Custom Wedding Planning Package Created For Their Miami Inspired Wedding

Although we have created wedding planning packages for our couples, not every wedding planning process is the same! For this reason, we have created custom wedding planning packages for our clients. After speaking with CC and Max and understanding their needs, our team soon decided that a custom package would be best for them.

For CC & Maxi, Partial Planning Package with a venue search and catering tasting add-on meeting for something a little more hands-on. The pairing of a traditional packaged coupled with a more hands-on experience created a uniquely designed package for their needs.

Then, we began designing a unique vision board that combined elements of two things this couple loves the most; the beach, Miami Heat, and Miami flair! All in all, this vision board reflected their vision displaying vibrant colors and tropical details.

Ceremony and Reception Details for a Summer Wedding at the Howey Mansion

With the design of the vision board complete, it was then time to implement the inspiration! Without delay, we worked closely with Trove Rentals to complete the tables with colored mismatch goblets to add a tropical flair to the tables. In the meantime, we also partnered with Pixies and Petals to create the floral arrangements of large palms and tropical blooms. 

Of course, Miami is known for its nightlife! For this reason, Press Play Entertainment had everyone dancing and celebrating with the help of great lighting and musical elements. Everyone was dancing the night away like they were on vacation at South Beach.

“CC and Max’s wedding was such a fun wedding to work on! This couple knew how to throw the party of a lifetime for their friends and family!” Says Rae Grijalva, Owner of Taylor Rae Events (and CC’s Bridesmaid!)

Additional Surprise Elements from their Summer Wedding 

In addition, our couples love to sprinkle in a few surprises on their wedding day! First, the bride did a quick change! CC did a quick change while her guests were dancing and celebrating. She then stepped out of her classic ball gown and into a sparkly second dress. Likewise, for many couples, reception attire has become increasingly more popular for brides and even grooms! 

In addition, a second surprise was found in the basement cellar of The Howey Mansion. Built in 1925, the mansion also shows signs that its original intent of use during the prohibition era. In the same fashion as prohibition, guests utilized this historical room as a speakeasy-style sip and toast celebration. So, it only made sense that we transformed the basement into a one-of-a-kind wine tasting experience for guests.

Altogether, CC and Max’s Miami summer-inspired wedding was one for the books! Congratulations, CC and Max! We loved being a part of your wedding day!
