A starry night wedding at Florida's Morikami Museum & Japanese Garden | Sara + Michael


Toronto couple, Sara and Michael, held a special place in their heart for Florida and chose the sunny  spot for their destination wedding. They wanted their guests to feel like they have been transported somewhere magical. Florida wedding venue, Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens, was just the place to whisk their guests away. A unique and elegant wedding venue filled with culture, diversity, and plenty of spots to capture that perfect photo.

Their luxurious wedding was held underneath night sky and beautifully lit by twinkly string lights. Event planner and designer Alana of Swoon Events assisted the couple in creating their lavish starry night wedding. Keep scrolling Alana shares even more details about the couple's decor and details. 


BRIDE'S FAVORITE MOMENT


From the Bride: My favorite moment of the day was the first look when Michael saw me and we were surrounded by our parents, siblings and wedding party.You can see their first look in the full gallery here. 


My favorite design detail was the string lights and long tables, seeing it all come together on the day of the wedding was so magical, it made me feel like we had been transported to Tuscany

YOU CAN BUY A MOËT & CHANDON CHAMPAGNE VENDING MACHINE


You do not see a Champagne vending machine every day! A Moët & Chandon champagne vending machine was at the venue. I investigated, and you can buy this bubbly filled machine for $35,000.  The vending machine does not include alcohol, and you will have to fill it yourself with the Moët & Chandon 187ml bottles.


With black, white, or gold, machines can be stocked with 360 mini bottles of champagne and personalized with your family name or favorite expression.

WEDDING DECOR & DETAILS


From Swoon Events on the decor look and feel of the evening - Since the entire wedding was outside, we wanted to embrace the beauty of nature and keep the florals organic with lots of texture and greenery. The long farmhouse tables also added a rustic touch, but we grounded this look by adding more modern elements such as the gold chairs and charger plates.


The giant champagne draped chuppah was romantic and elegant, and the addition of climbing vines gave it an organic feel.


The string lights created a magical starry sky. The farmhouse tables were covered in low floral arrangements, with little space in between each arrangement to create a floral hedge of sorts, which gave off a very luxurious feel.
