When your wedding takes place in a tropical venue full of primates and parrots, you know you’re in for an unforgettable celebration! Add in a wedding party full of joyful friends and family, and it’s clear that Nancy and Uriel’s wedding in Miami Beach was seriously amazing! Check out their custom WeddingMix wedding trailer video to see all the lush Florida scenery, fun-filled hora dance, and Moroccan henna ceremony — all filmed by the bride and groom’s loved ones! It all started in 7th grade band class. We sat next to each other playing first string clarinet. Apparently, we were good friends. I say apparently, because although we have no recollections of each other from that time, we have yearbook notes to prove it. We later went to high school and graduated in the same class. And again we have very little recollection of each other despite having many friends in common.
Fast forward 25 years later, and here we are getting married in our hometown, Miami Beach, Florida. Our vintage inspired wedding was held at the popular Miami attraction, Jungle Island. With the luscious greenery, flamingos, parrots, waterfall backdrop, and bay views…we only needed small touches to make our wedding unforgettable.
But it was these small touches we were most proud of; birdcage centerpieces that doubled for lining our ceremony aisle, antique keys for escort cards pinned on a homemade lacy picture frame, homemade metal rose decorations as favors (handmade by my talented mom), antique tiny frames of pictures of our lost brothers and his dad, Even our attire was inspired by this timeless, vintage look. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
