Lauren and Josh, from Miami, wanted to throw the ultimate destination wedding for their guests. For the Friday “welcome dinner,” guests were told only to wear white, and rather than a traditional sit down dinner, they were instead surprised with a Neon Carnival only dreams are made of. There were plenty of other surprises throughout the weekend, including gift baskets themed for each event, and the most fantastic after party following the dinner reception.
