Westin Colonnade Coral Gables Wedding: Dalie + Mike

Dalie & Mike tied the knot at the beautiful Westin Colonnade in Coral Gables on Saturday February 13th, 2010. They had a lot of out of town guests and their trip to Miami was threatened by the huge storm happening up north, including the groom. Fortunately, everyone was able to make it to the Wedding and the re-routed flights were all worth it.

Dalie was a trooper during her Planning process, she was a frequent flyer and would make short trips to Miami and Boston, or 'marathons' as we knew it, to check things off her list.  This really paid off as she and Mike were able to enjoy their Wedding day among family and amazing friends.

I was really looking forward to this Wedding because Dalie had put together a great team of vendors and that's always a recipe for success. Thank you to all of the following profesionals who made this possible.

Dalie & Mike had a custom cake topper made of them and their cat.

As you can see, Shannon had everyone on the dancefloor and Dalie & Mike danced the night away.

Sparkler send-offs are not easy by any means.
They look great in shots but involve a lot of work to be staged. 
This has been by far the easiest to date for me and it's because I didn't do it alone.
Thank you Alex, Shannon and Jason (Dalie's Man of Honor) for your assistance in the Sparkler send-off.

Congratulations Dalie & Mike!!!
