From Akua Event Design GroupDestination weddings in Puerto Rico are intimate and provide an opportunity for guests to relax and enjoy the Caribbean. Plus the bride and groom get to have all of their friends and family at one place, to participate in different activities before the wedding.

We were very excited to design the wedding of Kelly Zerbini and Jesse Gottlieb. Especially, because the lovely bride is an interior designer in New York City and with great tastes. She gave us a clear idea of what she wanted for her special day, but she trusted our design and exhorted to use her board as inspiration. Her vision and ours came together flawlessly.

The design included many natural and rustic elements like wood and glass vases for the floral arrangements, drift wood and clementines which added a special magical touch. For the floral design we used white roses, eucalyptus, wax flowers, succulents and freesias. When you walked into the Salón Martorell you felt an air of sophistication, the color scheme and design meshed wonderfully.

From Kayla Barker Fine Art PhotographyI was so delighted when Laura and David asked me to be a part of their elegant wedding in the historic San Juan, Puerto Rico. Their wedding ceremony took place after dark at the historic fort, Castillo San Cristobal. It was a romantic ceremony by candlelight with guitar playing by Pancho Irizarry. Their reception took place at Hotel El Convento, which was built in 1646 as a Carmelite convent and is now a popular venue in Old San Juan. The elegant black and white wedding design by Maria Lugo with floral design by Arquetipo mimicked the beautiful black and white checkered floor. Huge gold candelabras drew your eye up to the arched ceiling and large chandeliers. Laura and David celebrated with their family and friends that had journeyed from all over the United States to historic San Juan. It was a beautiful and romantic night and wedding weekend!
