Ali & Jason’s Destination Wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach

Posted on June 16, 2009


Although the bride’s parents live locally, this was a destination wedding for both the bride and groom who currently live in Chicago. What a fabulous destination wedding it was! They were fortunate enough to have friends and family fly in for the wedding from all over the country and even the world! It was amazing to see such a diverse group of people – from places as far away as Dubai, Peru, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Israel, Canada, Mexico and Aruba. With the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach as their location, Ali and Jason and their guests had the best of everything – a beautiful hotel, amazing food and top-notch service. Danielle Sir Louis at the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach and her team coordinated the event for the hotel, while Cheryl Clisby and her team were retained to handle every detail of the event before and on the day of to insure all went smoothly.

Despite some very rainy weather early in the day, Ali and Jason were excited and enthusiastic about enjoying their wedding day and just going with the flow. I had to find some creative spots to do photos, since it was pretty wet outside and the hotel was filled with people. At some point during the day, things began to dry out so we ventured outside a little to get a few shots, including a large group shot of their bridal party. As a South Florida wedding photographer I have learned to adjust to whatever the weather situation might be – spring can definitely be rainy here and one needs to be able to work around that and still create amazing images. I am sure that while planning their Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach wedding, Ali and Jason took into account the fact that the venue would provide them with many amazing locations to do their pictures.

A few wedding details: Ali’s stunning gown was by Amsale, while her shoes were Cole Haan (fitted inside with Nike Air!) The groom’s tux was by Armani and the bridesmaids’ dresses were by Jenny Yoo. Drew T rocked the reception – guests were dancing late into the night! Ali said that Drew T added a Latin flair to his music selections that was really important, given that many of her side of the family came from Peru. The floral arrangements were designed by Dalsimer.

We want to thank Ali and Jason and their families for being so terrific to work with on this very special occasion.
