This wedding is a fashion power house. A stunning Monique Lhuillier gown meets dapper men in bow ties kind of powerhouse that takes everything you think you know about glamorous weddings and kicks it up a notch with some of the most beautiful details you have ever seen. I guess that’s what happens when an amazing team of vendors (think Boca by Design, Momental Designs and Alexi Shields Photography) come together to create a dream yacht club wedding. It’s all kinds of amazing. Click here for all of the pretty.
From the Bride… Our South Florida wedding was an intimate affair at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. All guests, except my mother, flew in from out of town. The resort was the perfect choice for our guests, who once arrived never had to leave, and for my husband and I, who were planning the wedding first from Charlotte, North Carolina and later New York City.
I absolutely love the Spanish style of the Boca Raton Resort. Our décor, from the mahogany Chiavari chairs, the hand-painted tile place cards, and the wrought iron candelabras, reflected this style. One of my favorite design elements that embodied the Spanish aesthetic was the chandeliers that hung from the arch during the ceremony. Because I could not get enough of them, these same chandeliers were later hung above the family tables during the reception. Another important aspect I considered throughout the planning process was the color of my wedding dress. Because I was not wearing white it was very important to me to still feel like a bride. The blush color scheme throughout the ceremony and reception paired with my blush dress, veil, shoes, and bouquet truly exceeded my expectations of what a bride should feel on her wedding day!
Looking back, I am so thankful that we decided to keep our wedding intimate because of the amount of quality time we were able to spend with family and friends. I am also thankful for our photographers, Alexi and Shane, who beautifully captured all of the memories that were made. I cannot help but smile every time I look at our photographs, which is still almost daily (I just can’t get enough!). Knowing the love and joy that was shared between my husband and I leading up to our wedding day and on that day excites me and reassures me that our next steps in life will be filled with equally as much or more love and joy!
