Take a garden party—but make it tropical—add a historic villa-turned-museum, and finish off a beautiful couple. That’s what we’ve got in store for you today! These ingredients are the makings of the dreamy wedding day between Carlyle + Samir, a Miami couple who wed surrounded by pops of color, texture, and history. Here’s a look into the day’s inspiration from Carlyle:
We love nature and being outdoors, and when we saw the ceremony mound at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens (also featured in our Top 26 Coolest Places to Get Married) with the sweeping trees and Spanish moss, we instantly fell in love! From there, we worked with Adriana at The Creative’s Loft to create a glam garden party. The ceremony was very personal and all about us. Our officiant (Dr. Rev. Cynthia Capaccio) did an amazing job telling our story and engaging all our guests. There were times I felt like it was just the three of us, which made it feel very special. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
Flora + Fauna captured all the glam details—let’s have a look!
Papel & Co. designed a sweeping invitation for the day. And how cute is that patch?!
Classic Meets Tropical Bridal Fashion
Carlyle wore these cute tropical print heels by Badgley Mischka. So fun!

Isn’t this space just regal?!
SO gorgeous, these two!

And how about these bright bouquets from Ever After Floral Design? Loving all those bold colors!
The Ceremony Space
Married in Miami
There are just so many! Sharing our handwritten vows with each other (so many tears), our first dance, and dancing the night away with our favorite people.
Processional: All of You by John Legend
Recessional: Something Just Like This by Coldplay/The Chainsmokers
First Dance: I Wanna Love You by Bob Marley
Here Come the Newlyweds!
A Glam Garden Reception
Unearthed Vintage provided all the rentals for the day, offering a touch of modern glam to the historic space.
So, so beautiful! Loving the greenery and hanging lights mixed in the bold blooms.
A sweet gilded gold cake by Thierry Isambert was the perfect detail!
There are so many details that you think about in the last month, so our advice would be to get the little things out of the way EARLY. You don't necessarily need to wait! We also tried to hire vendors whose personalities we liked (along with their work/aesthetic) and who we thought we would enjoy spending time with. It made our actual wedding day SO much fun (specifically our photographers—we had NO idea how much time we would actually be spending with them and we had a blast). We're obsessed with all of them and I wish we didn't live so far away!
