Caroline + Ricardo’s beautifully intimate wedding was held at The Addison in Boca Raton.

Earlier in the day, Caroline’s gorgeous white floral bouquet of calla lilies, roses and orchids, created by Daniel Events, was delivered to her Boca Resort tower suite.

The theme was Parisian-flaired, and these black and taupe letterpress invitations by It’s My Party, were a perfect choice.

I love the unique shape of the envelope, lined in pinstriped black taffeta.

The bride readied at the picturesque Boca Raton Resort + Club. Love these doors.

The groom, at his parents Palm Beach waterfront mansion.

Her gown by Bridal Couture, was off white lace with beadwork at the waist.

Her shoes, by Nina, were the perfect heel height for dancing.

After her make-up and hair styling, by Zuila for Touch of Style, was complete…

Her brother helped get her gown, into the capable hands of the bride’s mother and aunt who both assisted her with dressing.

On with the shoes and garter…

And voila!

An approving look from her brother…

Followed by some mother daughter time, as she fixes the veil, just right.

A tender moment with dad.

And a picture perfect bride…

is ready to be photographed.

Meanwhile, over at his parents palm beach home, Ricardo gets himself into his tie and cufflinks.

Then dad assists with the jacket.

Followed by some simulatneous love from his parents.

He reflects…

She reflects…

Okay… poignant moment over… Time for the bride’s fashion shoot… Love this shot…

This indoor fountain area is my new “favorite place” to shoot at this resort, with its beamed ceilings and cool chandeliers.

The bride’s cathedral veil was 15 feet long, and though great for pictures, it was a bit unruly with no bridesmaids to assist.

Fortunately, this little one happened along with an offer to lend a hand.

Back in Palm Beach, Ricardo and his family enjoyed some pre-ceremony photo fun.

With mom…

And his loving sisters.

Dad got in some last minute advice, followed by a big bear hug.

Back at the Boca Resort marina, the bridal shoot was wrapping up.

And soon, she was off to the church in her vintage Bentley.

She arrived at Our Lady Queen of Peace, just in time for the ceremony to begin.

Ricardo patiently awaited his first look at his Bride2B.

And as dad escorted his little girl down the aisle.

Ric grinned from ear to ear at the sight of her.

A big hug followed.

As did a beautiful ceremony.

After a full catholic mass, the couple happily exited, as husband and wife.

One more kiss…

Then they ran for their awaiting limo.

Over at The Addison, guest began arriving for the cocktail hour, as we fought the fading light for some portraits of the bride and groom.

Guest enjoyed sunset cocktails in the lush gardens.

Serenaded by an acoustic guitarist.

They wrapped up their photos, just in time for their Reception to begin.

The multi-storied room was stunningly uplit, with the couples names emblazoned above the archway.

Amazing Cake!!! This 3-tier creation by Party Cakes by Shawn, was so different and in line w. the hi-fashion Parisian romance vibe.

Fabulous florals and decor by Daniel Event’s completed the space.

Place cards were in the shape of little Parisain street lamps and signs.

Once the newlyweds made their entrance the party began.

First with dancing…

Then a series of toasts.

After dinner, the cake was cut.

Then it was time for “Crazy Hour!”

Each guest received this lovely custom wrapped favors.

Then enjoyed this oh, so yummy dessert bar.

As the party neared the end, garters were retrieved.

And items were tossed.

One last toast to a great night…

And the two stole away for some private time the back stairwell.

Took a stroll into the moonlit gardens.

And wrapped up the night with one last kiss.

The End.
