trends SURF, TURF AND BUBBLY My culinary inspiration is a seafood extravaganza, with caviar, shrimp and a raw bar to start. Dinner would be grilled stuffed lobster tail with avocado and papaya tropical salsa, and fillet medallions served with salads of hearts of palm, avocado and guava. The perfect pairings? Champagne cocktails and a signature daiquiri. GLAM ACCENTS I'd accessorize with art deco in mind. Fayme sandal ($995), by Jimmy Choo (jimmychoo.com). The Muse THE ULTIMATE TASTEMAKER, MARK INGRAM, SHARES HIS VISION FOR A CHIC, 1940S-INSPIRED AFFAIR Mark Ingram, owner and namesake of Mark Ingram Atelier, carefully edits the gowns in his boutique, only showcasing the most exquisite collection. So we knew we could count on him to hand-pick the details for the perfect, elegant evening. Here, he shares his take on a glamorous, 1940s-inspired soiree. FLORIDA FLAIR For a Miami wedding, I love the idea of an Old Hollywood glamour theme, inspired by the era's fresh-faced beauties, such as Esther Williams, Lena Horne and Lauren Bacall. COLOR THEORY I would decorate the space like a vintage luxury ocean liner, inspired by the SS Normandie. A color palette of white, ivory, navy, hibiscus coral and palm green perfectly marries the nautical theme with Miami's tropical energy. YES TO THE DRESS For the bride, I envision this spectacular V-neck gown by Inbal Dror (for stores, visit inbaldror.com). The groom and his groomsmen would wear navy blazers with cream trousers, ascots and gardenia boutonnières. HOW INVITING BEACH BLISS The venue: The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach. The Atlantic Ocean is the hotel's sparkling backyard, and the timeless property and its elegant gardens are casually exquisite. 22 W E D D I N G S B Y T H E R I T Z - C A R LT O N This sophisticated suite, festooned with tropical watercolor flowers, would give guests a glimpse of the evening long before it arrives.
