If there is one thing I learned during Alexandra & Chris’ wedding is that love was part of every detail. We had such a fabulous weekend! All of their family and friends came to Miami for a destination wedding.The guests checked in to the historical Biltmore Hotel for a weekend to remember.
The weekend kicked off with an intimate rehearsal dinner inspired by the couple’s choice of honeymoon…Italy! Once the dinner and speeches were over, the doors were opened for the guests to join the families for cocktails, hors d’Oeuvres, and dancing. The party definitely started!
On Saturday morning, I could not believe that the day had finally arrived. Alexandra and I had been back and forth for months with the details of the wedding, and I couldn’t believe her BIG DAY was here!
Shuttles transported the guests to a sweet and romantic afternoon ceremony at the Church of the Little Flower. Mr. & Mrs. Chris Crissy were announced husband and wife and we were off to the Biltmore Hotel to celebrate.
The reception took place in the glamours Country Club Ballroom. Alexandra’s mom, Charlottle, and her aunt customized every detail of the wedding. They customized the menu cards, the place cards, the favor boxes…every little detail was done with so much love.
Perrish Design centerpieces plus a combination of Nuage Design linens created the perfect combination that were simply stunning for the ballroom.
It helped that we had plenty of candles in the ballroom, especially since the power went out a couple of times in the City of Coral Gables that night. But that didn’t stop the party, the VoxBlu band kept the music going and the dance floor was jam-packed!
One of my favorite parts of the night was the toast given by Gabrielle, Alexandra’s MOH and little sister. I will never forget the advice that she reminded her sister that their grandmother always says… “may the ups and downs of your marriage only be in the bedroom!” With a ballroom filled with laughter, followed by four different cake flavors made by the talented girls at Todo Dulce, it made for a perfect evening!
