What a party! If you aren’t having an Hora Loca at your wedding, you should seriously rethink it! Once the props came out, the dance floor went wild! Add to that the fact that Yaz and Zoe are two of the most fun-loving people I’ve met, and it makes for an unforgettable day!
I asked Yaz and Zoe how they met and got engaged, and they said: We met at a bar full of sweaty gay men. Zoe eyeballed Yaz dancing with a group of friends and shimmied up for a dance… fireworks happened and the rest is history… We woke up one Saturday morning in the summer, all sleepy and with horrible bad breath and I (Yaz) asked her. She said yes.
When I asked them why they chose a destination wedding, they said: 50% pragmatism: our families are in too many places and it was easier to do it somewhere central. And 50% romanticism on Yaz’s part. Her favourite state of being is wearing a bathing suit near the ocean.
Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding:
I asked Yaz and Zoe to tell me a bit about their wedding planning process, and they said: We really didn’t go about our wedding planning in a typical fashion. A lot of our inspiration came from unexpected places. For example, one night on the way home from work we decided to have an impromptu dinner date. We stumbled upon a small fancy French restaurant that we had never seen or heard of before. The menus were simple, elegant, and adorably clipped onto pieces of cardboard. We loved it and copied that style for our menus.
When I asked them about their favorite part of the day, they said: Snuggling up in bed half the day while Yaz was sick and Zoe had no voice. The speeches from our officiants. The speeches from our families. Our first dance. The mad ninja skills of the photog (which really everyone still talks about).
I guarantee that people will be talking about your wedding for so many years to come– what an unbelievable day, from start to finish!! :)
