The Romance of Spain


Excitingly crackling silence. The wonderful smell of cinnamon fills the air. Quietly sounds a melody… It´s the wind chimes of stars made of glass oscillated by a soft breeze. Little flames in protective tealights call our attention to the beautifully decorated table. Dinner is served!

Eventdesigner Aviva from Kiss the Planner, the floral artists of Anthology Co. and photographer Melanie Gabrielle created such an adorable world right here at the Villa Woodbine in Miami. A whiff of vintage, a little bit of pure nature and a touch of rustic rootedness made this styled shoot an incomparable eye-catcher.

„Villa Woodbine in Miami is a magnificent venue that encapsulates old world charm and natural European beauty.” Aviva from Kiss the Planner told.

Upon doing a site inspection, we were captivated by the patterns and colors in the ceramic mosaic tiles on the staircase. Elements of these were recreated on the lovely cake and in the fresh tablescape in the garden under the giant oak trees. It was a privilege to work with such a talented team of vendors and am grateful for the magnificent photos capture by Melanie Gabrielle.”

We absolutely associate ourselves with Avivas words and can´t wait to dive with you into Melanie Gabrielle’s unique world of pictures to escape our everyday lives for a moment…
