Since the pandemic kept us away from photographing real weddings, we decided to have a little fun and stay creative by shooting some eclectic editorial images with a bit of a retro touch at Faena Hotel in Miami Beach. To make this shoot possible we collaborated with some of Miami’s finest industry vendors to create this dreamy editorial.
The colorful interiors, quirky patterns and 1950s hollywood glam of the hotel created a contrast in photos unlike any other. The retro white spa tub and sage floral walls of one of the spa suites played host to the fun, flirty photos of the bridal model’s getting ready moment. Although it was a gloomy day, the overcast weather was great for shooting outdoors. The red and white striped umbrellas made the lace wedding dress from Chernaya Bridal House coupled with the brown hat from the on-site boutique standout beautifully.
The mock ceremony was shot on the patio near the Instagram-famous glass-enclosed mammoth. At the end of what would be the wedding aisle, was a bouquet of flowers and seashells inspired by the hotel’s glam interiors. A small reception area was set up with a deep rose colored tablecloth, colorful flowers similar to those at the ceremony, mismatched tableware, and unique utensils that all came together for the perfect photographs.
For a bride who is looking for a truly different wedding experience with unique photos, the Faena Hotel Miami Beach is just the place to help you think outside of the box and stray from the norm. This editorial shoot definitely satisfied our photography cravings.
