“The day of our wedding, my husband and I worried about nothing, says Astrid. “Our only job was to enjoy ourselves. And we did!” It makes me so proud to see these words in print. Astrid and Andy’s celebration was truly a pleasure to be a part of. Let’s see:
The prettiest church in Miami? Check.
The most authentic and fun couple? Check.
Beautiful people from Europe and Venezuela dancing the night/morning away as if it were Carnival in Brazil? Check.
A group of Venezuelan boys teaching me some fancy salsa moves at 5:30 a.m.? Check.
A grand and historic venue? Check.
Incredible drinks, food and desserts (particularly the alfajores) . Check.
I love my job. Thank you Weddings Illustrated for featuring Astrid and Andy’s Spanish-inspired Wedding. And thank you to my awesome team of vendors for making it happen.
I would be remised not to take the time to send a special hello to Astrid’s family and friends in Venezuela. Thinking of you all during these urgent times and praying for change soon. We see you!
