While meeting with Jarelis and Hank during the planning process, we were entertained by the couple's playful banter and assured that everyone in attendance would have an unforgettable and exciting evening. Boy, were we right!
These carefully chosen Wedding Day Elements worked together to highlight the chemistry between Jarelis and Hank, and to create the couple's dream wedding!

The day of celebration began with a beautiful outdoor ceremony on our very own Sultan's Pavilion. The ceremony was ornamented by directly imported Hawaiin orchids that were shipped to the hotel, and guests were entertained by a live cello player from the bride's family.
Guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the Flagler Ballroom Prefunction Space featuring Citrus Chile Spiked Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail and other butler passed hors d'ouevres.
Following cocktail hour, the newlyweds joined their guests for our Queen Sophia Plated Dinner. Jarelis and Hank shared their first dance, which was followed by a slideshow of the two for all of the guests to see. Sandor, the DJ, was a personal friend of the couple. He played fun, upbeat music and the group danced the night away! Guests went home with personalized bottles of Jone's Soda featuring none other than Jarelis and Hank on the label! Those very favors were recently featured in The Knot Magazine as "fun, functional, and totally cute" wedding favors.
On behalf of The Casa Monica, Congratulations to Jarelis and Hank! We wish you the best of luck!
