A Classic Miami Wedding with a Modern Vibe at the East Hotel

Monica and Jose’s classic Miami Wedding at the East Hotel was one of my favorite summer weddings. They were married at the end of summer on a spectacular Miami day at the new East Hotel at Brickell City Center. After their amazing engagement session in downtown Miami, complete with a vintage car the belongs to Jose’s parents – I knew their wedding day would be spectacular.  Monica and Jose have the kind of connection that is palpable, they fit together perfectly. Every moment of their wedding day fabulous to photograph. From their intimate moments with family, a fantastic party at Crush, and one of the cutest flower girls I have ever seen!

Miami Wedding at the East Miami

Classic Elegance with a modern touch

Monica began her day with bridal prep by Marz, with completed two gorgeous hairstyles on her wedding day. After a fun champagne & confetti toast with her bridesmaids, there were a few tears as she silently read a beautiful card written by Jose. The moment she stepped in to her Monique Lhullier wedding gown I could not wait to photograph their first look. The long sleeved gown, with lace detail was the perfect texture to accent the beautiful grounds of the East Hotel. They shared their first look on the 40th floor of the East at Sugar before we head to St. Patrick’s church in Miami Beach for their wedding ceremony.

Sometimes on a wedding day keeping an eye on the flower girl can lend to beautiful candid moments – Monica’s flower girl picked a tiny flower during our bridal party portraits and presented it as gift to Monica. It was an adorable moment & one of my favorite images from their wedding day.

Thank you to Monica & Jose for embracing every moment, being present with each other – your wedding day was a reflection of your grace and style.
