Real Weddings, A Palm Beach Wedding

After receiving such a large response to our Unique Wedding Locations blog post and getting many requests to hear more about weddings that we have planned at the Flagler Museum, we wanted to give everyone a closer look at one of the fabulous weddings that took place there.

From the ceremony to the reception, this wedding was absolutely breathtaking. Surrounded by beautiful architecture, exceptional food, and lively entertainment, the bride, groom and their guests were able to dance the night away in one of the most majestic settings on Palm Beach Island.

Wedding in Palm Beach at the Flagler Museum

The Flagler Museum in Palm Beach is the most breathtaking venue for a wedding. When the bride visited the museum she immediately knew this is where she was going to get married. Her nuptials took place at the Historic St. Ann  Catholic Church in West Palm Beach equally as beautiful situated a short distance from the Flagler Museum. The color palette of her wedding was ivory and blush with gold accents. Thank you to The Big Day Wedding Photography for the images which tell the story which began with the stunning engagement pictures.

All tables were names after the couples favorite destinations.

The cake was custom designed by the bride.

The bride and groom wanted their guests to have fun . Each place setting had a  note card with a different question that guests had to complete for their memory book.  On the backside of the menu card was a thank you note and 10 ” fun facts” about the couple .

The guests were served with cookies and milk and wedding cake in martini glasses with an assortment of toppings you could select to “dress the cake”.
