♥Erie & Sean’s Belize Wedding ♥
August 1, 2009: Met in San Pedro, Belize
August 1, 2011: Married in San Pedro, Belize
Erie and Sean met in San Pedro at this exact location on August 1, 2009 while they were on a group trip to Belize. On August 1, 2011 they married at the same house they stayed in the first time they visited the island. Belize will always hold a very special place in both of their hearts. There’s even more excitement to their wedding story so please read on…
The Peacock Feather Wedding Theme
The peacock feathers were such a beautiful and fun theme for Erie and Sean’s island wedding. The bamboo arch accented with peacock feather and strands of white orchids looked so elegant on the beach. The colors were such a striking mix, inspired by nature. It is said that Peacock feathers symbolize marriage and some cultures believe peacock feathers represent good luck!
Peacock feathers accented just about everything. A gorgeous peacock feather tucked in the bride’s hair, peacock feathers tucked into the bride’s shoes, and there were even peacock feathers mixed throughout the bride’s gorgeous bouquet of white tropical flowers! There were even peacock features in the centerpieces and table napkings.
“The Dress Story” (You’ve got to read this!)
How beautiful is Erie’s dress? I admit, I’ve looked at this picture many times admiring the bride’s beauty and magnificent dress! Breathtaking.
Now onto the dress story…
I think people would find it crazy what I went through 2 weeks before my wedding :-)!!
Well, the place I bought the dress was going to have it steamed for me right before left; however they were scheduled to be closed on Tuesday. That meant I HAD to pick up my dress up Monday since our flight left at 9am Wednesday morning. My mother told me she would pick it up for me on Monday because I had to work and she did not. The shop called me at 4pm on Monday and asked if I still planned to pick up my dress. I was completely confused thinking that my mom should have already done this for me. I had no luck getting a hold of her so I called the shop back and asked them what time they closed, 6pm. I left my office soon after and got to the shop at 5:15 and the shop was closed! They had a sign on their door saying “sorry we missed you, we will return on Wednesday.” I went straight into panic mood and started crying. I spent the next 45 minutes calling, leaving messages, and banging on the door. Sean, got smart and found the place Facebook, he sent messages and posted comments for them to call me immediately. Sitting in front of the shop was driving me crazy so I decided to drive home since I lived only 10 minutes away. Just as I was about to pull in the driveway, they called me!! I raced back up there still in tears and got my dress. Their excuse…they simply forgot I was coming and closed the shop because the AC was not working. I had just spoken to them an hour before I got there! I didn’t care though, I just wanted my dress. I had already had my maid of honor drop out of the wedding a week before we were set to leave, I couldn’t handle anymore drama. Needless to say, I got sick the day after we got there, broke out into a rash from the cave tubing (I think), and broke my toe the day before the wedding. It was a rough couple of week, but the good news is the wedding turned out beautifully, I could walk in my shoes, and it didn’t rain!! Erie
