Miami Wedding: Sonia & Pankit (Part I)

He lives to make her happy. Freely and frankly and fully. Talk to him for just one second and he’ll tell you what it means. To see her smile, to watch her living a life worth dreaming…he would do anything. Give anything. Because he was born to make her happy. And he intends to spend his whole life trying to do just that.

She lives to love him. Freely and frankly and fully. Listen to her talk about him for just one second and she’ll tell you what that means. To see him stand, to walk out in courage toward a life worth dreaming…she would do anything. Give anything. Because she was born to love him.

And she intends to spend her whole life… doing just that.

Married: Sonia & Pankit

Sonia & Pankit had their destination wedding in Miami on a day where the clouds literally parted, and the sapphire sky rained down her happiest blessings. When the cool teal water lay still in the sun, and a warm Floridian breeze played freeze tag with the palm trees. It was the kind of day you dream about. Want to live over and over. The kind of day you would save and put up as your computer’s wallpaper if you could. Just so you could stare at it forever and ever. Yea, it was that kind of day. Sonia & Pankit, my hope for you is that you will always live to make each other happy. To love one another more than you love yourselves. And that if life ever brings you storm clouds, you’ll always remember the blue skies and cool teal water from that day. And it will bring you right back to that place.

To the start of a life worth dreaming.

So much love,

Sonia & Pankit had their amazing destination wedding at the newly renovated Eden Roc Hotel in Miami, which was GAWH-geous!!

Yea….Sonia you are STUNNING!! Love you!

Ahhhh the shoes! Sonia had her shoes hand painted to match her sari. I’m SORRY, but it doesn’t get any better than that! :) :)

The jewelry was exquisite.

Ummmm yea….it’s real! An incredibly generous gift to Sonia from Pankit’s parents!!

A HUGE thanks to Gloria Pelas & crew for rocking out Sonia’s hair & makeup!!

Pankit, you were looking pretty sharp yourself!!

Big Sister Pam hard at work.


Then it was time to head down to meet Pankit for the first look. We love to build up a lil’ anticipation!
