Emily and Rich’s South Florida Wedding at The Breakers, Palm Beach

Posted on May 9, 2011

Every time I photograph a wedding at The Breakers I can’t wait to see what fabulous décor and flowers have been created by The Breakers’ own Design Studio. Cameron Keating and his team never cease to amaze me with their wondrous creations. Emily and Rich’s recent wedding was an added testament to the Design Studios’ talents and also to the talents of Trina Chaney-Hoo and The Planning Company who coordinated the wedding.

As a South Florida wedding photographer, shooting at a venue such as The Breakers is a privilege for many reasons – least of which is that the location affords an endless array of breathtaking settings in which to photograph the bride and groom. With that said, I am always looking for new ways to present couples at this venue and to feature its most unique aspects. Emily and Rich were amazing subjects and I had a great time working with them to create some of the shots you’ll see in this post.

Many thanks to Trina Chaney-Hoo and her team for putting together the wedding description below. They did such a great job, that we’ve decided to present it pretty much as is. They worked closely with both Emily and Rich in their planning process and were able to provide great insight into how the entire wedding came together.

Details about Emily & Rich’s wedding:

Dress: Amsale Blue Label Collection -- “Bijou” in Café – purchased at Boca Raton Bridal

Shoes: Manolo Blahnik

Venue: Emily told us that she used to come to lunch with her mom at The Breakers long before Rich was in the picture and she would peak her head in the Mediterranean Ballroom and say “I’m going to have my wedding here some day.”
Every time we stopped by The Breakers for a tasting or a meeting with The Design Studio we’d continued to peak our heads in the ballroom and Emily would start tearing up because she was so excited that her dream from years before was finally coming true! And of course our team was thrilled her choice because we were excited to work along side our good friends Jeff Fowler, Cameron Keating and the rest of the fabulous Breakers’ staff.

Theme: The breathtaking ceremony on The Ocean Lawn was highlighted with pops of powder blue in the Jenny Yoo bridesmaids dresses, the ceremony programs and the couples monogram on the back of each guest’s Lucite chair. Pearl and Diamond accents were used throughout the décor because they are Rich and Emily’s respective birthstones. For the reception in the Mediterranean Ballroom, Emily wanted to enhance the beautifully ornate details of the room with ivory and champagne hues. And of course, Cameron from the Design Studio took her vision and created a stunning décor palette.

Cake: Yes it was edible! And dusted with edible gold! Emily wanted it to mimic the pattern on her dress. It was perfect!

About the Couple: Rich and Emily are a sweet, sweet couple and you can tell they are genuinely so happy together. When we were in the wedding planning process they were always checking up on everyone in our office. Sending us sweet “get well soon” e-mails when we were out sick or condolences when one of us lost a family member. Simply put, they are good people, with good hearts. We’re so happy for them and are already planning dinner together in the near future to “catch up.” They’re heading to the South of France for their Honeymoon in a few weeks.

Details Produced by The Planning Company:
Our staff’s graphic artist (Kristen) created a custom monogram that was carried throughout the event from the Lucite chair design, dance floor lighting, the menu cards and even on the guest towels in the restroom.

There's no place like The Breakers!!

Emily's reaction to seeing the ballroom all decked out for her wedding - priceless!

Yummy appetizers - Breakers style!

Triple delight of mini cupcakes. Better than Cupcake Wars!

Strawberry shortcake like only the Breakers can do.

Yes - even the gold decoration on the cake is edible!

While guests wined and dined at the reception, Door tags were placed on every guest’s hotel room that declared, “Please Do Not Disturb! We are partied all night at Rich and Emily’s Wedding!“ Local wedding guest were greeted with valet tags on their car mirrors wishing them a safe journey home. And lastly, every guest received a “Wedding Recovery Kit” complete with Tums, Advil, Starbucks Instant Coffee, Water and a Silk Light Blocking Mask for the morning after their big night of fun with the bride and groom!
