Miami, you throw a darn pretty wedding. And when you team up with Karma Goddess, you are at your brightest. This wedding is living proof. Becca Borge Photography captured a love so pure that is spilled over effortlessly into a beautifully designed, wonderfully planned day. And I just can’t get enough.
From the photographer… Christina and Leslie’s wedding was an elegant oceanside wedding at a mansion in Miami, FL. The wedding took place at the historic Deering Estate and was the perfect fit for this couple. They are an ocean-loving pair who live by the water and boat often. I loved how they incorporated a myriad of bright florals and decor for a elegant tropical feel, and pearls throughout (pearl paper invites and stationary, pearl DIY place cards, pearl champagne flutes/dinner ware, and Christina’s engagement ring is even a pearl instead of diamond). Other fun elements include a beach chair “guestbook” and water-gun send off!
From the beautiful bride… Leslie and I both love the water. This was the main reason in the decor and venue selection. I also love history, so getting married at a historical site was also nice. We wanted something classy and elegant, but also incorporate our love for the sea. There was a lot of DIY. All the menus were designed and created by me and my mom. The aisle decor was DIY. My mom and I bought all of the sea shells and ocean decor and had the florist incorporate these into her designs.
