We are so excited that Weddings Illustrated selected our clients, Bella + Jordan, to grace the cover of their Fall/Winter 2012 issue!!!
Their Old Marsh Golf Club wedding was also featured, as “Course of Love.”
For more images of their wedding day, click here to view their original full blog post.
The groom, Jordan Hart, a professional NHL player and former New York Islander, tied the knot with Bella Feldman, the woman of his dreams.
This bridge, where the couple did their first look, held sentimental value, as this is where Jordan proposed.
The bride’s bouquet, contained gardenia’s, tupips, and garden roses.
Beneath her veil, Bella was “Vouge” cover shoot perfect…
We had the best time capturing their portraits in this wooded area.
The garden bouquets were fabulous, featuring muted pastels and magenta poppies, tied with a dusty blue ribbon, they looked great with the bridesmaids’ colorful gowns.
The girls’ floral printed chiffon gowns by Aiden Mattox were an ideal choice.
Love the way they flowed and worked with the green terrain.
Earlier, Bella readied at one of the private cottages west of the club.
Her Monique Lhullier couture gown was a phenomenal choice, channelling both sexy and ingenue at once.
Again, love her bridal bouquet, seen here from all angles.
Her makeup was meticulously applied by Team Beauti.
And her hair, inspired by Audrey Hepburn in ‘My Fair Lady,” was crafted by Justin’s. The hair jewelry, by Christian Lauren pulled it all together.
Her best friends helped her into her gown.
On with her grandmother’s vintage diamond Tiffany + Co. earrings.
Then on with her signature red-soled Louboutins.
Once her veil was in place it was time for some portraits…
Bella was a vision beneath her veil as the natural light streamed thru the shutters of the cottage. So much so, that I just had to share the series.
Mom stopped in for a look see, and to fix her daughters veil prior to her heading outdoors.
Her bridesmaid’s helped her expertly navigate her long train.
The girls graciously lounged on the cushiony lawn for these cozy portraits.
Once in the grass, Bella worked the camera like a pro, to create this haunting fine art series.
Meanwhile, over at the Club, in the men’s locker room, Jordan and his crew, got ready for the big day.
With intermittent sports viewing breaks, of course.
Once dressed, his beautiful mother stopped by to help him on with his boutonniere.
Then he and his groomsmen left for some portraits of their own on the green.
Clearly he inherited his good looks from dad Gerry Hart, not to mention his other talents… as Dad is a legendary NHL defenseman and NY Islander alum.
Bella’s ageless mom, looking more like her sister, also stopped by to see her daughter off to the big reveal.
Once veiled, she was off to where it all began…
Jordan waited on the bridge where he first asked her to marry him, as Bella surprised him from behind…
The two met in the middle and shared a special moment.
A portrait session in the wooded marshes soon followed.
Once back at the Club, they met up with their Bridal Party prior to the ceremony.
The bride and her dad arrived at the club via a tulle decorated golf cart.
The ceremony, was held on the terrace overlooking the a serene 5 acre-lake
As the strings began to play, the bride and her dad took a breath.
The flower girl grabbed her basket.
And the procession began.
Would you look at the eyes on this little ring bearer. They were so mesmerizing.
Bella was escorted down the aisle by her parents.
As her dad gave her way, the service began.
Officiated by the groom’s longtime friend and former teammate, Rick DiPietro.
As the sun set, the two emerged as Mr. + Mrs. Hart.
A lavish cocktail hour awaited.
As guests, imported from across the globe, enjoyed vodka, caviar, and lobster.
The reception, in the club’s ballroom, was overseen by Old Marsh’s GM Micheal Gibson and his wonderful staff.
The party began with the newlyweds first dance.
Note the new form fitting reception gown the bride changed into, designed by Hervé Leger.
The gown features the designers signature criss cross down the back of the gown.
And an ending that would have made Fred and Ginger proud.
Speeches and toasts followed, as did parent dances.
After dinner, the party got rocking, courtesy of Flavor.
As the night wound down, yummy gourmet desserts were served.
The bride and groom cut the unique 3 tier rose topped cake.
The the couple shared one last… oh so sexy… dance up on stage with the band.
Then wrapped it up with this end of night shoot on the baby grand.
The perfect end to a perfect day!!!

Kristin + Roger’s elegant country club wedding, was held at Old Marsh Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens.
Despite the raindrops, the couple cuddled beneath an umbrella fit for two.
Earlier in the day, the bride readied at her parents Old Marsh home.
Her sister helped her into her stunning Augusta Jones “Perla” gown.
Once dressed, Mom added the veil for the final touch.
Over in a nearby cottage, Roger was also getting ready with help from his children.
Special delivery for the bride from the oh, so handsome ring bearer. Her exquisite bouquet, of white peonies, and crystal centered dendrodiums was created by Simply Flowers, Palm Beach Gardens.
Kristin posed for some portraits, and tried to wish the rain away.
It worked… at least long enough to venture out to meet Roger on the golf course for a first look at their favorite lakeside hole.
Soon it was time to get married!
The bride looked past the rain covered window as her car headed for the ceremony site.
The ring bearer grabbed his pillow.
A gorgeous white tent, complete with crystal chandeliers, was being set for the couple’s nuptials.
Coordinated by Beth Beattie, and decorated by Simply Flowers, the results were breathtaking.
The pewter chiavari chairs were adorned with hydrangeas, and pink garden roses, and petals were strewn upon the ivory cushions for an added touch of romance.
The bride was escorted down the aisle by her father.
Roger was all smiles, as Kristin was delivered into his arms.
Vows were promised…
Rings were exchanged…
And in the end, they emerged as Mr. + Mrs. Stanton!!!
A champagne toast followed immediately after, as guests raised their glasses to the newlyweds.
After the cocktail hour concluded, guests were invited into the club for a formal dinner.
The place cards were so unique. The scrabble buffs, named each table from a letter from their surnames, and adhered a scrabble square to each place card.
They were arranged on a table of pink flowers, and faux diamonds, coordinating with the centerpieces.
The three-tier white raspberry cake, was wrapped in navy ribbon and featured cascading white sugar flowers. It was masterfully crafted by The Sugar Monkey.
Their golf inspired logo, was placed atop their menus, which sat on clear glass chargers, edged in pewter beads.
A five course dinner was served… (count the forks!)
There was dancing…
And lots of fun was had by all…
Guests all sent wishes via a giant bottle of wedding wine, using a special silver pen.
Following a lavish dessert spread…
The cake was cut…
And their perfect night came to an end.
Guests were given favor boxes containing yummy gourmet cookies as they departed.
