We really enjoyed putting together this wedding which had a nice laid back, New Orleans kinda feel to it. With the French fleur-de-lis symbol as a main design factor for the overall theme for this wedding, it was fun bringing more of New Orleans feel to their Miami wedding. When picking their theme it was pretty easy to see the couple really loved New Orleans because they wanted to incorporate different aspects of the city with in their big day. One of the neatest things that really stood out and isn't done enough is that the couple had brass instruments play their ceremony music instead of the usual string instruments. That alone really set the tone for the rest of the evening.
Without even knowing, the couple picked the perfect venue, The Mayfair Hotel actually has fleur-de-lis symbols all around their beautiful hotel. The bride made miniature personalized street light just like you find in the streets of New Orleans which were used for guests seating cards, a super cute touch! They also had salt and pepper shakers for each guest to take home that were in the shape of...you guested it, the fleur-de-lis symbol. The symbol was everywhere but very tastefully used. Even the cake had a gorgeous silver fleur-de-lis broach that will probably become a keepsake for may years to come. The reception decoration was very pretty and the amber up-lighting gave the room a warm romantic glow. Their colors were purples, silver, white and a touch of vibrant pink.
This couple had such a busy schedule it was always a treat to be able to get together and get the planning taken care of. It was fun seeing their vision come to life and seeing how surprised they were in themselves that they could put together such a unique and beautiful wedding. It was our pleasure to just be part of that.
To the bride & groom: May your marriage be as symbolic and timeless as the fleur-de-lis symbol and as fun and enjoyable as the "Big Easy" New Orleans is. Wishing you both nothing but the very best and we hope you continue discovering all the amazing things that can be done when you both work at it together, like you did for your special day.
