This wedding makes me happy. Very, very happy. The kind of happy that can only be brought on by the breathtaking images of Captured Photography by Jenny, an oh-so-lovely color palette (pink and mint green!) and a ceremony overlooking the sunny waters of the PGA National Resort. Yep, an all-encompassing, can’t stop smiling, oh how I love every last minute of this lovely kind of JOY. And the best part? All this glee is just a hop, skip and a jump away in the full gallery. Meet me there for more!
From the Bride… Our wedding ceremony and reception took place at PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Having an outdoor spring wedding in South Florida can be risky, but the weather was absolutely gorgeous. The sun peeked through the clouds as palm fronds swayed from a light breeze in the air. The entire day was flawless! The outdoor ceremony magnified the beauty of evening in South Florida. The flower girls (the bride’s nieces) captured the hearts of many with their memorable entrance of handfuls of flower petal thrown down the aisle. The bride and groom exchanged their genuine, heartfelt vows to one another, and even the groom shed some tears of joy.
The ceremony was followed by a cabana cocktail hour overlooking the PGA National Golf Resort, where guests were enjoyed specialty drinks and delicious appetizers. Soon after, guests entered into the Bella Lago ballroom where dinner and dancing began. The newlyweds first danced to Al Green’s classic hit “Let’s Stay Together.” Next, the groom’s brother toasted the bride and groom with an epic reenactment of their first date (BIG surprise to everyone). Guests enjoyed the comedy. Dinner was served with a choice of filet mignon or chicken roulade served with steamed vegetables and potato au gratin.
The DJ honored all married couples in attendance by asking them to join the bride and groom on the dance floor. A special gift was presented for the longest-married couple, who have been together 60 years and gave humorous, yet genuine words of advice to the newlyweds. Everyone danced the night away. Guests also enjoyed having their pictures taken in the photo booth. The props used in photos consisted of top hats, mustaches and boas. These helped to capture the various personalities of guests. Everyone got to take a copy of their photos home and another copy was placed in a scrapbook created for the bride and groom to keep. This wedding was memorable event for all in attendance. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves surrounded by our close friends and family. My favorite memory was taking a few minutes during the reception to step back and take in the joy and love filled throughout room. We are so grateful for all that we’ve been blessed with in our lives.
