CELEBRATE People often ask me about the best wedding I’ve ever attended. Thinking back, one of my favorites took place in Vienna. It was an incredible wedding weekend. The experience began as soon as I landed and checked into a luxury hotel, where a special welcome gift prepared by the executive chef awaited. After flying all those hours, being treated to an array of bite-size gastronomical delights accompanied by champagne, made me feel welcome and special. The next morning, the other guests and I boarded a train that took us on a two-hour ride to the ceremony site passing through picturesque areas including Salzburg, where The Sound of Music had been filmed. On the train, two kinds of champagne along with sumptuous truffles were served. When we arrived, horse-drawn carriages were waiting to take us to the chapel, and the couple arrived by helicopter. It was like a scene from a movie. After the ceremony, the couple emerged from the chapel and joined a marching band that awaited. The rest of the guests followed in a procession as we all took the path to the top of a hill toward a castle where a beautiful luncheon was served with elegant, yet minimalistic décor. Later that night, back in Vienna, carriages picked us up once again to transport us to the wedding reception, which was a masquerade ball. I thought the theme, “Amadeus,” was brilliant, and the ambiance was very sexy, moody and glamorous. We all dined on incredible food, a live band provided music, Brazilian dancers performed, the dessert displays were fabulous, and the festivities continued with an all-night afterparty. Before I knew it, it was 7 a.m. and a “hangover soup” was being served to the guests—but the wedding was so incredibly fun, I felt like I didn’t want it to end. I think the main reason why this wedding stands out so much is because there wasn’t one single element that overshadowed the others. Everything was exquisite, from the décor, to the train ride with champagne and truffles, to the

way dinner was served during the reception. It was how it all came together so seamlessly, and how we guests (who traveled in from around the world) were made to feel. Each guest felt special just being there. As Editor-in-Chief of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style magazine, I always tell people that every detail of a wedding is important—the dress, the cake, the tabletop designs, etc. However, having a great photographer that documents these memories is one of the most important things because those images and the memories they evoke is what you will have to share with your loved ones for years to come. In the end, a wedding’s success has everything to do with how the‑ guests were made to feel and what a wonderful time they had. I recently attended a friend’s wedding, and I experienced the same feeling I had in Vienna back in 2003. If you’re hosting a destination wedding—or any kind of wedding, for that matter—remember to think things out and consider the small details that will make a big difference to your guests. Most of all, remember that your wedding is a celebration of the life commitment you’re making and the journey you’re about to take together. So, be sure to enjoy the process and have fun.

YOUR BODY: THE ULTIMATE MASTERPIECE Body Cast Photography:

Nat Rea Photography

Throughout

history, artists around the globe have been intrigued by the human body. Everything about the body, from its dimensions to its angles, has served as inspiration for some of the world’s most incredible works of art. Today, Bristol Glassworks, based in Rhode Island, offers women and men the opportunity to have their own unique form immortalized in the most spectacular way with custom crystal body casts—a showstopper that makes for the perfect wedding gift to one’s betrothed, or a stunning piece to display in a couple’s first home. These body casts, part of a collection called “Life Studies,” evolved from co-founder, Steven Weinberg’s vast exploration of glass as a material and the practice of transforming it into an

art form. Steven was one of the original pioneers of the American Studio Glass Movement, which began in Ohio in the 1950s. “During this time, glass started being used as an artistic medium, as opposed to a utilitarian object,” describes Sharon Oleksiak, Steven’s partner and Creative Director of Bristol Glassworks. “In the late1970s, many glass creations were organic and free-flowing, whereas Steven’s pieces displayed geometric elements and a sense of containment.” Since meeting each other in 1986, Sharon and Steven have leveraged their work with glass into a name that has garnered attention from celebrities like Sir Elton John and Olivia Newton-John—both of whom have purchased pieces to grace their homes. They have also been commissioned to create pieces for

