An Elegant Red and Ivory Vow Renewal Ceremony at Christian Brothers Retreat & Conference Center in Napa, California
Mayra Paniagua (35, a directors assistant) and Beto Paniagua (39, a cellar supervisor) met while Mayra was working at Christian Brothers Retreat & Conference Center in Napa, California. Beto and his brother had rented out the venue for a concert when Mayra caught his attention. Alberto left his phone number on Mayra’s car windshield and she called him by the end of the night. After they had been dating for about two years, Beto took Mayra to their favorite salsa dance club and surprised her with an engagement ring placed on her martini glass. Fast-forward ten years after their civil ceremony to the couple and their two twin daughters celebrating their anniversary with a vow renewal. They had their wedding at Christian Brothers Retreat & Conference Center, not only because it was where the couple met, but for the romantic, historical property. When thinking of love, the first color that came to mind for Mayra was red, so the color palette was red and ivory. Mayra wore the same wedding dress from the couple’s first wedding ten years prior, an ivory lace wedding dress with gold accents. Beto wore a gray suit with a red tie that matched Marya’s hair flower, and their twin daughters wore ivory dresses with a mix of red and black detail. From the wedding day attire to the bridal bouquet and rose table centerpieces, the color palette created an elegant, memorable setting for the couple to enjoy with their twin daughters.
