Wedding Wednesdays – No Flurries in Florida!

30 Dec

Forget this weather and escape to one of our destination weddings at the Westin Diplomat Resort in Florida this past summer.  This couple came to us wanting a “Platinum Wedding” and we made sure they got just that!  Although it was a destination wedding, this couple sacrificed on nothing and had nearly 400 guests fly in for the events.

The first request of this couple was to make sure the groom rode in on a grand elephant…

The bride wanted a custom made dholi to carry her down the aisle…

The forecast called for 100% showers but the couple chose destination just so they could have an outdoor wedding.  Luckily the weather gods cut us a break and gave perfect weather (think “eye of the storm”) just for the ceremony before a downpour!

The couple wanted a one of a kind entrance for their first time introduced as husband and wife.  We had a custom made video playing for the audience done by Pacific Pictures where the bride and groom made a mini-movie with the end of the movie having the couple being chased by the police on a motorcycle.  As the audience watched the chase scene, out through the back and onto the dance floor the couple rode in on the same motorcycle from the movie!  Gasps from the audience ensued…

Not that the motorcycle wasn’t enough, the couple got off and entered into a full fledged dance routine with a waterfall of fireworks going on behind them….

To even entertain the guests further, we brought in intense fire dancers from Pyrofusion to perform during the dinner….

Everything was done platinum style, including the unique decor and even their cake which was custom made and featured the cutest baby elephant wedding topper ever…

It was such an eventful wedding and we didn’t even tell you yet about the sangeet and cocktail hour which had live latino musicians and flamenco dancers dancing  on the buffet tables!  Even with all the pizzaz, nothing stole the spotlight from how happy the couple was…

I want to take a minute out to specially thank Shira Weinberger for the amazing photos. http://www.ShiraWeinberger.com
