Jillian & David’'s Destination Wedding at the Four Seasons Palm Beach

Posted on June 25, 2013


When I asked Jillian why she and David selected the Four Seasons Palm Beach for their destination wedding, she explained that her sister had married there 6 years ago and had a fabulous experience. Her parents live locally and they knew they were going to have a South Florida wedding – and they definitely wanted a hotel as over half of their wedding guests were out-of-towners. While Jillian and David did visit several Palm Beach venues, they knew right away that the Four Seasons was the right choice for them. As Jillian explained, the Four Seasons Palm Beach is beautiful, modern yet classic with fantastic service and amazing food. She felt they couldn’t go wrong - and they didn’t!


This spectacular wedding featured several shades of metallic silver in the bridesmaid/mother of bride dresses to silver linens as well as champagne menu cards, programs and other details. The bride also wanted a really organic look. This was achieved through the use of branches in the chuppah, to the birch, driftwood and succulents as the centerpieces. All of these ideas were brilliantly brought to life and executed to perfection through the artistic talents of Xquisite Events. The party was rocking all night thanks to the musical talents of Heatwave. Jillian was beaming on her wedding day in a magnificent Vera Wang gown with a belt by Sareh Nouri and finished with sparkling Jimmy Choo shoes.



Jillian and David met 3-1/2 years ago at their mutual friend’s apartment in New York. David had recently been accepted to Michigan Business School and on the night they first met, he was ready to celebrate and grab some drinks with friends. Jillian had been babysitting that night and not in the mood to go out. Her friend convinced her it was a good idea and out she went! Finally, at the end of the part at their friend’s apartment, David and Jillian caught each other’s eyes and started talking. The conversation continued at a bar in Manhattan called Irving Mill and they ended up dancing the night away and as Jillian said, the rest is history!

The guys!


Jillian was extremely involved in all aspects of her wedding plans. As an event planner in New York for a non-profit organization called the Foundation for Jewish Camp, she has more knowledge than most when it comes to planning large and fabulous events. As Jillian and David live in Jersey City, NJ and most of their friends live in New York, this truly was a destination wedding for their friends.

There was no shortage of sweets at this Palm Beach wedding! In addition to the wedding cake, there was a yummy dessert and a decadent candy table.


As a South Florida wedding photographer, I always love learning as much as possible about the brides and grooms whose weddings I photograph. Each has a unique story to tell and often much of their personality shows through in the look and feel of their special day. Jillian and David were a wonderful couple to photograph and I hope that the photos posted here will help you get a good feel for the job and excitement of their incredible destination wedding at the Four Seasons Palm Beach.


And now the finale - a true Kolodny special - the groom pushes his bride on a luggage cart!
