Creating Kierra’s 9th Birthday Luau, with tropical décor by both MB Custom Florals, Special Event Resource + Design Group, Art by Gayle, and fabulous sweets by Johnson’s Custom Cakes was super fun!

The event took place at the Palm Beach Gardens Aquatic Complex, as the young guests were looking forward to a day of waterpark fun. Unfortunately, the Labor Day storm quickly re-routed the party indoors, but still there were crafts, face painting, and fun games.. like the aloha hop, tiki toss, and limbo to fill the day, along w. a Hawaiian themed lunch and yummy desserts!!!

Special thanks to Jennifer Johnson, Marjorie Bennett, Kimberly + Andrew Farah, and Gayle and Frank Pulice for sharing their creative talents. You Rock!!!

Sara + Fredy’s fine art engagement session, took place on a rainy day, as they were weekend guests at The EAU Palm Beach. Since we were limited to their suite and private cabana, we improvised and captured some fun but artsy moments.

Can’t wait to capture their Four Seasons wedding!!!

After exchanging their vows at First Baptist Church, the couple took to the beach for some photo fun with their wedding party, followed by cocktails and reception. In keeping with the beachfront locale, tables were named after the couples favorite beaches, and cute customized jelly jar mugs served as both place cards and favors.

Edith + Patrick’s spectacular vintage travel inspired wedding, held at PGA National Resort pulled out all the stops. The decor, a collaboration between Creations Event Design and A Partique Event Boutique, integrated antique cameras and vintage furniture + props throughout.

The travel theme was beautifully interwoven into the event from the aisle runner emblazoned with gold map coordinates of the couples home locales, to the place card table, which beckoned ‘where in the world are you sitting, sign in globes, and vintage ‘leave a note’ postcards from paris to london? Even the passport styled programs wrapped in white leather passport holder keepsakes. Not to mention the fabulous compass invites, and a chocolate + gold wedding cake replicating stacks of vintage luggage, by pastry chef extraordinaire, Jennifer Johnson, of Johnson’s Custom Cakes.

How do you get a wedding this creative? It helps if the bride is a professional event planner herself!!!
