Jimena + Matthew
What was the one moment on your wedding day that is most memorable?
Definitely seeing Matt, the way he looked at me. He wouldn’t take his eyes off me. I knew I was going to shred some tears but I was not expecting him to do so. As I was reaching the altar, I just could not help but laugh.
What details or traditions did you include on your wedding day?
We danced the waltz, per tradition, I started with my dad, relatives and friends rotated in until Matt came in at the end.
Why did you choose the Rusty Pelican for your venue?
We loved the view and with so many guests coming from out of town, we thought it was a good way for them to see Miami. We also wanted a sunset wedding. I had been to the Rusty Pelican before but Matt had never been, the day we went to look at it, we walked into the ballroom and he just said “wow.” I knew then the out of town guest will love the view.
What inspired your vision for your wedding?
It’s hard to say, I didn’t have something particular that I wanted or had dreamt about. I just wanted the wedding to be fun and personal and it was.
