Dexter & Alec Say “I Do” | Cruz Building Wedding

Our handsome Couple:

How did you meet?

We met at a summer conference at UCF back before junior year of high school. Dexter was supposed to go to the conference at Emory, however, he was in Florida for the summer visiting his dad so he went to the UCF camp instead. Come to find out, his dad lived in Hollywood and I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, so we were able to see each other after the camp was over.

The Venue: Cruz Building:

The Cruz Building, Coconut Grove offers you the perfect storybook setting. The glamorous 3-level venue is adorned with soaring atrium ceilings, monumental stained-glass windows, majestic marble staircases for grand entrances, European and French/New Orleans architectural antiques, romantic interior balconies and sweeping outdoor terraces—all romantically illuminated by interior gas flame lanterns and glistening antique crystal chandeliers. A wedding dream if I ever saw one.

The Wedding 

This jewel-toned beauty at The Cruz Building in Coconut Grove, Florida was the essence of old-world romance. Dexter & Alec created a beautiful and magical event for everyone as they treated their guests to many delights.  Each level of the venue revealed more of its well-thought-out wedding.
