Real Miami, Florida Beach Wedding at Acqualina Resort: Arianne + Amir

Arianne and Amir met through mutual friends at a barbecue, and hit it off immediately. In fact, Amir was so sure that he had met the perfect woman for him that he proposed to Arianne a mere 5 months after they met. Arianne was also so positive that Amir was the one for her that she didn't hesitate to say, "Yes!", when Amir proposed during prayer over a Thanksgiving meal.

Wedding Details ..... "Our wedding was in Miami at the Acqualina Resort and Spa. The planning process was smooth and wonderful. There was no real theme, other than to have a beachy destination feel for our guests. It was a "bohemian chic" type of event. We wanted our guests to enjoy themselves, lay back and enjoy the ocean breeze. However, there was a hint of elegance to set the event apart!"

Most Unforgettable Moments ..... "The most memorable part was reading our vows. It was wonderful to know that we were really there and really getting married at that very moment! It was wonderful!!!!! 

I also had a rose for my deceased father and a chair reserved in his honor."

{You Make Loving You So Easy}

 "This may sound odd, but I think the thing that we like most about each other is our hearts. We both love with ease, and it is refreshing to find another in the image of one's self."
