It’s PRIDE month and what a better way to celebrate than showcasing the fabulous East Hotel Miami wedding of Patrick + Jose!
From the first email, I knew we were going to get along just great as this duo are super Bravo fans and you know that there is nothing more fun than endless conversations and puns about the Real Housewives franchise.
Before I even tell you anything about their East Hotel Miami wedding day, I have to mention how Jose proposed to Patrick…
Being that they love The Real Housewives and that they both listen to the popular podcast Bitch Sesh, Jose planned and scheduled a shout out from the hosts of the show to pretty much propose to Patrick in the middle of an episode!
In addition to their love of pop culture and Erika Jayne, Patrick + Jose are the kindest, nicest people you will ever meet. They are fun and stylish and their Miami wedding was the perfect representation of this!
I love how the details of this wedding were simple, yet elegant and chic, and I adore the suits they chose to wear! White jackets with a black-tie are the perfect look for a Miami Wedding.
Patrick’s family is Greek and Jose’s is Colombian so you can imagine that the party was amazing! The dance floor was packed and guests were drinking shots of Aguardiente and Ouzo all night long!
When I asked them what was the most memorable part of their wedding day, they both said they loved their reception! I have to admit and say their party has been one of the best wedding receptions I have ever photographed 🙂
Patrick + Jose also has some great advice for future couples: “Hire Carolina to shoot your wedding! For us and our families, photos are so important and it was a chance to capture moments that will only happen on that one day. We were able to preserve that moment in time and see our friends and family looking their best and coming together for a happy celebration. The whole experience of having a photographer capture your day is the best way to preserve the great memories!
Also, have a Spanx disposal plan in case it becomes too uncomfortable after the ceremony. They’re made for both men and women and can really help your silhouette but can become quite cumbersome as you’re eating and drinking!”
Patrick + Jose, thank you for choosing me as your photographer! Your wedding was perfection and I wish you two a fantastic life together filled with love, adventure, and prosperity!
