“The Party” – Bea & Tom’s Wedding Reception

My last posting on this amazing wedding is the fun party.  The reception was held at the Biscayne Bay Yacht Club.  The place was beautifully decorated with an Alice in Wonderland Theme (check out the cool bar).  The place cards were displayed on a miniature garden created by Beatriz, and colorful rose arrangements and lights hung from the trees creating a delightful atmosphere.   Tom & Beatriz’ guests enjoyed a wonderful dinner, and danced the night away.  Please enjoy the slideshow I’ve created with some of the shots from the party.  It was great to work at this wedding with event planner, Sari, from Events by Sari; DJ Michael Sarysz, from Sarz Entertainment, http://www.sarzentertainment.com/ and videographer, Ram, from Fandango Wedding Films, http://www.fandangoweddingfilms.com/

Best wishes to Beatriz and Tom for an eternal honeymoon!

Bea & Tom’s Wedding Ceremony

Tom & Beatriz’s wedding ceremony took place at the beautiful Old Spanish Monastery in North Miami Beach.  Beatriz was one of the happiest brides I have seen walking, or should I say dancing down the isle.  The dancing started early at this wedding, as you will see in the slideshow.  It was lots of fun for the bride and groom and all their guests.  It definitely was a happy ceremony.  They still said beautiful words to each other when they exchanged vows, lit the unity candle, and prayed together, but they mixed a little fun with all the traditional stuff.  I loved it!  The slideshow I have created features the song of the night, “Forever” by Chris Brown.  Enjoy!

“It’s Going to be a Great Night” And it was!

I recently visited the Mondrian Hotel on South Beach to capture some shots of Beatriz getting ready for her big wedding night.  Beatriz is not only gorgeous, but has the warmest, kindest heart I have seen in a while.  It is really a treat to get to know her, and I was honored to be part of her wedding day.  Her makeup was done by Nikki Oxley, check her out at http://www.facebook.com/nikki.oxley and her hair by PapoAdal Hair Design.  When it was all said and done, after much pampering and some wonderful glasses of wine, Beatriz was ready.  She looked absolutely radiant! I took a few portraits of the beautiful bride, and we headed out to the Old Spanish Monastery where her handsome groom, Tom, awaited.  Stay tuned for photos from the unique, fun, and beautiful ceremony that followed coming up next here on my blog.

Eileen & Pedro’s Wedding Day

Eileen and Pedro’s wedding was very special to me.  I have known them and their family for a while now and I have taken part as their photographer on many of the events leading up to their big day.  Needless to say, on the day of the wedding I was eager to go and begin the celebration with them.  We got started at the Mayfair Hotel in Coconut Grove where Eileen, her mother, grandmother and bridesmaids got ready.  The ladies  had a good time pampering themselves and enjoying their time together with Eileen as they helped her prepare for the wedding.  They did a good job and Eileen looked amazing!!!  I then went to the Coral Gables Congregational Church where I met Pedro and his groomsmen for some photos before the ceremony.  The ceremony was conducted by Reverend Milan, and it was beautiful, personal and very touching.  Eileen and Pedro made sure to include everyone in their family as part of their ceremony.  We then went to the Ronald W. Shane Center in Miami Beach for the reception.  The place was decorated with a winter wonderland theme, they had two beautiful Christmas trees and snowflakes everywhere with an elegant white, blue and silver color scheme.  On this very special day Eileen and Pedro were surrounded by their family and friends whose love for this couple was contagious.  Congratulations!!!  I leave you with the slideshows I’ve created with some of the many photos captured throughout the wedding day.  Enjoy!!!!

“Special Thanks to my son Chris for second shooting at the church, you can check his work out at www.mangosandpeaches.com and to my husband for graciously driving me around from venue to venue making my job a lot easier.”

Carlos & Sarah’s Wedding

Carlos and Sarah’s wedding was so much fun!!!  They celebrated it at a friend’s home in Palmetto Bay and from the moment I drove up to the house on the beautifully landscaped endless driveway I knew it was going to be spectacular.  Biscayne Bay is the breathtaking backdrop to this house and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day.  Sarah and Carlos opted for a casual, yet elegant wedding with a simple ceremony and a very fun party.  Everything about their wedding was as beautiful, special and unique as they are.  I leave you with a slideshow of some of my favorite images from the day

Lenin & Alexandria’s Wedding

Lenin and Alex’s wedding was so much fun!!!  Everything about their wedding was unique, Alex’s bright Sunflower bouquet, their fun cake top, and Alex’s photos in her wedding gown and soccer shoes just to mention a few of the many little details that made their wedding so “them”.  The event took place at the Signature Gardens with a beautiful ceremony in the courtyard followed by a fun reception.  Family and friends gathered to celebrate Lenin and Alex’s special day and their love for this couple was inspiring.  This was the first time I’ve ever seen the crowd applaud when the bride walked down the aisle.  It was great!!!  I leave you with some of the photos taken throughout the day.

Robert & Sasha’s Wedding

It was my absolute pleasure to photograph Robert and Sasha’s special day.  We got started at the Hotel Sofitel with Sasha getting ready.  Their wedding ceremony was held at the Plymouth Congregetional Church in Coconut Grove and from there it was off to Killian Palms Country Club for the fun reception.  Sasha and Robert are in love and surrounded by a loving family and good friends. All these ingredients put together made their wedding  a very emotional, beautiful, fun, and unforgettable event.  Thank you to Robert, Sasha and their family for making me part of this special occasion.  Shout out to Brenda for introducing me to Sasha and Robert.

Lily’s Bridal Portraits

I finally get to post Lily’s bridal portraits!!!  We went to the Spanish Monastery on August 31st to shoot the bridal session.  It was a very stormy day and for a while there I thought we were not going to be able to go through with the session.  Lily however kept a possitive attitude and kept saying “It’ll be fine” and fine it was; we lucked out!!!  The Spanish Monastery is a beautiful, peaceful and very inspiring place and its Spanish architecture complemented Lily’s traditional and elegant style very well.  Lily looked amazingly beautiful in her wedding dress and mantilla style veil and her happiness came through in each one of the many, many pictures we took.  I had a hard time choosing some favorites.  Lily and Felix’s wedding will be on Saturday, September 20th and I couldn’t be

more excited about it.  Since I’m Lily’s godmother, I will not be shooting their wedding, but we will have Melissa and Javier from Simply Captivating there to capture every detail.  I’ll be posting some of those images as soon as we have them.  For now, I leave you with a few of Lily’s bridal session images.  I hope you like them as much as I do. 

 

 

See you at the wedding!!!

Paulina & Juan Carlos’ Wedding

Paulina and Juan Carlos are such a great couple!  They have not only joined their lives in marriage, but they bring their six beautiful children together in the process and now they are one big happy family.  They call themselves the “Brady Bunch.”  The ceremony and reception were held at the Reception Palace Ballrooms.  The party kicked off with an impressive choreographed dance by the bride and groom which was a lot of fun for everyone to watch.  This couple sure knows how to party and their happiness spilled over to all their guests who joined them on the dance floor for a fun filled night.  Best wishes and many blessings to Paulina, Juan Carlos and their children.  Here are a some of the many photos I took at their wedding.
