My best friend’s wedding

by

My friend Francina, got married over the weekend. The whole thing was a full on display of love & fabulous gowns and people. I’m referring to it as Francina’s Indian wedding. She had two events prior to the actual wedding & one after, being 4 wedding related activities in total. You could say, like a traditional Indian wedding , that it lasted for 3 days. I of course, was one of the TWELVE (yes 12) bridesmaid & had the honor of attending 3 out of 4 of the events (could not for the life of me, wake up for the event the day after the wedding).

Mi amiga Francina se casó este fin de semana pasado. La boda y sus actividades fueron un evento lleno de amor y fabulosidad. Cariñosamente decidí apodar el evento como “la boda india de Francia” ya que, esta duró, lo que dura tradicionalmente una boda india; 3 días. Hubo 2 eventos previos a la celebración a la boda, y uno el día después de la boda (al cual no hubo forma de sacarme de la cama para poder asisitir). Yo fui una de las 12 damas del séquito nupcial, y tuve el honor de estar invitada para compartir con la novia a todos los eventos pre y post boda.

The bride was STUNNING. Her wedding gown, and all of her bridal attire was designed by Puerto Rican fashion designer, David Antonio. She wore a custom made headpiece by designer Eva Guadalupe (check out her fabulous work here Eva Guadalupe).

La novia lucía ESPECTACULAR. Su vestido de novia, y su ajuar para todos los eventos fueron confeccionados por el diseñador de moda David Antonio (quien también vistió a la madrina y la madre del novio, y de la novia). Complementó su vestido con un peine de cabello hecho a la medida por la diseñadora puertorriqueña, Eva Guadalupe en cristales de Swarovski (para ver más de sus piezas opriman aquí: Eva Guadalupe).

Her “something blue” were her beautiful Manolo Blahnik stilettos. The bridesmaids wore a J Crew champagne colored dress with a belt (a gift from the bride) made to match with a lace insert by David Antonio. Its safe to say that most of the ladies who attended the event were wearing gowns by the designer. The attire for the wedding was black tie which called for a lot of sparkle, sequins, lace, beading and shine.

Su “algo azul” fueron sus zapatos de Manolo Blahnik. Las damas utilizaron vestidos de J Crew, complementados con un cinturón con un detalle de encaje del diseñador (un regalo de la novia a las damas). Se podía que la mayoría de las mujeres que asistieron, vistieron trajes del diseñador puertorriqueño. La vestimenta de la boda era estricta etiqueta, y muchos de los trajes que usaron las invitadas eran de encaje, con brillo, y lentejuelas.

The first wedding event was the rehearsal dinner, that was everything but traditional. If this is what the wedding was going to be like then we were off to an amazing start. The rehearsal was held in the restaurat “La Perla” of Hotel La Concha. We were greeted with delicious bellinis & hour d’ ovres. Then the speeches by some of the groomsmen & bridesmaid followed, and some dancing ’till the wee hours of the night.

El primer evento; la cena del ensayo de la boda, la cual fue un buen preámbulo de lo que esperaríamos en el evento principal (la boda). La cena fue en el restaurante “La Perla” de el hotel “La Concha”. Allí, nos recibieron con unos delicios bellinis y aperitivos. Algunos de los miembros del séquito dijeron unas palabras a los novios y bailamos hasta muy tarde en la noche.

The next day they had a party by the pool  to welcome the guests that had come from far away to celebrate with Francina and Juanchi. We had some delicious bbq style food & mojitos.

Al dia siguiente, hubo un evento al aire libre en el área de la piscina de el hotel “La Concha” donde se reunieron varios amigos que vinieron de diferentes partes del mundo a celebrar a Francina y  Juanchi.  Un delicioso menú tipo BBQ y refrescantes mojitos fueron parte de tan divertida velada.

And then there was the wedding. It was literally like a fairytale. Everything was so on point. The ceremony was very emotional & touching, as the now husband and wife said their own vows. The party was held in the Vanderbilt Hotel. Before we entered the main room we had a cocktail hour, filled with Puertorican delicacies like “lechón, alcapurrias and sorrullitos“, and of course some champagne with live music in the background.

And then we entered the salon which was just like an enchanted forest, filled with white flowers everywhere, the flickering of  lots of lights and literally, some trees. The air was filled with good vibes and love, and it was sure to be an enjoyable night. But none of this compared to the happiness on my friends smile. Francina & Juanchi I wish you a life filled with joy and many many blessings. May you always be as happy as you were the day of your wedding!

Y entonces llegó el gran evento, la boda! Fue una boda de ensueño. La ceremonia en la iglesia fue una llena de sentimiento y amor, los novios se dijeron sus propios votos que fue un momento de película. La celebración de la boda fue en el Hotel Vanderbilt. Antes de entrar al salón, estuvimos en un cocktail donde había champagne y aperitivos por doquier y nos deleitaba música en vivo.

Al entrar a el salón, fue como si entraras en un bosque mágico, repleto de flores blancas, mucha luz y árboles. Se respiraban buenas vibras y mucho amor, fue una noche inolvidable. Nada de estas cosas se compara ante la felicidad en el rostro de mi amiga Francina. Francina y Juan Antonio, les deseo una vida llena de amor, alegrías y muchas bendiciones. Espero que su vida juntos sea tan feliz, como lo fue el día de su boda!

I imply, I know it was my choice to learn, but I really thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you possibly can fix in case you werent too busy on the lookout for attention. http://skyslotsnow.ru
