Sailboat Cocktail Hour Bar

Since the wedding was at Cristal’s parents' home, the couple were able to truly make the day their own. They enlisted the help of their family members and friends for many of the details, including a one-of-a-kind sailboat drink cooler. Joe and Cristal’s father and brother-in-law built the cooler themselves, handcrafting a frame for a sail and attaching it to a canoe to create a makeshift sailboat. They loaded it up with ice and refreshing beverages, and added a hand-stitched sail personalized with the couple’s initials as a finishing touch.
