There is just something so wonderful about a black tie soiree – don’t you agree? Handsome groomsmen lined up looking dapper and elegant maids in long flowing gowns – it’s hard not to feel a bit fancy with such a fabulous dress code. Well, this gorgeous gala by Jessica Lorren Organic Photography will have you feeling fancy after just looking at the pretty images. It’s classic elegance at its finest, and there is even more in the full gallery of images!
From the Bride…We live in New York City, but we’d always dreamed of having our wedding at the Boca Resort, where took a romantic weekend trip a few years ago. From then on, it became one of our favorite places. There is just something magical about the resort. We wanted the style of our wedding to be classic and elegant — see: our black bridesmaid’s dresses and tuxes – but also unstuffy (see: beers under the Banyon trees during our photo session!)
Daniel and I met in college, and we both love live music and a rocking party. One of the best moments for us was when our maid of honor Chrissy’s dad, Pat Cullinan, joined the band to play rhythm guitar on one of our favorite songs, The AllmanBrothers’ “Blue Sky.” Our goal for the reception was to bring a backyard party into the Cathedral Room, with greenery and bunches of Michelle’s favorite flower, the hydrangea. We ended up breaking out boas and maracas and hopping on stage with the band — we wouldn’t have had it any other way!
