National Hotel Miami Florida wedding shoot. Miami, Florida, is synonymous with loud color and a fearless zest for life. This styled shoot at the National Hotel explores that fun flavor but does so from a vintage-mod perspective that turns this style into a truly timeless wedding look. The invitation suite is the first indication that the style for this wedding is definitely inspired by Miami. A pink envelope with yellow checkerboard inner flap, a blue reply card, and an invitation that features all those colors is appropriate for this event.
The flowers in this shoot weren't short on color, either. Golden crespedia, green succulents, and bright pink peonies are just a few of the blooms that make an audacious appearance.
The bride wears a classic wedding gown that is perfect for the venue. It features a high embellished neckline, a tied waistband, and a tiered skirt that hugs close to her figure. The back of her gown also features a classic row of satin buttons.
Her hair is styled in a low updo with volume at the crown.
A bridesmaid wears a lace ivory dress with a satin ribbon waistband. The light color of the dress makes the colors of the bouquet pop even more. She sports fingerwaves in her hair, channeling a glamorous take on vintage hairstyle.
Poolside the groom wears a navy blue suit with a light blue tie and brown shoes. He wears modern glasses that make a statement and also accessorizes with a tie clip, boutonniere, white pocket square, and classic watch.
Together, the couple make a striking pair, exuding both modern notes and classic details. The inclusion of the hotel's pool with palm trees on each side is a clever way to elegantly tie in the well-known essence of Miami.
The couple makes their way around the pool to a reception table.
Styled with mod wooden furniture, the tablescape features color and clean lines with a glimpse of radiance. Place settings include white plates, light blue flatware, and clear glasses.
Various floral arrangements line the center of the table.
White vases of all shapes and sizes hold red poppies, yellow and dark red roses, eucalyptus, succulents, and dark red mums, just to name a few.
Set on a vintage mod-inspired buffet, a square cake with two tiers of different heights is adorned with flowers in various shades of red. Alongside the confection is an assortment of plants housed in milk glass.
And you can't have a shoot in Florida without even a brief glimpse of the beach. The couple stands on the sand in their gorgeous wears and embrace for one final shot, proving that their looks translate anywhere.
The multifaceted approach to style in this shoot is intriguing. The combination of the hot Miami atmosphere, the cool hotel venue, and the vintage mod decor proved to be a smart and clever spin on the classic Florida wedding concept we're used to seeing.
