The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort was the chosen venue for Maura + Zachary’s fabulous destination wedding.

The reception space, was coordinated by planner Jamie Lipman for Absolute Events, and directed by Nancy Brenner for the St. Regis.

Décor + florals by Petal Productions transformed the space. Awash in lavender hues, cascading orchids + floating votives, pastel florals + mercury candelabras created stunning table scapes.

I am rarely a guest at weddings anymore, however, this New Years Eve, I attended Daryl + Dawn’s intimate lakeside wedding as just that. Still, old habits die hard, so, knowing they did not have a professional photographer on hand… I, of course, brought along a camera.

An hour before their sunset ceremony on the Pier at Evergrene I whisked them away for a surprise bridal photo shoot!!! Even captured some key moments as the two exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony, in the center of the 36 acre lake. What a perfect way for a beautiful couple to end the New Year and begin their new life together!

Jaclyn + Daniel’s Turnberry Isle wedding in Miami was all about the romance. The couples first look on this epic spiral staircase was my favorite ever. Shot from above, Jaclyn glided dowm, with her lace embroidered cathedral veil trailing behind, right into Daniel’s arms.

This “December to Remember” event featured bold holiday RED florals, RED satin jeweled Manolo Blahniks, and RED bridesmaids gowns. The bride wore a stunning Ines DiSanto couture gown and of course, classic RED Chanel lips!!!

Later that evening, the ceremony was held in the temple at Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, with cocktails and reception, organized by event planner Lori Kelly, following.

Florals and Décor by Corinne Abuaram for Blooming Events, transformed the space. Gold chiavari chairs surrounded tables set in crystal candelabras, and gold centerpieces featured dripping ivy and white orchids in a blush lit room. An Ana Paz 5-tiered, 14k gold accented fondant wedding cake added a touch of nostalgia, with a Lladro statuette which years before stood a top the bride’s parents cake.

Holiday time at The Breakers in Palm Beach is always magical, however, this December we had the honor of capturing this stunning “One People, Many Nations” Ancestry Ball hosted by The Newtons.

To commemorate author Lydia Newton’s half-decade milestone, she and her husband Lendell privately celebrated as they readied earlier in the day with a fab 14k Gold cake, which simply read, Happy Birthday to Me!

She blew out her candles in private, humbly disclosing her wish not to distract from her Ancestry Ball later that evening by focusing on her 50th Birthday.

As the sun set, five dozen couples arrived at the white tie event via limousine dressed in formal attire representing their heritage, and sailed down the red-carpet en-route to the cocktail reception overlooking the ocean.

The Magnolia Room was set for a five-course dinner, planned to perfection by Event Manager Sascha LaGreca for the Breakers. The space, featuring parallel kings tables, was a vision of elegance. Lit with crystal candelabras, dripping floral décor by The Design Studio at the Breakers filled the room. A harpist and flutist played the classics as they dined.

Following dinner, a violinist escorted the guests through the hotel playing as they made their way to the ball, in the Gold room, complete with a reflective 14k gold dance floor.

Desserts from around the globe were served…

Formal introductions were made…

And an orchestra of strings and horns played, as guests danced the night away… ballroom danced that is.

Several surprise guest performances lit up the floor throughout the night.

It was a unique and exquisite evening, ending w. a roof raising moment of praise for all their blessings.

Katie and Cody’s wedding at the new Wyndham Grand Jupiter at Harbourside Place was the perfect combination of modern décor meets soft romance. We had such fun discovering all the fabulous locations to shoot at this great new Jupiter waterfront property. Jennifer Timpano and her staff were wonderful!

The ceremony was held on the veranda overlooking the intercoastal waterway. Florals and Décor by Lara’s Theme Floral + Event Planning, added magic to both spaces. The simple and elegant triple tiered butter creme wedding cake by Earth + Sugar, was so beautiful it belonged on the cover of a magazine.
