Christina & Ben 4.10.10

Christina & Ben came down to Miami (where Christina is originally from) from New York to get married on South Beach. SoBe seems to be a THE place all my NY brides want to get married and why not?! There are lots of amazing hotels and venues to choose from and being in the heart of all the action gives all the guests lots to do the rest of the weekend.

The ceremony & reception both took place at the South Beach Marriot. I love this venue for smaller events because it's accommodations are perfect.
The ceremony took place on the terrace. The aisle was lined with giant orange tissue pomanders and at the "altar" 2 beautiful arrangements in the wedding colors of hot pink and burnt orange. The ocean provided the perfect backdrop. After the cocktail hour which also took place on the terrace guests moved in to the ballroom for the reception. The tables were dressed in dark pink linens, silver chargers, Silver chiavari chairs & white satin cushions. The centerpieces were gorgeous arrangements of hot pink, orange and fuchsia colors roses, white hydrangea, purple & orange orchids and curly willow branches. Fuchsia colors up lighting was placed around the room and a pin spot was used to illuminate each centerpiece as well as the cake.
The cake was set atop glass cubes and flowers and was lit from underneath with acolytes. It was one of my favorite cake setups thus far and I was really excited to do all florals on the cake and for the base.
The ballroom looked beautiful and really gave off that South Beach feel.

Jodie & Casey 3.13.10

Jodie & Casey were married on March 13, 2010 at the Addison in Boca Raton. I was looking forward to finally working at this venue since I had never been there and it did not disappoint. It's a historic building with lots of character and we really loved it there. The ceremony took place in the courtyard under the Banyan trees.
Afterwards, guests were escorted to the fountain area for cocktails.
The weather was perfect for the outdoor activities.

After cocktails, the party was moved in to the ballroom for the reception. The tables were dressed in gun metal gray crinkled linens, black chiavari chairs and silver beaded glass chargers. All the flowers were different shades of pink.
One of my favorite elements was an overlay that was created with old family pictures. Guests made their way to the cake table to look at the pictures all night.

Jodie & Casey congrats on your marriage! and on the upcoming arrival of your little boy!

Below are some amazing pictures from Gregory Paul Photography and the higlight reel created by Blueshore Video Productions. Enjoy!

Tanya & Javi 2.13.10

Tanya and Javi were married on Saturday February 13, 2010 at The Palms Hotel in Miami Beach. The hotels garden and gazebo served as the location for the ceremony and the reception immediately followed on the veranda. The weather was great that night and what better way to enjoy one of our few "winter" days that with a wedding!

The party proved to be lots of fun! The dance area was packed all night and on the night before Valentine's Day (as cheesy as this may sound) love filled the air!

The party did not end there after the reception the crowd headed out to an after party at the re-vamp Fountain Bleu Hotel.

Katie & Gene 1.16.10

Katie and Gene are an amazing Navy couple I had the pleasure of working with last year. They met overseas, while serving our country and fell in love :)

At the time they hired me they were both based in Italy and needed someone to take the reigns to pull together the remaining details of their January 2010 event. I was honored to be a part of it.

Katie loves the color blue and was happy to have it everywhere, along with Bom Blue Orchid she fell in love with online that she new she had to have. So her wish was my command. Everything was done in different shades of blue. I created invitations, menus, programs, table numbers and mini seating charts for this event as well. All of the elements included this favorite color.

The end result was a lovely event for about 60 guests with a ceremony @ St. Hugh and reception at the Rusty Pelican.
Best moment of the night for me? Seeing my one seemingly conservative Navy JAG Lawyer breaking it down with her new husband on the dance floor :) They had an amazing time and that truly makes all the hard work worth it!

Here are some pictures I took of the evening as well as some professional pictures by Mayfly Photography.
