The lovely little wedding we have for you today features a stunning venue - the Westin Colonnade in Coral Gables - and some seriously beautiful photos from Elaine Palladino Photography. The gorgeous bride, Chantel, brought her classic black & white color palette to life by taking on many of the details herself.
I'm loving the groomsmen's striped ties - so classy and the perfect modern touch.
Elaine and her team captured some of the most beautiful ceremony photos I've ever seen.
The historic, marble-tiled Rotunda at the Westin Colonnade is absolutely stunning. I've been to several events there and always find myself looking around in awe...
Chantel gave us a little info on her DIY projects:
"I created all the programs for the church, the menus and the invitations. I bought the kits at Michael's, created the design and printed them at home. They have kits for invitations as well as for programs. I also made the table letters, bought the cardstock paper at Michael's, printed them at home and bought black antique looking frames from a variety of stores (Marshall's, Ross, TJ Maxx etc.) - wherever I could get my hands on a few at a time.
"Also, the honey jars were purchased from Ikea, with labels that I ordered from Etsy (More and More Originals). The seating candles were created from a kit purchased at Michael's also. I bought the vellum paper and the boxes of votives and printed them at home."
Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous work with us, Elaine, and our happiest congrats to Chantel and Delwin! It looks like you had an amazingly fun, beautiful and love-filled day.
