They found each other on a phone dating app and soon realized that, beyond the similarities of the names, they were united by a love of food (tacos came first!), then music, great coffee and conversation. When it came to the I Dos, we were happy that they chose Chatham Station and loved hosting them.
The couple said their vows on our patio in front of a lovely custom triangle adorned with coordinating flowers that matched their rustic orange, golden beige, forest green and deep burgundy color palette. The setting was gorgeous and the ceremony touching. Two chairs remained open for Erika’s late father and brother, and the tiny photo frames in Erika’s bouquet were also tributes to these lost loved ones.
Details & Reception
Erika and Eric planned a bohemian wedding with modern touches and wanted to make sure that there was plenty of great music, great food and a sense of intention. Elements were customized including decor, cocktails, the entire menu, each song, all of it. Erika has roots in the Philippines and Eric’s are in Colombia, so the couple included veil, cord, coins, and a unity candle lighting during the ceremony, which were both Filipino & Colombian traditional elements. They also included “La Hora Loca,” which originated in Latin America, as part of their reception. “La Hora Loca” means “crazy hour” because it keeps the party fun, energized, and gives guests time to dance and party through the reception. They provided hats, flower crowns, flashing sunglasses, inflated balloons, and glow sticks for this festivity.
Eric: “The crazy hour was such a wonderful time as everyone filled the dance floor with DJ Q Focus on the turntables hyping the reception crowd.” It was indeed a party. The bride changed her gown and the couple danced the night away.
A sparkler send-off at Chatham Station always looks amazing! Congratulations to these two wonderful people!
The newlyweds and Chatham Station are happy to share the vendor list with you.
