From Masi Events… Gaby and Joe got engaged in the Fall of 2017 and Gaby immediately knew the perfect place to host their wedding. Gaby being from Miami had always dreamed of having her special day with Joe at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Gaby and Joe live in Portland Oregon and decided to work with us to help bring their wedding vision to life here in Miami. Gaby and Joe wanted to incorporate aspects of their current life inspired by their eclectic city and modern relationship to the overall feeling of their wedding. Vizcaya provides an impressively beautiful, yet more traditional garden backdrop. It was fun finding ways to infuse the competing styles of modern eclectic against the traditional french garden environment that the venue typically suites itself for. This wedding was going to be different, and we wanted to bring a style and decor not yet seen at the space.
Gaby’s childhood home in Miami has a lush garden full of tropical flowers and foliage. We decided to use elements from her home garden in the floral elements such as Vibrant Red and Yellow Heliconia Rostratas, surrounded by tropical foliage like monstera leaves and rich undertones of deep muted colors provided by Croton Leaves. The floral decor was balanced out with touches Gloriosa, Proteas and Citrus Orange Accents.
The ceremony was surrounded by modern lanterns and providing overwhelming candle light, with the main focus being a wooden arch with asymmetrical and lush tropical greens and overflowing hanging tropical floral. Gaby’s Bouquet was absolutely stunning, complementing the floral design, yet having its own personality with an incredibly intricate oversized weave of tropical leaves set off to one-side. All set in-front of the gorgeous back drop of Vizcaya’s Garden Mound. The cocktail reception took place in the indoor courtyard of the Vizcaya Mansion. We utilized modern linen-less wire cocktail furniture combined with low boy tables with modern bohemian Indigo Batik patterned linens.
The escort display consisted of a green floral wall with hexagonal mirrors with the guests names calligraphed on each tile. For the dinner reception furniture we wanted to create a bohemian backdrop with a modern geometric flair. We combined exposed wood tables with gold wire frame chairs and elevated tropical arrangements with geometric vessels, against round tables with a deep rich indigo blue velvet linen and white modern wire frame chairs. A fun flair was added to each place setting with the use of modern white & gold flatware, a gold rimmed coupe charger and fun tropical Maui print napkins with humming birds. The event space was centered around the dance floor a smoked oak wood floor and modern oversized geometric hanging floral. The menu was reflective of Gaby and Joe’s favorite dishes and restaurants from Portland and the all from their favorite vineyards from Oregon. It was a truly special evening, one full of memories for the two of them, their friends and family. It’s a wedding that will always be a found memory for us, not only because of the relationship developed with Gaby and Joe, but because of the fun we had bringing their eclectic modern vision to a traditional and elegant venue.
