Meredith + Dan wedding took place on a cliff overlooking the ocean at Jupiter Beach Resort.
It was a special ceremony, as the couple exchanged vows beneath a vintage birch chuppah, hand constructed by the groom from the birch trees in their northeast home, featuring heirloom lace.
Their favors, jars of ” letty’s homemade granola” were also made with love, and served as place cards.

Amanda + Kenny’s wedding reception was held at Jupiter Beach Resort + Spa.
Following their ceremony at Holy Trinity Church, the couple stole away for a photo shoot at Royal Poinciana Chapel gardens.
The bride, a professional fashion model, was in her element. This image of her twirling carefree, is my favorite shot of the day!!!
Earlier in the day, Amanda and her girls readied at their suite at the Jupiter Beach Resort.
After hair and makeup was complete, the bride and her bridesmaids took a moment to laugh.
Before getting into their attire.
The bridesmaid’s buttercup chiffon gowns, by the Dessy Collection, hung on custom hangers all featuring their names.
Once in their gowns, the bride gifted them all with these dainty flower necklaces by Na Hoku.
Check out the eyes on this adorable flower girl.
After a touching note from her groom2b…
Her sister helped her into her beautiful Alfred Angelo gown.
With help from her bridesmaids.
On with the earrings…
Then the Manolos…
And don’t forget, the sexy garters.
Once dressed, Mom stopped in to help her daughter on with the lace trimmed cathedral veil.
Special flower delivery came from this little one.
The stunning bridal bouquet, featured huge yellow lilies + roses and white calla lilies.
Love this special moment with Mom.
Dad came over and got in on the love fest too.
Before heading out, Amanda shot this fun series beneath her veil.
Then the bridesmaids grabbed their yellow rose bouquets, and they were off.
The bride was a vision in this white limo.
Love this great playful moment captured with Amanda and her Dad.
Meanwhile, Kenny and his guys got ready in another suite.
A toast amongst friends…
Then on with the jacket, with help from his best man.
Mom adjusts her son’s boutonniere.
A handshake from dad.
And a reflective glance before he and the groomsmen left for the church.
In Trinity’s ready room, the bride worked the cameras as she ascended the staircase.
Once at the church, the groom posed with his boys, large and small.
The bride emerged…
And assisted this little ring bearer, then it was off to the alter.
The flower girl paved the way with yellow petals.
All eyes were on the bride as she came down the aisle escorted by her father.
Kenny looked on w/ anticipation for the first look at his approaching bride.
After a lovely ceremony, the couple emerged as husband and wife.
As their bridal party cheered.
Their portrait session took place at the Royal Poinciana Gardens.
This fountain area held special meaning for them, after all Kenny built it. Wow!
A visit to the seagull cottage…
Then off to the reception at Jupiter Beach Resort + Spa.
Guest enjoyed cocktails, as the reception space was set up.
The newlyweds entered the ballroom…
To a round of applause.
After a first dance…
Their best man and maid of honor gave toasts…
That brought the couple to laughter… and tears.
There was music…
and lots of celebrating.
Bouquets and garters were tossed and caught.
Cakes were cut…
Great groom’s cake!!!
As the evening came to a close…
We captured a few last tender moments.

Fiona + Jason’s Jupiter Beach Resort wedding, overlooking the ocean, was a beautiful affair; blending tiffany colored seaside details with old world Scottish tradition & memorabilia. Not to mention a very special ring bearer. (hint: woof!)
The two were so wonderfully in love, it was evident from head to toe.
The whimsical blue wild flower bouquet, and white orchid boutonniere, were created by Simply Flowers. It was wrapped with a ribbon showing the bride’s Scottish Tartan (which is actually her family’s plaid pattern – the “Lindsay” tartan). This Lindsay Tartan ran through the event, along with heirloom military buttons which belonged to Fiona’s father. This kept his memory a mere touch away all day long.
Beneath a canopy of trees, hidden from the rain, they stole some tender moments.
Earlier in the day, Fiona readied in her suite.
The grooms wedding band was tungsten and platinum and the tungsten was engraved with the bride’s family knot – the Lindsay knot from Scotland.
A pin of the Lindsay Knot, was also worn by the bride.
Her hair and makeup, were meticulously applied and styled by Team Beauti.
