In keeping with our tropical theme today, this gorgeous Miami elopement is just lush.

Lexi and Adam held their intimate wedding on Crandon Beach after a romantic day spent in the breathtaking Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.

Elopements like this always make me question whether or not I want to just run off some day and get married!

And Lexi in her fab Ann Taylor wedding dress, and glamorous side swept curls, and Adam in his dapper suit with an oh-so-sharp tie clip, have me dreaming of exotic shores and dinner for two.

Their day was captured by the wonderful Elaine Palladino Photography, and despite the beautiful setting around them, this gorgeous pair only had eyes for eachother…

Why An Elopement?

It’s simple. I didn’t want the stress of planning a wedding!

I have seen family and friends go through it and it is exhausting! At the end of the day, I wanted to marry the love of my life, it didn’t matter if a thousand people were there, or just us two. I was going to be happy either way.

Favourite Moment

The reading of our vows was by far the most memorable moment.

Being able to express our feelings and commit to one another in front of our family was a very special and emotional moment for both of us.
