Tamara and Steven were married on November 3, 2018.
Tamara chose a stunning strapless fit-and-flare gown with a bodice accented with crystals, sweetheart neckline, embroidered overlay skirt, and a train. She accessorized with drop earrings, a solitaire necklace, a jeweled headband, and a full-length embellished veil. Her all-white rose bouquet was wrapped with a white ribbon. Her four bridesmaids wore full-length black one-shoulder gowns and carried smaller versions of the bride’s bouquet.
Steven looked handsome in a white tuxedo jacket with black trousers, white vest, white shirt, black bow tie, white pocket square, and white rose mini bouquet boutonniere. His four groomsmen wore classic black tuxedos with white shirts, black vests, black bow ties, white pocket squares, and white rose boutonnieres.
During the outdoor ceremony, the officiant reminded the couple to recognize their love for each other, and to value their time together, even in the hard times.
Next, at the reception, guests enjoyed a meal of sliced beef tenderloin, sauteed chicken breast, mascarpone sun-dried tomato ravioli, and potatoes au gratin. There was a candy table as well.
In the speeches, the maid of honor, the bride’s sister, talked about her caring and thoughtful nature. The best man spoke about how long he’d known the groom and all they’ve been through together. The brother of the bride shared how Steven won over his sister.
Steven and Tamara danced together for the first time as man and wife to “Rest” by Bruno Mars. Other musical entertainment included a mariachi band.
The three-tier wedding cake included top and bottom white sections and a gold middle section, all with a black ribbon around the base of each layer. Cake decor included white flowers and a sparkly Mr. and Mrs. topper.
We wish the newlyweds a long and joyous marriage!
