Hotel Weddings


Amanda + Gabryel

This couple wed at the beautiful St Anthony’s Catholic Church in Ft Lauderdale. The bride arrived to the church in a vintage rolls Royce accompanied by her parents. After the wedding the bride, groom and bridal party had fun taking pictures around the Las Olas area.   The reception was held at the Riverside Hotel.  Guests enjoyed an evening of sentimental moments, including a tear flooded Matron of Honor speech by the bride’s sister and a few dances with the couple’s 80+ year grandparents.

Kyla + Brandon

For this couple it was love at first sight once they saw the little chapel in Palm Beach.  They just knew it was the place for “I do”.   The church also gave Kyla & Brandon permission to let their 4 dogs be a part of the wedding, each walking with a bridesmaid down the aisle.    After the wedding, the couple headed over to the historic Colony Hotel also on the island.    The ballroom was spectacular, decorated with a white floral centerpieces and gold accents.  The bride, with a love of all flowers, named her tables after favorite blooms.   Crystals dripped off the 4 tier wedding cake, which became front and center in the amber lit ballroom.   To thank their guests in attendance, Kyla and Brandon customized a CD of their favorite love songs and labeled them with photos from their engagement session.   At the end of the night, they happily retreated to the presidential suite at the hotel where many US presidents were known to stay when visiting Palm Beach.

Gabriela + John

This Arkansas based couple picked sunny Hollywood FL for their nuptials since many of Gabby’s family would be coming from South America.   They chose the Westin Diplomat Resort for both a beachfront ceremony and reception.  Going with the colors of the ocean and sky, the couple created an elegant yet serene setting inside the Crystal Ballroom.  The stunning tall centerpieces with a mix of blue and white florals became the focal point with beautiful blue uplighting and draping adding to the romantic effect.   Gabby + John had a slideshow of trivia about them during the cocktail hour and her sister, the Maid of Honor, brought the bride to tears when she presented a homemade scrapbook of well wishes from each guests that she collected during the wedding.
