Marla is a real estate agent as well as a creative. Christian is an engineer and is also very creative in his own right. Together, they purchased a home that barely had walls and designed, renovated and built their dream home near Miami, Florida. After finishing their home, they decided there no better place to host their wedding than the home they created together. We began the day shooting Marla + Christian prepping in their home. We explored their neighborhood a bit and found some beautiful light near one of their neighbors front yard to create portraits with. It was really one of the most beautiful days I’ve ever spent in Miami, Marla + Christian married at dusk in their backyard, beneath the arbor that Christian, that like many things for the wedding and inside their home, he built with his own hands. It was important to Marla + Christian to spend very little time on traditions and spend more time doing what weddings are made for, celebration! These two created such a beautiful and fun environment for their backyard wedding in Miami, Florida. It goes without saying, that these two are incredibly easy on the eye! Marla wore an incredible Berta gown, which looked absolutely stunning on her. Christian looked entirely handsome in his suit! Beyond their obvious good looks, these two are just good people with big hearts who know how to have a fun time! We absolutely loved being part of their wedding celebration in Miami, Florida!
