Jessica & Ollie's Damask Wedding

I would like to start by saying that after this wedding I think I have caught the damask bug. I'm going to try very hard to not let this spiral in to something that may require some form of therapy. :)

Anyway, on to more important matters....on Saturday, May 23, Jessica and Ollie were married. Even with the rain it was a beautiful night. During the process I had dealt soley with Jessica. Seeing them together, for a minute on their wedding day made me totally understand why they were marrying eachother. Their love truly radiates and it's hard not to feel it when your around them. I always love to look at how the groom looks at the bride when she's not really paying attention and you can really tell how absolutely smitten and in love Ollie is with Jessica.

The ceremony took place at St. Hugh Catholic Church in Coconut Grove and the reception followed at The Rusty Pelican in Key Biscayne.

I am a total sucker for details. I love it when a bride has all those little things that they have DIY'ed and little treasures that match their theme that they have made and gathered to personalize their wedding day. Jessica was great at this!

Damask was the theme and it did not disappoint.
At the ceremony, damask lined baskets held the themed programs and tissues. Every other pew was accented with a damask bow.
All the tables had damask runners that Jessica had made using a fabric she loved. The remaining fabric was given to AB Covers who made bands to go around the teal dupioni napkins. The table numbers were DIY cylinders with a vellum wrap that had the table number and a damask chandelier accent. The menus created by me were made to match. Not to mention she found all of these great damask candle holders that we used in several places. Loved it!

Gil Sosa provided all the beautiful florals and the blue lighting that gave the room a romantic glow once the sun went down was provided by Ubi's Music Productions.

Devynn of DB Images took some beautiful pictures of the evening. I've included a couple in this post. Stay tuned to her blog for some more.

I leave with you with our pictures of the night...

Jeannette & Rob's "Glowing" SoBe Wedding

I'm not sure if I'm the only one that feels this way sometimes but I can almost always immediately tell from the first email whether or not I'm going to "click" with a bride.
When Jeannette first emailed me I laughed so much I was almost in tears. I knew that this planning process with her would be lots of fun and it really was.
Jeannette and Rob are an out-of-town couple from NY so needless to say Jeannette and I exchanged countless emails and lots of laughs.

Even with a little rain before the ceremony the night was perfect. The weather held up and the couple truly enjoyed their night, which is really what it's all about.

The ceremony took place at the Ancient Spanish Monastery in North Miami Beach. Gil Sosa decorated the entrance to the Cloisters and the Prayer Well area with Orchids, Hydrangea and Italian Ruscus. You really do not need to do much o the area since it's already so lovely but the floral really helped add to the beautiful garden setting.

After the ceremony were treated to a change of scenery. A chartered bus took all the guests from the ceremony to the reception site. The National Hotel on South Beach.
I love working at this venue, it's definitely in my Top 5 locations.
When guest arrived at the hotel they were welcome by the couples signature drink a Passion Fruit Mojito. Jeannette and Rob concocted this drink out of their kitchen a couple f weeks before the wedding. Many taste test were required in order to ensure that it would be something the guest would enjoy ;) Someone sign me up for that job next time!
After the cocktail hour guests moved over to the Aqua Pool for dinner and dancing.

The colors for the reception were Hot Pink and Burnt Orange. The tables were dressed in Burnt Orange Linens & Mahogany Chiavari Chairs with a white satin cushion provided by Hitched Event Rentals.
The centerpieces where tall white vases topped with white hydrangea, orange Mokara orchids and purple dendrobium orchids. LED lights were placed inside the vases and once it was dark out the vases lit up. The guests loved it.
The custom table numbers and menus were created by me.
Each chair had a box with a Cuban "cafesito" cup & saucer filled with chocolate espresso beans.
Dance South Florida provided the white acrylic dance floor that was placed under the canopy and Ubi's Music Productions provided a club lighting package that truly added to the SoBe experience.
Toward the end of dinner Alexis and I went up to the Honeymoon Suite and decorated it with flowers, candles and lots of goodies from the dessert buffet that was put out after dinner. I did not get any pictures of this but it looked beautiful. Hope you guys enjoyed it!
Honeymoon Suite decoration is an "a la carte" service we offer and it definitely provides that romantic and soothing atmosphere to come back to after the wedding day.

Jeannette & Rob, it was an absolute pleasure working with you on putting together your wedding day. Jeannette, it's been so much fun corresponding with you over the last 11 months. We'll definitely keep in touch! :)
I hope that the two of you had a fabulous Honeymoon and continue to have a fabulous life together!

Christina & Carlos' Beautiful Pink & Silver Wedding....

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of coordinating the wedding of one of my long time brides Christina.
Christina had booked me over a year ago and already had her venue booked and several of her vendors. She was not wasting any time!

All of her planning finally came together on April 25th. The ceremony took place at the always beautiful Plymouth Congregational Church with the reception following at the Reception Palace. Christina has a few worries about her venue as the date approached but come wedding date everything was perfect.

Christina & Carlos wanted a very crisp clean look for their tables and wanted the flowers and lighting to do all the talking!
The tables were dressed in white linens with white chiavari chairs and white cushions. Each place setting had a silver acrylic charger white napkin and the custom menu. Favors were these adorable shot glasses with the couples monogram. If that didn't show you these two love to party, the tables were named after drinks they both love.

Party Sparks provided the awesome LED lights that flooded the room in a Hot Pink/Lavender glow.

Vivian Colls designed the beautiful flowers arrangements that adorned each table.

The bride and groom and all their guests had an awesome time. So much so that after the wedding they went to party some more!

Christina & Carlos, all I kept hearing all night from the vendors was how great the 2of you are and it's the truth. I always say I'm so lucky to be blessed with such great couple and the two of you were no exception.
I hope that you had an amazing time in Costa Rica and that you continue to have an amazing life together!
Congrats Mr. & Mrs.!
