The newlywed Lindens’ … oh how we love them! Meet Todd and Sabrina. They are foodies, funny, fashionable, in love and most importantly, great people. We were honored to plan their wedding at Villa 221 in Miami. True to their personalities and guest experience, they had a showstopper wedding that was a party from beginning to end.
An early evening ceremony meant ambient lighting everywhere. Candles, up lights, and shadow lighting created an intimate deck at Villa 221. Comfortable chairs in ivory and silver complimented the acrylic chuppah from Ines Naftali Floral and Event Design. The floating candles and buds were stunning! Sabrina walked down the aisle to acoustic guitar player and singer Diego Val. Beautiful. The ceremony area was quickly transformed into “His” and “Hers” lounged while guests mingled inside during cocktail hour.
Enter Lounges. His lounge had white couches, a gentleman’s bar with scotch and tequila – complete with personalized shot glasses that Salute! (they were engaged in Florence, Italy), a cookies and milk station (true to the groom’s sweet tooth), and GoodFella’s projected on the wall. Her lounge hosted more white couches, a signature mojito bar, an acrylic dessert station (more to come on this), and Audrey Hepburn’s Sabrina projected on the wall. The acrylic dessert table was lit up underneath and was home to cake pops in 3 flavors, macaroons in 2 flavors, mini cupcakes in 3 flavors, red velvet donuts, a red velvet wedding cake with ruffled icing (LOVE!), and the groom’s cake – a globe with pins on the cities they have visited together. Sugarsweet Dream Cakes Company truly outdid themselves.
To allow for more “party” time, Sabrina and Todd opted for open food stations from Aaron’s Catering instead of a designated time for dinner. The space was divided into two seating areas: to the left, a row of white royal tables adorned with sweet and modern touches of purple flowers; to the right, a row of acrylic cocktail tables with floating flowers. Dancing under a crystal chandelier in the midst of two large tree’s gave a magical feel to the evening. The main bar was book ended with high back white couches allowing guests to get a drink, grab a seat and take in the evening to the sounds of the DJ.
Definitely one for the books. If you love the pictures from Daniel LaTeulade Photography, the stay tuned for the video from LaFrance Films!
