What are your wedding colors and/or themes?
We didn’t have specific colors but I absolutely love cream flowers. We decided to do navy bridesmaid dresses because I thought it was timeless. That became the inspiration for florals in a way. Also I love orchids and we wanted to play up the modern Miami vibe of the sands entryway so we used those cool floating items on the escort card table.
What is your inspiration when planning your wedding?
Fun music and cool food items. We were very into the idea of a sangaria bar since we are obsessed with tapas. Also I wanted it to be somewhat traditional.
Did you incorporate any fun themes/motifs or design elements?
We stayed very traditional and formal with most design elements but wanted to play up fun food items like bakery to go. We also wanted that lounge area in ballroom which I thought was cool
Did you include any special traditions, old or new?
Both of us got married in rings which were passed down to us, we stood under my dad’s tallace in the chuppah. We also wrote our own vows and that was very important to us.
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Best day of our lives. We had so much fun and danced the night away!
The video team did a phenomenal job knocking everything out of the park, but now it’s time for the photo team to share!
Thank you so much for allowing us to capture your gorgeous wedding, and congratulations from all of us here at the studio!!
