What do you get when you combine a breathtaking Miami Beach location, beyond beautiful blooms from Petal Productions and a fab vintage meets rustic chic vibe that is all sorts of crazy gorgeous? Well, lovelies… you get this stop-you-in-your-tracks Fisher Island Club wedding from the geniuses at 13:13 Photography – and, oh my goodness, is it amazing. Yep – this is the kind of affair that is literally overflowing with warm your heart moments and one pretty, pretty detail after another… and you can see every ounce of lovely right here.
From the Bride… We wanted something with Great-Gatsby-meets-rustic-meets-old-Miami style. We chose the Fisher Island Club on Fisher Island as the perfect location and venue for the vision. There is a charming ferry that is the only transportation on and off the island. As far as a design direction, we were aiming for classic simplicity, utilizing lots of lanterns, flowers and natural elements such as the gorgeous banyan tree that we were married in front of. Because this was a destination wedding for most of our guests, we wanted to be thoughtful about them having a good time and creating a party atmosphere, so we shortened the time sitting at the table by eliminating appetizers and added a cocktail hour instead. And who doesn’t appreciate to a sweet, late-night snack? So we included a dessert bar, and towards the end of the night, we had an additional ice cream sundae bar when everybody was dancing and hungry again.
My favorite details of the day were Ellie (our pup!), lanterns (on table and around pool), video cameras for the guests to use to videotape (and photograph) for us, a Polaroid camera for guest book and our best friend from college as our officiant. I wore a bracelet that my great-grandmother, grandmother and mom wore, and we provided flip flops on the dance floor so the girls could dance the night away.
