Tascha + Patch | Tented Wedding and Epic Dance Party

May 30, 2020

Never have we had a more fun loving group than this Miami crowd! This group all showed up in white tuxedos, the most fabulously high-fashion gowns, dripping in jewels, yet they crowd surfed, drank tequila from the bottles and danced on the bar all night long! I guess that’s a testament to the uber elegant, yet approachable decor? 

Tascha + Patch said I do in a Catholic ceremony at St. Mary’s Italian Church amongst a ton of flowers! Then we second lined them next door to Old Ursuline Convent into an elaborately decorated cocktail hour tent! After they enjoyed fresh shucked oysters and lots of champagne, we opened the adjacent tent to reveal the place where they would dance the night away under the stars! It could not have been a more beautiful, albeit wild night! Just perfect for this sweet couple!

Could this be any more Cuban?

When second lining immediately after the ceremony, I love to print the ceremony program directly on the second line hanky! Combines two items you’d need anyway and offers a flair you can only get in Nola! 

The mother of the bride just beaming with joy and pride!

The open air tent we constructed and decorated for the reception- continuing with an elegant yet garden-y feel! 

Luminous Events created this custom round bar decked out in hedging! 

These photos of the Father of the Bride just capture the essence of this wedding!
