A White Wedding at Coral Gables Country Club in Coral Gables, Florida
Sarah Kemper (30 and a teacher) and Gabriel Zilban (30 and a real-estate agent) filled their traditional wedding with ivory and white accents, but what we loved most was the natural wedding arch. Kitanim, the couple’s florist, designed a chuppah covered in white orchids and willow-tip branches as sheer white fabric accented the canopy. Lush hedges and trees around Coral Gables Country Club provided a picturesque backdrop as they surrounded the couple’s ceremony space. Sarah stood out as she made her entrance in a classic white, A-line wedding dress. Intricate beading accented her waist as a subtle ruffle detail floated along the front. After Sarah and Gabriel exchanged rings, all celebrated with a festive indoor reception. Amber uplighting filled the room as Anje Soriees, the couple’s planner, lined each round table with rosette-detailing linens, ivory chair covers and champagne sashes. Kitanim also placed a playful arrangement at the center. Floating willow-tip branches were topped with overflowing white hydrangeas, orchids and greenery for an unexpected touch. After dinner, each guest was treated to chocolate cups of tiramisu and a slice of the couple’s four-tier ivory wedding cake. The venue’s chef accented every tier with champagne ribbon and pearls. All finished the night with dancing and a few photos. “The Eventz Photo Booth was a big hit entertaining guests with creative props and interesting backdrops," Sarah says. "The photos were a nice keepsake for the guests to remember the event.” NEOART Photography captured every moment, below.
