South Beach Inspired Wedding in Long Island, NY: Barbeth + Asly
This wedding was a long time a coming, a story of true high school sweethearts. Barbeth and Asly met in high school and dating led to a beautiful daughter, an even beautiful proposal on their daughter’s birthday, and an exciting mid-summer wedding before jetting off to a Grand Cayman honeymoon. Wedding theme was South Beach inspired using the David’s Bridal colors of Begonia and Malibu. Read their full engagement story here>>
Both set of parents were born and raised in the Caribbean island of Haiti. The bride and groom who were raised in Brooklyn, NY grew up listening to the music, eating the food and experiencing the Caribbean culture. The bride’s mom and dad walked her down the aisle while her sister stood witness as her maid-of-honor and her daughter as mini-bride.

My advice for brides-to-be and engaged couples:
The best advice that I can give to brides-to-be and engaged couples is, regardless of your budget hire a wedding planner! And if you’re a DIY (do-it-yourself) bride, nothing beats hiring a day-of-coordinator. Planning a wedding is stressful, and the day of is even more hectic, so why leave it to chance? And while I’m dishing out advice, here’s one more… Pick a bridal party that will help out!
Shout out to Barbeth and Asly’s bridesmaid and groomsmen for answering the call and jumping in when it was required!
