Patricia and James DeFilippis

Patricia always dreamed of finding her Prince Charming, but what she didn’t realize is that the whole time growing up he was just around the corner! They grew up in the same neighborhood, but they didn’t meet until about two years ago. James, her now husband, went off and started his life by marrying and going to dental school. However, he and his wife separated six years ago. Patricia knows that it’s all about timing and they weren’t meant to meet until two years ago. When that time came, she knew he was the one for her by their third date!

It was on a Saturday morning that I came into work to start setting up a reception for a couple I didn’t know. I was getting nervous, but I was more excited than anything else and had all the details on what they wanted with their reception. I started setting up the tables and chairs and putting together everything that was included in their reception. It was getting closer to the time the couple would come into the Gardens for their party. It was so important for me to have everything perfect for this couple that I haven’t even met yet.

Latondra and Walter say “I Do!”

Latondra Jackson and Walter Brown had a very intimate ceremony of just the two of them on Saturday July 30th our Victorian Chapel. They both had such big and bright smiles that you could see how very much in love they are from miles away! Both Latondra and Walter have been married before, and Latondra was explaining to me how her first wedding was very stressful and hard to plan. She was thrilled that the planning process here at Chapel of the Flowers was super easy, while still being detail-oriented. We were so grateful to be able to plan a fabulous ceremony for just the bride and groom with no stress involved, and all of us staff did everything we could to give them the wedding they deserved!

On Saturday July 30th, 2011, I had the extreme pleasure of coordinating the Renewal of Vows ceremony for Kevin and JoDee Krippene. After 10 years of marriage, this couple was still light-hearted and easygoing in their interactions with one another. They would make jokes and complemented each other in ways that only two best friends who’d been together for more than 10 years could.

Celebrating 20 Years of Marriage!

Rizaldy and Chona Villegas have been married for 20 years, and they decided to renew their vows at Chapel of the Flowers on Saturday, July 16th. They were joined by 70 of their friends and family members. Since so many loved ones attended their ceremony, their bridal party was forced to stand throughout the entire ceremony because there was no room to sit! They had a large bridal party, which included their four children. All the ladies wore hot pink dresses, and the boys had matching tuxedos on. Everyone was dressed to the nines!
