Who says you can’t cut the cake and have the first dance before the ceremony? Or that the couple can’t see each other before the wedding? With the extension of ECQ and implementation of a strict 6PM curfew, Brands and Grass chose to go against traditional wedding norms for their tropical wedding. First, the bride and groom prepped together in one venue and had the sweetest first look! Following this, they had the reception program, which included the first dance, speeches, cutting the cake, toasts, and performances. Finally, they travelled to the church and got married! All the guests then received packed meals before heading home in time for curfew.
Despite the challenges that safety protocols posed, Brands and Grass managed to have a laid-back and fun wedding that encapsulated their love for adventures, family, and God. They even fulfilled their dream of getting married at the church where their love story began! Though they didn’t do their wedding the normal way, they did it their own way—and made the most out of it too! This set by Team Benitez Photo captures the charm of this unconventional wedding.
