You Only Turn 40 Once!

After doing multiple kids’ parties and corporate events for this client it was time to change gears and plan a celebration for the “man of the family”.  His wife knew she wanted it to be all about PARTY and we hit the ground running.  Hyde Kitchen + Bar Hallandale was the perfect location and we kept the crowd on their toes throughout the night with continuous entertainment and incredible sounds by Michael Sarysz.  He truly never disappoints.

You might only turn 40 once but these pictures by Jessica Kassin will always keep the memories alive.

This Happy Couple Chose Wynwood As Their Backdrop

I loved everything about this wedding!  To start off Marissa and Matt are one of a kind. They had a vision, they wanted different and they weren’t afraid of color. Sometimes when you choose “out of the box” there are challenges. When you have an incredible team in place you can get through anything even with a 3am install start.  So many thank yous go out to everyone involved in this spectacular wedding ceremony and festivities!

Vanessa & Andrew Light Up the Biltmore

When clients become friends it is a special connection and Vanessa fits that bill.  Both families were so much fun to be around for this special destination wedding at the gorgeous Biltmore Hotel.  This couple truly lit up the night from start to finish and utilized many different venue spaces throughout the event to keep everyone moving and entertained.  From an outdoor ceremony overlooking the golf course to a patio cocktail hour to dinner and dancing in the Granada Ballroom and an after party in Danielson an amazing time was had by all.

See for yourself with these amazing photos by Maloman Studios.

Valerie + Richard @ Villa Woodbine

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!

Wynwood Fun Styled Shoot

Doing a styled shoot is always so much fun especially when you have an amazing team to work with.  Robert Evans, celebrity photographer, came to Miami for two different shoots and I had the honor of designing and producing them.

Enjoy part one showcasing the Wynwood Art District in Miami.  The murals in Wynwood are constantly changing and they become the canvases for amazing street artists from around the world.

Stay on the look out for part 2 showcasing the beautiful Spanish Monastery.

Celebrating February Love with Brittany & Ross

Happy 2nd Anniversary Brittany and Ross!  Flashback Friday is in full force here with this amazing couple and unbelievable wedding!  The second daughter of this incredible family getting married required the family’s Golden Beach oceanfront abode to be transformed into a magical, breathtaking venue for this couple to walk down the aisle and for so many family members and friends to party the night away.

It was such an honor coordinating this event with many of the top vendors in this industry.  It was a multiple day install with long hours but everyone did a fabulous job.  Always a thank you to the entire team!

Enjoy these amazing photos by Haring Photography- Thank you Priscilla and Otto

Classic Winnie the Pooh Came to Life for Zoey’s First Birthday

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.
