Laura and Joshua’s tropical garden inspired wedding at the Palms Hotel & Spa was full of so much joy! At every corner, you had someone tearing up or smiling ear to ear. We love it when guests are truly present for our couples big day. And to make things even better, Kelly from Kelly Altier Weddings planned a spectacular evening. The timeline of the day was perfect. Everything ran like clockwork even when the weather was not cooperating. So critical! Especially when having a sunset ceremony.
Their ceremony was set right at sunset, giving it a different feel than your typical daytime Miami Beach wedding. The key to sunset ceremonies is to do a first look prior. This way we can take advantage of your venue during the day and get day time portraits. Their ceremony was set right at sunset, giving it a different feel than your typical daytime Miami Beach wedding. If cocktail hour isn’t your thing, after the ceremony we can take advantage and do some night time portraits so you have variety in your gallery. Laura and Joshua opted out of the night time portraits and enjoyed their guests’ company together with a few signature cocktails. Another great reason to do a sunset ceremony is to have cooler weather for you and your guests. Daytime beach ceremonies are beautiful, but can be brutal in the summer.
Why the Palms Hotel is Great for Weddings
As you scroll through these highlights you’ll notice how beautiful the Palms Hotel is. It has luscious gardens and ornate architecture that has that coastal vibe.

Some of our couples opt for a gazebo ceremony and terrace reception, while other have a beach ceremony, tiki cocktail hour and indoor ballroom reception. The choices are endless and each spot has a unique design making The Palms Hotel one of the easiest places for us to feel inspired to photograph. Take a peek! – XO Jess
