A rainy day at Villa Woodbine didn’t dampen the spirits of this fun-lovin couple. Every interaction throughout the planning process involved so many laughs and it is not often that a groom is so involved in the process. It was AWESOME!
Stacey Ambrosio captured every detail from getting ready at the Mayfair Hotel till the end of the night shenanigans at Villa Woodbine. Michelle and the Bill Hansen team at the Villa were on point from start to finish. Bitton Events kept everyone entertained. Art of Hair by Claudia and Deco Drive Limos helped get everyone ready and to the Villa for the main event. Blooming Flowers of Key Biscayne enhanced the beautiful venue with flowers to match the bride’s and groom’s taste. To represent the Libutti Italian tradition, each guest left with olive oil as a parting gift.
With a hashtag of #shakeyourlibutti you know a good time was had by all!
This was event number 5 I have had the honor of working on for the Brody family and working with my close friend, Michelle Brody, always means a good time, lots of quality time together and a stunning event. Karen and Michael’s wedding was an amazing stepping stone in their fairy tale life together. Can’t wait to be part of the next Brody extravaganza!
This wedding had an outstanding line up of vendors. We had a very short turnaround/setup time and a huge thank you goes out to all that made this event happen. The pictures taken by Emily Harris Photography speak for themselves.

I will never forget meeting Asta and Joe for the first time at the Setai. Their dynamics at that meeting let me know that if I was chosen to plan their spectacular event, it would be an awesome ride full of personality……and that it was!
Asta had a vision and we worked with a great group of vendors to bring it to life. Lots of customization, details and most importantly to them, making sure their friends had an amazing time. It was a destination wedding for most and South Beach was the place to be. Guests arrived and received gift bags filled with the general goodies but we wanted to make sure everyone also had some “fun in the sun” – beach bags, coconut cups, coconut water, rum, sarongs for the ladies and straw fedoras for the gentlemen, custom shot glasses, sunscreen and more.
Vizcaya was the place to showcase the union of this duo. Breathtaking views for a breathtaking couple with no detail left untouched. A custom door made in Alabama (coincidentally where Asta grew up) to hold family pictures, cocktail napkins with sayings, custom props in the photo booth, “cigarette” girls and guys handing out everything from mints, to custom sunglasses and test tube shots.
There was no shortage of spectacular entertainment – Libido got everyone on the dance floor throughout the night and then DJ Blaze took over with the incredible electric violinist brought in from New York, Sarah Charness.
The images for this one speak for themselves. Thank you PS Photography!

Season is slowing down and I have so many amazing event pictures to share with you. I have a lot of catching up to do. To start, here are the amazing images from Yadi and Greg’s wedding at the Rusty Pelican. The first time I met Yadi was on a trip she had booked to Miami for a hair & makeup trial. I knew right then and there I was going to have a lot of fun working with her! She is amazing and through the process of planning I learned more about Greg too and found out he isn’t too shabby either. We had to wait on some last minute decisions so Greg could be involved…..he was busy volunteering in Ghana until the week before the wedding. Yadi and Greg are surely a power couple!
Heather Funk does it again with her beautiful artistry of capturing this awesome wedding. Sit back and enjoy the beauty of this couple and their wedding.

Michal hails from Michigan and Menachem from Chicago…..both living in NY now. With a January wedding planned and an epic winter already in full swing, a South Florida Miami Beach wedding was a huge welcome for all the guests! The wedding was planned in 10 weeks but no detail was left untouched. We put together a stellar team to make this day special for Michal, Menachem and their families. The traditional, Jewish Orthodox wedding started with the groom’s Tisch and the bride’s Kabbalat Panim with much excitement leading up to the Bedekin. It is always amazing to see the bride and groom’s faces the first time they see each other after seven days. The Eden Roc’s Spa Garden was a beautiful site for the ceremony followed by cocktail hour in the Palm Terrace. Guests were then invited upstairs for dinner and the reception. The music was high intensity and everyone had a blast celebrating the bride and groom. Thank you Emily Harris Photography for capturing all aspects of this beautiful couple and the incredible day!
