The queen of peels gets hitched.

Marya Khalil, CEO and President of VI Aesthetics gets married! VI Aesthetics are the creators of the FIRST and Only Completely Painless Peel. For over a decade, world-renowned doctors like Jason Emers, Garth Fisher and Sonia Batra who treat A-list patients have all turned to the VI Peel. For years women have prepared for the perfect wedding skin by visiting their local dermatologists and asking for a peel to brighten, enhance and perfect their existing skin condition.

The VI Peel was first created by doctor to the stars, Dr. Abdala Khalil. He created the peel for his daughter, Marya, in the hopes of clearing her teenage acne. Now the little girl who he created it for is running the company. After her father’s passing three years ago, Marya stepped up to take on her father’s legacy.

Marya Khalil married producer, Dylan Otto, at the historic Vizcaya in Miami. Their three-day wedding was magical, with a Cuban Romantic theme. Everything was perfect for the VI Peel queen, with natural and romantic floral designs consisting of garden roses, ranunculus, and white peonies with seeded eucalyptus. The ceremony and reception were decorated in creamy whites and soft neutral tones of ivory and almond blush throughout.

At the reception a three-tier wedding cake awaited the couple in a glowing tent, just off the water. A flower wall and cigar roller gave guests a good time while dancing under the stars. Guests feasted on bites made with an incorporation of Lebanese and Jewish flavors, which celebrated both Khalil and Otto’s cultural heritage. Khalil’s mother is Cuban and her father was Lebanese. The groom’s family is Jewish, so the menu included bites such as “Matzo Ball Soup shots,” “Mini Reubens with half sour pickle garnish,” and “Potato Latkes with caramelized pork belly and Siracha,” to name a few.
