We love when our brides and grooms incorporate their culture and passions into their wedding.
Toni and Cristhian’s fall nuptials in Virginia included salsa, coffee, and lots of love. Toni shares, “Cristhian is Colombian and LOVES coffee. We hired a full salsa band and gave away 100% Colombian coffee as party favors.”

How did you meet?
Tell us about the proposal.
We were vacationing in Kaua’i Hawai’i. We were on the beach at night after a magical day in the ocean swimming with sea turtles. Cristhian felt like it was the right time and popped the question on the beach. Nobody around — just us two. It was perfect.
Classy, elegant & timeless.
What was the wedding shopping experience like for you?
I found the dress after shopping at two other stores. It was a hidden gem that I overlooked.
Did you incorporate any culture into your wedding?
If yes, tell us more. Cristhian is Colombian and LOVES coffee lol. We hired a full salsa band and gave away 100% Colombian coffee as party favors.
What is your best memory from your wedding?
Exiting the church when the ceremony ended after saying I do.
What is the best wedding advice you can give to engaged couples?
