Lauren + Eddie’s country club wedding took place at the picturesque Frenchman’s Reserve in Palm Beach Gardens.

Earlier in the day, Lauren readied at Frenchmen’s Reserves magnificent bridal suite.

Her Jim Hjelm couture gown was stunning, with it’s beaded taupe sash.

Pink and White peonies and Ivory Roses were featured in her bridal bouquet created by Le Jardin Florals.

Deb from Team Beauti, did an amazing job… just look at those eyes and flawless skin!!!

Here the girls, in their matching Victoria Secret aqua short sets, have a bit of fun before helping Lauren into her gown.

Okay, is he the cutest thing ever!!!! He totally has his mommy’s eyes.

Lauren’s mom helps her with the finishing touches.

Dad stops in for a quick kiss from his little girl.

The ring bearer lends a hand.

Then delivers his mom her pretty flowers.

I love this shot.

The bridesmaid’s dresses by BCBG, were sexy, yet sophisticated.  They are, by far, my favorite short dresses from any wedding I have shot to date.

They were a perfect match to the brides taupe/pewter belt.

Little Eddie Jr. got caught up in Mom’s veil, then stole a quick kiss before posing for the camera with his little ring box.

Soon it was time to head to the trolley.

Church bound… Dad shares some last minute advice with the bride to be.

Meanwhile, Eddie and the boys were busy getting ready in Jupiter.

A father and son portrait.

And a mother and son moment.

The groom and his guys took some quick portraits, then headed to St. Judes.

The bride shares a moment with her flower girl.

The moms light the candles.

And Lauren and her dad head down the aisle.

The ceremony was lovely, and the light and reflective marble shot beautifully.

After a full mass, the couple emerged as husband and wife.

The stain glass windows made for a great backdrop.

Afterwards, they ventured out, braving the raindrops…

And made a quick stop at the Marina to visit the Groom’s other love…

His Boat!!!!  (see it in the background)

Then back on the trolley enroute to Frenchman’s Reserve for some photo ops with the bridal party.

Hmmmm… What are these boyz doing in this fountain???

Clearly, the girls can’t contain their laughter at their crazy antics.

What a beautiful bridal party. : )

Guests arrived to enjoy cocktails in the library.

Followed by the reception in the ballroom.

The newlyweds shared a first dance as the crowd applauded.

Dad gave a heartfelt speech.

Glasses were raised.

Honor dances were had.

Cake was cut.

And served. : )

Homemade cookies were enjoyed.

Bouquet’s and garters were tossed.

Then everybody danced, danced, danced.

As the night came to an end, the couple stole away to share a quiet moment together.

The groom HAPPILY serenaded his bride. Awww. How sweet is he???

Then, they shared one last romantic dance.

The end.
