Grooms might seem baffled by all the details of a wedding, but deep down, they want things to go perfectly as much as the bride. For groom Fraser, that meant arriving to the venue two hours early, anxiously awaiting the ceremony to begin while bride Erin remained calm as she got ready. But of course, their wedding in the relaxing and romantic Rincon, Puerto Rico, was beyond perfect.
The event took place at one of Rincon’s newest villas, The Millers. Inside, Erin got ready with the help of a few loved ones. Her dress featured a V-neck and lots of lace. The train was generously crafted with many layers of lace fabric for a dramatic design.
She accessorized with a gorgeous pair of dangling gold earrings with emerald marquise stones. Her brown hair was curled and hung loose to her shoulders for a relaxed, romantic look.
The gentlemen in the wedding wore white rose boutonnieres with green accents. These small buds coordinated perfectly with the bride’s bouquet. She carried a lovely collection of white roses, succulents, eucalyptus, hypericum berries and assorted greenery. To complete the bridal look, she donned a pretty lace-cap veil, reminiscent of wedding fashion circa the 1920s.
The photographer was able to take many interesting and intimate shots of the bride before the ceremony. One of particular note was the vows, scratched and handwritten on a small piece of paper – something that we often don’t see as guests. She was also photographed walking down the steps of the villa and posing at the bottom, right before she walked down the aisle.
The small gathering of guests was seated on red benches in front of the whitewashed villa with palm trees flanking both sides. The couple said “I do” in a heartwarming, emotional ceremony for which their most cherish loved ones were witnesses.
After the ceremony, the couple took the beach for a few photos. Dressed in black, Fraser looked handsome and dapper in a tuxedo while his bride, Erin, rested her elbow on his shoulder.
The reception featured a long table, similar in color to the benches the guests were seated at during the ceremony, which featured floating candles in large vases down the center. Surrounding the candlelight was not only heaping bunches of greenery, but lots and lots of Hershey Kisses, as well. What a sweet, sweet touch!
You can plan as much as you want but at the end of the day, the day is only perfect if the bride and groom are married. And that truly is the only detail that matters. Fraser and Erin had a picture-perfect day in Puerto Rico and for that we say “Congratulations!”
