This Glamorous Miami Wedding Is An Ode To Art Deco Fashion

Glamorous Thalatta Estate Miami Wedding – Donna Irene Photography – A La Robe Wedding Dress – Bridal Musings 2

The glittering art deco headpiece. The jewel-encrusted heels. The bias-cut silk wedding gown (by my own designer, A La Robe). The white fur coat, the green suits and gold details. This Miami wedding is not only an ode to fashion, but transports us back to the glamorous 1920s.

Angelica’s gossamer overskirt, also designed by A La Robe, is much like the delicately embroidered silk chiffon of the 1920s. And, it’s not just fashion. Art Deco details, naturally found in Miami as it is, show up in the iconic palms and elegant stationery.

Whether or not Angelica and Stephen intended this to be such a glorious nod to the 1920s, it all comes together effortlessly and elegantly. The fashion and decor flow together in the space, feeling natural and most of all, stylish.

Our Love Story

Our love story is simply wonderful. We’ve known each other since 2004. Our families went to the same church and somehow (neither of us can remember) we became Facebook friends. Fast forward to 2017 and we reconnected over a post one of us shared on music and the rest is history. I (the bride) moved to Boston after dating long-distance for about a year and we’ve been doing life together ever since.

The Photography & Videography

For photography, I’ve always admired Donna’s work and the quality of her photos is what we were looking for on our special day.

For videography, Nate and Ali Happer were actually close friends of one of our best friends and highly recommended. Their work seemed to really fit us as a couple as well so they were the perfect fit for our video.

Favorite Details

The music. We created playlists for each part of our day just to make sure we were “creating vibes.” My husband went to Berklee and we’re both huge music junkies and wholeheartedly believe in how music can really set a mood. Our goal was to bring joy and a sense of comfort to our day.

The style. My husband and I love to dress up so we definitely showed up in style for our big day. My partner wore a green suit and I had a 2-in-1 look with a fun fur coat. The pictures speak for themselves.

The food. Our cultures reflect a strong emphasis on food with flavor and we were really excited for our guests to eat. Our menu consisted of rice and pigeon peas, short rib, a pasta station and more with the one and only goal of ‘hitting the spot.’ We received so many compliments!

“Our day was perfect. Set with sunflowers and greenery, our wedding colors were black and green with gold and yellow accents. The ceremony and reception had our favorite songs; tunes our guests either also knew by heart or just discovered and we kept it all simple and intimate. The best part was being surrounded by most of our favorite people. Dancing with our chosen family and family alike and celebrating love amidst a pandemic. We ended our night with a sparkler exit and rolled away to Miami Beach as Mr. and Mrs. Batts in a 1962 Rolls Royce.”

– Bride Angelica

Advice to Other Couples

Pinterest was the move for any inspiration. I deep-dived quite a bit so where I started was never really where I ended but besides that, I had a pretty clear vision of what my husband and I wanted our day to look like. I also used a spreadsheet to keep track of expenses and a to-do list in a way. Luckily, I have event planning experience and I’m very organized so planning the wedding was fun for me.
