Janelle and Benjamin were married on May 6, 2023.
Janelle dazzled in a strapless ballgown with a sweetheart neckline, corset-style bodice, and a full skirt with a train. She accessorized with drop earrings, a jeweled headband, and a full-length veil with embroidered trim. Her cascade-style bouquet included flowers in shades of red, pink, white, and lavender. Her six bridesmaids wore matching full-length sage green dresses with spaghetti straps, draped necklines, and slit skirts. They carried modified versions of the bride’s bouquet.
For the reception, Janelle changed into a fitted, beaded gown with spaghetti straps, plunging illusion neckline and sides, and a slit skirt.
Benjamin got married in a classic black tuxedo with a white shirt, black bow tie, black pocket square, and a mini bouquet boutonniere. His six groomsmen wore black tuxedos with white shirts, black bow ties and white flower boutonnieres.
The couple were married in an outdoor bilingual ceremony. The officiant spoke about Janelle and Benjamin’s love for each other in both the good times and the hard times.
Afterward, guests dined on a buffet-style meal that included a classic Caesar salad, twice-baked potatoes, penne pasta with roasted red pepper sauce, grilled chicken with olive oil and herbs, and flatiron steak with chimichurri sauce. The signature cocktail was a mojito.
The wedding favors were painted name plates for each guest. Other wedding fun included a photobooth.
In the speeches, which were conducted in Spanish, the maid of honor and the best man toasted the newlyweds.
The four-tier wedding cake had two layers in pink and white designs and two in gold and white designs. It was adorned with flowers and topped with an ornament bearing the couple’s last name.
Benjamin and Janelle left their special day under the signature sparkler exit.
We wish them a long and happy life together!
