Modern Garden Wedding at the James Hotel in Miami

This is exactly how we envision a Miami affair… modern, chic, a couple dressed to the nines. And all with a white hot backdrop and a wildly cool venue like the James Hotel. It brings a new face to the beach wedding. We call it seaside chic crafted at the hands of Merari Photography,  Jessica Estrada and Ines Naftali. Find even more of the day right here.

From Merari PhotographyJeff and Alisha had a lovely laid-back wedding at the James Hotel. Everything from the groom’s boat shoes to the colorful and tropical flower arrangements screamed calm, cool and fun. They saw each other right before signing Ketubah and exchanged vows under a beautiful Chuppah. The lace dress, groom’s bowtie and the bridesmaid’s assorted dressed in various shades of white, tan and blush added some romantic elements to the day.

From Urban Lace Events… Dana and Brett live in New York City but decided to have their wedding at the Viceroy Miami, so guests could enjoy a destination wedding without traveling long distances. When I first started working with Dana she told me she envisioned a modern wedding with a little glitz and glam that reflected the vibrancy of Miami and their own personal style. One of the first things Dana revealed was her intense aversion towards linens, in particular tablecloths. So instead, we decided to go with acrylic top tables for the reception that did not require tablecloths. However, to keep the room interesting and avoid it from looking flat, we used a mixture of acrylic top tables with white pop chairs and square tables with sequin linens and ghost chairs. Dana initially did not like the linens, but after she got a peek at the gorgeous white sequin tablecloths and sequin chevron runners from La Tavola her mind had been changed.

Dana and Brett fell in love with a local NYC chocolatier Liddabit Sweets a few weeks before the wedding and wanted their guests to experience their favorite treat, so we had custom labels designed that we adhered to the chocolate boxes and used them as escort cards.

The menus, table numbers and escort stickers were all designed with a pink flamingo, a subtle nod to the Florida destination.

DIY Wedding at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

Admittedly, I am super un-crafty.  With all of my effort, there’s not a DIY bone in my body.  So when I come across a wedding as gorgeous as this sweet affair, I am all sorts of impressed.  Because this, loves, is DIY at its finest, from that gorgeous gown to the yummy cakes to the paper goods all crafted by seriously awesome family + friends.  See it all captured by Ricky Stern right here.

From Ricky Stern PhotographyThis gorgeous wedding was a true DIY masterpiece by the bride and groom (as well as their family and friends).  Here is the bride, Stephanie, running down each item they crafted by hand:

The tree stumps: we actually went to my uncle’s land in Naples to cut down a tree to make those tree stumps.  We made a family trip out of it.
• The three cakes were made by my best friends (chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet).
• The Podium used during the ceremony and all the rest of the directional signs throughout the event were made and designed by Lester and myself.
• The guestbook I made with the Shutterfly website.
• The card box we bought and designed ourselves, Lester added the Plexiglas for safety precautions.
• All the mason jars and flowers in them were bought by us and my family and I put them all together the night before. My mother actually made the arrangement for the large tool box on the book signing table that came out beautiful.
• My mother-in-law made my wedding dress and veil.
• The seating chart was created by myself and another girlfriend of mine.
• The candy station and the candy station sign was created by my sister and myself.
• The invitation was made between a large group of us (family and friends).
