Tender. Elegant. Soft.
As we reflect on the day of Ernesto and Donnalyn’s wedding, we can’t help but see these themes strung throughout both their relationship and their special day. From the time this Evermoore couple met five years earlier and became high school sweethearts, it was clear that they shared a gentle love, and what a joy it was to be a part of their beautiful memories on May 20th!
Both working as nurses, Ernesto and Donnalyn show the essence of compassion and care for other people. “There’s three really important things in this life” — Ernesto reminded wedding guests — “friends, family, and your significant other.” And it’s pretty clear he means it. The traditional wedding they shared demonstrated their deep love and commitment to each other, yet they also made it a priority to involve the ones they loved in special ways.
When we asked Donnalyn about her choice of colors, she replied they were “the Evermoore colors” — a sophisticated white and dreamy blue. The gorgeous lace of her David’s Bridal gown was accented by a sparkly sash, perfectly complementing the Kay Jewelers ring her left finger would soon wear. Donnalyn’s hair, by Gema Gonzalez, and her makeup, by Yaelh, added to the elegancy of the day. Bridesmaids in that spring-blue, bouquets from Leslie’s Custom Floral, and the ladies were set! On the guys’s end, both the Men’s Wearhouse suits and the matching blue ties made for a handsome groom and groomsmen.
It must be hard for a father to give away his daughter to another man. From the sweet First Look Donnalyn and her father shared, to a dance together later that evening and all the moments in between, her sweetness and compassion again debuted in her words, facial expressions, and movements. Beautifully balanced with Ernesto’s positivity and encouraging impact on those around him, this couple’s loyalty for each other flows deeply.
The wedding ceremony took place at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church with heartfelt vows and the pronouncement that Ernesto and Donnalyn were now husband and wife! Next, the bridal party and guests headed over to El Tango Reception Hall for dancing with AllSound Music Entertainment. Between the dinner and yummy treats of NV Catering and Cakes by Karen, guests were not disappointed. And wow, that cake! Four layers, sparkled bands, and every bit as sophisticated as the wedding.
