Darline and Norman have one of the most unique stories we’ve had the pleasure of hearing. It all started at one of their mutual friends weddings. Darline was a bridesmaid, and Norman was a groomsman. We’ve all heard stories of bridesmaids and groomsmen falling in love, but in this case it wasn't love at first sight. In fact, they didn't get along. It wasn't until 5 or 6 years later at a second wedding that they were both in that things started to change. This time, Darline was the maid of honor, and Norman was the best man. It seemed it was meant to be that they would see each other again, and this time, they re-connected over old memories and made some incredible new ones.
The two quickly developed a friendship that would eventually become so much more. Fast forward to 2016 and Norman planned a sweet weekend in San Francisco to celebrate Darline’s birthday, and also surprise her with a rooftop proposal. How sweet! Of course she said yes!
When they were planning their wedding, they knew they wanted it to be one glamorous night, and it did not disappoint! Her stunning lace and pearl embroidered gown is absolutely breathtaking, and we can not get over her incredible train! Her bridal details add a perfect touch of simple glamor to her already stunning bridal look. Her choice of creamy florals is the sweetest compliment to her stylish look.
We love Darline and Normans’ decision to pay respect to their traditions during their ceremony, and the fact that they kept it intimate; only approximately forty guests were invited to the intimate ceremony, while an astonishing five hundred joined them to celebrate at their reception. And goodness were their reception details stunning! From the incredible floral displays and trees to the elegant table scape and cake, every detail spoke of luxury!
