Carrie + Robert’s Modern Waterfront Wedding


 Bride and Groom: Carrie and Robert

How the couple met

Carrie used to drive by this one mechanic shop all the time, and began having issues with her car. So one day she decided to stop in and happened to met Robert by chance as he was the first person in that morning. They flirted for hours, before he finally took the car in for repair. After that they continued to date and 5 years later were engaged. They had a 2 year engagement, due to work and craziness that is life in general.

Once Carrie began to look for wedding venues, she thought she was set on a hotel venue up north, but once she went for an official walk through, she immediately decided to look elsewhere. Knowing th
ey had a lot of family coming in from out of town they decided to find a unique space, and through an internet search she found the Miami Seaquarium. It was indeed a very unique venue and she thought we must check it out! Once at the space, they fell in LOVE with Sunset Cove the venue adjacent to Miami Seaquarium and the incredible skyline backdrop, right away she knew this was the place for them!

The venue director at Sunset Cove put them in touch with myself, Sandra Perez an Event Specialist with Bill Hansen Catering, and we had an immediate connection. For the next 6 months, we had many meetings, phone calls and emails, to work on the details of planning their dream wedding. In conjunction with many of our incredible vendor partners, we were able to execute a flawless Wedding for this incredible couple.

We want to send our Best Wishes to the new Mr. and Mrs. on their Happily Ever After!
