Hitched in South Florida: Davie Wedding

Jessica Dobbins & Kohler Nordlund

March 31, 2017

When it came time to pop the question, Kohler took Jessica to the top ¬†of a lighthouse in Key Biscayne where he (and the views) nearly sweapt the blonde beauty off her feet. For their big day, the couple envisioned vintage Hollywood at the Signature Grand. “The venue was so beautiful and elegant,” says Jessica, opting for a peach, ivory and gold color scheme. Wearing Sottero and Midgley, the bride was reminiscent of a starlet from yesteryear, while the groom tapped into his inner James Bond with a sleek Calvin Klein tux. The bride’s best friend officiated their “I dos” and after the newlyweds kissed, they grooved back down the aisle to Stevie Wonder, kicking off a party to remember. For their honeymoon, they vacationed in Kauai and Maui.

Harken back to the glamour of the swinging ’60s with the newly opened ELV venue and reception space in Miami Beach. Originally designed by famed architect Morris Lapidus in 1966, who was also the mastermind behind the Fontainebleau and Eden Roc hotels, the building recently underwent a $2 million renovation to restore the property to its former glory. Features include a first-floor cocktail reception room, an expansive ballroom with original chandeliers and a 4,000-square-foot commissary for in-house catering by chef Yung Ngo-Hong, formerly of Nobu. Located in South Beach near the Fillmore and New World Symphony, the venue is a hidden gem, that can now be enjoyed by couples who appreciate chic architecture and the city’s illustrious history. Venue rental from $8,000, 1723 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 305.407.2266, elvmiamibeach.com
