Fallyn and Rodrigo at Temple Beth David Miami

I will truly miss working with Fallyn, Rodrigo, and their families! We had such a great time for the last year planning their fabulous wedding at Temple Beth David in Miami. The ceremony was held in the historic sanctuary, followed by a cocktail hour held in the Temple's Judaic Museum, and the reception in the beautiful grand ballroom.

Guests dined on a fantastic 5-course meal including a pretty incredible dessert quartet pictured below. Every detail was tended to, including beautiful monogrammed menu cards and personalized napkin ring favors.

The decor concept was tones of fuchsia, pink, red, and deep burgundy with accents of gold for a mix of traditional and modern.

Chris and Brianna's Spanish Monastery Wedding!

After over a year of working with Brianna and Chris, I was thrilled to see this chic and organic vision finally come together on their wedding day. The Ancient Spanish Monastery set the scene for the elegant affair and all of the little details really made this wedding special. Brianna chose really beautiful and natural elements like wheat grass that were used throughout the wedding. Wheatgrass surrounded the cake, made a bed for her adorable placecards, and was used in tiny glass cubes to adorn her centerpieces. Simple yet luxurious papers were used for her placecards and menu cards. Together we designed her fabulous invitations which were a 3-dimensional invitation that came to each guest in a kraft paper box. The box was lined with Spanish Moss and finished with an ivory card and sprig of curly willow wrapped in copper wire. The florals were shades of white and green on top of chocolate satin linens.

The guests dined on a huge variety of hors d'oeuvres from ahi tuna to kobe beef sliders and then were later treated to a dual plate of steak and snapper. Later in the night guests had a huge selection of sweets to choose from including fresh baked chocolate chip cookies with shots of cold milk, a candy display filled with white confections, and their choice of red velvet cake with white chocolate ganache or vanilla cake with fresh strawberries and cream with lemon zest buttercream!

The guests were just as entertained as they were well fed with a latin trio, flamenco performance, and photobooth.

Although, there was a little rain, it didnt damper the party in the slightest!

Congratulations Brianna and Chris!

Special thank you to Gregory and Heidi Paul from Gregory Paul Photography who took these amazing shots!
