CHRISTINA & ETHAN || MARRIED IN MIAMI
If you follow along with us you might remember our spectacular Miami wedding we planned back in March. The event was nothing short of amazing from the beginning to end. The ceremony and reception took place at The W South Beach on a warm spring Saturday. This wedding was extra special to the SB team as both Christina and Ethan are dear friends of Stephanie's. The day could not have been anymore perfect, not even a huge Miami thunderstorm could ruin the special event. The ceremony took place in one of The W South Beach's event spaces, which was decorated with amazing modern gold chandeliers. The reception was held in the W's ballroom and was the perfect mix of modern with a touch of glamour. The room was covered in soft blush, black, with delicate metallic accents. It was absolutely breathtaking. It was lit with soft candle light, which emphasized the gobo with the couple's initials. One of the most unique aspects of the reception was the groom's cake. The groom is a huge fan of Lionel Richie, so what could have been more fitting than a life-size cake of the star's head? Take a look at all the amazing details of Christina and Ethan's special day!
"Ethan and I are still trying to decompress after our magical weekend in Miami and can't believe how fast it all went! We want to thank each of you for the spectacular job done with our wedding. Nothing stops your team, not even the biggest snow storm of the year! We are so grateful to you for your commitment and determination to get to Miami no matter the conditions. Driving from Baltimore to Miami is no easy (or quick) feat but your team really stepped it up to make sure you were onsite in time for prep meetings and to get things started. Thank you! Jordan, thank you so much for your tireless efforts to make all of our printed materials beautiful. We loved the clean, modern design you helped us with and it really set up the elegant feel of the entire wedding for us. Thank you! Michelle, you are a rock star for joining the onsite team to help make our special day go off without a hitch! You were so attentive and helpful to Ethan and I on the day of the wedding and we were so grateful you were there. Thank you! Rachael, thank you so very much for all of the hard work you did throughout the entire planning process. It is a lot of hard work to go back and forth with our vendors to make sure we get exactly what we wanted and your diligence really paid off. Every detail was tended to and in the end came together seamlessly. Thank you! Stephanie, what can I say? You and your team are the BEST! You are one of my greatest friends and it was so special to me to have you design our wedding. You know Ethan and I so well and that really came through in how everything turned out. I don't think we could have translated who Ethan and I are as individuals and a couple better than how you did. You really understand us and who we are and all of that shined through in our event! We really loved how everything came together and couldn't have imagined it any better! Thank you!!"
