An Art Deco Romance at The Raleigh Hotel

Downloads-600x375

Dalylah and Ben both hail from Dallas Texas but when deciding on their wedding location, they both had fallen in love with The Raleigh Hotel in Miami. We were stoked to come on board and help design their special day. We scoured South Beach to find the best suited vendors to pull off a southern influenced Miami wedding at the very art deco influenced hotel. The patterns were heavy and wild, paired with soft and romantic floral. It was a great combo! The couple were full of fun and just super laid back. I loved integrating a southern appeal with the gold longhorn skull and southern style messy cakes into the Miami setting.

The couple shipped succulents to Florida which were prepared by designer to be given as favors to guests. Other details also included a custom cigar bar for groom and a map guestbook that highlights where they met, Dallas, where they married, Miami, and where they will move to start their life, Chicago. The weather was lovely all day and then it began to rain shortly before the beginning of the ceremony. We made some last minute changes and brought everyone under some beautiful white tenting. The rain didn't let up until dinner was completed. Almost to the minute the rain stopped, the music began and everyone danced the night away. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!
