There’s nothing like an autumn wedding South Florida style. This adorable couple from Manhattan were able to exchange vows on this gorgeous night in Miami alongside the Atlantic Ocean. A cool breeze accompanied by a clear sky at the Ritz~Carlton Bal Harbour made this evening even more spectacular. After the service, the guests moved poolside to enjoy cocktails under the moonlight. Later on, it was time to start the party, and that it was.
Rock With U had everyone on their feet from dancing a customary horah to a traditional Mezinka, and then later to singing all the popular tunes that we all know and love. The Mezinka (Mezinke) is a different type of circle dance to honor the parents who just married off their last child. This time the parents are seated in the center of the dance floor and the bride and groom present their parents a crown of flowers. The music starts out slow and then the tempo speeds up for this time-honored celebration. Rock With U had done this perfectly with its fusion type performance which included a saxophone and string instruments.
When they weren’t dancing, the bride and groom sat at their royal table with their wedding party while the guests surrounded them in this unique ballroom. However, everyone felt like royalty with the Ritz~Carlton’s attentive staff. The room was filled with blush and white flowers by J Morgan to match the bride’s classic style. The bride was certainly glowing in her off-white lace gown from the infamous Kleinfeld in New York City while the groom said, “YES!” to Louboutins (for himself). Fortunately, the talented Tony Gajate captured all these moments as did Senderey Video.
Fabulous destination venues always makes for a STYLED event.
Mazel Tov to Caroline & Joshua. Wishing you a very happily ever after!
