Charlotte & Robert's Wedding

Charlotte & Robert were married on Sunday March 15th, 2009 at The Shane Center in Miami Beach. It was a beautiful day with perfect weather. The Ceremony took place at 5:00 pm on the Terrace overlooking the Creek.

The focal point consisted of a wooden huppah accented with curly willow branches and white orchids in the top decorated by Benny from Lazarus Flowers. The white garden padded chairs were provided by Hitched Event Rentals. These were set-up arched from the aisle to create a cozy feel for the Bride & Groom's Ceremony.

Charlotte looked stunning!!! Slim mermaid gown, chapel length veil and perfect Hair & Make-up. I'll never forget that when it was time for her to walk-down the aisle in the arm of her father, she was emotionally overhelmed and graciously broke down in tears ;) It was a real special moment she had been planning for quite a while.

They were pronnounced Husband and Wife by Officiant Cecilia Johson from Weddings by Cecilia and who I highly recommended to the couple. After the Ceremony, a short "Cocktail Hour" was held in the breezeway.

As guests entered the Ballroom, they were welcomed by a silver Manzanita Tree with hanging votives sorrounded by Escort Rocks displaying the name of the Guest on one side and the Table number on the other. The Reception was glowing! Dark silver pintuck Linens, Light silver Charger Plates, White napkins and silver Chiavari Chairs with white cushions made a contrast on the tables. The Centerpieces consisted of Hydrangeas, Calla lillies and Curly willow branches. The sparkly silver mirrow vases were purchased by the bride so guests were able to take them and they can be re-used for home decor.

The favors were alternated with scented candles in silver organza bags and personalized photo M&M's boxes. The table numbers were DIY cylinders displaying the respective number on velum paper and accented with black and white ribbon on top and bottom. The bride also DIY'd the Cardbox.

The Sweetheart table decor included 3 silver mirror candle holders in different heights and 2 cylinders with callas on the ends of the table. It was not overkilled with flowers but it looked really elegant. On the dance floor ceiling, hanged white paper lanterns along with white parasols.It have the Reception a chic loungy feel that Charlotte was going for. To compliment that she rented white lounge furniture (a sofa and 2 ottomans) from Hitched.

Amelia & Carmen Catering served delicious Cuban food and were also in charge of linens, chargers, glassware and Bar. The Cake was custom made by Jose Angel from Mr. Bees as per the bride's request based on a picture from a Bridal Magazine. It was enhanced with orange orchids. The amazing Devynn Bohn from DB Images took some great shots and Javier from My Treasure Videos filmed the event.

Music from Ceremony to Reception was provided by DJ Ubi and he had the guests dancing all night! Everyone was having fun and Charlotte danced the night away and was later joined by her husband. :)

And to think that if a few decisions wouldn't have been made, this Wedding could not have been as beautiful as it was. Charlotte & Robert initially had another Venue but the grass was greener for them on the other side. It was all worthy in the end and I'm glad I was a part of it! I wish you guys many happy years together. Thank you for having me. Your families are great!
