They first met while cooking together at Ortanique on the Mile. Next thing you know they were on their first date! It was Shark Week 2013 and they hit up “The Bar” in Coral Gables, had some beers, and watched…wait for it —-> Jaws! I love me some non traditional first dates! But this was just the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Fast forward to their wedding day! I walk in the door and basically just start to cry as I see her getting her makeup done. For those of you who don’t know, Tasha and I met in this industry and she quickly has become one of my dearest friends! She is a beautiful inside and out, honest, loyal, and an extremely talented artist, as you may see from her above custom wedding stationery.
You may also remember her from our incredible cross country girls trip to Joshua Tree, California where we made magic in the desert! It was on this trip that we got to know each other on another level and I got to hear all about her partner, who by the way, is an incredible Chef! But beyond that- as she would say, kind, hardworking, ticklish and an overall amazing partner! I just have to add funny and sweet because the way he looked at her it was like no one else was in the room! *sigh*
Ok! Back to her day… Angel from Rodri Studio knocked her inspiration out of the park! The Penthouse Wharf has never looked so good! Her wedding embraced the best of the Magic City, as it was all about bold colors and embracing Miami and the beautiful mix of city chic + tropical vibes!
This wedding from the personal details including family heirlooms to both of them being the most relaxed bride & groom I have ever had the honor of photographing, to the overall atmosphere encompassed everything Tasha & Justin are as a couple…just altogether dope!
There’s nothing like a sunset ceremony! Everything was glowing! The festivities were just about to begin! A night under the stars, you felt the love & warmth emanating from each and every person surrounding them. They sang to each other and danced their first dances with the world sparkling all around them! It was pure magic once again.
Thank you guys so much for trusting me to share and capture this day with you!
Cheers to this dream team who helped make her vision come to life!
