Bridal Sign Up

Now Playing

Annie Gonzalez & Stephen Costa

June 4, 2011 | The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach | Miami Beach, Florida 

Attendees, and the honored couple, took turns posing in a photo booth.


Their rings were custom-made.

Shoes by Christian Louboutin, of course!


Couture Cakes by Dominique designed the shimmering cake to emulate pearls.

Exquisite Events handled the florals.


Place settings created a sophisticated, modern vibe.

The Couple
Annie and Stephen met in high school, but didn’t become sweethearts until after college graduation. He proposed during a 2010 New Year’s Eve countdown in Las Vegas.

The Details
Annie was in medical school during the planning process so she hired Sara Renee Lowell of Sara Renee Events for help. But she found time to score a gorgeous, pearl-encrusted Monique Lhuillier gown and a fabulous pair of Louboutins.

The Party
Brazilian samba dancers and drummers were ushered in at 1am. The bride changed out of her gown and into a slinky dress, then announced that the soirée was in full swing.
