Santa Teresa is a stunningly beautiful beach so it’s only fitting it hosted the gorgeous and intimate wedding of of the lovely Melina & handsome Ken. Driftwood poles with orchids, lillies and a touch of ribboning marked the spot for the ceremony.
Guests were encouraged to whet their whistles pre-ceremony with basil strawberry lemonade and water infused with fresh lime.
One inviting table, decked in white and shades of pink, hosted family members from the USA and Germany.
We wanted a Bohemian feel to the entire wedding, since Ken is a musician and surfer. Working with shades of pink, we had runners made out of a paisley material with varying shades of pink to add depth and visual interest to the table.Vases of various shapes and sizes featured submerged dendrobium orchids, gladiolas and antherriums. Light pink ribbons added a decorative touch to the vases.
White paper lanterns added an inviting glow to this feast under the stars. And what a feast! The amazing chef at Milarepa outdid himself on this meal!
The cake table was draped in a lovely pink taffeta pintuck overlay, keeping the mixy/matchy Boho feel of the wedding. After the cake was taken away for cutting, we displayed Melina’s beautiful bouquet of roses, orchids and Stargazer lillies (it smelled as delicious as it looked!).
The paisley paper from the menu was used in the truffle boxes, which held scrumptious truffles from Sibu. Small cans of mints were favours given by Melina to all her guests.
Huge congratulations again to Melina and Ken! What a fantastic wedding! Big props to the talented Dan Power for his fabulous photos.
