Lavish Palm Beach Wedding With a Touch of Emerald Green

There aren’t enough hand clapping emojis in the world to reflect how much I truly love this wedding. Think a lavish Palm Beach ballroom affair made completely personal, with not a single detail overlooked thanks to JCG Events. Per usual, Elizabeth Messina pulled off an image gallery that’s a complete work-of-art and we cannot get enough.

From JCG Events … Every detail was thought through when planning this destination wedding for Brittany and Evan. From the first impression guests received of their custom engraved invitations wrapped in silk boxes to their newlywed brunch in the Circle Room at the Breakers. Guests arrived to Palm Beach and checked in at the Breakers where they were greeted with welcome bags. Each welcome bag was imprinted with a custom illustrated map of important locations and events of their relationship and wedding weekend. Inside the bags, guest found an assortment of thoughtful gifts that reflected the both the bride and groom. After settling in, guests were then invited to the welcome reception, which was at the classic Chesterfield Hotel. Guests enjoyed a poolside reception with a steel drummer, followed by dinner and dancing in the famous Leopard lounge.

The wedding day was filled with joy and excitement. The suite was buzzing around Brittany, as all the ladies were getting ready. Once ready for the day Brittany and Evan had their first look, and then headed to the beautiful gardens of the Four Arts Society for their portraits prior to the ceremony. This was an intimate and beautiful time for the couple and wonderful time to reflect before they headed to the chapel to be wed.

The chapel was decorated with wreaths on the front door and petals and lush arrangements. Following the ceremony guests headed to the Flagler Museum for the reception. The cocktail hour took place inside the Museum where we had an illusionist magician interact and awe guests while they sipped their Moscow Mules and nibbled on delectable hors d’ oeuvres.

We then escorted guests to the main reception hosted in the Pavilion. No detailed was overlooked, the servers wore custom monogramed aprons with matching bowties and white gloves. There was a vintage wood bar where handcrafted specialty cocktails were served throughout the night. Each table was adorned with beautiful linens, napery and gorgeous Maison dinning chairs from Nuage Desings and was completed with beautiful floral centerpieces by Tom Matheiu. Each place setting consisted of beautiful chargers, copper napkin rings, pressed glass stemware, Silver Croydon flatware, gold engraved menu cards and antiqued key for each guest’s place card.

The menu was of particular importance to the couple, as they are both foodies. Guests were treated to a lavish seated dinner that started with a thinly sliced red and yellow beet ravioli filled with goat cheese. The intermezzo was a refreshing lemon sorbet served in custom ice sculpture of the couple’s monogram then garnished with basil rock sugar. The main entrée was an oven roasted branzino with truffled cauliflower smear topped with roasted tomatoes and a Barola braised short rib. The dessert consisted of plated assortment of petit desserts, monogramed chocolate truffle pops and of course wedding cake! A dazzling design by Earth and Sugar decorated with both sugar and real magnolia flowers.

Guests danced the night away to the star powered band Powerhouse. When guests wanted to take advantage of the venue’s beautiful water views, they only need to head outside where we had set-up some lounge furniture under bistro lights. Towards the end of the evening late night snacks were then served which consisted of three types monogramed sliders: amber ale cheddar, crispy onion tangles and crumbled bacon and Portobello sliders. To satisfy guests sweet tooth there were smokin’ tres leches served.

This was a memorable weekend for all where family and friends were able to enjoy a beautiful weekend in Palm Beach to celebrate the union of this wonderful couple.

When it comes to incredibly cool engagement sessions, Jordan and Matt take the cake. Because honestly, what’s cooler than taking your lost-in-love picture in front of some crazy cool murals? Uhm, nothing that’s what. See it all captured by Allen Tsai Photography in The Vault!

From Allen Tsai PhotographyWe really wanted to capture a mix of modern, whimsical, and romantic engagement photos for Jordan and Matt. Miami was the perfect city to photograph them offering a diverse range of environments. The Wynwood walls served as a perfect modern backdrop with it’s vibrant colors and modern art, and was the perfect complement to their wedding venue the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas which is known for its amazing art exhibits. We then headed to South Beach to not only capture their fun and whimsical side, but also to create relaxing images with an intimate feel. We were able to end this wonderful trip with some romantic seaside sunrise images, and can’t wait for their fall wedding with the talented Keestone Events!

From The Bride…In the late summer of 2010, Ferrell had just moved to NYC for law school at NYU and Allen had lived in NYC for a couple of years, since undergrad. A mutual friend brought Allen to a friend’s apartment party in the West Village and they hit it off. A month or so later, and after many attempts by their mutual friend of trying to make Ferrell and Allen run into each other in the City, Ferrell got a call out of the blue from Allen, asking her to meet up for a drink.

Allen had the ring burning a hole in his pocket, and despite Ferrell’s best attempts to keep busy socializing and party hopping one fall Saturday in the city, he said enough was enough and declared that they were going to take a last minute trip upstate for a night away. After taking a train up along the Hudson, they checked into a B&B and later that night he proposed.

Q. What inspired your vision for your wedding?
I wanted a traditional ceremony in the church that raised me since birth, wearing my mother’s own wedding dress that we redesigned in NYC.

For the reception, it was located at the Withers Maguire House, which was the home of my great-great grandparents upon first moving to central Florida. On April 2, 1987 (29 years to the date from our wedding!), it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and has since served as a museum. I wanted guests to feel like they were welcomed into the garden of our family home, even if not technically ours any more!

The goal was to have a warmth to the party, both in the sense of hospitality and weather. We, and a lot of our guests, were on the tail end of a brutal NY winter! We wanted a black-tie feel with a candle lit dinner, complimented by down-to-earth touches like an oyster shucking station served with saltine crackers and rocking chairs on the porch where people could sip on whatever they fancied, whether that be a whiskey old fashioned or rose to welcome the spring.

Most importantly though, we wanted the reception to be a joyous celebration that exuded the happiness and gratitude that Allen and I felt in marrying each other in front of our friends and family. And a celebration it was! We had an amazing 10-piece band with brass horns come in from Atlanta and they had everyone on their feet all night. Adding in lots of dance floor props (sunglasses at night! light-up Minnie-mouse ears as an ode to the happiest place on earth!) never hurts either.

Q. If you did a first look what was your favorite part and why did you decide to see each other before the ceremony?
A. We decided to do a first look to calm the nerves, and also to ensure that we could focus on all of our guests who had travelled from near and far.

Q. What was your favorite design element of your wedding?
A. The flowers ended up being the show stopping piece, in my opinion! I wanted bright pinks and corals in a loose, lush style to compliment the muted dusty blue hints of color elsewhere. I loved the way our dusty blue and gray linens, and especially our hemstitched dinner napkins, ended up being a neutral backdrop to let the flowers to shine. And speaking of a neutral backdrop, we even had flowers in the old oak tree, placed to look as if there were garden roses, peonies and tulips growing straight out of the branches.

Lastly, I loved all of the calligraphy – a close friend designed everything from our invitation suite, to the menu, place cards and signage. It turned something that was already standalone gorgeous into a meaningful piece of the design.

Q. Did you have any DIY details? And if so what were they?
A. Does folding 250+ dinner napkins count!?

In all honesty, planning it from start to finish was the DIY aspect – we scouted the venue, coordinated all the vendors and customized every detail from cocktail stirrers, match books, coozies and even the guest book, where we used calligraphy from our invitations to tie all of the elements together.

Q. What was the most memorable moment from your wedding day?
A. Running through the sea of sparklers at the conclusion of a day where I have never felt more supported or loved – that is what I’ll remember! That, and dancing up a storm.
