This, my dear wedding lovers, is Becca and Oslo (the pup to her left). Becca met her to-be-husband, Omar, when their friend groups collided while living in Buenos Aires. Becca says their meeting wasn’t romantic, but it fit their “to be” relationship perfectly.

This is Omar, our groom in today’s nuptials, hugging Oslo as he waits to see Becca in her gown. Yes, I chose as many photos with the dog as possible to show y’all.

Their first look wasn’t planned per say, but Becca said that made the moment all the more magical. Look at Omar’s face! Too cute!

When it was wedding time, each guest arrived to Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield, VA and was given a rolled-up piece of paper filled with seeds to shower the couple after they wed. I love this raw, yet festive idea!

The ring bearers and flower girl looked as if they just stepped out of a West Elm catalogue as they cleared the way for the bride.

Each guest was directed to their table by these simple name tags. There is no need to be complicated people, this is the perfect way to do seating!

While the kids played, Becca, Omar, and their guests danced the night away.

From the Bride:

What was your favorite detail of the day? “My favorite detail was having our dog there with us. My favorite moment was dancing to Monster Mash. There’s a wedding tradition in Venezuela called “la hora loca” (crazy hour) towards the end of the night where the music changes to merengue and boxes of masks, hats, wigs and cheap party favors get passed around and everyone goes crazy. We got married the weekend before Halloween which is our favorite holiday, so we decided to blend our cultures and have a Halloween version of la hora loca. We gave everyone either masquerade or monster masks and threw around a bunch of vampire teeth and witch fingers, and danced to Thriller and Monster Mash, and surf rock, and EVERYONE DANCED. Everyone! It was so much fun.”

What advice would you give to a bride to be? “Planning a wedding is stressful and the pressure of wedding culture is overwhelming. Make it yours and do or don’t do whatever you and your partner want. Decorations are great but might be the last thing you’ll remember.. focus more on what makes a gathering fun to be a part of (basics like good music, good food, open bar). Also, I was doing yoga almost every day for a few months before the wedding and I feel like it kept me sane from the stress of planning.”
