While Maria and Solomon were getting ready for their big day, they each managed to send a little gift to each other for a wonderful wedding surprise.
“I had organised for one of the groomsmen to place a box on Solomon’s bed. The box read, ‘to my groom on our wedding day,’ and inside were little gifts. I gave him his shoes, a bottle of King George V scotch, and a personalised book of what I love the most about him. He also did the same, but he gave me a Gucci bag that I had wanted for ages, my wedding perfume, garter and a love letter.”
Over a year worth of planning this wedding certainly paid off, as the bride and groom had an incredible night they were unlikely to forget.
“From the moment I walked into our Church and saw Solomon at the end of the alter, I couldn’t stop staring into his eyes, knowing that we were about to start the next chapter of our lives.”
With a gold and white theme, the wedding was a perfect mixture of classy and elegant.
“Our background was custom made and we had white flooring with a monogram. The floor reflected our chandeliers and the small touch of candles at the base of the bridal table added so much warm light, which created the perfect mood and ambience.”
For the couple’s first dance, the lights in the venue came off, with fireworks lighting up the room and a smoke machine surrounding the couple with a magical fog.
“Dancing together, staring into each other’s eyes, nothing else mattered to us at that moment. I wish I could relive that moment over and over again.”
