Historic Elegance


Excitedly flickering candles bathe the sacred halls in warm light, spreading the romantic atmosphere this moment deserves.

Hands are shaking, voices are quavering and hearts are pounding like mad, while one swears ones worded love to the other.

The blooming garden awaits the newly weds with bright sunshine, symbolically for the life that lies ahead…

Obviously effortlessly event stylist and florist Hollie of Elleson Events  put opulent flower arrangements, a table full of subtle elegance, graceful calligraphy and a stunning bride in the unique monastery´s dreamlike ambience.

„Inspired by the rich history held within the walls of The Old Spanish Monastery in Miami, Florida, Hollie with EElleson Events  took our vision along with our sweet couple Gabrielle and Brian and turned it into something exquisite.“ photographer Sarah of Simply Sarah Photography swoons over this shoot.

The dedicated team attached great importance to subtle grace, natural beauty and real emotions: „We chose a neutral color palette and heirloom details that paired perfectly with the detailed architecture of the Monastery and allowed the sweet love shared between these two to really shine!“ the artist behind the camera explained.

Take some time to discover all the lovely details designed by the successful event stylist and let the great pictures shot by Simply Sarah Photography soothe your day!
