South Beach Wedding | Maija + Hedi | SLS Hotel

Alo lovely readers are you ready for this South Beach wedding!

I said it before and I’ll say it again, Congratulations Maija + Hedi! I had the pleasure of photographing this South Beach wedding alongside White House Wedding Photography. It was definitely an international affair; Maija is Finnish and Hedi is South African + American.

What a great day we had at SLS South Beach Hotel! Maija got ready at The Redbury Hotel and Hedi got ready at Shore Club Hotel. When I first saw Hedi, he was relaxing on the balcony with his groomsmen. They were talking and enjoying the sun on what began as a rainy day. We were waiting for a few more groomsmen to arrive due to, Miami traffic so I documented his details until they arrived. Hedi mentioned that he had a glam squad; I was stoked because, I have never documented a groom with a glam squad before. 

Hedi wore his dress white for the ceremony and changed for the reception. I loved his tie and the boutonniere. Maija looked absolutely stunning in her fit-and-flare wedding dress by Nicole Miller and she went the extra mile with red lipstick. I loved everything about what they wore on their day.

The wedding had to be moved from rooftop to indoors but, it went perfectly; partly in thanks to wedding planner Ociana Group for planning the amazing day! The reception was at K.Ramen.Burger.Beer in the Townhouse Hotel. I loved the atmosphere and Japanese wall decor in the restaurant. The restaurant was the perfect size for this intimate affair. 

We did lots of walking along Collins Avenue for this South Beach wedding. The great thing about this wedding was that everything was in walking distance. We walked from The Redbury Hotel to the Shore Club Hotel, to the SLS Hotel and ended the night at the Townhouse Hotel. The whole day was amazing!

 Join me in wishing Maija + Hedi many happy years.

Without further adieu, the Mr. and Mrs.!
