Frenchman’s Reserve Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens, was the setting for Denise and Ryan’s fabulous country club affair.

I just loved the color scheme… the maize yellow combined with various shades of blue ran throughout the event.


Denise and Ryan were a stunning couple.

The bride’s Melissa Sweet bridal gown by Priscilla of Boston was elegant, as were the Stuart Weitzman open toed pou de soies.

Ryan and the guys soon headed off the the church…


While, the bride reflected on the day ahead.


The ceremony was held at St. Patrick Church in Palm Beach Gardens.




A string quartet serenaded the guests as the father of the groom escorted both mothers down the aisle.

The Father of the Bride got one last kiss before his little girl before giving her away.
