A Wine-Inspired Wedding at Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Sarah Aguirre (27 and an IT professional) and Mark Drucker's (28 and an IT salesman) love of wine and champagne inspired their wedding day colors and tabletop decor. Using merlot dresses for the bridesmaids and recycled wine bottles as vases, the couple shared their favorite drinks with their guests in creative ways. Under a white tent accented with chandeliers, the couple wed with a mix of traditional vows and a sand-pouring ceremony, before moving inside to the hotel's grand ballroom with a wine-fueled reception. White hydrangeas, roses and baby's breath popped from green glass wine bottles, while guests dined on rum-flavored cake. "Don't take yourselves too seriously," Sarah says. "Embrace your inner child. And don't stop flirting with each other either...just don't!"
