We just love it when a couple knows who they are and what they want! It sure makes their wedding celebration a day of all the things the couple is crazy about. For Felicia and Stefan it was a tropical atmosphere, great music, romantic candle lighting, their shared love of themed events, their families, and each other. Felicia chose the color palette of champagne and gold with pops of lavender, her favorite color since childhood. With added touches of sparkle in the table numbers, frames, gorgeous candle lighting everywhere, her gold heels, romantic marketing lighting throughout the tent, metallic vases and a fabulous sparkler send-off, this event at Grand Tradition Estate & Gardens captured by Brett Charles Rose Photo, was magical!
Incorporating their siblings talents was a must. Stefan's brother, a very thoughtful and profound speaker, the best man, gave the most heartfelt speech. One of the Bride's brothers, Phillip, whose charisma can capture an audience, married them and her youngest brother, a celebrated Broadway performer, serenaded them during the ceremony with "Stay With You" by John Legend and also sang as they danced to their first song as husband and wife.
Since the Groom is, in the Bride's words "an obnoxiously huge University of Miami fan", football is a huge part of their relationship. So to surprise him in a fun way and show some real team spirit, the Bride wore a garter proving her love for his team.
