Where to begin… I hope the photographs do most of the talking, but I will fill in you in on some behind the scenes information. Brooke and Eugene started their day getting ready at the Ritz Carlton in Coconut Grove. The location was close to the reception that took place at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. It also made for a beautiful backdrop for all the getting ready images. As we walked into Brooke’s room, we were happy to see a lot of family and friends in her suite. There was champagne flowing, music filling the air, and lots of laughter. Brooke was calm and collected, which was expected (she is the most relaxed and chill bride ever). One of my favorite moments was when Brooke took the time to put makeup on the flower girl… too cute! In the groom’s room, we walked in on Eugene getting a fresh shave by his personal barber. The mood was relaxed and fun. I would say Eugene would agree that a highlight that happened in his getting ready was his present from Brooke. Let’s just say Eugene was blushing, while flipping through Brooke’s boudoir photo album. It was a classic reaction that was funny to witness. Luckily the wedding coordinator, Jennifer Johnson, allotted a large amount of time for us to take photographs of this gorgeous couple. We were lucky enough to have a 15 minute photo shoot at Vizcaya with the bride. The couple agreed to seeing each other before the ceremony, a tradition very common in Jewish religion. We call this a “First Look,” and we had the best backdrop to capture the moment. A full hour was put aside for this and for portraits, needless to say we were like kids in a candy store. Brooke and Eugene are gorgeous, and they are amazing in front of the camera. It was so fun watching and photographing the moments that were exchanged between these two love birds. Eugene has a way of making Brooke feel like a princess. He was so sweet and genuine with her. It was an amazing thing to watch. We had so many amazing portraits, and it was so difficult to narrow down the number for the blog. This is a problem that makes us so happy. The romantic feel transitioned into the ceremony, where the decor lighting was warm and inviting. The pink cherry blossom huppa made the ceremony look like something out of a fairy tale. The decor at the reception was no different. Lighting is so important at an event. It can transform a space, giving it depth and feeling; this wedding was a perfect example of amazing lighting. The dinner area was displayed between a beautiful ocean front and Vizcaya’s main house. The main house was lit with colorful lighting patterns and the stage for the band was built on top of the water… it was just gorgeous! Dinner started with a “smoking” salad that was housed inside a glass encasing. The waiters brought each guest an individual salad and opened the glass encasing to allow the smoke to float out and into the air. Definitely a presentation to remember, and something that is best described in photographs, LOL (scroll down). So many surprises happened throughout the night. The first dance ended with an 8 minute firework presentation… Can you imagine fireworks as you’re sharing your first dance with your Mr. or Mrs.?! There were also two surprise guests that were completely unexpected and may need some explaining. During the cocktail hour, Eugene played a little joke on Brooke (something that Brooke says happens quite often). This time, the joke was in front of 170 family and friends. So, for weeks Eugene has been telling Brooke that he wanted to adopt a Lemur while in Africa, on their honeymoon. He was quite convincing, according to Brooke. He even bought books and printed out research material on owning a Lemur and how to bring it into the country. Fast forward to the wedding day, Eugene wanted to end the joke with a bang and had a Lemur visit the wedding. All of the guests loved petting the Lemur and took photographs with the adorable little creature. The second guest was even more shocking, if you can believe that. No story needed, President Obama was the second guest! Ok fine… not the real Obama, but Reggie Brown an impersonator. “Obama” had the guests laughing historically. It was the most original form of entertainment that we have ever seen at a wedding. As you can see, this wedding will not be forgotten. Every detail was amazing and most importantly memorable. Kudos to all the amazing vendors especially… Jennifer J Events who perfectly orchestrated this platinum wedding. XO

Is there a secret to throwing an amazingly fun wedding? We’re not sure, but if there is, Vanessa and Alex can share it with you. This wedding was one of the most fun we have ever documented. Seriously, from the beginning of the day to the end, it was awesome. When we walked into Alex’s room, he had a huge afro wig on and was drinking whiskey out of a thermos labeled “Groom.” Vanessa’s room was filled with a bunch of family, friends, and kids, creating a feeling of happiness and excitement. Everyone invited to the wedding (about 300 guests) showed up to party, and we absolutely loved it! The energy on the dance floor was high from beginning to end. The climax had to be when Alex surprised Vanessa with The Spazmatics, an 80′s style cover band that they had seen while spending their first New Year’s Eve together. Vanessa left the ballroom to get a quick change of look and re-entered with the band jamming on the stage. From that point on we didn’t see the couple leave the dance floor (unless it was to grab a quick shot). Vanessa even jumped off the stage and flew into the crowd, being the first bride we’ve ever seen body surf at their own wedding! So much fun! We loved every minute of it.

{Laura & Carlos} Miami Wedding Photography | Westin Colonnade Coral Gables

Categories: Weddings Tags: + + + + + + + + + +

Opposites seem to attract, at least it seems that way with Laura and Carlos. Their choice in shoes couldn’t prove this point any better… Carlos chose vintage Jordan’s and Laura chose classic Badgely Mischka heels. Much difference is seen between these two at first glance, but the more time spent with them the more we realize that they compliment each other very well. A good example is a toast that Carlos gave… He wittily mentioned that Laura doesn’t like public speaking “I will take one for the team!” The guests laughed and Laura blushed at the statement and nodded her head as though it was true. The ceremony took place at St. Patricks Catholic Church in Miami Beach. This is definitely one of our favorite churches in South Florida. We experimented a bit and found some new favorite spots in the church. The architecture and stain glass windows make this church stand out. Laura and Carlos hosted a reception for their guests at the Westin Colonnade. The room was filled with amber lighting and delicate flowers. One unexpected surprise at the reception were the masks handed out during the Hora Loca. Besides the traditional colorful feather masks, they also handed out comic inspired masks. Spiderman, Batman, and their friends were dancing the night away… a definite first for us!

