Venue- The Epicurean Hotel
Andrea and Ben's enchanting wedding at the Epicurean Hotel in Tampa was a beautiful celebration of their love that began as teenagers in Fiji and continued to flourish in Australia. The venue was elegantly decorated with rattan chandeliers, soft hues, and an abundance of lush greenery, setting the stage for a heartwarming and unforgettable event.
The ceremony combined Fijian and Australian traditions. Andrea and Ben participated in a Fijian rug ceremony, standing on a handwoven 'Masi' rug, which symbolized their unity and the warmth of their love. Following this, they signed their Australian wedding certificate in front of their loved ones, officially becoming husband and wife.
One of the most touching moments of the evening was the couple's choreographed first dance. Despite the fact that Ben is deaf and couldn't hear the music, their love and determination shone through as they moved gracefully across the dance floor. The dance showcased their strong connection, leaving guests deeply moved and inspired by the couple's unwavering commitment to one another.
The joyous reception was an exquisite affair filled with laughter, dancing, and heartfelt toasts. The lively atmosphere, coupled with the happy couple's infectious smiles, made for an evening that everyone in attendance will cherish for years to come.
Andrea and Ben's wedding at the Epicurean Hotel was a testament to the power of love that transcends cultural boundaries and personal challenges. As they embark on their journey as husband and wife, the memories of their vibrant celebration will undoubtedly remain a cherished part of their love story.
