The design of the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Hotel and the simple, elegant vision of the bride paired well for Ashley and Ivan’s modern ballroom wedding.
Natural lighting in the ballroom of the Sonetsa Fort Lauderdale created a bright ambiance for this modern ballroom wedding. Reception tables were topped with ivory linens and an ivory floral centerpieces. To offset the ivory, the bride incorporated black Chiavari chairs and black napkins for contrast on the tables.
From the photographer: As an event planner in Boston by day, Ashley had plenty of experience planning a wedding! Simple & elegant was the order of her day, and Ashley nailed it! Her destination wedding had a color scheme of black and ivory. It was so stylish and perfect for her Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach location. Thanks to the lingering winds of Hurricane Matthew, the entire wedding was indoors, but that didn’t matter at all! Ashley and Ivan had the best day of their lives, and wish they could relive each moment all over again.
