Elaine & Trevor’s Chic Sapodilla Wedding

Elaine & Trevor’s Chic Sapodilla Wedding


By accident, or maybe by fate, Elaine & Trevor’s chic Sapodilla wedding story began at the altar. The first time the couple laid eyes on each other, Trevor was a groomsman and Elaine, a bridesmaid in the wedding of their closest friends. Who could’ve guessed that ten years later they would find themselves in the same position?

The day started at Silk Cotton Villas, where the bride and her bridesmaids got ready. Elaine wore her hair in an elegant half up-half down style, with an equally soft subtle smoky eye, curtesy of MUA Apryl Weech . She slipped on her lacey high-low gown by Lily’s Bridal and royal blue Badgley Mischka heels. After a quick first-look with her girls, they all left for St. Agnes church.

The theme of the day was romance, achieved by a color scheme of soft blush pinks and deep blues. Delicate cream flowers, curtesy of Linda Bartlett, were strung along the pews of the church. The bridesmaids and groomsmen strutted in pairs of two down the aisle. Their blush dresses against the deep blue suits created a strong but beautiful contrast. Elaine soon followed, on the arm of her father. As they neared Trevor, her father sweetly kissed her cheek and led her into his arms.

The Reception

As always, Sapodilla estates was a sight to behold. The ambience was once again set by florals by Linda Bartlett, and a soft-lighted chandelier.  The wedding party was lively and emotional, filled with heartfelt speeches and stories. Couples fell in love with each other all over again as the night went on. After Elaine and Trevor’s first dance, the dancefloor was filled with couples, young and old, sharing the same immense joy that the newlyweds felt. The wedding cake by Faraji Dawkins  was a sweet treat that perfectly ended the day.
