They read vows written by Aracelis, of Tres Chic Boutique, on those wonderful bride and groom vow cards she made for the occasion. Their outdoor dinner table was lowered so they can enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere of drink and merriment. The dreamy moss runner and floral designs by Gerardo at Landy's Flowers created in vintage green glassware from Eclectica Miami add so much color and beauty. Daisies, the quintessential flower of the 60’s, adorned the centerpieces as well as the bride’s bouquet.

pop art details

There is also a classic pop art touch with all those diamond details. Can you see them? The stationery, cake, pillows, DIY backdrop and flower pots. The stationery joyfully announces that they have legally tied the knot and that "love made us do it". The lattice work design on the cake echoes the diamond theme and is perfectly coordinated with the stationery. And who can resist those tie-dyed macarons. Tres Chic Boutique is just full of surprises.

The vintage radiant orchid colored dress she wears for their "honeymoon picnic” placed in the setting created by Eclectica Miami makes us nostalgic for the style and spirit of the 60's era. Daniel, our handsome groom, sings Amber a love song for their special day and then they sit and listen to music played on the record player provided by Spin Alley Store. Oscar at Spin Alley has a diverse assortment of record players from various eras which he restores to brand new working condition with his own hands. It’s his passion.

Our bride Amber (perfectly played by Lizbeth Catin) wore a homemade wedding dress borrowed from the real life bride who made it herself and wore it on her wedding day back in the 60’s. True story of the dress: Dress was made by the bride herself (Jane Quetel) from a Vogue pattern. Her grandmother attached all of the buttons down the back and created the button loops by hand the night before Jane's courthouse wedding which took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on September 5, 1964. Leslibeth at Starlit Designs was the makeup artist and gave our bride that lovely understated beehive hairdo so reminiscent of the 60's
