Our wedding was amazing! I was 2 hours late for it, but it turned out perfect! I married the most amazing man on earth and all of the vendors (who actually showed up) were awesome! It was definitely a dream wedding!
Adam has made some truly awesome pieces of jewelry for us. For our wedding he was able to completely copy a ring that belongs to my husband's father. He has told his dad several times if he ever gets tired of it to pass it along. So, Adam's awesome master jeweler, Joe, took the ring, molded it and made a replica in white gold, instead of the yellow his father's ring is in. We were able to use a diamond of his mother's and a bit of gold from various other pieces of jewelry from his family.
The result was breathtaking. My husband actually got a little teary when I gave it to him on our wedding day. Adam and his jeweler also designed his wedding band from scratch, and are working on designing bands for me to go with my ring.
I will never trust anyone else with my family heirlooms, they are totally trustworthy and professional. You can not beat the prices either for the amazing quality of work they produce.
Twice a year they do a "Diamond Dash" also, which is totally fun! We've done it once and came in 4th. We plan on taking 1st next time and the $30,000 diamond ring prize!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Mike! He was so great!
His online music selection thing was so easy to use and helped me find songs I wouldn't have thought of on my own. There was also a planner/timeline tool that originally I didn't think I would use because we had a planner, but she decided to up and quit on us a few weeks before the event. With Mike's timeline tool, we planned everything out perfectly.
The wedding started a bit late. (And by a bit, I really mean 2 hours) But Mike kept my guests entertained all the while. We had a pretty small gathering of only 30 people and 6 of them were wedding party, so my concern was that there wouldn't be much dancing and it might be awkward. Never a dull moment though. He kept the party going and the people on their feet! He made all the dedications and fit them into the flow of the night perfectly. Even getting my grandmother and grandfather up and dancing! I'm pretty sure they hadn't danced in like 20 years or so.
There was a point in the night that the bartender had gone to get more water and I was completely parched. I went to check on him and I guess he had overheard me asking for water and produced a bottle for me out of his dj booth. :)
I can't say enough wonderful things about Mike. He is really the DJ to have if you're having an event anywhere even remotely CLOSE to Miami!
WE LOVE YOU MIKE! Thank you for helping to make my wedding day perfect!
The Mediterranean Mansion was perfect for our destination wedding. It has 3 villas all on one property with a gorgeous little courtyard in the center, water features and the most friendly staff in the whole world. Mary was super helpful and her assistants were AWESOME! They even helped us decorate! The Mansion is located on Collins and 14th, which provided a great place to be centrally located. It has 5 bedrooms, which sleep 10 people comfortably. It also has a billiards room, a media room with the biggest tv I've ever seen, a sauna, gorgeous spiral staircases, a chef kitchen, and plenty of other working and living spaces. There were shops, the beach and Espanola Way, all within walking distance. Flanking the mansion on either side were a wonderful little restaurant on one side and the Beachcomber hotel on the other. It was a picture of perfection, seriously. I wouldn't recommend this place for over 30 guests though unless you plan on using the inside portion as well, or not having tables set up. We had 30 people, tables and chairs for all 30, plus lounge furniture. It fit perfect, but any more and it would have been cramped.
We live in Corpus Christi, TX, So finding a place in Miami proved to be difficult. We had a planner, but she wasn't very helpful, in fact, ended up quitting a few weeks before the wedding! It was a blessing in disguise though, because between Mary, Humberto and Ray they were all the planner one could need. Mary even offered to let me ship things to her if we needed to.
My only complaint was the lack of parking. There is like NO parking on Collins. We had to pay a ridiculous amount of money for our guests to park their cars in various garages. Mary let us use her private spaces for $25/day, which was about what all the other places charged, but hers was in a secured garage.
