Lisa + Josh’s wedding at The Breakers, Palm Beach was a truly elegant affair.

Lisa’s floral appliquéd couture gown was absolutely gorgeous.

Her something blue was a custom embroidered monogram, complete with wedding date.

The bride’s silver Stuart Weitzman strappy sandals were super cute.

But her breathtaking peony bridal bouquet, created by Cameron Keating of the Design Studio at The Breakers, was one of my favorite details.

After the bride’s makeup was complete…

Her attendant’s helped her dress.

The rhinestone belt, designed by Maria Elena, was the perfect touch.

Once the dressing was complete, Lisa and her girls, in their slate chiffon knee length dresses, took a moment to enjoy the view.

These ivory and antique mauve roses looked amazing with their grey hues.

Mom helped her daughter on with her cathedral veil.

Dad dropped by for a moment with his little girl…

Then posed for a family portrait.

Here Lisa poses in true Vouge style, at one of the Breakers most epic doors.

Meanwhile, Josh was busy getting ready with his parents’ assistance.

Then headed out for some portraits of his own, with his brother and groomsmen.

Josh’s niece, aka: the adorable flower girl, joined the big girls as they made their way towards the shops.

A quick greeting from her oh so dapper young ring bearer/soon to be nephew.

And again, her precious flower girl.

A few more model moments…

Then it was off to her groom-to-be for their first look at the grand fountain.

After the big reveal, they met their bridal party beneath the pergola for a bit of group photo fun.

Soon it was time for the Ketubah signing with the immediate family gathered round.

Due to heavy winds, the ceremony was moved indoors, into The Circle, one of the five star resorts most stunning ballrooms, and decorated to the nines, by The Breakers Design Studio.

Female guests were each gifted with Pashmina shawls.

With a special note attached.

The amber lighting was beautiful… And special spotting made a faux-petal pattern down the aisle. {Albeit a photographer’s nightmare…shooting into spotlights is never fun.}

But that didn’t stop us from capturing the arrivals for these two cuties.

Josh, escorted by his parents followed.

And soon his bride. I love this shot of Lisa waiting in the wings.

Down the aisle, to her mom and dad, who met her half way.

Then together, deliver her right into Josh’s waiting arms.

His expression spoke volumes.

A greeting from the Rabbi…

Then the ceremony began beneath the amber lit Chuppah…

Their ring exchange was very special, as you can see, it was no ordinary ring.

Then came the kiss…

The breaking of the glass…

And they exited as husband and wife.

As the guests took their place cards, and enjoyed cocktails, the newlyweds went off for some private time.

The Mediterranean Ballroom was the site of the reception, masterfully coordinated by Kym Bichon, Assoc. Director of Catering for the Breakers.

The to-die-for architecture in this room is a photographer’s dream!

The tables were lavishly decorated, again by the uber-talented Breaker’s Design Studio.

The Wedding cake, a 5-tier fondant covered confectionary creation, was courtesy of the Breakers fabulous Pastry Chef.

Soon the bride and groom made their grand entrance, as their guests looked on.

After a first dance beneath the painted clouds…

Mom and Dad made a heartfelt speech…

Followed by the Horah…

And lot’s of dancing…

Then came a speech from Josh’s sister…

And his most entertaining brother…

Complete with entourage…

Ending in a giant group hug around the happy couple.

Between courses, there was a tender dance with dad…

Then Josh took to the floor with his mother…

Showing off their impressive ballroom moves.

A last word from the Bride and Groom…

Then it was time to cut the towering cake.

For dessert, guests enjoyed gourmet chocolate-covered-banana splits, as white gloved waiters arrived to hand pour hot fudge and caramel toppings. Yum!

As the night came to a close, the newlyweds stole away with us for some end of night portraits.

On the way out, we couldn’t help but stop in the lobby first. Just look at those ceilings, who could resist.

Then out the front doors…

To view the shadows of the moon…

In each other’s arms.

The end.
