Stephanie + Ryan’s wedding reception was held at the exclusive Trump National, Jupiter. The bride was stunning in a Monique Lhullier gown.

Following traditional nuptials at St. Patrick Catholic Church, guests enjoyed cocktails at sunset on the veranda overlooking Trump National’s golf course.

The reception dinner in the new ballroom, was coordinated by Jaime Mucciolo for Love Grace Weddings + Events and managed by Nancy Salatto Deighan for Trump National. The event featured décor by Special Event Resource + Design Group in a beautiful plumb, magenta and orange palette.

Jeannette + T.J.’s waterfront wedding, was held lakeside at PGA National Resort + Spa.

The event was coordinated to perfection by Bettina Benizri of Busy Bee’s Events… twice actually… as this relocated “hurricane weekend” event was re-invented and moved inland in record time, after Palm Beach Island was evacuated and the closed.

Special thank you to Nickole D’Angelo, Anna Erickson , the PGA staff and all of the vendors for bringing this together so quickly amidst the chaos of nature.

By Saturday, beneath sunny blue skies, the bride ( dressed in a Morilee lace couture gown by Madeline Gardner) was escorted down the aisle by her dapper blue eyed daddy, right into the arms of her smiling groom.

The reception space featured room decor, by Celebrations by Kathy and Dalsimer Atlas Florals + Events with white draping, blush uplighting, candles, and florals atop mercury glass vases.

Loved their romantic 4-tier ivory “paisley + pearl” fondant cake by Johnson’s Custom Cakes and the cute JENGA sign in idea. Each guest left little custom messages written on a personalized wodden Jenga set. So creative!

{ leah + michael | the seagate hotel + spa | delray beach club | wedding photography }

Leah + Michael’s wedding day began at The Seagate Hotel + Spa, a luxury boutique hotel in downtown Delray Beach.

The bride was breathtaking in a couture gown by Essense of Australia. Her bridesmaids dressed in pink champagne, and the adorable flower girl in ivory tulle.

The four-legged ring bearer was simply too cute for words, and even got to be part of the first look, as the bride headed to her groom, with fur baby in tow, on a fabulous floral leafed leash.

Soon after arriving at the Delray Beach Club, the skies opened and last minute raindrops rerouted the ceremony, but love abounded, as the guests encircled the soon-to-be newlyweds for their touching nuptials. Cocktails and reception followed, featuring romantic décor by Marjorie Bennet for MB Custom Florals and a 4-tiered fondant + spun sugar cake by Johnson’s Custom Cakes.
