Black Tie Palm Beach Wedding

I’m a big believer in the moments in between moments. A mother zipping up her daughter in that most important dress. A darling crew of littles totting down the aisle. The Groom whispering “I love yous” in his beloved Bride’s ear. They’re the moments great storytellers like Jessica Lorren capture with such care, and you can see each one waiting in The Vault.

From The Bride…George and I met my freshman year at Vanderbilt University and had been together for about 8 years before we got married this past April. We lived in Nashville, Charlotte and New York City before settling in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. I was raised in Windermere, FL. His family is Greek and mine is a mix of Italian, Guatemalan, Venezuelan and British. On the night we got engaged, neither of us slept a wink. We stayed up all night talking about our future and how we were going to celebrate the start of that new life with our wedding.

We love traveling and entertaining around good stories and delicious meals. We knew we wanted to create a night that felt true to us, our families, and backgrounds. Florida will always have a special place in my heart so we started touring both coasts for the perfect venue. We wanted something tropical and true to the Florida lifestyle. However, we wanted the destination to be rich in history and also have a unique culture. We found that exactly in the town of Palm Beach, FL. The small barrier island off of the Southeast coast of Florida has just that: rich in history, and a truly unique feel. Once we had good vibes for Palm Beach, the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum was an easy first choice for the location of our ceremony and reception. The island was practically established by Henry Morrison Flagler and his home (now turned museum) is a reflection of the glamour and old world history that made Palm Beach what it is today.

Under the guidance of our fantastic wedding planner, Breeze Taylor, we crafted a night that felt completely unique to us. We wanted our guests to collaboratively feel like they were an integral part of the celebration all night. The band invited everyone to come out and dance with us at the end of our first dance. Dance sets were sprinkled throughout the whole night, and in between speeches and dinner courses. We wanted guests to constantly feel like they were part of making the celebration come to life. We worked with an incredible caterer that helped us custom create a multi course dinner that included old family recipes, dishes we loved to make at home, as well as some of our favorite NYC restaurant inspired creations. Our incredible floral design team brought my organically elegant, secret-garden inspired vision come to life in their creation of our bouquets, table arrangements, and ceremony archway. Our Earth & Sugar almond and vanilla buttercream cake was out of this world delicious and looked every bit as dreamy as well.

Our weekend was beautifully captured by the ultra-talented Jessica Lorren. Not only does she have the best eye for capturing moments in the most unique yet organic light, but she is truly a beautiful person with the most radiant personality. Having such a warm presence around us on such a special occasion truly made our day complete.

Glamour Sailing Engagement in Miami

I’m kind of obsessed with this engagement shoot from Hunter Ryan Photo in the best possible way. Sailboats and salty air are always a sure fire way to my heart, but add in a gorgeous couple that is totally and completely in love with each other – and I’m a complete goner. These images turned my heart into mush, and you can see why here.


From Hunter Ryan Photo… Amanda and Nick recently moved from Columbus, Ohio to South Florida. They knew they wanted to take advantage of the beauty and salty air and sea for their engagement shoot. Amanda teamed up with Hollie of Elleson Events to create the engagement of her dreams. She describes her and Nick’s style as relaxed J Crew but they love to get dressed up for a night out too! They commissioned a private sailboat charter for their engagement and Hollie paired their relaxed preppy style with some classic glamour and a little candlelight. It was perfection on the high seas at sunset in Miami. When your sweet clients end the day by saying that their shoot was “the best day ever, ” and that “we’ve never had more fun,” you know it was an amazing day!

Southern Simplicity Inspiration Shoot

As someone who grew up in the south, that part of the country will always hold a special place in my heart. So when I see a shoot like this beautiful work of art from E. M. Anderson Photography, I get nostalgic in the best possible way. With stunning florals from Milk & Honey, gorgeous stationery from CEW Calligraphy, and one ridiculously beautiful model – this gallery is southern perfection.

From E.M. Anderson PhotographySet against the backdrop of the historical Florida home of author Harriet Beecher Stowe, this shoot was inspired by the concept of a Southern tomboy all grown up. Simple styling, family heirlooms and truly southern sweets all worked together to create a relaxed and elegant mood.

The beautiful calligraphy lent an even more handmade and personal feel, and the floral design was natural and a little wild, incorporating southern icons like magnolias and peaches. All the silver and place settings were my own great grandmothers and I was so pleased to incorporate a sense of tradition by including them.

Overall, we wanted to inspire brides that their wedding design doesn’t need to be glamorous or extravagant to be beautiful, but that there is inherent confidence and elegance in humble, simple things. I think the legendary Coco Chanel said it best, “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”

From Hunter Ryan Photo… Marissa & Alex had their destination wedding amidst the boat docks of the Naples Yacht Club. Not wanting to be over the top nautical, Marissa worked with Isn’t She Lovely Florals to design a tablescape that reflected a pretty neutral palatte but still embodied the soft seaside vibe.

From You Look Lovely PhotographyA short drive west of Orlando is the beautiful Bella Collina Golf Club, the setting of this gorgeous wedding of Mike and Michelle. With an unconventional palette of fuchsia, deep red and gold, the wedding was a colorful display of classic elegance. The event designed by Peplum Events and Design featured intricate details like gold antique candle holder with fuchsia Taper candles, hand dyed ribbon, golden flatware, and hand-lettered menus placed in front of every unique seat lined against the communal table.

Peplum Events and Design also created the stunning centerpieces and bridal bouquet featuring the showstopping King Protea flower. Three cakes designed by Gigi-Mamma Cakes bordered a separate table with the main dessert being an incredible three-layer, guava and cream cheese filled, naked cake draped in Juliet roses, figs, and eucalyptus branches. The bride and groom’s English Sheepdog, Joy, even took part in the festivities dressed in a dyed ribbon and eucalyptus wreath.

As a memento of the day, a local cartoonist came and drew caricatures for each of the guests long into the night. The guests also enjoyed various seating arrangements, like the Lola Sofa and Mumford Leather Sofa provided by Unearthed Vintage, strategically placed around the back terrace of Bella Collina.

The bride and groom shared their surreal and intimate celebration with their one year old son and just over 20 guests as the sun was setting. The three of them departed together under the glow of a sparkler send off.