the Elton John AIDS Foundation, the Terezin Music Foundation and WIN Against Breast Cancer. Sharon is a firm believer in giving back through many pro bono glass projects. The Life Studies collection stemmed from an experimental mindset, as nobody was creating such detailed and high quality body casts 25 years ago. “Steven was always pushing the envelope,” says Sharon. “It really started as a challenge to ourselves in terms of seeing how much detail of the human body we could translate into glass. At this point, we can now pick up the tiniest goose bump on someone’s skin and really capture what makes us each individuals and human.” Since the body casts are made from custom molds, it’s an exciting and interactive process for any bride to experience. “You need to be adventuresome to do it,” Sharon advises. “It’s really for someone who wants to do something different. You’re making a print. It’s like a photograph from a certain time and a certain place in your life. Something that you will have forever as a marker of that time.” The body casts are made of optical quality crystal and can weigh up to 180 pounds. After the mold is created, raw glass is slumped into the cavity of the mold and then fired in

a kiln. “Glass is a very temperamental material, so you need to treat it very gently,” notes Sharon. “A casting can take up to two weeks in the kiln. We bring the temperature up and down very slowly.” Once the firing is complete, the mold is removed from the kiln and broken apart to reveal the crystal form within. The mold can never be used again, guaranteeing each cast is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

“This is the first time we’re opening up this service to women and men who want to have a cast of their body in crystal,” Sharon states. “I think it has to do with timing and society being more comfortable with nudity, freedom and pride about the body. If we’re going to add objects to the world, they should be welldesigned and thoughtful. Glass is a sustainable material, made from sand. It’s something really beautiful, because glass has been around for 5,000 years. Yet while it is ancient, it is also contemporary and highly technical—that has always appealed to me. I’m a believer in designing objects of beauty that are not to be thrown away. Well-designed glass will stand the test of time and age well.” Steven Weinberg has work in the permanent collections of 60 art museums around the world. These include the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in the Palais du Louvre in Paris, the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. > Written by Lauren Malamala For more stories and resources visit WeddingStyleMagazine.com

“WE HAD STARTED A FAMILY FIRST. I THINK WE DID THINGS BACKWARDS, BUT IT WAS A PERFECT BACKWARDS.” MONIQUE MONGALO AND COREY BREWER August 18, 2018. Beverly Hills, California

Photography:

Jessica Claire Photography


72


Some relationships may begin with a dramatic first encounter, but for Monique Mongalo and Corey Brewer, things transpired in a much more casual and natural way. As a professional basketball player in the NBA, Corey was in Los Angeles for the playoffs when a mutual friend set him up on a date with Monique. “We don’t have a cool love story,” Monique laughs. “It was very informal, and he’s been stuck with me ever since.” “I thought she was really beautiful,” Corey adds. “We just started talking. And like she said, I’ve been stuck with her ever since.” It was about four years into their relationship when Corey decided to pop the question. The couple had gone to dinner at one of their favorite LA restaurants, and Corey waited until after the meal to propose in front of a fountain. Once

Monique saw the ring, the only words she could repeat were, “Is this real? Is this real?” Although the proposal may have come as a surprise, there was no question that the couple had already decided to spend their lives together. “We were basically already married,” Monique shares. “We had started a family first. I think we did things backwards, but it was a perfect backwards.” The wedding planning process was relatively simple for the bride-to-be. “I knew exactly what I wanted,” she explains. “I wanted it to be very different from your typical, all white, coveredin-flowers type of wedding. I wanted more of a design and things you don’t often see. We also went very dark—black draping, dark gray carpets, and the lighting was very moody. I wasn’t scared to take any risks.”

Sunny Ravanbach and her team at White Lilac were instrumental in executing every detail to perfection. “Working with Sunny was amazing,” says Monique. “She has a big team, and everyone I met was absolutely fabulous. They have the most amazing ideas and they really think outside the box.” When the wedding day arrived, the bride assumed she’d be spending the morning relaxing, getting pampered, and sipping champagne. Like

any doting mother, however, she spent most of her prep time in mom mode, tending to her son and getting him ready. There were no prewedding jitters, although she did have a fleeting moment of nervousness as the ceremony began. “Right when I got to the gate at the entrance of the aisle, I freaked out,” she recalls. “And it wasn’t because I was nervous about marrying Corey—it was because the spotlight was on me.” Despite the unease of having all eyes on her, the bride continued with her solo walk down the aisle to the music of a live orchestra, wearing a custom wedding gown by Leah Da Gloria with a 23-foot train. “The ceremony was really quick,” she continues. “I kept stressing that I wanted something fast, fun and to the point. I feel like a lot of people dread going to weddings, and I wanted it to be fun as soon as the guests walked in. It went by really fast, but it was beautiful.” Guests were served food and drinks upon arrival—not to mention, elegantly passed trays of shots during the ceremony—and the festivities continued with a cocktail hour. The wedding reception was an all-out party that was completely focused on Monique and Corey’s guests. “We skipped all the formal stuff,” explains Monique, referring to traditions like the bouquet toss and garter toss. “I just wanted everyone to eat, drink and dance.”


