Claudia and Michael are high school sweethearts. On October 8th, they celebrated their 8th anniversary by getting married. The ceremony and reception took place at the grand Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. We had plans of an outside ceremony, cocktails inside the Courtyard of the Grand House, and the reception would take place on the terrace overlooking the water. Unfortunately, the Miami weather had other plans… rain, wind, thunderstorm, and tornado warnings. But that did not stop us.
When your surrounded by family and friends, nothing can bring down the happiness of your wedding day. Luckily, Claudia & Michael had a large bridal party to keep them smiling throughout the day.
It makes a huge difference when you are working together with a team that has the experience and flexibility to make a venue perfect during all worst case scenario backup plans. We worked with Contempo Linens, Avant Gardens & Mena Catering to accommodate our 130 guests inside the museum and create Claudia’s vision for her reception. Claudia’s color scheme went perfectly in the museum. The navy blue and ivory tones with the candle lights created a romantic ambiance.
We created an intimate stand around ceremony lead by Rev. Eddie Rodriguez, where Claudia & Michael exchanged their vows and became Mr. & Mrs. We later converted the ceremony area to our party lounge room. Inside the museum we used every area possible as best as we could to create a different background for every aspect of the wedding. The East Loggia was used for the ceremony and for the party lounge, the Tea Room was used to display our cake and for the cocktail hour, the Courtyard was our dining room, and the Grand Staircase was used for the introductions and first dance.
It was a romantic and amazing night. The food was delicious, the guests spent the night on the dance floor, the cake and parfait were perfect for a sweet touch, and Claudia & Michael enjoyed every second of it!
I am so thankful that I was able to help Claudia & Michael on their wedding day, and help make this day a perfect memory. It could not have been made possible without such an amazing group of vendors. Adrienne and her amazing staff at Vizcaya Museum, Jorge and his staff at Mena Catering, Rick and his team at Avant Gardens, Amanda at Contempo Linens, Martha & Jesus from Unique Design Studios, Leo and his team at DvP Studios, Elegant Temptations, Rev. Eddie Rodriguez, Xio at Promo Djs, Gloria Pelo, Meilan Limo, and Christina & Crystal who are my backbone!
