Having dated seven years prior to their nuptials, Maria and Tyler are college sweet hearts that met one another at a friend’s party. The New Jersey pair decided to have their wedding at the Mandarin Oriental in Miami, with the ceremony taking place at St. Jude Catholic Church. From the minute we met Maria and Tyler we knew that it would be a wonderful couple to capture on film, both of their families were outgoing, loveable, and the couple exuded the love that brought them to this moment.

The bride’s wedding gown was designed by Amsale and had a long journey making it down to Miami due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy; a mutual friend of the bride and groom was the only person who was able to pick up her dress in the flooded streets of NY when they couldn’t find a single carrier to do so. Despite that minor hiccup, Maria and Tyler were able to celebrate with their family and friends in an elegant black and white theme designed by Design 42.
