Monifa and Jean’s Parisian Themed Wedding

A mutual friend first introduced Jean and Monifa, but a chance rainy day meeting under a tent at Miami’s Jazz in the Gardens brought them together. They spent the whole evening in conversation, and Jean was smitten. He knew Monifa had just started anesthesia school and thus was reluctant to start a relationship, but Jean had a plan.

As the creative force behind The Design Group Miami, the city’s premier event planning and production firm, he knew a statement would be just the thing to sway Monifa’s resolve. And he was right! After sending the most opulent floral arrangement he’d ever designed to her hospital, Monifa could no longer resist and the two soon became inseparable.

It was on a trip to New York four years later while they both were enjoying a Central Park carriage ride that Jean proposed, and to his delight Monifa said yes!

Jean’s profession meant he had a big hand in the planning, and, working together, they set an April date for their fabulous Parisian-themed wedding. Held at the Miami Seaquarium’s Sunset Cove in Key Biscayne, Florida, their celebration captured the opulence, romance and imagination of Paris.

When she visited us at Bridal Styles Boutique, we knew she would be a stunning bride and that her custom designed 10-karat gold-plated Swarovski crystal encrusted headpiece, veil, earrings and bracelet were fabulous…but on her wedding day Monifa was a queen!