Choosing not to spend time away from their son, the newlyweds have traveled together since the wedding but have yet to go on an official honeymoon. Monique says they may plan a romantic getaway within the next year, but there’s no rush. “Our life is pretty great,” she says. “I feel like we’re on our honeymoon right now.” > Written by Lauren Malamala For more feature weddings and resources visit WeddingStyleMagazine.com

SHE SAID, “YES,” WHILE THEY BOTH DISSOLVED INTO HAPPY TEARS. DJAMILA CELINA MELCHERTS SNELDERS AND JOHANNES HENRICUS PETRUS SNELDERS MELCHERTS August 28, 2018. Mallorca, Spain

“Ours is a crazy love story,” says Djamila Celina Melcherts Snelders. The famously pink-haired DJ, model and reality TV star from the Netherlands was in Mallorca with friends when she was introduced to Johannes Henricus Petrus Snelders Melcherts. “He was the complete package,” says Djamila. “I knew from the first moment that he was the love of my life.” Not wishing to waste time, they moved in together the next day and have barely been separated since. Less than a year after they met, Johannes planned a trip for them. They went to four destinations in four days, jetting from Amsterdam to Rome to Barcelona and finally Ibiza. “Every time we traveled to a new place, Johannes gave me a present,” explains Djamila. Each gift

box contained a different cut of diamond ring and a poem written by Johannes celebrating the word engraved on its band—soul mates, magic, love and queen. Not satisfied with this grand gesture, Johannes had more in store. In Ibiza, he booked an entire club so they could dine alone. He walked Djamila out onto the beach where he nervously tried three times to get out his rehearsed proposal. Finally, he gave up and dropped to one knee. She said, “Yes,� while they both dissolved into happy tears.


Soon after, they moved to Mallorca, where she discovered Purobeach Illetas. The new beach club had stunning views of the ocean and Djamila determined that hers would be the first wedding held there. “We decided to limit the guest list to include our closest friends and family,” explains Djamila, who sent invitations to people from Holland, Germany and Africa. The ceremony, held on a spit of land jutting into the ocean, was officiated by her friend of 30 years, who had come to know Johannes well. Djamila’s romantically sensual couture gown featured a dramatic train, while Johannes’ suit (with matching shorts for later) sported an iridescent shimmer and a portrait of the bride on the jacket lining. As the bridal party came down the aisle, music was provided by friend Ben Saunders, who won The Voice talent show in Holland, along with a Gospel choir. Playfully rewritten vows included, “For rich and for richer, in health and healthier, and for sushi and champagne.” The last pairing is a tongue in cheek nod to their nicknames, which reference what they have for lunch everyday to honor their good fortune. For Johannes, their first kiss as newlyweds was certainly special. Curious boaters, who had gathered offshore to watch the proceedings, blew their air horns in a cacophony of congratulations. “Our guests were clapping, there were people screaming, and the horns from the boats made the moment memorable,” he says.


Afterwards, the bride and groom filled a tower of champagne glasses with their favorite Möet champagne, which flowed throughout the entire reception. “We didn’t serve beer or wine, just champagne,” says Djamila. During the five-course al fresco dinner, friends of Johannes treated guests to a literal “A to Z” list about the bride and groom. “The guys all wore pink wigs and were funny and emotional,” says Djamila. Nevertheless, the couple was so happy when it was over that they blasted the men with a champagne shower. Other entertainment included a drag

queen singing traditional music from the Netherlands, friends serenading the couple and a DJ. Throughout the reception, Djamila and Johannes had eyes only for each other. “We danced the entire evening and were so into each other that we barely saw anyone else,” she says. A pleasure trip to Mauritius before the wedding preempted a honeymoon after. However, several months later, the two took a spur-ofthe-moment honeymoon. After checking into where they could find the best weather, they headed to Dubai to relax, sun and shop. The couple was separated for the first time since they met for a stint on Holland’s GRACE ORMONDE WEDDING STYLE

Celebrity Wife Swap. Since then, Djamila has declared that all further TV shows will be shot in their own home, where they will remain sideby-side. > Written by Francine Kaplan For more feature weddings and resources visit WeddingStyleMagazine.com

“ONE THING I KNEW FOR SURE—THE MOMENT I MET HIM, I FELL IN LOVE.”

