In a sea of warm, neutral tones, Chelsia and Miguel celebrated their union in a modern-romance wedding. From being each other’s first love to growing into adulthood together, their wedding at The Castle at Wildwood Gardens was a fairytale.
Chelsia and Miguel first met at 15 and soon became best friends. After dating for six years, they finally decided to tie the knot. Chelsia and Miguel come from diverse cultural backgrounds; Chelsia is Hmong, and her parents hail from Laos, while Miguel is Hispanic, and his parents immigrated from Mexico. For their wedding, they celebrated their differences while also highlighting their commonalities.
Choosing The Castle at Wildwood Gardens as their wedding venue was a serendipitous discovery. Introduced by their wedding planner, the couple instantly loved the venue’s beauty and old-style charm. Against the stunning backdrop of the castle garden, Chelsia and Miguel exchanged their wedding vows in an outdoor ceremony full of dusty rose flowers.
Following the ceremony, the couple celebrated with a reception featuring a fusion of Southeast Asian and Mexican cuisine. Both members of their church’s worship band, the couple brought that passion to their reception and serenaded each other under candlelight. Such a reception was complete with laughter, tears, surprises and the warm presence of family and friends.
As Chelsia and Miguel embarked on their journey as a married couple, they shared their love story with their guests and showed them how beautifully it has flourished. Their wedding reminds us that with care, love can create a fairytale that lasts a lifetime.
