South Beach Romantic Winter Wedding
I first met Mari at the Setai for drinks and a venue walkthrough a few months before her wedding. We just hit it off. I got to hear all about how she met Kyle through a mutual friend even though they lived at opposite ends of California, how he makes her laugh, and how special this wedding would be. All of the above was so true! The intimate wedding ceremony took place at the Setai Hotel in South Beach with only family in attendance. This felt so warm and special because it was like a big family reunion. Sides collided and met for the first time. It was amazing to witness the blending of two incredible souls and their beautiful families.
We started off their wedding day in the Setai's Mediterranean feeling courtyard then moved through the sand stone architecture towards the beach. Kyle had a family member who was a cinematographer so Kyle shared my enthusiasm for light, lines, and depth. I frequently would squeal and kind of freak out about how gorgeous they were and what stunning photos they were giving me. As we stepped onto the beach, on lookers definitely thought they were famous and many jaws dropped and iPhone photos were snapped. I mean Mari was an absolutely stunner in her black, off the shoulder wedding dress and her dapper and joyful husband is the perfect compliment. Mari's flowers were also on trend with Patone's color of the year: Ultra Violet aka purple. It was the perfect pop against her classic black. Sunset portraits on the beach illuminated the turquoise blue waters as the twirled, kissed, and laughed some more.
Their ceremony was after dark, but Kyle had a vision of colorful and romantic uplighting that brought the space to life! The palm trees and lanterns were illuminated and set the tone for the evening. I stayed late talking with their family and making plans to come visit in California because they're just the best people! I loved every moment of Mari and Kyle's wedding day and felt so honored to be so welcomed by them and their family. Truly just a blessing to work with the kindest, coolest, and most fun couple. Thank you both for the most wonderful evening and see you in Cali :D
