We loved getting to be at the famous Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida for this blue and white beauty. Our bride was girlie, and wanted lots of feminine touches like butterflies, lacy patterns, and lush florals. So, Lettered Olive was really able to bring that in on the printing pieces. The save the date featured an engagement photo and die cut edging. The wedding welcome packet included a mixture of patterned backings envoking european tiles, and of course butterfly stamps! Thank you to Christian Oth for the photographs.
Because this was a destination wedding, we had to do over the top beach bags as the wedding welcome gift. We stocked them with turkish towels in the color scheme, hand painted butterfly cookies by Sweet Guilt, and local taffy treats. And since the couple lives in Texas , chips and handmade salsa was a must was a nod to home.
Our bride donned bridal shoes from Louboutin, and a custom gown by Mackenzie Brittingham from Stanley Korshak Bridal in Dallas, TX. Florals were done in conjunction with the Breakers wedding floral team. So, we also sourced vintage ribbon and had her initials embroidered for her “something blue”.
A traditional ceremony was held at the groom’s childhood church. One little touch I love doing when the ceremony is offsite is to have a special decorated “just married” vehicle for the bride and groom to ride in alone to the reception.
Guests were received at the Breakers for cocktail hour in the courtyard. Interactive oysters on the half shell were served by Oysters XO. A garden style table covered in bright florals served as the escort card station. Die cut butterfly cards on garden stakes were handwritten with names and table numbers.
The dining room was set with a mixture of long and square tables topped with custom blue linen cloths, and alternating taller and smaller florals. Miniature lamps and a sprinkling of candlelight add an old world ambiance.
A “sweet” dessert table featured a hand painted blue and white floral wedding cake by The Breakers. And, we brought in the bride’s favorite French Macaroons.
After dinner, guests danced on a custom blue and white patterned dance floor. We set a floral photo booth wall, for guests to pose “Vanity fair” style. And, there was an after party for guests to dance until the wee hours.
