My husband and I hosted an intimate wedding of 65 guest at the beautiful W South Beach on 8/18/18. Choosing the right venue was the first thing we wanted to cross off our check list, as we wanted every other aspect of our special day to compliment the hotels iconic design. From the flatware, to the wedding cake, even the bridal parties attire was consistent with the modern luxury vibe you feel as soon as you walk into this hotel. Being that my husband and I were both born and raised in the gorgeous city of Miami, every detail of our wedding was influenced and representative of that. The ceremony took place in a private oasis filled with greenery, where the focal point was the alter with white cascading flowers. I walked down the aisle, accompanied by father, to the sound of the traditional “Bridal Chorus” orchestrated perfectly by our Harp, Violin and Cello trio. We shared personalized vows, followed by the lighting of a unity candle and sealed with the most perfect kiss. While our guest enjoyed delicious drinks and horderves during the cocktail hour, our photographer walked us to every scenic corner and we took advantage of the fabulous photo ops. After keeping it (semi) together for a good two hours, it was finally time to let loose and enjoy the reception to the fullest. Before walking into the ballroom the first thing you saw was a huge touchscreen mirror that took amazing photos of our guest. Because come on... who doesn’t love a good photo booth moment?! This Magic Mirror and the LED stage our DJ set up showcasing throwback photos of us definitely gave this day some extra “Wow factor!”. After introductions, I had a first dance with my new hubby, my father, my brother and my Man of Honor! That’s right, we don’t conform to gender rules around here. My Matron of Honor was my best friend of 20 years, Cesar. My husbands “Best Woman” was his sister, Unicee! Not trying to toot our own wedding bells, but the speeches our MOH & BW gave were probably thee most epic in wedding history! Now that the speeches were done, it was time for some good old slightly inappropriate lap dancing done by the groom to Genuwine’s “Pony” followed by a garter & bouquet toss. Then came two robots with drums, cryo guns, Mardi Gras beads and glow in the dark foam sticks to really get the party started during the much anticipated “Hora Loca.” Needless to say, we had the time of our lives. If we could relive that day over and over again, we would in a millisecond. All the sacrifices made and planning that went into that one unbelievable day are absolutely 1000% worth it!
