This unique wedding, planned and designed by The Creative’s Loft, was featured on Junebug Weddings! The young couple abandoned conventional wedding traditions and opted for this elegant, quirky and extra stylish wedding at Miami’s Ace Props.
The Ancient Spanish Monastery provided a spectacular backdrop for this beautiful inter-faith / inter-cultural wedding. The couple exchanged vows in the lush, perfectly landscaped gardens, surrounded by 20 acres of rare palms, Spanish Oaks, Cycads, Banyans, and flowering trees, with the monastery’s 12th century Romanesque and Gothic buildings as a backdrop.
The Deering Estate at Cutler exudes elegance and tranquility, its manicured lawns lined with royal palms, slope gently down from the lush, tree-covered entrance and historic houses, to the quiet waters of Biscayne Bay. Claudia and Jose took their vows on the waterfront, under an arbor that was exquisitely decorated by Petal Productions, featuring a continuous garland of dark greenery, Star of Bethlehem, and roses in tones of soft blush and warm ivory.

Fondue is so much more than the meal of the evening, it's a primer to kick-start fire in the heart.
An Alpine Cheese Fondue for two is my favorite Valentine's dinner. It offers gentle warmth with light tones of kirsch, balancing the creaminess of the cheeses.
In my opinion, the last place to be on Valentine’s day is out on the town. As a true romantic, I opt for the ultimate gift: cooking from the heart. [ Michael Finizia ]

Why not throw a decadent afternoon tea party to celebrate your birthday with 20 girlfriends? We love the idea, and the spread at this beautiful Miami Beach private residence was fabulous. We laid out Petit Fours, little sandwiches, mini quiches, macarons and pastries. This particular tea involved copious amounts of champagne too, and I can definitely relate to that! As Coco Chanel once said: "I only drink champagne on two occasions. When I am in love and when I am not," cheers I say!
Desserts, Petit Fours, Chocolates, Pastries, Cakes and Pièces Montées, ohmygosh, the delectable fragrance of these sweet treats baking in our kitchen brings back the best of childhood memories, like coming home from school to my mom’s freshly baked cookies, or spending Saturday afternoon making cakes with my grandmother. However, sorry mom and grandma, as wonderful as your baking was, French Chef Pâtissier, Bruno Legros, is in another league!
