This oceanfront Miami wedding featured the perfect blend of modern and romantic. There was the aisle lined with palm trees and delicate pink and ivory florals and a vintage car to transport the bride to the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne for her wedding.

Bridal Preparations

Bride Wendy’s preparing for her wedding day with her bridesmaids at home. I loved photographing this confetti moment!

That first moment when a bride’s Dad sees her in her wedding dress for the first time! A real pleasure to photograph heartfelt moments like this!

The First Look

One of the best parts of a wedding day is the first look, not just with the groom but the bridesmaids as well.

To make sure Wendys got to have a moment with her bridesmaids, we used the vintage Rolls Royce they rented to hide the bride and then had her bridesmaids waiting on the other side as the driver pulled away.

Loved their reactions to Wendys stunning wedding gown!

As Wendys walked down the aisle with her dad everyone was move to tears, the groom and his brother could not hold back their emotions – these are candid emotional moments I look for when photographing a wedding
