{ sarah + james | a private club | palm beach wedding photography }

Sarah + James’ vintage spring wedding reception was held at a private historic beach club in Palm Beach.

I loved her creative reception details so much, that I felt compelled to blog in reverse.

My favorite, is this antique typewriter, set up for guests to type “love notes” from their guests.

Place cards sat atop little chairs fashioned out of champagne bottle tops.

Cherub centerpieces featured peach pastel garden roses and peonies, by MB Florals, which went great with the columned room.

These cute little antiqued scrolled bride groom signs hung from the couples chairs.

On another table, a white wire birdcage for gift cards sat alongside piles of presents.

Check out this cool connected way to address a gift card.

Their three-tier fondant cake, with sugar rose clusters and pastel ribbons, complimented their vibe perfectly.

As did their yummy favors, with custom stickers, tied in romantic tulle.

Btw, how stunning is this bridesmaid’s bouquet, created by MB Florals by Marjorie Bennett. Love the berries. : )

Strings played at their outdoor cocktail hour.

These cute little pastel straws were a enhancement to their specialty drinks.

Meanwhile, back at the Breakers, Sarah began her special day giving gifts to her bridesmaids.

Adorable cards. : )

A quick toast w/ her bridesmaids and it was time to get ready.

Aren’t these “something blue” Bagdley Mischkas wonderful???

The bride’s vintage lace gown featured cap sleeves and a unique open back.

Her bridemaids, dressed in strapless chiffon knee length dresses, helped her into her gown.

Once ready, the girls all headed out to explore the breakers lush grounds.

What a cute flower girl… bestowing a round bouquet of pastel roses.

Over at The Brazilian Court, James and the boys were prepping, and opening up unique gifts other own.

Then off to Royal Poinciana they went.

The bride arrived at the chapel in this fabulous 1959 Bentley Saloon Mark VI.

A lovely ceremony soon followed.

Not long after, the newlyweds exited as man and wife.

And sealed the deal with another kiss outside the chapel.

Then went back inside to sign the license and wrap up all the official paperwork.

Then grabbed a quick moment on the Seagull Cottage’s staircase…

And out to the Great Banyan Tree they went… to meet up w/ the bridal party for some fun portraits.

Some last minute well wishes…

A champagne toast… then it was off in their vintage Bentley to the beach club for their reception.
