The holidays are always a magical time of the year. With love and joy as a foundation of the season, it was the perfect setting for Erika and Anthony to pledge themselves to one another. Erika and Anthony chose Thanksgiving Weekend for its season of blessings, thankfulness, and love. Sari Sosa Events shares the concept of design and planning a timeless wedding. While the couple has known each other for more than ten years, Sari describes both the wedding and their love as “classic and unique. You don’t see young couples last this long anymore.”
To bring this vision of classic, refined romance to life, the first step recommended would be to book your vendors in advance. Another equally important component would be securing your date at the venue of your choosing. Not only is this important to confirm early on for availability, but a venue can determine the décor for your event.
To incorporate the bride’s vision, Sari Sosa worked closely with Invitations by Leston, Epic Hotel and Avant-Gardens on the design and florals. The sweetheart chairs accented the mirrored look with “Mr. and Mrs.” labels on the clear back of the Louis pop chairs. The china was provided by the hotel, which complimented the chic chargers with the beaded rim. Aside from designing the beautiful layout, Avant-Gardens used a variety of whites and peach tones for the floral arrangements to emphasize soft, romantic touches.
To ensure that the lovely couple had the fairytale wedding on this holiday weekend, Sari Sosa stressed the importance of planning ahead for a successful event. “From the moment Erika reached out to me a year from her wedding date, I am happy to report that it was smooth sailing.”