AMANDA ROSE AND GREG KISELYUK June 30 & July 1, 2018. Beverly Hills, California

“Many people asked me afterward if I was nervous, and the truth is I was not at all,” Greg says of the proposal. “I am proposing to the girl of my dreams, there is nothing to be nervous about.” They planned to have the wedding at the Beverly Hilton because they were able to accommodate all of their guests and allowed for radically different venue changes between events. The outdoor ceremony had a luxurious garden party feel, while the indoor reception was all elegant glamour.

Choosing Amanda’s dress, however, wasn’t as easy. She knew she wanted a big, structured couture ballgown with sparkly floral details, but she couldn’t find it anywhere. After trying on countless dresses and meeting with numerous designers, Amanda finally visited the Galia Lahav store in Los Angeles. “I had an appointment with Galia Lahav herself, and we brainstormed ideas until we finally created the perfect dress,” Amanda says. “They made my dream dress come to life and I am forever thankful. I could not believe that I was the

It was Amanda Rose’s grandparents who played matchmaker for her and Greg Kiselyuk. They met Greg at a friend’s house and immediately went into Cupid mode, urging Amanda to meet him. When Amanda didn’t accept his Facebook friend request, she got a call from Grandma yelling at her about why she hadn’t friended him. “I was laughing because I was more shocked that she knew how Facebook works and what a friend request even is,” Amanda says. “Who knew that with the click of a button, he would become the love of my life and my future husband.” Facebook messaging turned into a five hour-long dinner date. “As crazy as it sounds, I knew from meeting him for just a few hours that he would be my future husband,” she says. “One thing I knew for sure—the moment I met him, I fell in love.” For the proposal, Greg took Amanda on a helicopter ride that landed in a Beverly Hills vineyard, one of her favorite places. He had set up a giant heart made of red roses and got down on one knee in the middle of it, just before sunset. Afterward, the couple headed to Amanda’s parents’ house for a surprise engagement party with their families, followed by a dinner with their closest friends.


bride about to wear this dress. It truly was a fairytale experience.” Greg approved: “Amanda’s wedding dress was absolutely stunning. She looked so incredibly beautiful.” There were many highlights for the couple over the two-day event. Greg enjoyed the ceremony and the amazing feeling of watching his soon-to-be wife walk down the aisle toward him. Both of them loved the party on the second day, which started with a gondola ride and flash mob dance. A gondolier took Amanda and Greg down a lake to their awaiting friends and family, all while being serenaded by operatic performers. As they docked and stepped out onto the dance floor, they surprised their guests with a flash mob dance that they’d rehearsed with 25 family members and friends. “The dance was choreographed by celebrity dancers, and we indeed nailed it,” Greg says. “Both days were such a blast, and I definitely remember the pain my poor feet felt days af-

ter!” Amanda says. “The wedding was a dream. It seems like we had the most creative and artistic experts in Los Angeles working as a team to make our wedding unforgettable.” For their honeymoon, the couple spent several weeks in Bali, Singapore and Hong Kong. They went all over Bali, hiking to jungle waterfalls in Ubud, hanging out with monkeys, and hitting Seminyak’s lively beach clubs. In Singapore and Hong Kong, they loaded up on tours to learn more about each spot’s history. “It was very nice to explore different parts of our world and learn the culture and history of

each unique place we visited, as well as to spend time with each other, reminiscing about memories from our wedding, which we will cherish forever,” Amanda says. > Written by Allyson Reedy For more feature weddings and resources visit WeddingStyleMagazine.com

“OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WERE THERE FOR US… IT WAS AN AMAZING PARTY EVEN BEFORE DINNER WAS SERVED!” ALEXANDRA BARBEE AND ROBERT WOODS III July 7, 2018. Dana Point, California

Photography:

