A Vintage Inspired Miami Wedding

Last night I was lucky enough to watch 2 of my good friends get married at the lovely Deering Estate in South Miami. I just had to share a few of the photos I took for those brides out there going for a 20's feel. The bride, Hillary, arrived to the ceremony in a vintage Rolls Royce looking uber sexy in a sheath dress with a plunging neckline. The gown had an ornate cream colored beaded lace overlay. She went with a simple ivory birdcage veil with a silk gardenia and small pearl brooch attached. Little hints of sparkle were everywhere, from her jewelry and his cuff links, to the strands of crystals dripping off of the centerpieces. There were also whimsical details such as polka dot sheer chocolate table overlays, and a cotton candy stand. They had chosen our "Lily" stationery line which complimented the vintage look of the day. The couple blended their Jewish-Cuban, Catholic-mid-western roots in a fun, elegant, "Gatsby-esque" way which everyone is sure to be raving about for a long time to come. Congrats Hillary & Eddie! I can't wait to see the pro photos!

Hi Rebecca! I'm so happy to see you're started a White Aisle blog! I loved this post because of the great pictures and the beautiful wedding, but also because I'm biased towards the Lily line. I used that for my wedding! But of course, I love all your designs. Welcome to the wedding blog world!

Wow!! Nice photos!! Good place too!! hat w By the way, have you heard of MiNeeds.com? It really simplifies finding affordable wedding service providers. I used it to find them for my daughter's wedding. Essentially, after I described what I needed on this site, I received several competitive bids from local wedding service providers. I liked the fact that I didn’t have to call around and negotiate with each, and that they actually came to me.

These pictures are so beautiful - the bride looks stunning! I am getting married in December and currently on the hunt for a birdcage veil. This is the most beautiful one I have seen - do you know where the bride got it?
