This Vizcaya Museum & Gardens Wedding Was Anthropologie Meets Versace Come to Life

Nate and Bernie, both half-Italian, felt an instant connection to Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. With its majestic architecture and magical gardens overlooking Biscayne Bay, it made for the perfect fit for their special day. Vibrant florals, elegant decor, and stunning attire came together to create the most magical celebration of their lives, even though they were planning from 3,000 miles away. 

One of the wedding’s highlights was the venue itself. The breathtaking gardens provided the perfect backdrop for the couple’s sweet “I dos,” but that’s not all. The tented reception was equally stunning. It featured a colorful ceiling installation of blooms, a monogrammed dance floor, tables adorned with vibrant centerpieces, and elegant settings. The celebration continued as guests danced the night away, creating unforgettable memories.

Every detail of their celebration was meticulously planned, reflecting their authenticity and creating an extraordinary experience. The wedding theme was Anthropologie meets Versace, flawlessly brought to life by their talented team of vendors. Trust us when we say you must see this Vizcaya Museum & Gardens wedding.

Crafting Personalized Moments: A Vizcaya Museum & Gardens Wedding Ceremony to Remember

We worked with our officiant, a good friend, to create a deeply personal ceremony. My 92-year-old grandma, who only speaks Spanish, wrote and read a prayer for us. We wrote and read our vows, and they were astoundingly complementary. Our recessional song was “We’re All Dudes” because we both love “Good Burger.” Our dog wore a tux, walked down the aisle, and stood with the groomsmen. There were also touches of him throughout the reception, like on our cocktail napkins and atop our cake. Our logo, which another good friend created, was featured everywhere, including on the dance floor. We also wrapped the night by scream-singing “Welcome to the Black Parade” with all our (millennial) guests.

Tackling Wedding Stress Through Strategies in Organization and Communication for Their Vizcaya Museum & Gardens Wedding

I’m not sure I ever figured out how to manage the stress, but I tried to be organized, decisive, timely, detail-oriented and communicative with my planner and vendors throughout the whole process. And I can honestly say the stress was 100 percent worth it. I’d do it all over again for that perfect day.

How They Crafted an Anthropologie Meets Versace Wedding

I’ve always loved color and wanted our wedding to be vibrant and warm. The unofficial theme was Anthropologie meets Versace, which genuinely felt that way! I’m most proud of pulling off the most magical day of our lives from 3,000 miles away (we live in Los Angeles) and ensuring every detail was meaningful, authentic, and unique to us.

From Childhood Fascination to Wedding Venue

I’ve loved Vizcaya since I was a kid. I always knew I wanted to get married there. I revisited it as an adult and fell in love all over again. It’s the most stunning place I’ve ever seen. My husband and I are also both half-Italian, so it felt like the perfect fit.

A Day of Surprises and Joy: Highlights from Their Vizcaya Museum & Gardens Wedding

The entire day, from start to finish, was euphoric! Surprising Nate at the altar with a tattoo I got while getting ready, having our handsome Golden Retriever crush it as our Flower Dog, the unbelievable flowers, exchanging our extremely personal vows, the live painter, nailing our first dance, doing a shotski during the reception, dancing in the rain at the end of the night. We can’t pick just one.
