Leah + Michael’s wedding day began at The Seagate Hotel + Spa, a luxury boutique hotel in downtown Delray Beach.

The bride was breathtaking in a couture gown by Essense of Australia. Her bridesmaids dressed in pink champagne, and the adorable flower girl in ivory tulle.

The four-legged ring bearer was simply too cute for words, and even got to be part of the first look, as the bride headed to her groom, with fur baby in tow, on a fabulous floral leafed leash.

Soon after arriving at the Delray Beach Club, the skies opened and last minute raindrops rerouted the ceremony, but love abounded, as the guests encircled the soon-to-be newlyweds for their touching nuptials. Cocktails and reception followed, featuring romantic décor by Marjorie Bennet for MB Custom Florals and a 4-tiered fondant + spun sugar cake by Johnson’s Custom Cakes.

Melissa + Nicks beachfront wedding took place at the Delray Beach club right before sunset.

Earlier in the day, the bride got ready at the Seagate Hotel.

Her bridesmaids, dressed in knee length taffeta aqua blue dresses, helped her dress.

Love the “something blue” navy shoes.

Mom straightened her daughters veil, then dad stopped in to wish her well.

Her flower girl shared a special moment too.

Then the girls all headed out to find the groom for the first look.

Nick, and his groomsmen got dressed in their nearby apartment.

Great bow tie!

He shares a hand shake with his best man…

And another with his “best friend!”

Then the dapper trio took off for the Seagate to see his bride to be for the first time.

After the reveal, the couple and their bridal party, soon left for the beach club.

However, I stole the bride and groom for a bit, and on the way we stopped to visit a nearby beach front mansion for an impromptu photo session.

Guests arrived to a champagne greeting, and a table filled with their seating cards.

They were also asked to sign in, by finding their birthdates on a cool tropical calendar, and writing in their names.
Now, the couple will have no excuse for missing friends and family birthdays for years to come.

The ceremony site was set up overlooking the ocean.

According to Jewish tradition, they had to wait till the sunset to be married. And so as the sun went down they privately signed the Ketubah, surrounded by their immediate family as guests were seated awaiting their nuptials.

The bride was escorted down the aisle by her dad, as the groom looked on in anticipation.

Not long after, they emerged, as Mr. and Mrs. Sadowsky.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres prior to dinner being served in the wall to wall windowed dining room, overlooking the sea.

In lieu of a cake, the couple opted for a 5-tiered cupcake tree topped with a small sea-inspired personal cake.

The party began with a first dance…

Followed by heartfelt toasts…

Cake cutting…

And cupcake eating.

A super cool serenade to his bride of “That Loving Feeling”… complete with ray bans and backup singers, in true Top Gun style!!!!

And lot’s of crazy antics on the dance floor.

As the night came to an end, the newlyweds stole away for a few private moments…

And ended the perfect night with a perfect kiss!

Aimee + Alex’s beautiful beach wedding, was set in the dunes overlooking the ocean at the Delray Beach Club.

Their sea-inspired theme was integrated with simple, clean lines and contrasting shades of off-white and navy blue.

Aimee readied at The Seagate Hotel and Spa in downtown Delray Beach.

Her bridesmaids, clad in short navy halter dresses, helped her into her corseted gown.

Then on with her jewlery…

And her “something blue” Badgley Mischka shoes…

The Garter was the final finishing touch…

Then out they all went thru the seafoam chiffon curtains, onto the balcony overlooking the Seagate’s tropical poolside.

The beautiful bouquets were all created by Whole Foods… who knew???

Over in another suite, Alex and the guys got dressed as well. Their loafers and navy ties…

Were the perfect match to their Seersucker Suits.

The handsome trio looked just perfect for a beach wedding.

As the girls ventured towards the pool for some portraits…

The boys headed to the front of the hotel, awaiting the First Look.

The big reveal did not disappoint. Alex was all smiles, and kisses, when he saw Aimee.

Then it was off to the Delray Beach Club for the ceremony.

Which took place beneath the couples favorite tree, beside the ocean dunes.

The space was marked with orchid filled Tiki Torches.

The bride was escorted by her father down the long aisle…

Right into Alex’s arms.

After a lovely ceremony, the newlyweds exited, smiling ear to ear.

As their guests enjoyed cocktails, they stole a private moment, under “their” tree.

The placecards were tied with nevy organza ribbon to sand dollar keepsakes, set in white trays of sand.

The reception space followed suit, and was decorated in off white and hues of blue with starfish accents.

After their first dance, dinner and dancing followed. And a great night was had by all.

As the party neared the end, it was time to cut the wave inspired cake.

Then… Aimee + Alex posed with their respective, oh so cute, bride and groom sugar cookies…

And joyously… bit their little heads off!!!

The end.
