When Toronto couple Jennifer Colalillo and Michael Ettorre got engaged it was the beginning to a grand adventure which would take them a quarter of the way around the world to the Versace Mansion formally known as The Villa Casa Casuarina in Miami Beach, Florida.
A hard working couple, with Jen running her own health and wellness business called The Raw Green Chica and Mike working for the Toronto Real Estate Board, the thought of getting away to say ” I do” sounded ideal. This cool couple also wanted to do something special for 100 of their closest friends and family so for their wedding they flew them from Toronto to Miami beach’s Fountainebleau. Since there is no reason to go small on vacation Jen and Mike stayed in only the finest rooftop suite that the Miami hotel had to offer. Utilizing their beautiful rooftop balcony over looking South Beach, they held a superior cocktail party filled with fun, friends, family and who can forget food to get everyone ready for the next days celebrations.
As the sun rose over the ocean the next morning, Jen and her bridesmaids left the hotel and made their way to the one and only, elegant Versace Mansion. Arriving at the breathtaking mansion they made their way to the Villa suite, a room that is truly made for a princess with its mural-covered walls and decadent king-sized bed. Within the magic of the mansion Jen became a stunning bride as she slide on her Christian Louboutin heels and laced up her crystal accented dress, ready to walk down the isle.
In the middle of the Versace mansion’s mosaic flooring, an intimate stage surrounded by guests, watched the elegant bride meet her groom to exchange their vows. Soon the chairs were moved away to let the party begin. To stay true to their go big nature, Jen and Mike were joined on the dance floor by exotic dancers, and a colourful Caribbean style party featuring Toronto DJ Melissa from Sound X Entertainment, who rocked late into the night to make sure the party was done right.
