Gonzalez Love Story 17 - A Thalatta Estate Wedding

Yailin, Michael, and I were introduced one morning at the Panera Bread near Dadeland. We, along with Cely of Cely's Events, began to discuss #alltheoptions for invitation suites. One thing that was clear was that Yailin knew exactly what she wanted. She knew the look, the colors and font styles she was envisioning from the get go. She was also very clear of what her vision was for their wedding day paper goods. Detail after detail, it became clear that their invitation was going to be memorable and timeless.

The mixture of white, cream, gold, and sage elements really made for a beautiful full suite design. And let's gush over their custom copper wax seal, shall we? 😍 #allthehearteyes But instead of me telling you more about their big day, I'll let Yailin do the talking.

Did your stationery design reflect what your wedding looked and felt like?

"Yes it did, the stationery was beautiful, simple and elegant just like me. LoL The stationery made my wedding more romantic and elegant."

"From the bridal shower invitations down to the wedding vows book, and the guest list mirror, wow, you really knew what I wanted and liked. You executed my thoughts so perfectly (if that makes sense), it was like you were reading my mind. The wedding invitations were stunning and every little detail was perfect."

What did your big day feel like?

"My big day was like a fairy tale. It was more than I expected and envisioned. I wanted a Twilight kind of wedding and I got it. The place it self is beautiful and romantic, but I feel like we made it even more beautiful. My wedding felt like us. I put every effort, time and every detail and it really showed that day. I was very emotional. I have dreamt of my wedding day since I was little and I am very grateful for all the people and vendors who made my dreams come true."

Do you have any advice for future brides in what to look for in a stationer?

"Yes, my advice to future brides is have a clear picture of what they want so that everything will come together and even if they think they don't need it, trust me you do. The Stationer is a crucial part on a wedding. A wedding invitation will tell the guest exactly how your wedding will be and every details matters. At the end, you want your wedding to be perfect."

Note from Monique 🦄 - Because Yailin knew what she wanted her wedding day to look like, she was able to ask questions at our first appointment and prepare her budget to have each of those details. We also began working on her wedding day paper goods 6 weeks before the big day, which helped with planning and overall stress level. 😉

Is there any additional advice you would like to share?

"My advice to all the future brides is to enjoy the process of planning a wedding and to get vendors that will go above and beyond for you, not just because you are paying them but because they love their jobs. That will reflect in their work. Also, enjoy your day and take a moment to reflect and take a mental picture of all the people together that came to celebrate love."

Thalatta Estate Bridal Expo

Okay okay, let's just say I haven't been one of the most consistent bloggers ever...but I want to share these wonderful photos before this year's expo took place. ;)

*~TIME WARP~*

On Sunday, September 27th, We participated in the 3rd Annual Thalatta Estate Bridal Expo. This specific expo has a small soft spot in our hearts as it was the first Bridal Show or Expo we had ever participated in. Needless to say we were excited to go back. 

This time around though, we were super stoked because Tracy-Ann Jarrett's Photonotions whipped out their cameras and got some really nice shots of the day and all of the vendor's booths. I won't lie...ours was my favorite. ;)

On Cloud Carbonnell - A Thalatta Estate Wedding

I met Stephanie and Christopher at a bridal show held at Thalatta Estate. If you ask me what we spoke about that day, I'll be honest and say I don't remember. I just remember pulling out their entry as the runner up of our raffle from the show and the rest was history. 

Upon meeting with Steph, she had a bunch of awesome ideas and already knew exactly what she wanted her Day of Paper Goods to look like. We worked together to come up with some modern, cute ideas that would highlight her rustic theming and use of the colors Coral and Teal.
