Samantha & Oscar’s Wedding at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle

Posted on August 23, 2010


I had the pleasure of photographing Samantha and Oscar’s magnificent wedding at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle in Aventura. According to the bride, they opted to have their wedding at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle because they loved the grounds and the atmosphere. They were also impressed with Annette Winkler, the catering director there for her professionalism and attention to detail. They knew they were in good hands and that everything would run smoothly.



Selecting the perfect vendors was really important for Samantha and Oscar. They wanted to work with people with whom they not only felt comfortable with, but whom they also trusted would do an amazing job for them. Flowers by Tony created the romantic ambiance that Samantha really wanted. He created two different centerpieces featuring white flowers – one was a ball of roses, hydrangeas, calla lilies and orchids that sat atop a glass cylinder filled with candles. The other was a variation on the first arrangement, but placed in branches and crystals. Trees were also placed throughout the reception that coordinated with the centerpieces.



Samantha and Oscar originally met through a childhood friend of Samantha’s. They became best friends for about a year before they began dating, and now – here they were – having the most incredible wedding at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle! Oscar looked very “official” in his Coast Guard uniform and Samantha was a knockout in a sweetheart, strapless Lazaro gown she purchased at Chic Parisien on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. The shoes she chose, also from Chic Parisien, were open toe sandals with crystals covering the front strap.








Soul Survivors, from Chase Music, rocked the reception for hours! The dance floor was constantly packed with guests who couldn’t resist the temptation to get up and dance the night away. Great music is so important and Soul Survivors never disappoints – their energy is all you need to create an amazing party atmosphere.










Samantha and Oscar were so much fun to work with, as I think is evident in these photos. We had a great time roaming the magnificent grounds of the Fairmont Turnberry Isle, creating amazing wedding photos! Thanks to both bride and groom for allowing me to part of this most memorable and fun event!
