Christina found me through her best friend whose wedding I happened to be shooting a month after hers, and told me her wedding would be on New Years Eve! I immediately loved her vision for a Miami Beach wedding that was elegant and classy, and not like the cheesy beach photos you have probably seen before. As a person who has shot a lot of beach weddings, I knew where she was coming from!
Due to some crazy circumstances of a hurricane hitting Florida a few months before her wedding, Christina’s original venue that she had her heart set on fell through after incurring damage from the hurricane. So she had no choice but to find a new venue on short notice, and thankfully the Loews Hotel down the street happened to be available!
The Loews ended up totally fitting the look she was going for, and worked out perfectly. And although Miami can have quite unpredictable weather, they were blessed with one of the best weather days possible!
Shooting a wedding on New Years Eve is something I’ve never done, but I must say that they created such a fun atmosphere and it was an amazing place to ring in the New Year. So to the brides who are considering a NYE wedding – go for it!
