• Welcome to the blog of Luxe Fête. We are a full service international event planning and design studio based in Miami, Florida. Global clients seek our services to plan, design, and produce their events. We have executed events around the world, with much of our work featured in national publications. Before channeling my creative energy into this field, I was an attorney at top law firms and clerked for a Federal Judge. It did not take long to realize I’d rather be telling stories by transforming spaces and creating beautiful atmospheres. Stay awhile - we would love to hear from you! Nous aimerions entendre parler de vous! Nos encantaría saber de usted! Gostaríamos muito de ouvir de você! Be sure to also visit our website: www.luxefete.com

Astrid and Andy Feature in Weddings Illustrated

“The day of our wedding, my husband and I worried about nothing, says Astrid. “Our only job was to enjoy ourselves. And we did!” It makes me so proud to see these words in print. Astrid and Andy’s celebration was truly a pleasure to be a part of. Let’s see:

The prettiest church in Miami? Check.

The most authentic and fun couple? Check.

Beautiful people from Europe and Venezuela dancing the night/morning away as if it were Carnival in Brazil? Check.

A group of Venezuelan boys teaching me some fancy salsa moves at 5:30 a.m.? Check.

A grand and historic venue? Check.

Incredible drinks, food and desserts (particularly the alfajores) . Check.

I love my job. Thank you Weddings Illustrated for featuring Astrid and Andy’s Spanish-inspired Wedding. And thank you to my awesome team of vendors for making it happen.

I would be remised not to take the time to send a special hello to Astrid’s family and friends in Venezuela. Thinking of you all during these urgent times and praying for change soon. We see you!

Marystratton - Now this is what I call a wedding planning. Those flowers on dining table look so good and elegant.

The Dream Team


“The only thing more powerful than a big idea is the team that can see it through.”

No idea or dream too big for this team.

Nathalie Cadet-James - Charmaine, we can’t thank you enough for taking the time to share these kind words. You made our day lady! We are thrilled you enjoyed Kristin and Andrew’s wedding. They are such a wonderful couple. One of the easiest ways for us to see this, is by their guests – like you! Many thanks again.

Charmaine - I was at Kristin’s and Andrew’s wedding on Oct 18, 2014 and when asked – how was it? My immediate and one response was “Flawless!!!!”

This is what a team does…this is how a wedding day should be!

Congrats to you all. I watched the team working efficiently perhaps with a more critical eye than most, as I am Kristin’s mother’s Exec Assistant and I know what they expect.

Can I say it again? Truly FLAWLESS execution!!!

Dr. Abbie’s 50th Birthday Party Pictures

Years ago, we dreamed of producing an event at this Frank Gehry architectural gem, the New World Center (Inspired by: New World Symphony). So lucky to have had the talented Gesi Schilling capture this moment. We’re happy to share these breathtaking photos of Abbie’s 50th birthday celebration. We told you about this fabulous event here, so now enjoy the pictures. Still have yet to come across a better rooftop view in Miami!
