Bold statement alert: This wedding just earned it’s place in my top five favorite weddings ever. And this whole tropical elegance vibe it has going on? Per-fection. With the wildly beautiful Boca Raton Resort as the backdrop, it’s hard not to feel like you’re in a tropical wonderland. Layer on coral reef-like florals from Boca By Design, pale mint ‘maids, starfish heels and one breathtaking Monique Lhuillier number? And we’re taken from pretty to beyond. See the gorgeous gallery from Justin DeMutiis for so much more.
From Justin DeMutiis Photography…Emma and David met in Miami in early 2011 through mutual friends. David was living on South Beach and Emma had just moved to Miami from a small town in central Illinois. It took David seven months to convince Emma he was not the “typical male” living in Miami. Soon after, David bought a house and moved to Pompano Beach, about a 45 minute drive from Miami. Emma moved in February 2013 and on March 14, 2013 David proposed on his boat on the way to “dinner”. Instead of taking the boat to dinner, they took it over to David’s parent’s house where Emma’s parents and other family members were waiting to celebrate!
From the beautiful Bride…From the moment David and I got engaged we knew we wanted a few important things: an awesome venue, a great photographer, and a DJ that would have everyone dancing. We chose the Boca Raton Resort and Club because it’s beautiful and it offered our guests a weekend of luxury! The Cloister Garden is lush with greenery, mosaic tile, fountain and the pink backdrop of the resort. Inside, in the Cathedral Room, it is very different than any hotel ballroom. The hotel is casual yet elegant, with the glam that I was looking for! David and I have family all over the country, so if they were traveling to South Florida for our wedding, we wanted to provide them with a weekend of fun and activities so they didn’t have to leave the resort or rent a car. We saw the resort on a very stormy and rainy day, and fell in love. We knew that if we loved it on such an ugly day that we, and our guests, would love it on our wedding day and we did!
