Listen to your Grandmother, she probably knows a thing or two about love.

Loews Miami Beach Hotel Wedding

“Listen to your grandmother” is exactly what Matthew did when he attended a Young Jewish Professional group in Charleston, South Carolina.  She encouraged him to attend at least three meetings. The first meeting was exactly why he didn’t attend these get togethers. But it was at the second meeting that he met Mindy. Here I am happy to share with you the many incredible moments from their wedding day.

I encourage my couples to see each other before the ceremony for formals. You’re both excited, make up looks great and you won’t miss cocktails! We created a moment when Matthew approached Mindy, a moment to savor and enjoy quietly.

The lobby of the Loews Miami Beach Hotel has this beautiful salt water tank that makes for an incredible setting for photographing Mindy and Matt.

Capturing special moments during a wedding is what it’s all about for me. This is an especially an amazing one! During the ceremony, Mindy takes a wonderful glance at her parents. I get so excited seeing this photograph and the love and happiness that just shines from Mindy’s beautiful gaze.

Right after the ceremony is a favorite time for me. Parents and the wedding party always  greet the happy couple with so much enthusiasm.  A kiss from Matthew’s sister and the “I gotta get a look at this ring” from one of Mindy’s bridesmaids.

This is a great moment during the horah when both dads are raised in the chairs. It’s heartwarming to see both dads having such a great time together. As a recent father of a groom, I can attest that this day is an incredible experience for the parents. ( My son was recently married in November)

Mindy shared a secret with me, “Matthew would say the best part about wedding planning was trying all of the food, including desserts, on our tasting day”. The desserts as displayed in the images above were amazingly sweet and yummy!

“From our “first look” at each other to a surprise burst of fireworks that erupted from the floral centerpieces as we were announced into the reception as Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Pava, it truly was a day filled with so many memories and special moments. We were so thrilled with every detail of our wedding and really enjoyed working with you!” – Mindy

So listen to your grandmother and have a great weekend!
