Mari and Pete were originally from Miami, till business took them to Denver. When Pete proposed they decided South Beach would be the spot for their destination wedding. So with a few trips and lots and los of emails their Fabulous day went perfectly.
They chose The National hotel in South Beach as their venue. I'd like to add on a personal note that I absolutely love this hotel. The outside space is perfect for November wedding the breeze off the beach is amazing. I'd also like to acknowledge that Jamie and the staff there are awesome and always accommodating. Let's not even get started on the food. YUM!
November 9th was a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding. The bride looking absolutely stunning in her Vera Wang gown.
After saying their I Do's in the sand under a beautiful chuppah the couple and their guests headed over to the hotel which was right behind the beach.
The cocktail hour took place at the terrace right off the lobby.
After some drinks and laughs guests were directed toward "Zee Pool" area where the reception would take place.
The Mr. & Mrs. waiting for their introduction!
The square tables were dressing in a brown peau de soie linen, ivory napkin, mahogany chiavari chair with a pistachio colored cushion. The simple and beautiful floral arrangements created by Petunia Flowers were multiple vases filled with tulips, orchids, and hydrangea. Each place setting was accent with a mini green orchid. The sweet heart table was draped and skirted with the same brown peau de soie linen and had a brown overlay embroidered with green swirls and leaves.
The cake was a yummy 3 tiered confection with chocolate bands around each tier and orchids made of sugar for accent. The table was dress in an ivory peau de soie linen with a green leaf overlay.
Here are a couple of more pictures
