hero and goddess

From Vanessa Velez Photography “If the goddess Athena and a Grecian warrior and hero had a secret romance this is what it would look like to us. In the midst of the forbidden you would find two passionate souls intertwined as one. A very intimate feel, a tie between the simple with the lush.

A palette of pastels with touches of antique gold and deep colors here and there to play off our red head goddess and the beautiful tanned skin of our hero, our warrior!”

From Vanessa Velez Photography – “In a tucked away Gem in Miami Beach Women’s Club with the beautiful exotic doors and shutters to frame our shoot, it was a huge inspiration for our intimate feel. We created a space filled with mood with candles, lush flowers and unique furniture pieces.

Sadrine Boisson from Maison Frances designed florals that where rich in color and textures to match the scene styled by Soco Alicea and myself. And our gorgeous cake inspired on Olympus was a perfect match!”
