From Sawyer Baird… Delaine & Michael are some of the sweetest humans I have ever met! When we were discussing locations for an engagement session many places came up… some being Savannah, Jacksonville, etc. Finally we decided that we would love to go somewhere that neither of us have been before – Miami. Delaine & Michael live in Tampa so the short drive was nothing for them & the quick plane ride for me was easy too.

When scouting out Miami I had known about Vizcaya for some time. It was on the back of my mind from the very beginning. I knew that it would just be something special. After talking to Delaine and showing her the images of Vizcaya we knew that it was the perfect fit for them. We were also excited to know that it would be something different than what is common for most engagements. They trusted me 110% on this one – and I am so so happy that they did.

Later we continued the engagement session to a nearby beach with some of the city in the background. We grabbed coconuts (well my other half 6’6′ man did!) and had a little picnic on the ocean complete with a beautiful sunset!

It really was the perfect day…

From Bridges CinemaThis is the wedding day story of Monica and John. What a beautiful love story!! Monica and John met at medical school at Penn State University in Hershey, PA. They dated throughout medical school. It was during the Christmas break that John proposed at one the spots Monica often frequented as a little girl.

They planned their wedding at the gorgeous Villa Woodbine and St. Hugh’s Catholic Church. One of the highlights of the evening was the performance of one of Monica’s favorite local band, Palo. This Afro-Cuban Funk band is a 2015 Grammy Nominee and 2014 Latin Grammy Nominee. You will have a chance to listen to a snippet of one of their songs in the highlight.

From the beautiful Bride… Brian and I met 11 years ago on a summer trip to Israel. Over the years that followed, we remained friends and eventually started dating in the summer of 2008. 5 years later we got engaged and on November 2nd, 2014 tied the knot on what was THE best day, ever.

We live in New York, Brian is from Houston and I’m originally from Puerto Rico, however the majority of my (very) large family is in Miami, so we decided on a Florida wedding because, hello, who wouldn’t want to spend a weekend in the Sunshine State?! Finding a venue wasn’t easy — the large number of wedding guests eliminated many of the outdoor venues I had my eye on and I wasn’t crazy about the idea of an ornate, stuffy ballroom. What drew us to the JW Marriott Marquis was the modern, open, neutral space that basically gave us the freedom to do whatever we wanted with! And do with it we would — with the expert and oh-so-wonderful taste of Miranda Estes, my vision of a classic, elegant garden party was brought to life.

It’s impossible for me to pick a favorite moment of the night, but highlights include the intense Hora that kicked the party off, an impromptu serenade of a “Wicked” classic by my dear friend Emily, and the insanely delicious artisanal Latin ice cream stand we hired from Miami’s Little Havana district. The absolute best part though, was marrying my best friend and celebrating the start of our new life surrounded by our closest friends and family.

From the beautiful Bride… Jeff and I met in the fall of 2008. Mutual friends accidentally brought us together in a relationship that no one saw coming. After almost 6 years together, and 20 months of wedding planning, in the midst of an international move, I can safely say that our wedding ended up being the best day of our lives thus far. Friends and family flew in from all over the world and our focus for the weekend was to celebrate them. While we knew the day would be forever special for us, we wanted the people who had glued us together and supported us over the years to feel loved and thanked. Our goal was to make the night feel like a gorgeous dinner at our dream home. Comfortable, chic, classic, and the most fun ever.

Picking the location came easy. Moving our wedding from Santa Monica, CA to Coral Gables, FL after finding out that Jeff’s job would be moving us to the Bahamas, the only place that came to mind was Villa Woodbine. My aunt had gotten married there over 20 years ago and I had been the flower girl. My mind was locked. My mom toured the venue with her iPad to reassure me that the Villa was still as beautiful as it was in my memory and we signed the dotted line quickly, and well before the wedding. Finding Miranda was my next step and a true blessing. I had scoured the internet and loved every wedding of hers. Jeff and I would have been lost without her during this insane time in our lives. She kept us on track and in the magic. Telling people in the wedding industry you want a modern, yet cozy wedding centered around baby’s breath and toile will get you some odd reactions. But Miranda went with it and helped me design the wedding I had been hoping for.

Throughout the process I wasn’t lying when I said I had the absolute wedding dream team. I never needed to worry about how things would turn out, because I loved everything these ladies touched. From planning, to flowers, to photography… I had the best of the best.

The ceremony was a traditional Catholic mass at St. Kieran’s Catholic Church, the cocktail hour was led by a Spanish Guitarist, the first dance was Ed Sheeran “Thinking Out Loud”, and the Best Man’s speech started the party. We danced the night away in the most beautiful venue, punctuated by taper candles, bistro lights, chandeliers, crisp white flowers, and toile.

I was definitely a bride with a vision. All white flowers. No leaves. Toile accents. Fun music. Baby’s breath. No sweetheart table. Classic. Clean. Chic. Lots of Dancing. Those were the guidelines. I think we nailed it. Everyone in attendance wished it was an annual event. Success!

From the beautiful Bride… When creating our wedding we imagined the day as romantic and relaxed. With the hustle and bustle of every day life, we wanted to create an intimate affair filled with our closest family and friends where the day just seemed to stop for a few hours. Mike and I rarely have time to just stop and celebrate our love, and that was most important to us when putting together our big day. We wanted this day to be a celebration of two old souls finally joining as one. With the help of our amazing planner, Miranda Hattie Events, and well over a year of planning we were able come up with a day beyond our wildest dreams. Throughout the celebration we used a palette of neutrals; white, ivory taupe and blush. We felt that these colors lent a timeless feel, while the imperfect floral arrangements and a variety of candles and tabletop accents added softness and warmth. The Mediterranean sensibility of Villa Woodbine was enhanced with soft, flickering light and a subtle variety of textures. We wanted the candlelight to reflect off the mercury and glass accent pieces to help set a romantic mood throughout the event. Rustic vintage touches, such as wooden farmhouse tables, vintage chairs, and antique cake stands helped add to the overall vibe we were going for.
