One evening in July, more than 100 family and friends came together at the Doubletree Irvine Spectrum to celebrate a very special milestone. And this group knows how to throw a FABULOUS anniversary party! Carlos and Leticia celebrated 70 years of marriage surrounded by those most important to them, treated to some very touching surprises. Two close friends offered toasts and blessings to the couple, they were serenaded by a special song and a poem written just for their special day, a slideshow of some of the beautiful moments in their lives, all capped off by an amazing Columbian orchestra that played the night away.
Special touches by Gem Sweets were everywhere, from an incredible dessert table, to the gorgeous centerpieces. The Gatsby theme was just perfect for the evening! During cocktail hour, guests were treated to a photo booth where they could ham it up with some cute props and a beautiful black petal drop backdrop. To celebrate the happy couple, guests were asked to write handwritten notes of congratulations and love, and hang them on a special tree which was presented to Carlos and Leticia.
It was such a treat to witness the love and the fun in the ballroom that night. Carlos and Leticia still act like newlyweds after 70 years of marriage, and they are just the sweetest couple. You can tell that they are extremely well loved and appreciated by their family and friends and have made an impact on many lives. I left that night inspired, exhausted, and with a huge smile on my face. Thank you Audrey, Carlos and Leticia, for allowing me to photograph your special evening and provide you with new memories to enjoy for many years to come!
