In a sumptuous Miami, Florida wedding of ruffles, bright yellow bouquets, and bubbles, this happy couple ties the knot in grand style in these images from Jerry Ghionis. The bride poses demurely in her veil, slips into her gown with the help of a bridesmaid, and embraces a beaming flower girl. Her maids beam, too, as bright as the autumn sunshine in strapless gowns of sky-blue satin with fetching white sashes. Weddings are, of course, all about family; the bride pauses for a tender moment at a picture of her mother. The groom, meanwhile, is cool and collected in white tie, having a prenuptial laugh or two with his parents, then strolling the shore with his groomsmen for a bit of fresh air before everyone heads indoors, where the vows are spoken in a church eons old.

Fun times are clearly ahead, as the bride raises her bouquet in triumph on the church steps, then gathers with groups of family and friends for outdoor shots. After a short ride with his new bride in a sleek white Rolls-Royce, the groom leads her onto the floor to start the dancing in a hall filled with hanging white lanterns and colorful lights twinkling from modern chandeliers. The cake, a three-layer tower of creamy white, is cut and shared among the company — in between fun photos of the party and family posing with bright yellow parasols! The bouquet is tossed to eager hands, as is the garter, but the celebrating goes on far into the evening in festivities that unite two families for a lifetime.
