Lemor + Adam’s Miami wedding at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens was a total treat for the senses. Think garden glamor meets gold and satin grandeur galore! We love the breathtaking natural wood structure where the bride and groom exchanged vows and the eye-catching hanging glass balls created a lovely sense of wonder amidst lush gardens. Don’t miss Lemor’s beautifully textured ivory floral Lazaro bridal ball gown, complete with beaded bodice and rich layers of petals on the skirt with crystals in the center of each flower. Enjoy!
Lemor + Adam | March 15, 2015 | Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami, FL | Dress Listing: Lazaro, 3161
The Ceremony The ceremony took place in garden and we had a traditional Jewish ceremony. Our chuppah was particularly meaningful because we stood under three prayer shawls to represent our three late grandparents. The flowers were my favorite – hydrangea and a few orchids, and the natural wood structure went beautiful with the garden setting.
The Reception Our reception was a blast! It took place outdoors under a tent on the east balcony of Vizcaya Mansion facing the water. Each table had it’s own unique flare – round, rectangular, satin tablecloths, sequin tablecloths, tall flower arrangements, short flower arrangements…it kept the space visually appealing. The DJ kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. It was a night to remember!
Lemor’s Dress Search I must have tried on ten to twenty lace fit-and-flare dresses and none of them felt like the one for me. My mom kept saying I should try on a ball gown and I said no because I’m not a “girly girl” and I didn’t think I’d like it. As I was looking at a dress I had on at Kleinfeld’s that wasn’t cutting it, a sales lady walked back to the stock room to return a big poofy ball gown. I stopped her and said, “Mom, what do you think?” She sarcastically said, “Haha, very funny,” when I was completely serious about trying it on. When I put on the dress, I knew this was the one for me. It was totally NOT what I expected I’d like, but I felt beautiful, I felt like a bride, and most importantly, I felt comfortable and like myself.
How Lemor Felt in Her Wedding Dress Sophisticated, Elegant, Comfortable
Why Lemor Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress My wedding dress is something that I will never wear again. Styles change so quickly, so I’d never want to push my dress on my children someday. The dress is also big and storage space is a commodity in NYC! I’d much rather have someone be able to enjoy the dress as much a I did over having sit in a box in a closet for decades begging to be worn.
