds enjoying their so long-awaited special day.

Andres Erica01 Andres Erica02

They were married in their home church with a reception at the Wyndham Orlando.  The wedding brought tears to many as the Officiant retold stories of this couple and baptized their little girl at their ceremony and received communion.  It was a bond not only in marriage but in their faith in God.

After their ceremony they got the opportunity to relax and have fun taking  pictures and enjoying this special moment that finally came true!

The reception was perfectly set with the right music, lighting and staff. On occasion, planner Rosie Moore, had to let Andres know that he is the groom today …no work…although he did make a live video introducing the happy couple as him and his wife, but it was all in good fun!!

From the food, to the cake, the decor and the music, the night was filled with laughter and just family and friends in the industry enjoying a relaxed but high energy wedding celebration.

One thing that Andres stated,  ” I now know what brides and grooms go through as they are planning their special day and it is very stressful, but with the right wedding professionals, you do relax.”  What planner Rosie took from that is,  brides and grooms come to you as a client and they have not had a wedding before, they entrust their full trust in you and it is up to us the wedding professionals, to make their dream come true…….

The night ended with a farewell to all the guests one by one, they came to hug the happy couple and wish them the best….

So even though you have had your civil ceremony and say,  one day we will have the real wedding and years go by and you don’t, do not worry, at whatever stage in your life you are ready, the day will come. It does not have to be about the pomp and circumstance, but about the Romance in your Marriage.

Part of marriage is not tolerating each other only, but romancing your spouse……say I love you for any reason daily, not just “love you” I can love cake and ice cream or the movies….really say ” I Love You” and take ownership of the feelings you are expressing.

27 Miracles wishes many more years of romantic and true love to Erika and Andres……

Cutting the Cake and All Too Favorite Tradition

Throughout the wedding day, traditions are followed to symbolize the unity between a bride and groom. For example, a bride and groom cut a slice of their wedding cake and share the slice together, representing their unity as husband and wife.

Since cutting the cake is an important part of the wedding day, a song should be chosen for this moment. Today’s terrific tune of the day is “Sugar Sugar” by The Archies. While this song is an oldie, it describes love in a sweet, fun way. Pun intended.

 

The song, “Sugar Sugar,” will emphasize the experience, creating a memorable wedding reception.

The Wedding of Lorena and Geoffrey

On a beautiful clear blue sky day in March Lorena and Geoffrey were married at the Church of Latter Day Saints in Windermere.  They started their day at the church with a traditional Sealing Ceremony and later the Bride and Groom changed into their formal wedding gown and suit for a family dinner.

The bride and groom wanted to have their close family celebrating this special day with them after the Sealing Ceremony.  The Sealing Ceremony is an ordinance (ritual) performed in Latter Day Saints temples by a person holding the sealing authority.[1] The purpose of this ordinance is to seal familial relationships, making possible the existence of family relationships throughout eternity.[2] LDS teachings place great importance on the specific authority required to perform these sealings.
