Set in the heat and hype of South Beach, the Sagamore Hotel is a boutique hotel hotspot centered around art and nightlife. The perfect venue for our Minted bride & groom who are LA dwellers, the Sagamore in Miami was the best way to get a destination wedding, domestically, when travel restrictions are high due to Covid. The couple dreamed of a beach wedding that was incorporated the effortless cool of the beach mixed with a understated glam vibe of LA. Although outdoor in Miami's August month is a recipe for disaster, this wedding was anything but. With plenty of AC fans to keep everyone comfortable, the permanent structural tent at the venue lent to the indoor outdoor esthetic. Protection from possible rain (mother nature was on our side), and the heat to wilt our flowers (our florist rocked) I decorated the tent with mix and match, yet complimenting centerpieces. Flip gold and ivory sequin linens for family and friend tables down the middle of the tent, were adorned with tall gold vases and tropical elephant leaves and orchids by the amazing Design with Art florals. Surrounding guests tables dressed in gold flecked ivory linen got a mix of modern candelabras, elongated low hydrangeas and rows of singular romantic roses. To preset all the white and gold, the bride requested touches of coral to her chuppah, which was acrylic to refrain from blocking any breathtaking beach and sunset views. The look was like floating florals in an ocean sky, with flanking palm trees to remind everyone that we were definitely in paradise.

Whilst the humidity carried on throughout the night, it did not hold back the guests partying on the dance floor. With DJ David Edry leading the way, it was a music high on another level. And as a refreshing surprise, Food Art catering handed out local tropical flavored sorbets as a preface to the spectacular dessert display.

And just as everyone thought the nights surprises were over, the wedding party emerged decked in traditional Moroccan jewel toned and encrusted garb to the sound of drumming and middle eastern music to welcome the bride and groom to their Henna. The Henna, a tradition at most middle eastern weddings, includes a Moroccan tent with rugs, couches, lanterns and gold of course, where the families exchange gifts and apply henna paste to their palms for good luck.

At the end of the night, destination wedding had more meaning than a quick trip to Miami. It was a beautiful night for a Minted beautiful bride and groom.