Veronica was breathtakingly beautiful.  She looked like an angel in her wedding gown.  She just glowed with happiness as she anxiously waited for the time to come.  It was just perfect, as she walked down the aisle towards the love of her life, Rob.  And, he looked on with complete joy.  Their vows were so sincere and sweet.  They celebrated with all of their family and friends at the Epic Hotel in Downtown Miami until the wee hours…  We even braved the winds and went up to the pool deck for some pictures…  Let’s just say, our light decided to go for a swim!  Good thing we always carry back up!  Lol.
Veronica + Rob, wishing you both a life full of love and laughter…  Xoxo.

Brenda + Gianni are one of those couples…  Beautiful, great chemistry, and so in-love!  It’s just so amazing to witness how, when they are together, the rest of the world seems to disappear, and it’s just the two of them.  (Their engagement session was no different!  Loved it!  Click here to view!)  But, their wedding day was magical from the moment she slipped on her Gabriella Arango dress and her Badgley Mischka shoes up until the last dance.  Just pure perfection!

Brenda + Gianni, we wish you so many more years of absolute bliss and love… Xo.

Lourdes and Juan’s wedding was classic, vintage, modern, goth and chic all wrapped into one.  They incorporated all these styles into a ceremony and reception at the historical Spanish Monastery in North Miami.  What a location and what a wedding!  There was inspiration found in every corner.  Statues, columns, crosses…rich in architectural details every where you turned.  After the ceremony ended we jumped into portrait mode to take advantage of the small window of beautiful light that we had.  I loved that we were able to incorporate some of the architecture into the portraits.  When the night fell the reception began and the first dance started!  The reception included tons of details including our standard signature book spotlighting a few favorite pictures from the couples engagement session (see picture below).  The couple also had a candy station, an espresso station and my favorite detail of the night CHURROS!  I take it back, I did think the churros being passed out as a midnight snack was such a cool touch; I think PS Photography’s photo wall was even cooler!  The photo wall was a HUGE hit, we had guests coming back two and three times to try out different props that we provided and pose in silly ways.  I can not wait until we have the opportunity to do this service again, the photo wall was so much FUN to shoot!

Jackie’s room was busy with preparations… Hair and make-up being done on several of the girls, including Jackie.  Laughter filled the room as they poured champagne and toasted to a beautiful wedding.  She slipped on her dress and looked absolutely stunning. And, her veil…  It was so gorgeous!  We just had to showcase it!  Gesu Catholic Church weddings are always breathtaking.  One of the oldest churches in Downtown Miami, it boasts of amazing architecture and tradition. But, of course, the Epic Hotel knows how to do weddings right!  Just amazing!  Ubis Music Productions lit up the room with such amazing colors which made the ambiance that much more amazing!  And, the guests at this wedding knew how to party!  And, everytime DJ Ubis played “Shots, shots, shots”, there went the crowd to the bar for some shots!  Loved that touch!!!

Jackie + Rey, may your marriage be full of love, and keep partying!!!  Shots, shots, shots!  Lol.

PS Artistry Wedding Films made a highlight video of their wedding (which is amazing), CLICK HERE to view it!

{Sandra + Scot} Get Married-Part 2: Miami Wedding Photography

Categories: Weddings Tags: + + +
11.18.2010

So here is Part 2 to my sister’s wedding.  Well they say rain on your wedding day is good luck so I wish that true because there was definitely rain on Sandra and Scot’s wedding day.  There was a terential down pour that lasted a long 5 minutes about 30 minutes before the ceremony was scheduled to start.  We were all up in the suite with Sandra taking portraits and enjoying some champagne when I glanced out the window to see this down pour, I almost choked on my champagne.  I quickly closed the curtains and ran downstairs and went into matron of honor mode.  After debating back and forth I decided to continue on with the plan of having the ceremony outside with the risk of more rain coming.  I know I am crazy but the alternative I knew was going to be such a dissapointment for my sister.  Since everything was setup huppa, seats, seat cushions, flowers everything it unfortunately all got wet and it was impossible to have the huppa brokendown and then put together again indoors.  So the ceremony went on outside.  In less than 30 minutes the biltmore staff, mystique flowers staff, and the girls of Ariel and Crystal Events ran around like chickens with their heads cutoff.  But they pulled it off!  They swept the rain puddles onto the grass, removed the pink cushions that were soak from the seats, dried off the seats, removed the rain from inside the acrylic huppa and so much more.  The ceremony began with a groomsen on the guitar stringing the beatles song “Here comes the sun” which is ironic she chose that song because it started to drizzle as Sandra and my dad walked down the long staircase of the Biltmore.  But just as it came it went as soon as Sandra and Scot joined hands.  I must say at this point I was seriously feeling light headed, so many emotions were going thru my head.  The fear of it raining more than just a drizzle so that the ceremony would come to a hault and everyone would have to dart indoors was an image that could not leave my head.  But of course my sister as soon as she whipped out her vows from her chest she made me laugh so much that my focus was on them and the ceremony.  It did not rain the rest of the day and the ceremony was full of laughter and tears.  My favorit part of course was the first kiss and the exiting down the alter, total bliss was covering their faces.  The photographs that Susie, Emily and Sofia took I think totally captured the emotion of the ceremony.  So then comes the portraits, part 3 coming soon!