Duke Images

The first time Robert Woods III approached Alexandra Barbee, she blew him off. “We were at a party and she was amazing in all white with a beautiful smile and great legs,” he says. But her friends froze him out thinking, “Who is this guy?” Later, after a mutual acquaintance urged her to get to know him, Alexandra introduced herself to Robert. They talked, exchanged information and the next evening went on a casual date. Robert—at that time a pro football player for the Buffalo Bills, who now plays for the LA Rams—was home in Los Angeles in the off-

season, and he and Alexandra started to see more of each other. When he returned to Buffalo, they stayed in touch. “Not a day went by when we didn’t talk, text or FaceTime,” says Robert. She flew cross-country to visit him and he spent his breaks in California with her. After two years of dating, they took a trip to the Turks and Caicos Islands, where Alexandra found their room filled with white roses—her favorite. On their final night, Robert arranged a private dinner on the beach. “It was sunset and there were tiki torches and champagne,” says


100


Alexandra. “We felt like the entire beach was ours alone.” Between courses they went for a stroll, and Robert began to calmly profess his love for her before dropping to one knee and asking her to marry him. She said, “Yes,” and on returning to their room discovered the white roses had been replaced with red ones. Alexandra’s vision for a formal all white wedding required a venue that was both luxurious and modern, so the couple chose the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California. Guests were asked to wear all black, which provided a striking contrast to Alexandra and Robert dressed in white. Immediately before the ceremony, an attendant stopped by their dressing rooms to deliver private vows that the bride and groom had written just for each other. Carrying those words in their hearts, they headed to the altar. Live cello music accompanied the wedding party down the aisle, while a dove release delighted the crowd during the couple’s first kiss as husband and wife. When the newlyweds entered the reception for their first dance, the guests stood and

surrounded the dance floor to celebrate the couple’s new status. “Our family and friends were there for us,” says Alexandra. “It was an amazing party even before dinner was served!” Along with the all white theme, décor elements included a mirrored wall with handpainted seating assignments, mirrored tabletops and mirrored dinner menus. Gold accents appeared on monograms, tableware and the edges of the wedding cake. The couple sat at a sweetheart table for dinner, shedding tears as their parents spoke, and laughing at the best man’s stories. “It was a crazy, fun party,” says Robert. “Seven-year-olds were dancing and 77-year-olds were dancing.” According to Alexandra everyone had all eyes on them at one time or another as they broke out their best dance moves. It seems that even while honeymooning, a football player’s work follows him. With Robert set to attend training camp immediately upon their return, daily workouts were a given. “He had me up every morning because he had to come back in shape,” Alexandra playfully laments. But a Grecian honeymoon in three parts, providing the best of everything—sightseeing and culture in Athens, romance and relaxation in Santorini, and partying and shopping in Mykonos— more than made up for any inconveniences. > Written by Francine Kaplan For more feature weddings and resources visit WeddingStyleMagazine.com

“I FEEL SO BLESSED TO SHARE THIS EXPERIENCE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.” ALLA KOSOVA AND SCOTT LAROQUE June 9, 2018. Ravello, Italy

Photography::

Gianni di Natale Photographers

Alla Kosova was at a party in Las Vegas, taking in the scene from the VIP section, when she asked a friend to find her a husband. Her friend looked at the crowd and pointed to a stranger, who turned out to be Scott LaRoque. Impressed with her friend’s pick, Alla motioned for Scott to come over for a proper introduction. That first encounter turned out to be rather awkward, as Alla didn’t know what to do or say once she met Scott. She ended up dismissing him, which she immediately regretted. “I went on the dance floor and started dancing with some other girl,” Scott recalls. “As I was walking off, Alla chased me down and apologized.” The next day, Alla called Scott and picked him up in her Ferrari for their first date. At the time, Scott was an up-and-coming entrepreneur, whereas Alla had already built a successful business, sold it, retired, and apprenticed as a hobby. “I was pretty nervous,” he shares. “I had a $20 shirt on, so I went to the Bellagio to find an


106


ironed shirt. I ended up having to buy one from Giorgio Armani, and I still have it.” Today, the couple refers to that shirt as Scott’s “first investment in their relationship.” Despite any differences in their professional lives, Alla was more than happy with her new love interest. “As hot as he is—we’re talking a 50 out of 10—he has this humility to him,” she says. “He’s driven, but he’s still down to earth. You don’t find many people like that nowadays.” In 2014, the two sealed the deal when Scott proposed at the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

