Alexis & Joey!

A little over one year ago, when we first met Alexis & Joey, we had no idea how huge their fairytale wedding would turn out to be!  The couple was excited to have a destination wedding in sunny Florida, a popular getaway for many northeastern residents.  It is impossible to resist being taken over by Alexis’ bubbly personality and Joey’s down to earth character, probably the main reason we’ve loved them so much since our first meeting.  Their selection of Vizcaya Museum & Gardens as their venue provided us with a beautiful backdrop to make their Old Hollywood theme a reality.   Though the rain was a factor (we really need to start paying off our weathermen…)  it wasn’t a problem!  While the sky opened up and gave the gardens a good cleaning, guests posed for photos (courtesy of photographer extraordinaire Roy Llera!) within the mansion.  Turns out, it was well worth the wait.  The perfect weather, complete with a double rainbow, followed by a light breeze sunset and then full moon, added just the right amount of romance to this Old Hollywood fairytale.

Kudos to Roy Llera for allowing us to share these breathtaking photos with you, he is a fantastic photographer and a true “Joy” to work with!  Get a sneak peek behind his camera lens here!

Best wishes to Alexis & Joey as they begin their lives together as husband & wife!
