Meet Jaime Lorenzoni owner of!

Meet Florida based interior designer and wedding fashion aficionado Jaime Lorenzoni, owner of!

Hailing from Landenberg Pennsylvania Jaime graduated from Laroche College with her degree in Interior Design and soon moved to Hawaii to live her dream working for a design firm.

Jaime soon found that design, in this capacity, was not the highest of the dreams that she wished to live up to. Her inner fashionista could not be satisfied and so she moved herself to Palm Beach Gardens Florida to start Champagne and Grit – her passionate endeavor to create a company of beautiful and unique wedding fashion accessories.

I emailed Jaime to ask if we could feature some of her favorite accessories on our blog and she was all to happy to send over some of her favorite pieces.

Here at Modern Era Weddings we not only have an eye for but also a great admiration and respect towards those unique individuals who strive to add more beauty and magic into a wedding ceremony. We simply had to feature Jaime on our blog and since we’ve recently opened up shop in Miami Florida hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to feature some of Jaime’s work on the necks, heads and hearts of the brides of our upcoming weddings as well.

Modern Era Weddings Presents: La Hora Loca Wedding!

When we came upon the La Hora Loca wedding in 2016 at a bridal show in Florida we knew this was a wedding package our brides-to-be back home could no longer do without. For a year we strove to perfect this experience by creating the Pittsburgh Circus Arts Collaborative with the goal in mind to turn future weddings into masquerade masterpieces of Samba dancers, stilt-walkers, juggling and drums! Confetti cannons, glow wands and masks! It is with great appreciation to The Pittsburgh Samba Group, to Josh Mariana for his fantastic photography and congratulations to newlyweds Melissa and Anthony Caruso that I present to you our finished product. Our collaborative La Hora Loca wedding was a spectacular success!

La Hora Loca (The Crazy Hour) is the South American tradition reminiscent of Brazilian Carnaval and Mardi Gras. Only more condensed, personal. A miniature elaborate celebration – within your celebration…

We here at Modern Era Weddings with The Pittsburgh Circus Arts Collaborative offer La Hora Loca Wedding packages in traditional Latin Carnival style, Neon, Romani Circus and Traditional Circus style!

Interested in seeing if La Hora Loca is right for your wedding? Head over to our contact-us section and let us know that you want circus arts performers for your wedding!

La Hora Loca is what you call a moveable feast or a floating holiday making it perfect for any event you can think of! Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, corporate events, holiday parties, Quinceañeras, wakes, birthdays, anniversaries or, honestly, just about any celebration you can imagine is destined to become a La Hora Loca!

Imagine your celebration! Halfway through the dancing you hear the pounding of rhythmic drums as in storms a gaggle of Samba dancers, stilt walkers, drummers and jugglers. Masquerade Masks are passed out amongst the guests and confetti cannons fill the air with cascading colors!

Congratulations again to our newlyweds Melissa and Anthony Caruso and thank you again to Josh Mariana, The Pittsburgh Samba Group and our entire La Hora Loca team!

Book your La Hora Loca wedding today with Modern Era Weddings and The Pittsburgh Circus Arts Collaborative!