For the bride and groom-to-be, the wedding planning process was nothing short of life changing. “Our guests say we have ruined every wedding they have ever been to or will ever go to,” Alla shares. “Not to mention, Preston Bailey did our flowers, and he was just incredible.” With wedding planner Jennifer Zabinski of JZ Events at the helm, everyone’s hard work culminated in a spectacular five-day destination wedding in Italy. Kicking off their wedding week with a welcome night gathering, Alla and Scott had an epic itinerary of events planned for their 120 guests. There was a beach day; a night when

guests boarded a sailboat, with sails donning the couple’s family crest, and headed to an allwhite party at a nightclub; and car enthusiasts were elated when their very own Mille Miglia was created, featuring antique cars brought in from Monaco. Each guest was able to drive a car for the day, and the women received Dolce & Gabbana scarves while the men were gifted with Ray-Ban sunglasses. When the wedding day arrived, the bride walked down the aisle in a custom Reem Acra gown, and the groom was dressed in a Tom Ford suit made from custom LaRoque fabric. After being pronounced husband and wife,


109

guests were in awe when Andrea Bocelli appeared and began to sing—a surprise the couple had kept secret. An immaculate all-white reception followed, and every detail exceeded the couple’s expectations. “I feel so blessed to share this experience with friends and family,” says Scott. “We’ve experienced so many cultures from around the world, and it’s a gift to be able to share that with other people.”


110

Between the two of them, the newlyweds have seven children. So, to begin their multimonth honeymoon, they spent time in Rome as a family until the kids flew home with their grandparents. Alla and Scott then went country hopping around destinations including Spain and Portugal, and even attended some World Cup matches.

“IT WAS LIKE NOTHING ELSE EXISTED AND IT WAS JUST THE TWO OF US.”

ROBERT HOLSTON AND PABLO OLIVEIRA November 18, 2018. Miami Beach, Florida

Photography:

Allan Zepeda Photography

It was a stormy April afternoon in Miami Beach when Robert Holston and Pablo Oliveira were shopping for lunch and groceries at Whole Foods. Pablo was with a friend and scanning the rotisserie chicken display when he asked, “Do you want some naked chicken?” He then turned to realize it wasn’t his friend standing next to him, but Rob. After laughing it off and going their separate ways, Pablo’s friend tracked down Rob to get his phone number; and a few text messages later,


Pablo and Rob made plans to meet up that night for a beer. “He went in for chicken and left with beef,” Rob jokes. Fast forward three years into their relationship, when the pair was vacationing in Italy for the summer. Unbeknownst to Rob, Pablo had already purchased an engagement ring, but wasn’t sure when the right moment would present itself. The last stop of their trip was the

114

Amalfi Coast, where they stayed in a beautiful hotel overlooking the Mediterranean. Pablo decided to ask the hotel if they could locate a violinist, and later that night a musician was beneath their balcony, performing “Nessun Dorma” from Puccini’s Turandot—an opera the couple had seen together at Lincoln Center. “Oh, this is nice that the hotel has a violinist playing during happy hour,” Rob commented, not realizing it was part of a plan orchestrated by his then-boyfriend. In his excitement, Pablo handed Rob the boxed engagement ring without a word. Rob eventually asked, “Is there a question associated with this?” Pablo finally popped the question

and, of course, Rob accepted. Almost a year later, after Pablo repeatedly claimed he wasn’t engaged because Rob never proposed, Rob recreated that same engagement on the balcony of their new home. Thanks to iTunes, he even managed to have the same song playing in the background. As the founder and CEO of Nüage Designs, the wedding planning process was nothing

new for Pablo. “Since I’m in the industry, in my mind, I wanted to do something that didn’t look like a typical wedding,” he shares. “We wanted to make it feel personal and like we were just having friends over,” Rob adds. To create the perfect ambiance of warmth and intimacy, Pablo and Rob hosted the wedding ceremony at their home, inviting 100 of their closet friends, colleagues and family


