Intimate restaurant elopement | 100 Layer Cake

Since the ladies of Persnickety Events & To Love Photographie have an affinity for intimate weddings and quaint restaurants, they decided to collaborate on a styled elopement shoot. Living in Miami, they know firsthand how chock full of restaurants it is and how stylish and savvy to cater to elopers they would be. They went with the eclectic mix of industrial and Mediterranean furnishings and courtyard of Soyka. Ornate chandeliers, wooden frames, a cornucopia of candelabras, every cracked piece of plaster there is intentional and adds to its overall charm. For budget conscious couples, a venue like this is perfect because minimal decor is needed.

Our bride is audacious. She exudes style, art and brilliance. Her paneled maxi skirt and romantic applique lace top are a relaxed twist on the typical white wedding gown. The table is clad in a crisp, white linens, burlap runner and napkins. We chose to keep the linens earthy to contrast the style at Soyka however, to play on the lavish décor of the venue, we selected baroque gold chargers and white plates coupled with gold stemmed utensils and crystal glassware. The invitations and cake continued the earthy contrast and tied everything together seamlessly.
