This classic garden themed wedding at The Epic Hotel in downtown Miami truly represented the love that Anna and Phil share with their friends and family.
Anna choose to get ready at her parents’ home in Coral Gables, surrounded by her bridal party. One of the benefits of getting ready at a home instead of a hotel is the level of personal detail that the pictures can capture. We even had the chance to take photos outdoors by the pool using some of the fun flamingo props from the Welcome Party they hosted the night before! Anna looked so happy to be surrounded by her family and friends as she got ready for her special day.
One of my favorite moments was the first time Anna walked down the staircase towards her father. The joy on his face was so beautiful! Nothing beats the love a father has for his little girl. After a few quiet moments with her dad, Anna did a reveal with her bridal party before heading to the church.
The ceremony was held at the stunning St. Hugh’s Catholic Church. The soaring ceilings and beautiful stained glass windows make for an impressive ceremony backdrop. After they were pronounced man and wife, Anna and Phil looked positively joyful. Their smiles were both a mile wide. After the ceremony was complete, we took a few moments on the river boardwalk next to the Epic for some bridal party photos. I also made sure to steal a few moments on the bridge with the newlyweds right as the sun was setting over downtown Miami.
I knew from our first meeting a year before their wedding that Anna and Phil’s wedding was going to be an amazing party. I was not wrong, it was a night to remember. From the way Anna and Phil make each other smile, to the amazing energy of their families, and the non-stop party atmosphere… the celebration did not stop. Anna’s mom even surprised her and her new husband with an amazing hora loca party, complete with stilt walkers, dancers and aconfetti canon! I love the surprise and excitement on Anna’s face when the confetti cannon’s exploded!
I am so honored that Anna and Phil’s wedding was recently featured on the blog, Every Last Detail.
Anna and Phil, I loved being the wedding photographer to capture your elegant Miami destination wedding. Congratulations to you both!
