Duke Gardens Wedding | Alex & Carlos

His and Hers Wedding Rings.jpg

Everyone knows a July wedding in North Carolina is nothing short of a hot affair! Not only was the weather hot but the dance was on fire all night long. Blending Alex’s Mexican heritage with Carlos’s Columbian heritage made for the perfect combination for a great party! 

By incorporating bright colors and fun patterns into the design scheme, Alex and Carlos were able to add personal details to every aspect of their day. The small intimate wedding highlighted a European vibe of a family dinner party. Guests were escorted to a U shaped table to find their seats were custom Spanish tiles awaited them. The splash of color added to the perfect pop of pattern to the neutral tablescape. The formation of the tables conveyed the home feeling which added to the feeling of a traditional Spanish hosted dinner. Not to be out shined, the ginger jar pattern added perfect amount of southern charm to honor the location of the wedding. 
Having a shared love for craft cocktails always makes for a great night! The bar menu was a customize tile that had authentic signature cocktails. After guests indulged on the cocktails they were treated to an authentic Mexican cuisine dinner that did not disappoint. 

Now onto the dancing! Alex and Carlos dazzled on the dance floor while they entertained guests to a traditional salsa dance. Once the dance floor was open the dancing never stopped!
