From the bride: From the beginning of our planning journey, we both knew we wanted to make our families and their internationality the center of our day. We had commissioned Nicholas’s 94­ year ­old granddad, a talented and tender­hearted artist living on Vancouver Island, to create a monogram that represented this internationality coming together. Halfway through our planning he fell ill and we put everything on hold to visit him during his final days. On the last day of our visit, he gifted us with the lettering of the monogram he had finished. He passed away two weeks later, but his artistic legacy continued through Nicholas’ grandmother who finished the monogram. She blended three parts in the design ­ the maple leaf, representing Nicholas’ Canadian homeland, the guaria morada which is the national flower of Costa Rica ­ Natalia’s homeland, and lastly, vineyard leaves and tendrils, representing California ­the state we call home. This monogram became the central point in our decor, including the invitations, ceremony programs, dinner menus, seating chart, etc.
