Every dress has a story, and Marissa’s is no different, she says it was nothing like she imagined but we think the final choice couldn’t be any more perfect for her. Lazaro designed the dress and Marissa had her whole entourage there to help her pick the just right one.
“Lace” was the theme of the wedding and the “Noir” bridesmaid’s dresses, by Lozaro, were the perfect compliment to her classy, elegant and fun wedding.
The Ritz Carlton Resort decor team designed the flowers for the event and “they really brought my romantic/elegant vision alive with awesome high and low centerpieces and a breath-taking fountain arrangement in Center Court for the Cocktail Hour,” as Marissa said. The amazing cake was also designed by The Ritz Carlton Resort pastry chef and harmonized perfectly with the couple’s lace theme.Marissa looked stunning on her special day thanks to a family friend who did her makeup and Avant Garde Salon, who styled her hair.
Guests had their own concert at Marissa and Derek’s special day with the help of “The Headliners” band, who Marissa said were the “best band EVER. They kept the party rockin’ until the very last song. LOVED them!”
The power couple are currently on their honeymoon in Thailand!! Their first stop is Bangkok and they are loving every minute of it, being treated like royalty is something they say they can easily get used to!
When asked about her special day, she had this to say, “After a year of planning, I doubted every last decision (hair, flowers, colors, etc)…but there was one thing that I never once doubted, to marry Derek. That I was sure of! My wedding day exceeded my expectations in every way possible. Despite the forecast, the weather was absolutely perfect! I was surrounded by 300+ family and friends and couldn’t have asked for anything more! The Ritz really went above and beyond in making sure everything was just perfect. A dream.come true :) It feels good to be a Mrs!”
Congratulations to Marissa and Derek, we are so incredibly happy for you two, and we are sending nothing but best wishes and thoughts for you in your future together!
