AS SEEN ON BRIDES
Sydney and Daniel transformed Sydney’s parents’ backyard into an upscale and elegant event with vintage and tropical touches that would accommodate 200 guests in Miami Sydney shared with Brides, “They settled on a neutral color palette and let the breathtaking scenery guide their aesthetic. Mostly, we wanted to keep the wedding as simple and elegant as possible.
One of the most special parts of the wedding for Sydney was having her grandparents attend. “My grandmother has been sick, and it’s been hard for her to walk,” the bride discloses. “She told me she prayed so much that morning that it gave her the strength to walk.” Thanks to Adriana Rivera, the couple’s wedding photographer, Sydney will always have a keepsake that preserves those meaningful moments. “I appreciated how [Adriana] really listened and observed, capturing my grandparents’ emotions and presence throughout the day,” Sydney remarks. “You can tell she knew how much they meant to me.
For her wedding look, Sydney selected an off-the-shoulder trumpet gown with dramatic balloon sleeves and a long train from Monique Lhuillier. “I wanted something romantic with a little bit of structure,” the bride illustrates. An all-white bouquet of orchids gave her getup a contemporary flair.”
“I am deeply grateful for how she really listened and observed what was most important to me, capturing my grandparents’ emotions and presence throughout the day. You can tell she knew how much they meant to me. As a result, I now have the most beautiful photographs of with grandparents that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”
