I always love when my friend, Lauren, contacts me to discuss a party. She comes to me with an idea and it is my job to create a full vision and make it come to life. She loves being involved in the process, doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty and I love working with her to make it a reality. Zoey’s first birthday was a vision of blush, mint and gold with a Classic Winnie the Pooh vibe along with an activity filled atmosphere of bounce houses, dancing, ball pits, coloring, face painting, custom corn hole, balloons, photo opportunities and an amazing dessert display.
There were a lot of players to make up Zoey’s Birthday Party Team and a huge THANK YOU goes out to all! Special shout out to Emily Harris Photography for always capturing all of the details.

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!

I’ve been busy trying to catch up on blogging with six weddings that took place in January. Here is another winner!
I always love working at amazing and beautiful venues – The Biltmore in Coral Gables never disappoints! The property is gorgeous and the staff is stellar. Nicole and Rob chose amazing vendors to work with to help make their dreams of their special day come true. Petal Productions created stunning arrangements in all areas allowing Ambrosio Photography and Senderey Videography to capture the true elegance of the day and the couple. The music was phenomenal starting at the ceremony and cocktail hour with AA Musicians which led to a reception that Heatwave blew out of the park. The dance floor was packed all night.
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!
