Cara & Brad’s Miami Beach Destination Wedding at the Palms Hotel

Posted on July 23, 2009


As a Miami wedding photographer, I recently had the pleasure of photographing Cara and Brad’s picture perfect wedding at the Palms in Miami Beach. This was a destination wedding for both Cara and Brad who live in Pennsylvania, as well as for most of their guests. Cara did an amazing job planning her destination wedding in Miami Beach – she was really on top of things! She selected the Palms Hotel because she found it to be the perfect size for an intimate, yet elegant wedding. She also wanted an outdoor ceremony, but not on a beach – so the gorgeous gazebo at the Palms was just the right spot!


Being based in South Florida, I see many different types of destination weddings. Cara and Brad’s wedding was small and every detail was done to perfection. Cara’s dreamy gown was by Amsale and the floral arrangements were created by Petunia Flowers. As she said, Cara’s wedding “theme” was that everything was personalized. There were initials on the cake, monograms on the programs, personalized cocktail napkins and little boxes for the escort card that held their favorite candy inside. The dominant color of this wedding was pink, and Petunia masterfully wove this color throughout their arrangements and bouquets.

The bride and groom were gorgeous, as was the entire wedding. I would like to thank Cara and Brad for being so much fun to photograph on their wedding day! You’ll see from the photos posted here just how amazing a Miami Beach wedding can be.
As for the Palms Hotel – it is really one of the loveliest venues in Miami Beach. The hotel’s main theme is that it is “inspired by nature”, offering a new Aveda concept spa and a signature “natural gourmet” restaurant called Essensia. Having a destination wedding at the Palms Hotel & Spa is sure to rejuvenate and relax all who attend. From the pristine Miami Beach waters to the tranquility of the Palms itself, the bride and groom and guests alike can soak in the sun and lounge away the day to their heart’s content!

When you need a break from the peaceful nature of the Palms, there are always South Beach hotspots to hit and nightlife that will more than make up for all the relaxing during the day! Dance and party the night away or eat at a chic Miami restaurant with all the other beautiful people. You know you will be returning to the magnificent Palms Hotel for an escape unlike no other. As a Florida wedding photographer, I can safely say that the Palms is truly a wonderful place to work.

Wedding Photo Shoot at the new W-Fort Lauderdale.

Posted on July 6, 2009

WOW – is for the new W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale! We recently did a photo shoot at the brand new W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale in conjunction with Boca Raton Bridal. We selected the W Hotel for this shoot because of its ultra modern and totally cool style. Jan and Jack from Boca Raton Bridal brought several stylish gowns for us to photograph their model (Ashley) in. There were so many fabulous spaces and backgrounds at the W Hotel that we didn’t even know where to begin! It was really hard to narrow down just where we were going to shoot. As a South Florida wedding photographer, I must say that if you haven’t been to the new W Hotel Fort Lauderdale, you should definitely check it out. There is really no place like it around. The sleek décor and chic ambiance are truly one of a kind. One of the hotel’s most unusual highlights is it Plexiglas pool – totally cool and definitely unique!



For this South Florida wedding photographer, the opportunity to shoot wedding photos at the W Hotel was a great one. I could tell, just from this shoot, what a magnificent place the W Fort Lauderdale is for a wedding. There are walls of waterfalls, glistening lights, windows galore and let’s not forget – the Plexiglas pool! I am very much looking forward to the opportunity to photograph my first full wedding here – I can already envision all of the incredible shots I’ll be able to get.

We would like to thank Jan and Jack of Boca Raton Bridal as well as Monica Burgos of the W Fort Lauderdale for all their assistance and cooperation with this shoot.

I hope you enjoy the small selection of photos posted here from the W Fort Lauderdale/Boca Raton Bridal photo shoot.
