Colorful Rooftop Wedding With Modern Geometric Designs

Colorful Rooftop Wedding With Geometric Modern Designs | Christian + Reinna Cruz 37

Whether you’re in the planning stages or have already celebrated your nuptials, most couples can likely list off the number of unexpected stresses that arise before the big day. But imagine this – you show up for flag football practice (please sign me up!) and break your ankle two weeks before your wedding. Yikes!

Today’s real bride took it in stride and is absolutely beaming on her crutches and even donning an artfully decorated cast. And talk about silver lining, all those little last minute errands to the bank, craft stores, coffee shops, she gladly got to pass them off for her recovery!

Aside from Anklegate 2016, the wedding features so many other unique details like colorful geometric wooden sculptures, wild and bold flowers, and fruit filled coconut bowls for dessert.  Catch all the action in their super fun film at the end.

Our Wedding Story

Whenever I think about my wedding, my heart instantly yearns to be brought back to that perfect day in December. It was a perfect blur of a day filled with all the things I love most: family, friends, bohemian rugs, funky shapes, disco balls, neon colors, pinatas, lots of dancing, ice cream, and my now husband.

The Style

Being a wedding coordinator, I’ve been to my fair share of weddings. Some I took inspiration from some and I learned what I wouldn’t want to do. So from the very beginning, I knew that I wanted to a clean white space be the foundational canvas for our neon brush-stroked designs.

Our style can be described as bright, simple, and modern, with a hint of bohemian and plenty of pops of silliness. Our wedding colors were a dark blue-green, neon orange, ivory and cream, accented with metallics.

For a while we were toying with the idea of getting married outdoors, but since that didn’t work out, we wanted our tables to be filled with a mix of tropical leaves that juxtaposed nicely with complementary pops of neon orange from our menus as well as from the table runners. Instead of traditional flowers, we opted with King Protea desert blooms which tied it all up quite cohesively.

Anklegate 2016

Three-weeks before the wedding, I broke my ankle playing flag football. I’ve been in an all girls league with my church for over 5 years, so I thought nothing of it when I went to practice that fateful morning. The break was bad enough that I had surgery a week later, which was two weeks before the wedding. The month leading up to the wedding was filled with so many complicated emotions and anxiety, but also a lot of peace.

Little did I know, the thoughtless mistake of going to football practice would turn into one of the biggest blessings. There were still so many small, last minute details to be handled: picking up bathroom amenity basket contents, picking up Blue Bottle Coffee, going to the bank for last minute cash, sorting out rehearsal details, etc. And because I broke my ankle, I couldn’t physically do anything.

My wedding party went into full action mode and extended not only their time but their shoulders to lean on, literally. Without them, we could have never survived #anklegate2016! As a result of #anklegate2016, my bridal party decided to gift me with fun patches to flair out my cast with!

The Food

One of the things that I still hear about from our wedding, is how amazing the food was! The Lime Truck was an immaculate fusion of Asian flavors in New American cuisine, which matched the merging of our two families perfectly.

We opted out of a traditional cake cutting and has an ice cream scooping from Neveux Artisan Creamery, as well as an acai bowl from Amazebowls as our late night snack.

Special Moments

One of my favorite moments from the wedding day was receiving my wedding gift from Jason. It was wrapped in bright green Spiderman wrapping paper – the very same wrapping paper I gave him back in 2009.
