About 6 months to their wedding we received a call from Myriam and Ernest. A fun loving couple, living in Seattle, Washington wanting to exchange marriage vows in Sunny Miami. With only one trip to Miami before the wedding, we chose a wedding venue, rentals, photography, videography and florals. Not only was it 1 trip but she only had 2.5 days and 1 of those she actually spent with her two best friends. Needless to say, it was crunch time during her trip. Fortunately, she had a vision and we were able to work as a team and make it happen.
What started out as a quaint 75 person wedding, ended up being a 140 guest wedding. She was totally freaking out the two weeks before the wedding but together we made some changes to accommodate the extra people and still have the beautiful wedding she always dreamed of.
Their wedding was so full of rich traditions! There was presentation after presentation honoring the couple with beautiful Burundi and Rwanda songs and dances. With all 140 guests coming from all parts of the world, it was a room overflowing with love.
The décor was fun and elegant! Silver crushed linens & Chivari chairs, offered an elegant but modern touch while the pink flowers of all shades added a fun and playful feel to their beautiful wedding day décor. Fuchsia up lights brought the finishing touch and the room radiated with a warm glow which was only accentuated the beautiful crystal chandeliers.
Our favorite part of the evening had to be seeing all the different dances. They way the dancers moved, the different outfits.. it was definitely a wedding we will never forget!
