{ jessica + jordon | the breakers | palm beach wedding }

Jessica + Jordon’s fabulous Palm Beach wedding at The Breakers was a vintage inspired masterpiece.

Their engraved invitations by William Arthur, were hand calligraphed, then plated and hand pressed onto thick fine art cards.

Envelopes were wax stamped in a gold initial.

The bridal bouquet, by Michael Ereshena for the Special Event Resource + Design Group, integrated muted pastel and ivory roses and peonies, with the fabric and jewel flowers from the brides gown.

The stems were wrapped in ivory ribbon, and Jessica’s grandmother’s heirloom rosary.

Jessica’s Ines de Santo couture gown was amazing!!! As lovely as it is on the custom, “Mrs. Brees”, hanger, it looked even better on the bride.

The shoes did not disappoint… These Oscar de la Renta satin and pearl poi de souis were worth capturing at every angle.

Her ‘something old/something new” vintage jewelry was all custom created from vintage heirloom jewelry and a few new fine jewels.

The bridesmaids bouquets, were wrapped in a peachy gold ribbon, and from each, hung a locket, featuring the bride and each of her attendants.

The mauve and dusty peach roses were the perfect accent color.

Bridesmaids were also gifted with pearl jewlery, and these great little handcrafted thank you notes were an awesome Etsy.com find.

This array of antique parasols from Bella Umbrellas were designated for each bridesmaid.

We borrowed a tassled one here, to feature the set of wedding rings.

Jessica and the girls readied at their suite at the Breakers. Her hair was done by William Tighe, and her makeup meticulously applied by Joanne from Team Beauti.

Even the champagne glasses were customized by Waterfall Designs.

Following a group toast…

This picture perfect bunch, posed in their matching sundresses and flip flops, prior to getting into their gowns.

The attention to every detail that went into the many months leading up to this wedding was extensive, as were the many parties, showers, grooms breakfast, bridesmaids luncheon, monogram and mimosa party, engagement gala, and more.

With each came an assortment of creative invites.

Finally, it was time to dress the bride-to-be.

Mom helped her daughter on with her earrings.

Then dad stopped by to present her with a special gift… A pearl and diamond bracelet re-designed from his mother’s heirloom jewels.

Once dressed, Jessica posed for a few portraits prior to being veiled, to show off the back of this unbelievable gown.

Next, it was time for the bride’s mother, Luly, to assist with the cathedral length veil.

The lace scallop edging of the veil was a perfect touch.

The little one’s were all super cute in their kiddie couture attire by Jessica Lynn, and matching headbands.

Meanwhile, over in the Groomsmen’s Room, Jordon was also dressing.

He put on the finishing touches, with the help of his mom, and best man/dad.

He tucks in his pocket watch, which he also gifted to his groomsmen…

Then one last check in the mirror…

And quite the dapper portrait.

Back in the bride’s camp… Jessica’s flower girls helped her navigate the hallways, as she and the girls grabbed some portrait time.

Outside in the courtyard, Jordon and his boys, did the same.

Then headed for the beach walk.

On the other side of the resort… Jessica spent some time playing with the little ones.

Then ran off to find her beautiful bridesmaids.

Cut to… the groom and his guys being dwarfed by a mega-tree.

Now, this next series took place out of sequence atop the Breakers beach club, but had the bride-and-groom-to-be, been less traditional, and agreed to a first look… this is how it may have gone…

And here they are at the great fountain with the historic Breakers towers in the distance.

Then off to play on the croquet lawn…

Some time beneath the trellis…

Then to the beach…

This epic shot perched on the rocks as the waves crashed in is one of my favorites.

They finished out their private portrait session in this lovely arched doorway…

Now… back to our original wedding day timeline…

The bride is shown here at the Royal Poinciana Chapel cottage…

Walking down the stairs on her way to the ceremony at the Chapel next door.

Guests were handed programs prior to being seated.

The bride and her dad, arrived in a vintage white rolls.

The organist played…

And daddy escorted his little girl down the aisle.

One last kiss, then he gave her away, as Jordon and his father looked on.

They made vows, lit candles, and exchanged rings…

Then as the touching ceremony came to an end, they exited into the night as husband and wife.

Back at the Breakers, guests enjoyed cocktails in the Mediterranean Ballroom.

Signed in…

And found their placecards… set in these unique gold and pearl card holders, handmade by the bride’s talented mother, Luly.

Notice the matching napkin holders… also hand crafted, sitting atop the vintage plate.

The stunning reception event, coordinated by the Breakers Kym Bichon, was set in the Venetian Ballroom.

Decorated by the always fabulous Special Event Resource + Design Group, the room was transformed into candlelit romance, dripping in soft petals and crystal chandeliers.

Assorted julip cups featured tulips, tea roses, lavender and more.

Gold Chiavari chairs with coral cushions, were covered in antique lace sheers.

The towering 6-tier wedding cake, was created by the Breakers master pastry chef.

Each guest had a different unique plate before them, along with a vintage embroidered napkin.

The newlyweds made a grand entrance…

Then shared a first dance as husband and wife, as the spectacular night began.

Toasts were made…

and Honor Dances brought tears to the eyes.

There were surprise performances…

Some crazy dance moments…

Garters were removed…

Bouquets were tossed…

Cakes were cut…

and Glasses were clinked.

Following the bride and groom’s good night speech…

The couple stole away for some late night portraits…

Then went off they went in their vintage Rolls.

The end.

    I am more then amazed by the beautiful pictures, and so many of them, i felt like i was there to share most all of the beauty and joy . I especially enjoyed the table settings and floral arrangements for the dinner.
    What was the china that was used? I would have liked to have seen the pattern .
    Congratulations to the bride and groom and all of the wedding party
    to have the patience for all the whims of the photographer’s artistic
    visions. The wedding planners , I feel it must have been the foremost
    designers in the world , there could not be a more beautiful Wedding.
    Congratulations again to Lily and Warren Prescott and to Linda and Gene Brees the Parents of the Bride and Groom. And a great thank you to
    Jordan ,s Grandfather Richard Kiel for making these available to me.
    Sincerely Great Aunt Gloria Kiel Hanson
