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.

Traditional Jewish Wedding at the Omni Resort in Championsgate, Orlando.

The Omni Resort in Championsgate, Orlando was the perfect venue for Claire and Nathan’s destination wedding. Fun, sun and celebrations starting with round of golf for the boys on one of their two Greg Norman Championship golf courses and ending with a fabulous reception.

For the  ceremonial Sabbath dinner we selected  shades of purple and pink with accents of gold as the color palette for our first celebration of the weekend. Lee Forest Design provided the flowers for all the celebrations.

The brides dress from Boca Raton Bridal was designed by Jasmine Couture . The dress was  Taffeta with a full Rosette skirt. Her veil was made by Tia Mazza.

The celebrations began with the traditional ” Tish” and ” Bedeken“. Dancing and celebrations began as soon as the  groom had the “first look” at his beautiful bride.

The color palette for the ceremony and wedding reception flowers was ivory ,white and dusty pink . Gold belmont chargers , gold chivari chairs and Ivory fortuny linens were used to dress the table’s . The room was uplit was amber lighting. Lighting is really important when planning your wedding and often overlooked. Lighting brings the flowers to life and creates ambiance in the space .

The bride and groom monogram was used throughout the wedding.

The Sweet heart table had a cascading hedge of  flowers. I always like to accent the brides and grooms chairs. A tip , have your decorator move clusters from aisle decor after the ceremony and reuse on back of the chairs.

Cake designed by Ann Paz in Miami.

Thank you to the  catering director, Lindsay Kurtz at the Omni Championsgate . We were a great team and this makes for a great  “stress  free” celebration for everyone. Thank you so much to Claire for taking the time to give my company a ” thumbs up” .

 

Destination Wedding at the Boca Resort and Club in Boca Raton, Florida

If you are planning a destination wedding in South Florida, the Boca Resort and Club in Boca Raton , Florida is the perfect luxury venue for a magnificent wedding. The Cathedral Room overlooking the intercoastal waterway was the perfect ballroom space at the Boca resort for Kimberly and David’s dream wedding . The room was designed by Addison Mizner, the Resort’s founder and architect. It is truly grand with beautiful ceiling detail and gold-leafed pillars making for a truly romantic setting. A perfect option for couples looking for an interesting space as opposed to a standard ballroom within a luxury resort. Credit: Munoz Photography.

The brides dress was custom designed by Rene Ruiz , couture designer in Coral Gables, Miami . She carried a bouquet of white peonies. The bridesmaids carried  plum mini callas which perfectly complimented their dresses.

In contrast to the grand old world architecture in the room , a contemporary design was selected by the bride and groom. An acrylic canopy with a custom motif complimented with a hedge of hanging orchids was designed for the ceremony. The floor plan consisted of a combination of round and royal tables, acrylic chivari chairs and three different centerpieces.
