AMBAH’S MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT: This one is hard to narrow down. One of my most memorable moments was the vow exchange. We decided to write our own vows. I think exchanging these and seeing my soon to be husbands eyes well up made it all the more perfect. Another thing that made our day perfect was our family/friends that flew in to be a part of our big day. It meant the world to us. And lastly the look of happiness on my parents face as they both walked me down the aisle. They glowed.
STATIONERY: Love Logo #15 wedding invitation and coordinating stationery
WHY DID AMBAH CHOOSE THIS INVITATION?: We really wanted something that represented our garden theme and fell in love with the fact that we would have our own logo.
AMBAH’S FAVORITE WEDDING DETAIL: There wasn’t just one detail that stood out. Since I was living abroad and was having the wedding at home in Trinidad , my sister in law helped me put together my dream wedding palette so that my parents will have a guide to follow. It was seeing how they transformed what I had on paper into the wedding I always wanted.
Congrats Ambah and Amal! Thanks for sharing your special day with us!