Fiona was a vision in her stunning english lace gown.
Dripping in jewels she was positively regal.
In another suite, Jason had a bit of help prepping for the big event.
Once his cufflinks, another touch of family tradition, were on, the Groom (a previous company commander) was assisted by his first sergeant… they had both lead a US Army company (the Blacksmiths) together in Ramadi, Iraq
After a quick hug from dad, Jason headed out for the first look.
As Fiona raced thru the raindrops…
Jason awaited her under the trees.
The reveal was all he had hoped.
They were all smiles, despite the weather.
Halfway thru their photo session, the rain was replaced by blue skies and sunshine, just in time for the upcoming ceremony.
The outdoor ceremony, took place beneath the canopy of trees. Darines and the Simply Flowers crew, made certian, all the branches were adorned with crystals, and their signature flower filled glass globes hanging by tiffany ribbons.
Loved, loved, loved all the DIY details the couple created. The Bride conceived of them all, assisted by Cindy at Paper Palette Stationary in Jupiter.
An assortment of hand-painted metal tubs, were filled with lots of handy items for their guests.
This “Brush the Beach from your Feet” tin, was my favorite. Complete with tiffany colored paint brushes, for handy sand removal.
Another tin was filled with ice cold customized waters.
Next… matching Swarovski stoned flipflops.
And lastly, the custom seashell shaped fans/wedding programs, tied with ribbons.
The ceremony was very moving, with moments of tears + tradition, offset by some light hearted humor.
Through it all, their love shined through.
When it came time for the rings to be exchanged… down came the ring bearer… on all fours.
Diana from Royal Dog Walking / was on hand to make certain their beloved “fur-baby” Marlin, was prepared to walk down the aisle to make his all important delivery with his little Lindsay tartan custom made ring pillow harnessed to his back.
After making quite the entrance, he got a quick kiss from mom for doing such a great job.
The rings, in a matching pouch, were then passed around to all the guests, for them to each bless with their own special wishes for the couple…
before being exchanged between them.
After the kiss…
The newlyweds exited and headed straight for the beach.
I raced to the reception space, excited to see what other fab details they had in store for me to capture, and Ana Maja took them to the beach for some post ceremony photos.
They shared some intimate moments together beneath a great post storm sky.
However, they soon had some company. Here the groom and his boys look on at the blushing bride.
Shortly after, Jason went in for quite the passionate kiss… which apparently met with rave reviews.
Meanwhile, the cocktail hour was underway on the outdoor patio, as guest awaited the couples arrival.
Over at the reception space, the details did not disappoint. The cocktails tables had cymbidiums floating in tall vases, and in lieu of a sign in book, there was a “sign-in tree,” for guests to share their personal messages.
The table linens had tiffany floral sheers overlays, and clear silver trimmed chargers, which looked great with the matching chiavari chairs, all from Atlas Party Rental. Crystals dangled from the antique blue Hydrangea, white orchid, and willow vased centerpieces, again by Simply Flowers.
As for the favors and table cards… bit of back story… Bride is a commercial pilot, and many of the guests came from afar. Hence the super cute hand painted airplane, which dually served as a place card.
The tables were named with International Airport Codes. Guests from London, sat at the Heathrow table LHR, Ft. Lauderdale, sat at FLL… Palm Beach, PBI, Key West EYW… you get the idea. So clever.
After a while, the happy couple entered.
In true euro fashion, inspired by the royals famous fan masks, the guest greeted the couple with mirror images of themselves, as they entered to a sea of “fionas and jasons.”
The first dance soon followed.
And the night continued with lots more… just a bit crazier.
A game of blind folded musical chairs replaced the more typical garter toss.
The bride threw her tiny toss bouquet, then gifted her mother with her actual wedding bouquet.
It was a poignant moment, as again, it was wrapped with Fiona’s late dad’s military buttons.
The, oh so yummy, tiffany fondant cake with little white sugar flowers and the couples monogram was cut at night’s end.
Jason lovingly fed Fiona… well she kinda made sure of that… notice the “fork” threateningly positioned to assure Jason’s good behavior.
As their amazing evening came to a close, the shared a last kiss…
Then curled up on the couch for a warm and tender cuddle!!!!