members. The grooms were dressed in Giorgio Armani and Tom Ford suits, and Poe, their adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, fulfilled his role as “Grooms’ Best Friend” to perfection. At one point, their photographer had to ask if they could take some photos without the dog. “It went by so fast,” says Rob. “My favorite part of the day was listening to Pablo recite his vows.” “For the reception, we chose the Faena Hotel Miami Beach because it’s very representative of the Golden Era of Miami,” Pablo explains. “That’s what we wanted our guests to experience.” The elegant décor was art deco inspired with tropical elements. Alluding to the grooms’ love of entertainment, the night was filled with multiple live performances including a band, synchronized swimmers and a singer who crooned famous hits from the 1930s. Guests were treated to a delectable menu beginning with Hemingway daquiris served


during cocktail hour. The food was chosen to represent everything the couple loves, such as dim sum. Unlike most Faena weddings, dinner was served in a spectacular setting around the pool, and wedding cake was served during the afterparty. “Because I was heavily involved in the décor, I was very stressed up until the wedding weekend started on Friday,” Pablo states. “But after that, I just turned everything off and was able to enjoy the company of our friends and every moment of the weekend we had created. I’m a little shy, so I wasn’t thrilled about having the ceremony and everything; but once I walked in with Rob and stepped on the riser, it was like nothing else existed and it was just the two of us. Every moment we exchanged with every guest was very special.” The newlyweds are currently planning on a March honeymoon—potentially somewhere cold, so they can go skiing.

“IT WAS A FEELING THAT YOU CAN’T PUT INTO WORDS.”

DANIELLE GHAFFARI AND CHARLES “C.J.” WATSON July 21, 2018. Las Vegas, Nevada

Photography:

Brian Leahy Photography

High school sweethearts Danielle Ghaffari and Charles “C.J.” Watson met young—she was just 15 and he 16—but C.J. knew from the beginning that she was the great love of his life. “To say you met your soul mate at such a young age is rare, but we fell in love so quickly,” Danielle says. “C.J. always told me, ‘We are gonna get married one day, and we are going to have this big wedding with all of our friends and family.’ He definitely stayed true to that.”


122

After high school, C.J. went to the University of Tennessee to play basketball while Danielle stayed in their hometown of Las Vegas, but they always maintained a strong relationship. In 2016, the couple had their second daughter, and for her birthday in August, C.J. took Danielle and their two little girls to the top of the Paris hotel for a huge surprise on the viewing deck. “As I turned the corner, stroller and all, there was C.J. down on one knee asking for my hand in marriage,” Danielle says. “We then went to my birthday party, which was now an

engagement party as well, and told everyone the big news.” They stuck to Vegas for their ultra-chic wedding, the last held at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, now the Waldorf Astoria. They chose it for its clean lines, contemporary feel and–perhaps most importantly to Danielle–because it didn’t have a casino and allowed for maximum privacy for their event. The décor was very monochromatic, with over-the-top white florals and marble floors, but with added pops of gold and glam. “I’m


half Persian,” Danielle says, “and we Persian girls love gold and glam!” The gold lettering of their initials on the aisle and the giant grey rose custom wall behind the band were particularly glamorous, but neither matched Danielle’s showstopping wedding gowns. For the ceremony, Danielle wore a stunning dress by Ines Di Santo and then changed into a Berta gown and cape. One of the most memorable parts of Danielle’s day was during the ceremony, when she walked down the aisle to her husband. “It was a feeling that you can’t put into words. Being able to incorporate our children into our wedding, and seeing how beautiful they were as they walked down the aisle—and our toddler actually making it down the aisle, running to Daddy!” The highlight for their friends and family was the choreographed first dance, which included a very special guest star: the couple’s older daughter, Ayanna. “She and C.J. did an upbeat father-daughter dance. Definitely the highlight of the wedding!” she says. After the wedding, the couple headed to Bora Bora for an action packed honeymoon. Danielle planned all sorts of activities, like snorkeling, kite surfing, boat rides and ATV tours. They started the trip at the beautiful InterContinental Bora Bora Resort Thalasso Spa and ended at The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort.

“It is truly the most breathtaking place we had ever been,” Danielle says. “It was the most amazing trip and place to be as husband and wife for the first time. Although we didn’t want to ever leave Bora Bora, we missed our girls tremendously and were eager to get back to their smiling faces.” > Written by Allyson Reedy For more feature weddings and resources visit WeddingStyleMagazine.com

TURKS and CAICOS

previous spread and this page:

COMO Parrot Cay comohotels.com

Synonymous with turquoise waters, white sand beaches and an unmistakable air of luxury, the Turks and Caicos Islands are an idyllic tropical destination for honeymooners. Whether couples wish to experience the thrill of diving among beautiful coral reefs, indulge in fresh seafood and gourmet delicacies, or spend their days relaxing poolside, there are activities and amenities that cater to every whim. While Turks and Caicos comprises 40 islands and cays, only eight are inhabited. The capital island, Grand Turk, and Salt Cay are steeped in Caribbean history, rustic charm and Bermudian architecture, as well as offer some of the archipelago’s best diving locations.


