Wedding Spotlight: Catherine & Win


At Marquette Avenue Events, we wholeheartedly believe in telling the unique story of your event from the early conception stages to the final bittersweet moments of your special day. We believe in making your entire journey timelessly detailed, seamless, personalized, and most of all - FUN! We recognize it’s easy to get lost and even a bit overwhelmed in the wide stratosphere that has become events and weddings these days. This blog is a continuation of providing insight, wisdom, and inspiration into throwing you the best celebration, and helping you make memories that you’ll hold onto long after the night has ended. Come on in, grab a beverage (or pen and paper), and even bring a friend! We look forward to continuing the conversation and hearing from you very soon!

Wedding Spotlight: Catherine & Win

Janet Fernandez

We cannot believe that six short months ago we were soaking up the sun in Vieques, Puerto Rico assisting and celebrating the beautiful wedding of Catherine and Win! From the stunning scenery, wild horses and all of the touching moments we are so excited to share some of the special details of their wedding day!

Their destination wedding had an “island chic” theme, with a black, white and gold color palette, including sweeping foliage in their centerpieces, romantic candlelight and even a surprise hookah bar for their cocktail hour, a nod to the bride's Lebanese heritage. The next day, the newlyweds threw a pool party for their 50 guests, complete with tropical drinks, games, swan floaties and beach balls featuring their wedding logo!

One of the most touching moments of the day included Catherine and Win's first dance in which they paid homage to Win’s late parents by dancing to ‘Moon River,’ while a black and white photograph of his parents was projected into the ballroom, a sweet surprise for the groom. We also loved adventuring around Vieques with photographer Jesill Ayala and his wife, Christine Aquino who went above and beyond to capture the most breathtaking photos of the newlyweds, and even went so far as to herd wild horses into their photos!

We invite you in to take a peek at Catherine and Win's wedding day!
