Rachel and Alex’s wedding at The Ritz-Carlton, Key Biscayne, was a stunning affair.
Earlier in the day, the bride readied in one The Ritz-Carlton’s spacious bridal suites.
Her stunning lace and silk couture gown by Lazaro, was absolutely breathtaking.
The bride’s elegant bouquet, by Always Flowers and Events was the perfect choice.
As were the oh, so hot Jimmy Choo stilettos.
Rachel’s makeup was flawlessly applied.
Before dressing in her gown, the bride requested a mini-boudior photo shoot as a surprise for her groom-to-be. Surprise, Alex!!! Here is a demure “unrevealing” outake that simply shows the romance of it all.
Mom helped her into her daughter into the fab gown from Chic Parisen, then on with her satin/rhinestone belt. Love it!!!
Mom fastened the diamond baguette bracelet.
Then on with the earrings…
And let’s not forget the shoes.
Voila! Dressed. The silk/chiffon scallops of this gown’s bottom are just to die for.
Over in the groom’s suite. Alex and his groomsmen got into their tuxedos.
Struck a pose on the balcony…
Toasted to a great day.
Then headed out to meet his bride for the reveal.
Rachel was also on her way down the sweeping staircase.
Stopping a moment to reflect..
Garnering some last minute advice from Grandma…
And a kiss from her adorable flower girl.
Her bridesmaids were awaiting her arrival in the courtyard and the “black and white” theme was complete.
Totally love these white and black poppy bridesmaids bouquets. : ) So different!
The blue sky accented Rachel’s lace edged veil, and the windy day helped make these pre-reveal images extra special.
After the first look, the bride and groom enjoyed a romantic portrait session around the property.
Later on, they met up with their giant bridal party for some photo fun.
As the little one’s looked on. Awww how cute is she in her baby pearls???
Oh, my look at those EYES!!!
Here the flower girl, shows off her Bridal Barbie.
Then the soon to be married pair…
Steal a kiss… as they all adjourn to the ketubah signing.
Here Alex veils his Bride as Dad looks on.
The ceremony site was set on the ocean lawn. Here the chuppah can be seen in the daylight.
However, the candle lit ceremony did not begin until after sunset.
Strings played as the bride was escorted down the aisle by her parents.
And gathered beneath the Chuppah for a beautiful service.
Following their nuptials, they joined guests in a lavish outdoor cocktail party beside the fountain.
Over in the ballroom, the finishing touches were being put on the amazing reception space.
The room was transformed! Black Chiavari chairs, surrounded tables of different shapes and sizes. Onyx china place settings, were accented by assorted centerpieces, as Orchid’s dripped from candelabras, and floated in vases, topped with hydrangeas.
This unique installation featured dangling orchids, and a water filled top with faux diamonds and floating candles.
The white butter creme 4 tiered creation, belted in rhinestones, with cascading sugar flowers, was created by one of florida’s best… the infamous Ana Paz.
Black and white hand calligraphed place cards, sat upon a table clothed in black and white flowers…
Above them hung a display of white rose topiary balls, and dripping candle/jewel filled blown glass spheres.
There was even a lounge area set up for those with tired-tootsies to rest later in the night.
Once the party began, the newlyweds waltzed on the magnificent white dance floor, as patterned lights danced along with them from floor to ceiling.
A wild Horah followed…
Then the Mezinkah, heralding the last daughter married.
The night was filled with toasts…
And lot’s of dancing… and singing too!
And at some point, crazy, fun “i HEART rachel + alex” glasses were worn by all.
One last dance…
The cutting of the cake…
And their fairytale night was over.
