Ana and James-June 2011
Bali Hai Wedding San Diego from Aaron Thompson on Vimeo.
Enjoy the beautiful wedding that I had the pleasure of working on last summer with Swann Soirees and AS Photography. More here.
A little background information on the wedding from the lovely Brenda of Swann Soirees...
Wedding & Ceremony: Bali Hai- Shelter Island
Wedding Colors: Royal Purple, Sangria Red, Burnt Orange, with accents of green, gold, and ivories.
Theme: NYC meets NOLA - We're utilizing the fine linens & florals to create a formal feel reminiscent of a NOLA mansion dinner party, complete with a lush altar piece for the ceremony, similar to what you would find in a formal garden in one of the southern mansions (the venue was selected solely on availability to the desired wedding date). Our colors, along with some added bling throughout the event elements and an isolated demask-like graphic bring-in Ana's NYC fashionista side.
More about the Couple: Ana is of Puerto Rican heritage out of NY and James is from New Orleans- they met at the Lakeside Rodeo! Talk about being well-rounded (and traveled) couple. They are both urbanites who enjoy a good drink in the company of… each other! As a small business owner, James is a workaholic and gets involved in just about every community-oriented project he can possibly contribute to, he truly enjoys giving back as much as he can, and Ana is always by his side, whether it is serving meals to veterans or selling tickets to fundraisers with James, they two really treasure their time together, and always make it a priority over everything else in their life. Both have a really good sense of humor and are very down to earth. They were both very involved in all the planning & decision making for their wedding.
