I met Danielle & Andy through planner Linzi Etzion of Linzi Events (www.linzievents.com). At their request, we did their engagement session in downtown Miami and used the observation deck in their high rise so it definitely yielded some dramatic images! Additionally I took them to Virginia Key State Park in Key Biscayne to add in a little nature. Oh, of course, we really got to bond (especially with their rescue).
Their rehearsal dinner was at Villa Azur on South Beach, a beautiful French/Mediterranean restaurant set in a garden courtyard atmosphere. With Andy’s background uniquely varied, (roots in Egypt, Haiti, and France) the room was a cornucopia of personalities. It was additionally great to see all of their collage friends reunited and pick up right where they left off.
The wedding day festivities unfolded at the beautiful Ritz Carlton South Beach with Cleo Jorge (www.cleojorge.com) making sure Danielle’s makeup and hair looked stunning. Jose Graterol (www.josedesigns.com) did his customarily beautiful job of decor while Ross Bielejeski of Rock With U (www.rockwithu.com) once again kept them partying to the very end. Ruben Senderey’s crew handled video capture. Enjoy!
One thing I love about the Ritz-Carlton is it’s versatility. Check out Caroline & Michael’s wedding there with it’s World of Warcraft theme!
And you can’t miss the time the South Beach staff helped me coordinate a huge surprise marriage proposal! Video and photos included!