Providenciales, however, is the most visited location in Turks and Caicos, teeming with hotels, restaurants and attractions. It’s also home to Grace Bay Beach—known as the “best beach in the world”—where couples will find the most exquisite private villas for spending their honeymoon in romantic seclusion. The Private Villa Collection by Grace Bay Club features a portfolio of gorgeous villas with private pools. As the most opulent of the collection, the La Dolce Vita villa is a nine-bedroom masterpiece spanning four acres of beachfront property. Valued at $25 million, the villa’s exclusive amenities include two onsite staff members and private chef services. Guests of Grace Bay Club are free to spend their days relaxing at the Anani Spa, dining at Infiniti Restaurant & Raw Bar, or lounging poolside and ordering frozen drinks from the club’s swim-up bar. Private canopied daybeds are also provided on the beach, and the staff are readily available to fulfill any requests visitors have while basking in the sun. Bordering the reefs of the Northwest Point Marine National Park, the Amanyara Villas allow couples to escape into their own world of peace and tranquility. The villas are located on an 18,000-acre nature preserve, and the dive center at Amanyara offers all levels of scuba

instruction for guests who’d like to explore the renowned coral reefs of Turks and Caicos. After a day of diving, newlyweds can unwind at the Serenity Villa Spa, or enjoy spa treatments in the comfort of their own private villa. Gansevoort Turks + Caicos also boasts seven luxurious villas tucked into an elevated hillside overlooking the bay at Turtle Tail. Located 2.5 miles away from the main resort, each of these villas is outfitted with either four or five bedrooms, while floor-to-ceiling windows create an airy, modern aesthetic. Amenities include the following: two pools—one private oceanfront infinity pool and one courtyard pool with a waterfall; an over-the-water swim platform with direct ocean access; a sunken outdoor fire pit and lounge area; and housekeeping services twice daily. When couples head to the resort for a romantic dinner for two, they can choose between two restaurants, Stelle and Zest, and savor gourmet dishes with Caribbean flavors. “Pink Hour” may also be enjoyed at Pink Bar on Grace Bay Beach, where a curated selection of blush champagnes, rosé wines and pink cocktails are served. At Long Bay Beach, honeymooners can check in to the Villas at The Shore Club for accommodations brimming with Caribbean elegance. With up to 8,800 square feet of space, each villa has a courtyard, private pool, heated whirlpool, sauna, private housekeeper, personal

concierge, private chef, butler and special entertainment options to create a fully customized honeymoon celebration. Guests of The Shore Club receive complementary use of water sport equipment, from kayaks to stand-up paddleboards. And with its shallow, waveless waters, Long Bay Beach is the perfect place to go kite surfing. For a special night, couples may also want to charter a private yacht, complete with dinner, drinks and a full crew. Sail for a day or take an overnight excursion throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands. If newlyweds are in search of the ultimate in luxury and seclusion, then a honeymoon spent at Parrot Cay is a must. This private island is home to COMO Parrot Cay, one of the most exclusive resorts in Turks and Caicos. COMO’s beachfront villas feature heated plunge pools, private sun decks, outdoor garden showers and direct access to a mile-long white sand beach. The COMO Shambhala retreat offers holistic, Asian-inspired spa treatments, as well as a jacuzzi garden, Pilates studio and double massage rooms. Gourmet restaurants churn out fresh and inventive cuisines, and days can be spent chartering private boats, scuba diving, exploring an historic plantation trail or observing the cay’s wildlife with an eco-tour.


Locals insist that the best way to truly experience Turks and Caicos is to explore every island and cay, taking in their individual beauty and charm. No matter where you stay in the archipelago, make use of the boats and ferries sailing between the islands and fill your honeymoon with the perfect blend of outdoor adventures and restful villa life. > Written by Lauren Malamala For more stories and resources visit WeddingStyleMagazine.com
