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.
