Once upon a time, like this past weekend, the most gorgeous day appeared, just perfect enough, for a white wedding in Boca Raton. The day started at The Boca Raton Resort where our bride and her party got ready for the big night ahead. The property was an amazing backdrop to stage our bride and groom for their photos. We had the most fun watching this adoring twosome be playful in front of the camera. On the other side of the lens, Jeff Kolodny & Ruben Senderey, were there to capture each moment. The result were stunning storybook photos.
Brooke and Alex’s love story began just as any new modern day princess would meet her prince… Online, of course! However, they are one of the most classic couples you could meet. Like old souls, they wanted real tradition implemented into their wedding with some modern touches throughout. For example, they wanted a draped chuppah topped with gorgeous flowers and a chandelier. The flowers were white and blush roses, hydrangeas and orchids. The dress was princess-like with plenty of tulle and a pop of bling. The tables were set with crystal and candles. The cake was 4 tiers of raspberry bliss and the hora will never be forgotten.
No one sings the hora quite like South Florida’s Heatwave, and this extended version was full of surprises. All the guests were on their feet, in circles and singing while the groom was in the air, as he decided to do some crowd surfing. Everyone was then shocked by the two costumed characters joining in. They were not birds and mice like in other tales we know, but an elephant and a dalmatian. This was all before the groom recited the most incredible Russian poem in song to his beautiful bride. One only hears about this stuff in fairy tales, but this one came to life right before our eyes.
This group of guests came from all over the world to be a part of this special day. We had some from Russia, Great Britain and even Australia. One could actually feel the love in the room. They may have all spoken different languages, but gathered to celebrate as one. It was truly magical to witness, as love has no language.
As long as you have LOVE, you will have a STYLED event.
Mazel Tov to Brooke & Alex. May you live happily ever after!
