haute couture

{ ashley + alex | café boulud | brazilian court | palm beach wedding photography }

Ashley + Alex’s Brazilian Court wedding was pure elegance.

The bride wore a couture satin gown by Oscar de la Renta, with a trumpet silhouetted train, paired with strappy gold studded Valentino’s.

Her near perfect bridesmaid’s took the on-trend convertible infinity dress to a whole new level… with each wrapping style more creative than the next. And her two super-cute flower girls, carried white monogrammed wicker purses filled with baby’s breath, and matching hair wreaths.

The couple exchanged vows at St. Ann Catholic Church, followed by portraits on Worth Avenue’s Italian inspired vias.

A quick pre-sunset walk on the beach, then they were off to their cocktail party at Café Boulud’s courtyard followed by a candle lit reception which featured gold and ivory décor by Harbour Bay Florist, and a fabulous naked 4-tier naked cake by Cafe Boulud’s pastry chef.

Amanda + Michael’s beautiful destination wedding was held at The Breakers Palm Beach overlooking the ocean.

The designer savvy groom dressed in a navy Tom Ford tux, a Hermes belt, and Gucci shoes. As did his two adorable matching ring bearers, with the cutest sign ever!

The bride rocked a Pnina Tornai lace couture gown and strappy gold Jimmy Choos, and was a vision in white… the other white vision was the little furry flower girl, who tried her best to steal the show.

This pup quite literally did not leave the couples’ side throughout the wedding. She had a custom lace flower collar and leash, and a sign that read, “My humans are getting married… finally!”. She walked down the aisle cuddled in the groom’s arms, and even attended the reception. {fur-real} She was right there for the first dance, the cake cutting, the champagne toast, and even made sure she did not miss end of night cookies and milk!!! Now that is puppy love!

Just before sunset, the blowing tropical winds mixed with the string trio, as the couple exchanged vows before an intimate group of family and friends.

The stunning event was coordinated by Trina Chaney-Hoo, for The Planning Company and managed by Sal Raciot, for The Breakers. The Beach Club hosted the reception which featured navy accents mixed with vintage florals + décor created by The Design Studio at the Breakers.
