Romantic Florida Wedding at Breakers West

Romantic weddings and Breakers West just seem to go hand in hand. They never fail to make us swoon, and when13:13 Photography is behind the lens capturing that romance, magic happens. It leaves us with a gallery too pretty to miss, and you can see it all here.

From the Bride…We have been together for over 5 years, and we wanted our wedding to reflect both our own taste for simplicity and to highlight our camaraderie and relationships with our family and friends. Since we are both Caribbean immigrants (Belize, and Trinidad and Tobago) – we also wanted to bring a taste of both our cultures to the event.

From the start we ensured that the events of the weekend would be personal and memorable to us. Stefan’s uncle catered the rehearsal dinner with a range of Trinidadian curries, stews and other dishes local to the island. The ceremony itself was officiated by the mother of one of our close friends. Wedding favors were prepared by our mothers (decorative wooden bowls using native Belizean trees and traditional Trinidadian black cake and Indo-Trinidadian sweets). We asked one of our invited friends to be the official master of ceremonies for the reception.

For music we hired Suenalo, a popular latin fusion band from Miami, who offered the perfect blend of dance and atmosphere that we felt would appeal to the diverse nationalities that made up our guest list – we also felt it was an homage to the region that we have called home for the past decade.

Our choice for photography and videography was also done with friends in mind. 1313 Photography was hired as a referral from one of our friends, whose wedding was also done by Ashley and Philip. Our videographer, Hitched Wedding Films, was similarly recommended.  Lina Portnoy did our flowers and came recommended by our venue but quickly felt like someone we had known for ages.

After all the planning and prepping we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day! From getting ready with my mom and sister, my rockstar nephews making the ceremony and dancing the night away with all my favorite people in the world.

Coral & Aqua Whimsical Garden Wedding

My favorite kind of couples are the ones who don’t take themselves too seriously. The couples who opt for a wedding of whimsy and color, and make their special day one epic party. It’s exactly the approach Eric and Sarah took for their Florida garden nuptials, and thanks to the fabulous Miranda Hattie Events, it went off without a hitch. SMPers, your Monday pick-me-up a la Daniel Lateulade starts here!

From the Groom… At first, Sarah and I had a picture of a crafty, casual, Kinfolk-style wedding, but as we went through the planning process, the “guest experience” became more and more important. Our biggest concern was that the wedding felt devoid of pretense, not stuffy or overly formal, but rather casual, simple, and easy. We wanted our guests to feel like guests, like they were getting a weekend away with friends. Everything from the decor to the experience design stemmed from this idea of ease. We hope it was successful too, making something feel easy actually takes a lot of work!

Sarah and I spent most of the cocktail hour and dinner trying to spend a few minutes with every single person that made it to our wedding, so naturally both of those stages of the evening vanished in a blink of an eye. Right around 10pm, our guests were invited from the dinner area to the terrace for deserts, coffee, and dancing, and we hadn’t had a chance to sit or eat the entire evening. As the pavilion emptied out, our table of 12 stayed behind and in the middle of the chaos that is a wedding, we had this very intimate, calming 30 minutes to eat, drink and laugh with with some of our most cherished friends.

From Sugar(ed)… I absolutely love how Jonathan Connolly was able to capture the spirit of Bianca and Vince’s wedding in these photos. This is a couple that knows how to have fun and their goal was to make their wedding an amazing party for their friends and family–and they totally rocked it. The weather was perfect, the decor was elegant, the food was delicious, but above all, it was a celebration that reflected their joie de vivre. A gift for public speaking must be a genetic trait, because the ceremony performed by Bianca’s brother, the speech by her father, and toast by her little brother are in a three-way tie for the most entertaining and heartfelt words that I have ever heard at a wedding. It was wonderful to hear these three men express their love for the beautiful couple that I came to know over the past ten months. Congratulations, Bianca and Vince; here’s one last two-cheek kiss from me!
