Then there was a prayer sealed with the kiss and then thier exit to the song “Son de la Negra, a famous Mariachi number.
Beach Ceremony Set up included a ceremony altar made of bamboo adorned with orange fabrics. There were 14 chocolate tiffany chairs. A great way to decorate the ceremony chairs is with a orange sash tied to the back and an orange flower garland were attached to the chairs on each side of the aisle.
A speaker and wireless microphone for the ceremony was used to make sure the guests can hear the ceremony. We used the speaker after to connect the couples ipod for the reception.
Dinner Reception took place at La Playita Restaurant on Conchas Chinas beach. The reception area was decorated with colored table linens in orange pintuck and there were 2 floral centerpieces for the dinner tables which was a few tables put together to form one large family style table for 18 persons.
We hung 4 orange and ivory chiffon fabrics to enhance the reception area and to give you more privacy from the other restaurant guests. We also had a few decorations for the bonfire area on the beach …10 tiki torches, 10 candle lanterns for the beach, 14 orange cushions laid around on beach mats around the bon fire. A little later in the evening we set off chinese lanterns that went u around 500 feet before they were out of sight. Each guest had the opportunity to send off their own lantern.
Norman and Diane had a Minister’s Ceremony which included a commemorative marriage certificate that is signed at the end of the ceremony.
