Another great job as Miami Wedding Photographer, beautiful Colonnade Hotel Coral Gables Wedding!
It was a gorgeous Saturday in Florida; I would say much warmer than we would like to have. But still awesome! We started around noon with Christine and her bridesmaids getting ready. Ohhh, I live in the bridal suite in Hotel Colonnade. Definitely one of the coolest in Miami. Very spacious with tall windows. The hotel went thru major renovations, but the spirit of this room was kept.
The Guys were getting ready in Playroom, which is a very cool new space in the hotel. There was my 2nd photographer, Rebecca, with them. After everyone was ready, we went to do a First Look. First, we captured card reading and gift exchange, and right after the first look at an awesome place right outside the hotel. I’m so happy I convinced my couple; we got great pictures!
The ceremony was in gorgeous and one of the most historical churches in Miami, Plymouth Congregational Church in Coral Gables, just about 15 minutes drive from the hotel. This church celebrates this year’s 100th anniversary of its sanctuary. Family portraits, a beautiful ceremony, and couple of shots outside the church and quick back to the AC of the hotel.
The reception was in the main space with an old fountain. Gorgeous setup and beautiful people. Christine is Lebanese, so the wedding was in Arabic tone. As a part of the program was an original belly dancer who performed also with fire. After all, the main traditions like first dances, cake cutting, or bouquet tossing started an awesome party. I still was able to steal Christine and Brandon for couple of night shots outside of the hotel on the street. Miracle Mile is really cool for that. And our last shot after 12 hours was the newlyweds jumping from the fountain. Very symbolic of a jump into their life together as a wife and husband already.
