This Modern, Monochromatic Jewish Wedding Got the Party Started with a Statement Dance Floor Installation

In 2014, Danyel began working at the same office building as Adam, and while Adam was visiting his uncle one day, Danyel caught his eye. Adam struck up a conversation with Danyel, and over the next two years, Danyel and Adam continued to have great “office” conversations while Adam would "visit" his uncle. A lunch invitation one day turned into a first date, which led to 5 years of being together, laughing, loving, and traveling, until Adam decided to propose to Danyel in St. Lucia on her 30th Birthday.

For their wedding day, Adam and Danyel wanted something truly unique that really reflected them as a couple. Danyel was heavily involved in the planning process, personally selecting and sourcing the majority of the décor items to ensure her vision came off without a hitch. Their inspiration was "Miami meets The Hamptons," with a dash of "Bali Bungalow" thrown in. Keeping the color palette monochromatic in all whites made the resulting look modern, yet elegant for their intimate evening with their closest friends and family.

For her wedding day, Danyel wore a chic v-neck silk gown by Savin London with a floral print cowl back for added drama. After their garden ceremony, guests moved into the tented reception. The centerpiece of the design was the floral and rattan light installation hanging over the dance floor. The centerpieces continued the white-on-white theme, with a mix of fresh and dried florals to complete the look.

Throughout the process of planning her wedding, Danyel learned a few things: Any vision is possible with enough determination and a little compromise. Just because people do not see or understand your vision does not mean it is impossible. Stay determined and dedicated to achieving whatever it is the two of you want for your wedding day. If you get no other time, make sure to take a private moment after the ceremony to enjoy being husband and wife for the first time. And don't forget to eat! Snack on hors d'oeuvres, and make a point to eat dinner and hydrate. Danyel and Adam even had hydration IV's on the morning of the wedding so they felt their best throughout the entire day.
