Romantic Palm Beach Vow Renewal

My heart just skipped a beat after seeing this gorgeous vow renewal from Simply Sarah Photography. Not only does it feature an ethereal wedding dress, lush blooms, a romantic setting with an old-world feel and one stunning Trumpet & Horn ring, but it also features a couple whose love will instantly bring a smile to your face. See all the pretty in The Vault!


From Simply Sarah Photography…I recently had the pleasure of capturing Brittany and Ben and the darling love they share.

From The Bride…Nearly ten years ago Brian and I started dating. We had mutual friends in common and we connected through Myspace. We gradually moved from Myspace to AOL instant messenger. We were both 18 years old and still living at home at the time and we communicated solely through IM for about 2 months or so (even though we only lived about 15 minutes away from each other). One night we were talking about our weekend plans and discovered randomly that we would both be going to the same concert in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We decided to finally meet up. I called him when I got to the show and he was already there. He told me to meet him inside and like something out of a movie we walked right past each other while on the phone, made quick eye contact and turned around to say at the same time “Brittany?” “Ben?” … And that was how we met! We started talking more frequently after that and began spending time together. We were young and we took things slow. A few months later we started dating and we dated for three years before tying the knot! We just celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary on September 20th 2015. I feel that my marriage with Ben is the greatest gift I have ever received. I know there are a million cliche lines I could insert here that have been said over and over again, but I really am so thankful to have found my true match. There are almost no words to describe the feeling that, no matter what happens in our lives, we will always have each other. The peace and comfort that is found in that simple fact is indescribable. “In sickness and in health, in good times and bad, until death do us part.” The vows we made on our wedding day still ring so true. These past seven years are proof of our overwhelming love and commitment to each other. I know in the coming years we will embark on new journeys, make new memories and there may be times that we are faced with difficult obstacles. I believe that when we are faced with those obstacles, it’s how we overcome them that defines our love.

From Lauren KinseyThe Breakers has always held a special place in Lindsay’s heart, as this is the place she has been visiting with her family with for almost her whole life, so there was no question when it came to planning Lindsay & Matt’s wedding where it would take place. Lindsay and Matt married on the grand terrace with a formal reception in the ballroom, and no detail was overlooked. Lindsay’s & Matt’s families are some of the most gracious and kind people I have been fortunate to work with, and this black tie wedding was something truly spectacular.

Palm Beach Wedding at The Flagler Museum

In the words of this bride, “We built a sense of family into every detail.”  And in my humble opinion, that’s the best way to go. Reciting vows at the very same church the bride’s parent wed 33 years earlier, this couple intentionally crafted a meaningful day with Lauren Daversa Events by their side. Read on for the details and swing by THE VAULT for more moments captured by Jessica Lorren.

From The Bride…It was late summer 2008, and my husband spotted me at a restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. Flash-forward to 2011 he saw me again, but this time in the halls of our graduate medical school. Little did I know that these spottings would turn into a crush, and much more thanks to a mutual friend who formally introduced us on a blind date a few months later.

After a year and a half of courtship, my now husband surprised me with a rooftop engagement proposal overlooking one of the hospitals associated with our academic health system. This not only symbolized a place that brought the two of us together, but also that we found love through our passion for medicine. As two very traditional and family oriented individuals, without hesitation we chose my hometown of West Palm Beach, Florida, for our wedding where I am a fourth generation resident. We envisioned an elegant and classic wedding with an old Florida flare, and found that the Flagler Museum, which is rich in history and overlooks the West Palm Beach skyline, was the perfect reception venue.

We built a sense of family into every detail. Our wedding was held at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church where my parents were married thirty-three years ago, and where I worshiped throughout my childhood. I wore the cathedral length veil my mother had worn on her wedding day, and the same talented organist who played at my parent’s wedding also played at ours. The antique diamond brooch, which I placed in my hair, and my earrings were both from my late maternal grandmother –my namesake.

We ensured the reception had special touches to both of us. The hors d’oeuvres and late night snacks were passed on sterling silver trays from my late maternal grandmother and late maternal great grandmother. The signature cocktail was in honor of my father. I remember him sharing the same drink with my mother on the dock behind our home consisting of Mount Gay Rum and a splash of fresh lime juice.

Naturally, the Docktail was a fitting name. In place of a groom’s cake, my husband felt a personalized bourbon bar would best represent his Southern roots. He chose several different bourbons based on his past experiences – most importantly ones that brought back memories of good times that he shared with friends. The décor on the bourbon bar included our medical textbooks, and a mortal and pestle previously used by my husband’s maternal grandfather, who was a pharmacist. After all, bourbon was utilized as a cough syrup in the day! On the dance floor, my husband surprised our guests and me with yellow ruler suspenders in memory of my maternal grandfather, who wore such suspenders as he ran my family’s hardware business.

To close out the evening, we served Krispy Kreme donuts, which originate in Winston Salem, North Carolina, the hometown of my husband’s undergraduate school, Wake Forest University. These treats are also the main ingredient in a well known late night dessert at the University of Virginia, the Grillswith. We both could not have chosen a more bittersweet ending to an unforgettable day!
