Suzanne + Steve’s wedding day began at The Boca Raton Resort + Club, one of Boca Raton’s most stunning historic Waldorf Astoria properties.

Had the best time capturing this beautiful, so in love, couple.

Invitations by The Paper Tree, featured engraved names in both English and Hebrew.

The bride readied in a tower suite overlooking the Yacht Club.

Her makeup was artfully applied by artist Donna Moore.

Her bridesmaids helped her into her gorgeous Lazaro gown.

Then on with her sexy Giuseppe Zanotti blush chiffon and gold heeled sandals.

Her “something borrowed” diamond bracelet was the perfect touch.

Voila! As the bride posed for a window front portrait…

Her oh-so-stylish mother entered to share a tender moment with her daughter.

Just in time, the flower girl, and mini-vision-in-tulle arrived just in time to present Suzanne with her lovely bouquet of white orchids.

Daddy stopped by to see his little girl.

After some kisses from her doting parents…

Her sister helped with her train.

And the family headed for the marina.

Meanwhile, the groom was busy getting ready at his parents residence, with help from his mother and father… and a handy iPad bow tie instructional.

A quick toast and male bonding ritual with his groomsmen…

And away they went.

Once dressed, the bride hurried down the hall…

Met her bridesmaids for a formal vanity fair-esque portrait…

Then posed for a portrait session on the fabulous staircase and veranda.

Descending in true Cinderella style.

Once outdoors, she shared some laughs with the girls, dressed in a variety of slate grey gowns by Amsale.

The white and buttercup tulips were the perfect pop with against the dark chiffon.

I just love these two portraits of bride and groom taken prior to their reveal…

At the front of the hotel, Steve and his handsome groomsmen posed for the cameras.

Then the couple readied for their first look at the entrance.

Their first look moment was perfect as they peeked around the corner and raced into each others arms.

Afterwards, we explored the resort during a bridal portrait session.

Midway thru, they met up with the Bridal Party on the great lawn beneath the grand ficus tree.

Then, back to the resort for a spell, before departing for the temple.

The Ketubah signing and wedding ceremony took place at Congregation B’nai Israel.

Following the Bedekan, the ceremony in the round began.

Proud grandparents looked on as they exchanged their vows.

They sealed their union with a kiss…

And exited as Mr. and Mrs. Horwitz.

Lavish cocktails were served after the nuptials.

Over in the ballroom, the finishing touches were being put on the romantically lit reception space.

The party began with a first dance…

Then quickly turned into a spectacular “weddings-gone-wild” horah…

Grandpa gave a blessing, then cut the callah, with some help from the Groom’s dad.

And dinner was served.

In between courses, Suzanne and her Dad’s “father daughter dance” included some very fancy footwork.

Steve shared a dance with his mom.

And Suz tore up the floor with Grandpa.

A guest turn wedding-singer joined Powerhouse on stage.

And in lieu of a toss, the bride presented her sister in law with her bouquet, which what has apparently become a family tradition.

As the night neared its end, the cake was cut.

Then one last dip…

And one last dance.

The end.
