Rusty Pelican Wedding Miami | Jennyfer & Alexis

Jennyfer and Alexis’s Rusty Pelican Wedding in Miami was elegant and full of fun!

The day started out in the bridal suite! The bride and her crew looked absolutely gorgeous and they had on the most beautiful lace-lined robes & fluffy white slippers! There was a hilarious moment in the dressing room involving a flying champagne cork. But lucky everyone was ok! Jennyfer’s mom was present in the bridal suite and she was so loving and doted on her daughter all day. She helped Jennyfer get into her dress and fastened the oversized bow on the back of her gown. From there, with Jennyfer fully dressed for the day, we moved on to her bridal portraits! I posed Jennyfer in front of the double French doors in her bridal suite because they had tons of natural light pouring in. Wait until you see the gorgeous shot below, she was positively glowing!

Meanwhile, in the groom’s suite, Alexis was fastening his bowtie and putting on his royal blue jacket, getting ready to meet his gorgeous bride for a first look! Their first look was such a moment, you could feel the joy radiating from them when Alexis turned around and laid eyes on his bride for the first time that day. There might’ve even been a few happy tears (the best kind of tears there are!)

From there, Jennyfer and Alexis were off to Plymouth Congregational Church, to recite their sacred vows to one another. There was a beautiful union ceremony, lots of smiles, and one amazing kiss to seal the deal! The church is known for its coral rock walls, which make for a great location to take some post-ceremony photos.

Once their union was official, we were off to the Rusty Pelican in Miami for their wedding reception!

Jennyfer and Alexis were the first ones to see the space decorated for their wedding day. In the wedding industry, we call this a room reveal. During a room reveal the couple gets to walk into the room (without any guests inside) and typically their planner and photographer will accompany them inside. This gives them a few minutes of privacy with each other after their ceremony and also lets them lay eyes on their room before the celebration begins!

Their wedding reception at the Rusty Pelican in Miami was the picture of perfection! There were good eats, lots of dancing, heartfelt speeches and so much love in the room!

Toward the end of the night, Molosandra Circus showed up and treated the bride, the groom, and their guests to a hora loca! There were gorgeous vibrant performers, stilt walkers, and so much dancing! All of the guests were on their feet celebrating Jennyfer & Alexis’s love!

From Jennyfer & Alexis

“Where can I begin? Working with Claudia from the beginning was amazing! She was recommended by a friend, and I am so glad she did our wedding & engagement photos. Claudia was so patient even when I was planning my wedding for 2020, but thankfully we were able to get married in 2021. Even though she was not my photographer yet, she was so sweet and helpful through the process. I always appreciated her advice and input. She is very available and always willing to help. She likes to listen to your wants and makes them happen!”

“For our engagement photos, despite a lot of rain, she did a beautiful job! We were both impressed by her work. For our wedding, we had 3 locations and she managed the timeline with such grace. She created a timeline that was feasible and never felt rushed or uncomfortable. She made sure I was cared for through the process. Her photos are amazing, exactly what I was looking for. She captured our day beautifully. Claudia was very professional, enthusiastic to work with, and very romantic. She always understood what I was looking for from the beginning and delivered. I will continue to use her services for future photoshoots. She is a pleasure to work with. Totally recommend her work.”
