Cassandra + George took flight from California to Palm Beach for their beautiful “wing inspired” vintage wedding. The intimate affair was held at The Brazilian Court in Palm Beach. The courtyard ceremony began with an angelic flower girl, complete with feathered wings. The reception was held at Café Boulud, and the vintage details were meticulously crafted, mostly by the bride herself, to give the event just the right touch of “old world charm.” The single blossom wedding cake, was understated and elegant. Florals were created by Xquisite Events, the hues of antique pastels worked perfectly with the fabulous taupey-lilac bridesmaids gowns.

Earlier in the day, the bride got ready at the historic Breakers in Palm Beach, and the groom prepped nearby at the stylish Omphoy Ocean Resort.

Erica + Michael’s destination wedding at The Omphoy Ocean Resort, Palm Beach, was the epitome of modern elegance by the sea.

The Omphoy’s dark espresso wood is the main part of their signature decor, and is an artsy photographer’s dream for great use of natural light and contrast.

Just look at this portrait… as the sun streams in thru the crack in the shutters, illuminating the dressing bride like an angel.

Erica readied early in the day in her resort suite.

Love the shoes, by Badgly Mischka… no “change into flip-flops” for this bride… she totally went for the hot stilettos from start to finish.

Couldn’t stop taking pictures of this unique jewelry. The bracelet by Kendra Scott, and tear drop earrings from Priscilla of Boston.

Her diamond wedding band and engagement rings were simple and exquisite, from Barsky Diamonds.

Her makeup was meticulously applied by Joanne from Team Beauti.

Then on with the birdcage veil, from Brideshead’s Revisited, NYC.

Mom helped her daughter into her Grecian inspired, one shouldered gown by Jenny Packham.

Erica’s sister in-laws to be, and friends lent a hand as well.

Mom, looking more like her twin sister here, straightens her headpiece.

Then on with the earrings…

And the way cool shoes. : )

And there you have it… a perfect bride.

Everything worked together to create the perfect, sophisticated, retro image.

The bride reflected a moment… (quite literally!!)

Then put her late grandmother’s heirloom ring on her right hand, to keep her close on her special day.

Erica smiled looking out on sunny blue skies above the ocean. Despite a bit of wind, it was going to be a great day!!!

Her bouquet or gardenias, orchids and calla lilies was created by Marjorie Bennet’s MB Florals.

Dad stopped in for a quick peek, then the three posed for a family photo.

The two bro’s gave their sis a kiss for luck, in tandem.

And off the bride-to-be went.

Wooahh… it’s little windy out there!!!!

Erica channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe here, trying to keep her dress in check.

The girls joined her for a laugh and mini photo shoot.

Meanwhile, over in the groom’s suite, Michael was getting ready himself.

Mom helped her son with his boutonniere.

Then posed for a family photo.

Michael looked dapper in his John Varvato’s suit and plaid Burberry tie selection.

Joined by his two sisters, he headed down the stairs to get in position for the first look.

Is the coast clear, asked the bride… peeking thru these great rice-paper sliders outside the hotels zen themed spa.

Down the stairs and out the door she came…

as she walked along the pond for the big reveal…

A tap… a turn… a wow…

A kiss!!!

Love how the bamboo trees and couple reflect in the pond.

The couple hid away in the spa area out of sight, as guests were starting the head to their suites to get ready for the ceremony. They share a few quite moments together in the gazebo.

A quick dance lesson…

Shared their last kiss as single…

And it was time. The chandeliered ceremony site was beautifully decorated by MB florals.

The white chiavari’s and runner were a nice contrast to the dark walls.

The mantle was lined with votives, floating candle/orchid filled canisters, and high thin vases containing sprays of calla lilies.

The bride was escorted by her parents into Michael’s arms.

Their nuptials were filled with lot’s of love and lots of laughter!!!

An exchange of rings… A kiss… and

Look… Married!!!

Second kiss as husband and wife…

Then… to the beach… Oh, but wait… first you have to sign the license.

Now… the beach!

Love the parasol!

Guests braved the wind, and joined the newlyweds out on the beachfront for a GIANT group photo.

Then headed in for cocktails and dinner reception.

After the couple’s first dance…

A gourmet dinner was served, Gatsby style.

Guests partied into the night.

As the night came to an end… there was dessert…

And cake!!!

And foosball??? Score!!!

A silhouette.

A blue sky lit moment…

A dip…

A long stare into each other’s eyes…

And a cuddly goodnight kiss.

The perfect end, to a perfect night.

{ katelin + nicholas | the omphoy | palm beach weddings }

Katelin + Nicholas’ chic and trendy wedding reception was held at the The Omphoy Ocean Resort, in Palm Beach.

We arrived to shoot Katelin + Nicholas’ wedding day at St. Patricks church, just as the bride and groom were putting on the final touches.

Katelin was a vision, in her white silk Jim Hjelm gown.

Her simple and elegant bouquet of white roses, calla lilies, and dendrodium orchids, created by MB Florals, complimented it perfectly.

The bride was escorted down the aisle by her father into the arms of Nick, who was eagerly awaiting his first look at his stunning bride.

Without a word, his smile, speaks volumes.

After a beautiful ceremony, the newlyweds returned to The Omphoy, for a quick photo shoot with their wedding party, before their guests arrived.

The super creative seating cards were made to look like boarding passes, with each table showing a different location the world traveling pair visited.

The tables featured a frame with the corresponding locale, passport stamp, and a pic of the couple vacationing there.

The intimate Michelle Bernstein restaurant’s private room, served as the reception space for their 50+ guests, overseen by The Omphoys fabulous events and catering manager, Amanda Brothers, and her staff.

It was decorated to perfection by Marjorie Bennett of MB Florals.

The buttercreme cake featured sugar spun calla lilies and was artfully created by Michelle Bernstien’s in-house pastry chef.

The part started with the couples first dance…

Followed by a sisterly toast from Katelin’s Maid of honor…

And a most humorous take on marriage by Nick’s best man.

Katelin danced with her dad…

Nick waltzed with mom…

Then the rest of the guests took to the floor.

After the cake was cut…

The newlyweds stole a few intimate moments after an amazing day.
