Primavera Regency Wedding Photos: Francesca and Alex
The Primavera Regency played host to Francesca & Alex’s wedding memories. Working with Francesca and Alex was so much fun and I enjoyed getting to know them as a couple! Francesca looked stunning in her Oleg Cassini wedding gown. She did not feel any nerves leading up to her wedding day because she always knew Alex was the one. Her most special moment of the day was seeing Alex’s reaction to her walking towards him at the Alter. For their theme, they tried to join their cultures together and stayed neutral with their black, pink and white/invory color choices.

How did you choose your wedding day look?
Francesca’s goal was bright and simple yet elegant. The makeup artist used purple tones to brighten up the green in my eyes, we went with an updo to avoid me being uncomfortable throughout the day. Alex was easy, he didn’t require much. He stuck with his glossy Calvin Klein shoes and a simple black Movado watch to match his black Calvin Klein tuxedo.
Tell us about your proposal?
Alex proposed to me the day before our 8 year anniversary. We went to dinner at Rebecca’s in Edgewater for Cuban food. We were running late, so when I called they kept saying the reservation was for four but it was only us two…after a malfunction in the kitchen we waited over an hour for dinner. Alex was texting consistently throughout the night and after I finally complained, I went to the bathroom. When I come out his best friend(best man) and my old friend were there and I was so confused. Obviously, they were part of the plan and had come with the flowers and ring. It all worked out in the end!
How did you decorate your space, was any part DIY?
Some of the decorations came from the bridal shower party(initials behind sweetheart table). The garland on the sweetheart table was from Target. The backdrop was a DIY project, Alex made the structure and I decorated it with fabric and flowers. The banner of “Mr & Mrs. Khidre” was a customized banner from Walmart.
What were your flowers like in your wedding?
We did white, plush pink and hot pink roses with greeny leaves. The centerpieces were hydrangeas with twigs. They were simple which is what I wanted.
Did you personalize your day in any way and what were some of your favorite parts of your wedding?
Besides the belly dancer, Liz Layla, and surprise birthday cake for Alex, we did not have anything else. My favorite part was definitely the whole thing but the ceremony and memory video were two of my favorite. I loved the memory table of all our family members who have passed.
Do you have wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share?
Relax and go with the flow, it all works out in the end.
