Lindsay and Brett live in Miami and reached out to me right after their engagement for my help in planning and coordinating their big day. Along with Lindsay’s mother Cindy and the power of internet and email we all collaborated on what you can easily see in these pictures was a beautiful event. Lindsay chose the color palette of deep blue, ivory, and touches of soft greens and purples which in itself gives a feeling of richness and elegance. The bridesmaids wore Vera Wang and the groomsmen donned classic black tuxes. After their emotional ceremony the bride and groom came out of the church to a flurry of bubbles and then were off in Lindsay’s family’s boat for some stunning photos on the water. When they arrived back on land it was time to head to Erlowest for their cocktail hour and reception. The ballroom of Erlowest was transformed by specialty linens and large candelabra centerpieces designed by David Michael Schmidt of Renaissance Floral Design. We went with a Renaissance (or Tuscan) style head table where the bride and groom sat at one long table with all of their bridal party and their dates. On this table David amped it up with a mix of high and low arrangements to fill out the space and make it the true focal point in the room. For a fun activity and keepsake for their guests Lindsay and Brett used an old fashioned photo booth so that people could go in and get silly pictures taken of themselves. They also gave everyone a frame in the shape of an Adirondack chair in order for their guests to display one of the photo booth pics back at home.
Joining me on this wedding was a true all star team. Of course I always love working with the fabulous Erin Dewey at The Inn at Erlowest. She makes everything flow so smoothly and is a true joy to work with. Alisha Clark was on hand as the couple’s wedding photographer and they had John Tegan on board for videography. Both Alisha and John were representing Clark + Walker Studios and did a great job with Lindsay and Brett’s photos and videos. DJ Adam Conway of Piano Man DJ kept everyone dancing all night long, and my lovely stylist duo of Amy Elizabeth Makeup Designs and Kristen from Timeless Updos made all the women look so very beautiful. I also had Premiere Transportation providing shuttle service via limo and limobus, and of course the wildly talented David Michael Schmidt of Renaissance Floral Design who did all of the flowers and rentals for this event. See, I told you it was an all star team!
This wedding was a very special one for me and I truly enjoyed the year I spent working with Lindsay and her mom on the planning.
Thank you Lindsay and Brett for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
