Veronica & Jose, Hilton Waterfront Resort



When your bride tells you she wants a full transformation of her ballroom, you give her exactly that! When I first met with Veronica and Jose I learned that they actually have been married for almost thirty years and had finally decided to have the wedding they’ve always wanted. This made the planning process even more special as I was able to plan with Veronica and her daughters Sheila and Paola who were her bridesmaids; so sweet! At our first meeting I knew Veronica wanted a floral haven inside the already gorgeous Coastal Ballroom at the Hilton Waterfront Resort and that’s precisely what we achieved. Bringing on Three Petals brought Veronica and Jose’s vision to life with tall luscious centerpieces, a gorgeous cascading sweetheart table florals and backdrop, and last but certainly not least, not one, not two, but all SIX chandeliers had hanging florals and what a statement it was! Go big or go home! Veronica expressed that she wanted the ballroom to be glamorous and romantic and part of the transformation was fully draping the entire ballroom along with bringing in white carpet and up-lights throughout the ballroom to give those soft romantic elements. Everyone that walked in the room that evening was blown away at how gorgeous everything was and we are SO thankful for all of the vendors that made this vision come to life!
