By Lisa; Sarah Sandoval and Arthur Chambers welcomed family and friends to their "Best Day Ever!" and Millie's Event Designs was on site as they're wedding coordinator at The Montgomery Event Center in Excelsior Springs, MO.
On October 18th, Sarah Ann Sandoval and Arthur Allen Chambers exchanged their vows in an intimate Spanish setting, surrounded by family and close friends. Sarah and Arthur had chosen as a couple to perform a "Love Letter & Wine Box" wedding ceremony. The box contains a bottle of wine and a love letter from each to the other. The letter described the good qualities they find in one another, the reasons they fell in love and their reasons for choosing to marry. The letters are sealed in individual envelops and they have not seen what the other has written. They have created their own very "romantic" time capsule to be opened only if they need to remind each other of their love and reasons for marriage. Tradition holds, if the box has not been open before the 5th wedding anniversary, it is to be opened at that time in celebration of five strong years together!
As the newly married couple left the setting to take some post ceremony pictures, the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour as the caterers began setting up for the delectable buffet. Once the sun had set the guests were asked to form a canopy line lit with sparklers welcoming to the reception Mr. & Mrs. Arthur Chambers.
The newlyweds & wedding party began the buffet line as their guests followed suit. Next was the tradition of cutting the three layer cake (designed by cake artist Sherrie Ortiz; sherriescakemagic.com). Afterwards each parent gave a heartfelt memorable toast the bride & groom "Vaya con Dios" or God be with you!
Mr. & Mrs. Arthur Chambers danced their first dance as man & wife. Then Arthur danced with his mother & Sarah with her father. As the traditions came to a close the DJ, James Gaona invited the guests to join the couple onto the dance floor.
The celebration lasted into the night until last guest closed the door and bid Buenas Noches (good night) to Sarah & Arthur.
