Tie The Knot With: Christina & Diego!

Tie The Knot With: Christina & Diego!

The word “magical” and weddings go hand in hand, but every now and then you meet a couple like Christina and Diego that personify magic and spread their contagious glowing energy to every person they come in contact with. The AJW team was moved by the couple’s creative and imaginative ideas and together we created a Mid Summer Night’s Dream inspired event exceeding any modern day Shakespearean lovers’ expectations.

The First act was set on Vizcaya Museum and Garden’s Lower East Terrace.  Friends and family gathered around the joyous couple as they gazed passionately into each other’s eyes professing their love to one another. The picturesque Miami skyline and Vizcaya’s historical barge provided the perfect backdrop for the couples organic, intimate ceremony!  As guests waited for Ceremony, they were treated to Passion Fruit Margaritas with Ginger Popsicles inspired by Diego & Christina’s two favorite cocktails.

Creative Partners:  Ryan Joseph Photography, Voila Cinematic, CTO Artists/World Entertainment Productions & High Voltage

Post ceremony Diego surprised his blushing bride with a gift. To her amazement, enclosed in a wooden box was a vintage 3L bottle of wine engraved with the couple’s names and wedding date.  Diego gave a warm heart-felt speech about the intentions of his gift…he and his bride would nail the wine box shut and would not open it until their 5th Year wedding anniversary!  Diego then invited guests to bring their Polaroid’s, notes and trinkets and place them into the wine box as well.  Where did they get these photos?  Unbeknownst to the Bride, the AJW Wedding Team was having fun with guests taking their Polaroid’s pictures for the post ceremony surprise!

The Mid summers night theme continued onto the reception on the Casino Mound where guests danced under the loving embrace of the Live Oaks and enjoyed tunes from superstar live band High Voltage, covering everything from Animal House Classics to contemporary party songs!  Guests leisurely enjoyed various signature food station by Joy Wallace and were treated to some home made pies from family recipes provided by the Bride herself!
