Tommy and Monica

For months we searched for the perfect place to have our wedding.  We weren’t sure what we were looking for until we found Maravilla Gardens.  Walking around the grounds Tommy and I could tell this was the place.  We felt so much love and positive energy all around us.

There were so many special parts of the day that I know could only have happened at Maravilla Gardens. Our photographer, Michael Segal, created a “first look” photo for us prior to our ceremony at the barn.  When I saw Tommy my heart filled with happiness.  I will never forget our embrace and kiss.  We continued to take more photographs with the haystacks in front of the beautiful, rustic barn.  The setting had so much character.  It was exactly what we wanted.  The most memorable part of the day was being able to have our “Furry Attendant”, Pony Boy, walk down the aisle during our ceremony.

We were very pleased with Command Performance.  We wanted to incorporate both of our cultures in our wedding, Cuban and Chinese.  From the beginning Robert worked with us to provide us with a fantastic Cuban menu and what we needed for our Chinese Tea Ceremony, which was held during our reception.  Having worked in the restaurant business for many years, I immediately noticed the service was impeccable.

At the end of the night we said good bye to our guests in style with the traditional Grand Farewell with brightly-lit sparklers.  Our guests really enjoyed themselves and continue to tell us this was the best wedding they have ever been to.  We are thankful for Maravilla Gardens for all their help in creating the wedding of our dreams.
