Karine and Luis' pretty peach wedding with rustic accents incorporated peach-hued flowers as well as real peaches! "We wanted to incorporate peaches into our centrepieces for an outdoorsy garden vibe," explains Karine. "I made peach jam at home for our favours and decorated all the little jars myself. My dress even had peach-coloured lace appliques and delicate beading to match the décor and theme," she adds.
The couple also made sure their loved ones played a part in their wedding ceremony. "A big part of the ceremony involved the people closest to us," says Karine. "We had them read poems we chose that we felt represented us. My brother read in French, and Luis’ sister read in Spanish."
Karine and Luis' reception wrapped up with a 30-minute firework show and dancing until 2am. "We had a great time. More importantly, it was good to see all our friends and family having a great time," Karine says.
