{ jill + sean | ritz-carlton, palm beach wedding }

Jill & Sean’s had the most beautiful, intimate, seaside wedding at The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach in Manalapan.

The couple traveled from Kentucky, and planned the perfect destination event, with their immediate family and closest friends in attendance.

The stunning wedding table, created by Xquisite Events, was tented in chiffon, overlooking the ocean.

The bride and groom’s chairs were ruched to the ground in white fabric an belted with rhinestone buckled sashes…

Multi leveled jewel encrusted candle holders, combined with white roses and silver candelabras, completed the romance. Guest chairs were gold chiavari, with silk organza and pearl covers.

Below the hanging crystal chandeliers, was a sheer table overlay, hand embroidered with metalic silk beadwork.

Custom menu placecards, were wrapped in rhinestone belts, and sat upon on a jeweled charger.

The bride and groom, photographed at the Ritz’ “EAU SPA” courtyard were just as stylish as their breathtaking setting.

The bouquet of white orchids, had rhinestone centers, and wrappings.

Jill’s sophisticated couture gown was designed by Jenny Yoo.

Her pearled bowed sandals, by Kate Spade, were just the right touch for a beach wedding.

The bride’s cushion cut engagement ring is simply to die for.

While I captured her details, my associate photographer Maja met the bride to be at Eau Spa for her hair and makeup.

Once back at the suite, Jill reflected a moment beside her luxurious roman tub.

In a nearby bungalow, the Groom got ready with his best man.

Then posed for a quick portrait.

Back at the bridal suite, Jill readied with the help of her bridesmaids…

And her super stylish, stunning mom.

Once dressed and veiled she was a vision.

Oh, and isn’t that a great pearl and diamond bracelet? Love it!

Mom looked on as her daughter took one last look in the private cabana’s mirror.

Her bridesmaids wore cocktail length dresses, in a fabulous eggplant color.

The super cute flowergirl, donned a garland of purple orchids in her hair.

She even showed the bride how to twirl like a ballerina.

The girls all waited in the Eau Spa gardens for the reveal.

As Jill took a quick Vouge worthy portrait.

Over by the oceanside cabanas, the groom, posed like he belonged on the cover or GQ.

The guys got in on the act, as did the adorable ring bearer, mirroring the groom to be.

Mom stopped by for a hug and a kiss.

So did his precious little blue-eyed boy, just waking up from his nap.

Back at the spa, the girls headed to the round domed foyer for the first look.

Here comes the bride…

Jill was mesmerizing. Sean couldn’t couldn’t take his eyes off of her.

Off to the courtyard for some portraits…

A quick game of garden chess.

A veiled kiss…

A hug…

and a heartfelt laugh.

Then off to the beach for a cozy oceanfront ceremony. The trio played.

The groom and officiant waited.

The flower girl petaled her way down the stairs.

The bride and her dad soon followed.

They exchanged vows…

and filled the crystal heart with colored sands.

Guests captured mementos…

As the couple exchanged rings…

Permission to kiss the bride followed…

Then a moment of sheer delight!

A group toast, led by the littlest party goer.

Then a joyful, “1-2-3 Whee!”…

And as the sun set, the couple was off to join their guests for cocktails.

The Ritz-Carlton’s, wonderful staff, headed by catering director Mandy Conner, readied
the intimate candlelit dinner.

The cake was put in place, and the guests arrived.

Each menu was customized with the guest’s names, as they took their seats.

The couple’s first dance was magical.

They Toasted…


& Indulged in a yummy color-coordinated candybar.

The night ended with the cutting of the cake.

And a candlelit kiss.

Then off went the bride and groom in a classic orange BMW convertibe…

{or rather, the confectionary replica, created by the Ritz’s talented pastry chef.}
