Yuliya and Yama

We first met this lovely couple back in October of 2015. The bride, Yuliya, is from The Ukraine and the groom, Yama, from Afghanistan. Although they live in Washington DC, they preferred to have a Destination Wedding and chose Miami as the location since they both love the beach and the sun. While doing some research on venues in Miami, Yuliya stumbled upon the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens and had to make a trip to visit it. Vizcaya was created as James Deering’s subtropical winter home in the 1910s and today it is a National Historic Landmark and accredited museum. It is also a stunning 50-acre venue for weddings, corporate affairs and social events. After visiting the venue, Yuliya fell in love with her grandeur and majestic views of Biscayne Bay. She ultimately decided that her wedding was to be held at Vizcaya.

Guests were welcomed with a glass of champagne as they entered the venue and made their way to the ceremony. The ceremony was conducted in an elevated very picturesque area, where tall, beautifully matured trees and clear skies made way for an absolutely romantic and intimate moment. The décor for their wedding reception included beautifully draped round and royal tables, a “gold sponge” charger plate with matching gold-rimmed dinnerware for each guest. The floral centerpieces included light pink roses, white hydrangeas, lisianthus and ranunculus flowers.


Upon the conclusion of the ceremony, guests made their way to the

Gardens for the reception where they enjoyed cocktails.
