A Celebration of Love | Enrika + Marlon

Love has a way of weaving its magic into the most beautiful moments of our lives. And when Enrika and Marlon embarked on their journey together, they envisioned a wedding that would reflect their deep connection and joyous spirits. Their dream came to life in the heart of Alvin, TX when they exchanged vows in a whimsical garden setting, surrounded by their closest family and friends. Join us as we relive the enchanting moments of Enrika and Marlon's real-life wedding, a celebration of love that will inspire and warm your heart.

The Setting

Nestled amidst lush greenery and blooming flowers, the garden venue, Morgan Falls, provided the perfect backdrop for Enrika and Marlon's love-filled union. The vibrant colors and natural beauty of the surroundings added an ethereal touch to the atmosphere, creating a magical ambiance that left guests in awe. The gentle breeze rustled through the trees, as if nature itself rejoiced in the union of two souls. The pond's fountain added to the event's grace. The perfection location for this lovely couple.


The Execution

Enrika and Marlon hired our team, Next Chapter Weddings, for Coordination Only, meaning they did all the planning themselves and had us come in towards the end to execute their plans for their very special day. We had several meetings to ensure we were on the same page. The night prior to their wedding, we led a rehearsal at the venue. There were a few last minute changes that we addressed, but by the end of rehearsal everyone was excited for the next day!

The Ceremony

As the soft strains of a melodious tune filled the air, Enrika made her grand entrance, a vision in her flowing white gown. The guests' eyes shimmered with tears of joy as they witnessed the couple's heartfelt vows, spoken with unwavering love and devotion. The intimate ceremony was officiated by Enrika's father, adding a personal touch that further deepened the emotional connection.


The Décor

The couple's vision of a whimsical, boho garden wedding was flawlessly brought to life through the carefully curated décor. A delicate arch adorned with cascading flowers and Pampas grass framed the altar, creating a picturesque focal point. Tables adorned with Pampas grass centerpieces and twinkling fairy lights welcomed guests to an enchanted world. All of this hardwork was executed by the Bride's family- a task that is not usually recommending as it can be quite tiring and overwhelming.
