Jonathan chose the joyous occasion of their child's gender-reveal party to propose to his high school sweetheart Mariana. On a beautiful, rainy November evening, the couple exchanged vows on the waterfront at Waters Edge in El Lago. "Despite the rain we had during the ceremony," says the bride, "it was amazing to see our guests stay through the rain and not be fazed by it." Planning firm Events De Luxe designed a beautiful, modern ceremony site with white draping, tropical white calla lilies and green palm fronds, and white calla lily bouquets for the wedding party. The crisp, elegant decor continued in the ballroom, with glitzy linens and fresh, green-and-white centerpieces. D2R Design House created a monogrammed dance floor, a stage and candle wall for the sweetheart table, and a floral wall as backdrop for a modern goldand- white orchid cake by Susie's Cakes & Confections. The real fun began once the crowd hit the dance floor, with LED stilt-walkers, light-up party favors, a balloon-wall photo booth, and energetic live band, all captured by Civic Photos. An exhilarating water exit by boat – courtesy of the venue – marked an exciting getaway and a favorite moment for the couple.
