We kicked off our day in the lovely home of the bride's parents. Our bride, Genevieve got ready alongside her bridesmaids and her cute long-haired Dalmatian, Ozzy (who perfectly matched with the black and white theme of the wedding). Genevieve looked stunning in her wedding gown from Merlili Bridal Boutique. Our groom, Chuck, was getting ready over at the The Mondrian South Beach alongside his closest friends. After getting ready everyone made their way over to Vizcaya for the couple's first looks and wedding party photos. Our beautiful bride made her way down the steps of the casino garden mounds to find her soon-to-be husband waiting for her. It was such a special moment that our wonderful GTP associate team got to capture!
Their outdoor ceremony welcomed Genevieve and Chucks guests through Vizcaya Museum and Gardens splendid gardens and eventually made their way to the garden mounds with the monument as the background. The space was decorated with minimal elements like candles, rose pedals and a baby's breath arch letting the large oak trees and historic architecture speak for itself.
Following the ceremony, their reception took place over at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens's east terrace overlooking the Biscayne Bay and the Barge. The reception decor matched the ceremony's theme of candles, white roses and baby's breath. Before getting the party started our bride went to get changed into a short trendy reception dress and even had her new husband help chop her hair off for a fun fresh look! The opted for some editorial style direct flash photos in their reception look, then we got to watch the newlyweds dance the night away with all of their closest family and friends.
