It was the most perfect sunny day overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The ceremony and reception was held at B Ocean Hotel, Penthouse floor at one of the most modish wedding venues among Fort Lauderdale hotels. Featuring a chic, modern design, this wedding was filled with so many personal touches by this adorable pair and their loving families.
As for the bridal party, the bride had all of her bridesmaids choose their own dress and design, which all were custom designed and fit all her ladies perfectly.
The groomsmen were dressed to the “T” in their grey suits accented with bright, colorful and fun socks!
Working with grey, purple, yellow, and green colors she wanted to make sure the rest of the design balanced modern, traditional, fresh, simple and fun with a touch of elegance to create an unforgettable look.
These two lovebirds met in college at University of Miami. Both college star athletes, the Bride played soccer and the Groom played baseball. This is what led these two to choose their wedding in Florida!
The Bride and Groom shared their First Look, talk about a heart-felt and precious moment! Bride says that “this was one of my favorite moments of our wedding day!”
During the ceremony, the Bride and Groom wrote their own personal vows which made that moment so much more special. A verse from the Bride’s vows: “You’re the calm to my crazy, the chaos to my list making, and the best part of my day.”
Walking into the reception with the sun pouring in which illuminated the setting, shared with their dearest closest family and friends, it was simply magical!The lighting was intimate and dramatic, creating the effect of a romantic dinner.
Their wedding cake was decorated with yellow florals designed by the Mother of the Groom, which added such an artistic and loving touch.
This detail definitely takes it to a new level of awesome! Before dancing begun, the Bride and Groom changed into their matching Nike Air Jordan 1 Black/Shadow! The Groom is known for being a “sneaker head,” so this fun idea came right from the Groom!
As the evening came to an end, a special midnight snack was shared with their guests…both the Bride and Groom’s favorite snack, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Raben, wishing you two much love, laughter, and Happily Ever After! To see video of the day, please click here!
