The lovebirds had weren’t always a perfect pair. Their feelings and love for each other were always there, but as life sometimes works, other relationships kept them apart. Their families had been close friends and had always wanted them back together, and after noticing the look in each others eyes when they were near, knew it was meant to be. Their storybook romance brought them back together and they decided to never let go again. Their families nicked named them ‘Les Amouroux’, the lovebirds, and with that inspiration their wedding was created.
With a white sand beach, a bride that could pass as a supermodel and ultra chic guests, they were destined for a wedding that will not soon be forgotten. Miriam and Sacha and 30 of their closest friends and family traveled from Miami, Los Angeles, New York, Bahrain and Paris to witness the love birds say their ‘I do’s’. She wore a cowl necked satin and lace gown and walked down the aisle to Peter Cetera’s ‘After All..’, which suited the pairs romantic history to perfection.
Hand dyed silk ombre ribbons held their wedding rings in a shell ready for the ceremony.
Ombre ribbons tied to tags adorned with large drop crystals served as the guest’s program and a way to stay cool. Flip flops were offered by the ‘Shoe Valet’ as guests entered the ceremony site next to a framed sign that read ‘Miriam and Sacha, a perfect pair’ with a custom designed monogram of the lovebirds.
The aisle was lined with drift wood branches and clusters of large white blooms to guide the bride down to her groom.
The bride carried a custom designed bouquet by Little World Design created out of balsa wood flowers, coral, shells and ostrich feathers.
The lyrics were so perfectly suited for their romantic tale it took their guests breaths away. They were too perfect not to share the sweet words with you!
‘After All’ by Peter Cetera
Well, here we are again;
I guess it must be fate.
We’ve tried it on our own,
But deep inside we’ve known
We’d be back to set things straight.
I still remember when
Your kiss was so brand new.
Every memory repeats,
Every step I take retreats,
Every journey always brings me back to you.
After All the stops and starts,
We keep coming back to these two hearts,
Two angels who’ve been rescued from the fall.
After All that we’ve been through,
It all comes down to me and you.
I guess it’s meant to be,
Forever you and me, After All.
When love is truly right
(This time it’s truly right.)
It lives from year to year.
It changes as it goes,
Oh, and on the way it grows,
But it never disappears…
