From the Bride… We wanted to get married in West Palm Beach. Ralston grew up here and I moved to this area about 5 years ago for school. I just felt in love with this city. West Palm Beach has amazing beaches, stunning inter-coastal skylines, and beautiful palm trees. We live where people come to have destination weddings. Plus, this is where I met Ralston. West Palm Beach is a special place to Ralston and I. I could not imagine getting married anywhere else.
We wanted to get married in front of God so we picked Holy Trinity Episcopal church. The church is perfect size for our 120 guests. It also had the traditional church feeling that we were looking. We also loved the Father Wilt. During our wedding counseling sessions, he really tried to get to know us and we got to know him too. Father wilt was able to make our wedding ceremony very personalized and special.
Breakers is one of the most beautiful place we ever been to. Walking into The Breakers is like walking into one of the palaces in Europe. As soon as we walked into the circle room in The Breakers, we knew this was it. It had the panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean and a high ceiling with amazing artwork and a stunning chandelier. We didn’t have to look anywhere else. The church organist played ceremony music. He played the organ while guests were sitting. He played “Ave Maria” for the sitting of mother. Processional song was Prince of Denmark’s march by Clark. Recessional song was “Hompipe” by Handel.
Ralston is such a thoughtful person. We had a wedding gift exchange before the ceremony. When I was opening up the wedding gift sent to me by Ralston, there was a letter starting with “ Good morning my beautiful bride,” and I just lost it. I was sobbing. I almost ruined my makeup that took 2 hours! Ralston gave me a lock with our initials and our wedding date engraved. He special ordered this for us so we can lock it in the Love Bridge in Paris on our honeymoon. He also gave me a Cartier watch as a wedding gift too. His wedding band actually matches my watchband!
