Old Palm Golf Club

Amanda + Wesley’s wedding weekend was truly extraordinary! They took Rustic Chic to the next level, as Old Palm Golf Club’s lush grounds were transformed, by Chicago designer Tom Kehoe, for Kehoe Designs.

The bride readied earlier in the day at her parents Old Palm residence, and was stunning in a couture gown by Hayley Paige and satin jeweled flats by Badgley Mischka. Her bouquet of mostly black and white poppies, mixed white lilies, and garden roses was a standout.

Guest entered the tented ceremony through a custom gold and white foyer draped in flowers and white organza, the down the petal strewn grass aisle, beneath wooden and floral chandeliers. The couple exchanged vows just before sunset.

Cocktails poolside, were followed by a candlelit dinner held in a white open walled tent, filled with reclaimed wood tables and farm chairs, topped with mercury glass votives, candles, and various arrangements of succulents, lilies, white roses and silver brunia. Earth + Sugar created the 4-tier orchid topped white buttercream and painted gold cake.

After dinner, guests followed the winding art deco lit path, to a clear greenhouse style tent for dancing and desserts. The décor was to die for. Seriously, I wanted to live there. It was like a “Restoration Hardware” dream come true!!!

Creatively crafted by Kehoe Designs, with coordination by Susan Davidson, this fully furnished space, had a natural wood floor, rustic white couches, deconstructed chairs, custom made bars, and an assortment of eclectic chandeliers. There was alsop, a shoe bar, a dessert bar, and a donut wall, along with an ingenius A+W Rootbeer float station, for Amanda + Wesley, complete with custom glasses.

Noelia + James were married at the stunning Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, with it’s fabulous Mizner inspired architecture.

The camera just loved them both!!!

Earlier in the day, the bride readied in her suite.

The bride’s bouquet, included white peonies and garden roses.

In lieu of flower stems, this vintage metal holder. How original.

Make-up by Chanel…

Her mom and matron of honor helped her dress.

Yes… still buttoning. Worth it though… the back of this dress is amazing!

The two adorable flower girls even lent a hand.

I am a big fan of birdcage veils, and Noelia wore it to perfection.

Love this sweet moment with the bride and her mother. : )

Once ready, the bride headed out for a portrait shoot in the lobby…

Then ventured out when the skies cleared in between raindrops…

Here she steals a kiss from this cute little guy. (You will be seeing lots more of him later.)

Meanwhile, James readied elsewhere with help from his parents.

Noelia and her Matron of Honor enjoyed a smiling moment.

Which got even wider watching her two little flower girls have some fun.

James and his boys strike a pose.

And Noelia heads for her groom-to-be.

The ceremony was moved indoors into this lovely arched space, due to weather. Love the wood beamed ceiling.

As vows were exchanged, the ring bearer, found the perfect place to be, right in between their feet.

Okay… now is that the most precious thing ever???

A family portrait.

Following their nuptials, the reception space was readied.

Each table featured a lovely array of tropical arrangements, and silver candelabras.

In keeping with the theme, green orchids cascaded down the 4-tier fondant cake.

Excited to get the party started, the newlyweds entered.

And shared a beautiful first dance.

A special touching performance soon followed.

Bringing the couple to tears. Happy ones!!!

Some love was shared…

And more love was shared…


Later on the bride changed into dancing clothes, and they both commandeered the dj booth, and got the dance floor hopping.

This little dude totally rocked it…

Next stop… “So you think you Can Dance” auditions!!!


As the night came to a close… the yummy cake was cut…

Even yummier favors were gifted (mmmm…godiva… my favorite)

And the new Mr. + Mrs. exited thru a sea of waving sparklers.

The end.
