Justine & Jeremy – Tropical Elegance at The Breakers, Palm Beach.

Posted on November 10, 2014

This post has been partially modified from a post now appearing in BeachBride.com


Who would’ve known that tropical and elegance can be put together? Whenever brides and grooms decide on a beach wedding, there’s some sort of casualness and laid-back vibe present during the event, it’s almost always uncanny. I guess it’s because we associate beaches with relaxation and vacation. But for Justine & Jeremy, they were able to recreate the beach vibe but also, add some elegance to it. All thanks to their amazing reception set-up that looked so amazing with all the metallic details. The refined aura of silver plus the casual vibe of the sand equals to something unique and gorgeous. As a South Florida wedding photographer, I always love photographing elegant weddings at The Breakers. Creating Breakers wedding pictures is nothing short of a pleasure since the location has so many fabulous places to shoot.


I thought - what a great place to photograph the bride's shoes? Why not in the seafood bar? The Breakers has many, many locations that many photographers don't even think to utilize when taking wedding pictures. Justine and Jeremy's South Florida destination wedding at The Breakers was intimate, but afforded me many opportunities to create some incredible Breakers wedding photos.


Justine and Jeremy were an absolute pleasure to work with. As a South Florida wedding photographer, I often do not have the opportunity to meet my clients until their wedding day - and this was no different. We immediately connected and both Justine and Jeremy were enthusiastic participants as we roamed around The Breakers to create some amazing photos.


How did you meet?

The story for Jeremy and I began five years ago, as we met through mutual friends. It was love at first sight for us and after only after three months together, we knew that we were meant to be husband and wife. Our relationship works because we respect one another and the characteristics that one person lacks, the other makes up for. We are the epitome of a team.


One of our favorite moments from the wedding was the First Look. The love and emotions that we have and hold for one another could definitely be felt and seen by all. At this moment, we definitely felt like the most special couple in the world a couple that were having their dream wedding surrounded by friends and family and excited to spend the rest of our lives together. Another favorite moment of ours, was when the Priest, Father Leo began to cry because he could sense and feel the love that we have for one another.


How did he propose?

In the spring of 2013, Jeremy and I went for a walk on a trail that we often walked on near our house and one that we walked on during one of our first dates getting to know on another. We stopped on a bridge that overlooks a river and were talking and laughing when all of a sudden Jeremy got down on one knee and asked me to marry him… well you can tell now how that went!


Simply breathtaking. Leave it to the Design Studio at The Breakers to create decor of unimaginable beauty.


Tell us something about the wedding.

When deciding on a wedding destination, the ocean was our first choice. The beach has always been a special place for us, as it is always our “go to” vacation place. We visited many places, the Breakers being one of the venues that we looked at in Florida. After seeing the Breakers in Palm Beach, nothing else could compare and we found ourselves comparing everything to the Breakers. It was definitely our idea of a beautiful destination wedding. We knew that this would be the perfect place to host our friends and family from Michigan, as the service, the beauty and the amenities of the Breakers is unparalleled from the moment you pull into the drive.


Justine & Jeremy live in Michigan and decided to have a destination wedding. The ocean was their first choice. It has always been a special “go to” place for them. After visiting many venues, nothing else compared to The Breakers in Palm Beach! What a perfect place to host their friends and family from Michigan for a fabulous destination beach wedding!


So delicious. Just feast your eyes on the magnificent cuisine of The Breakers. The sundae at the bottom left is a most popular choice at Breakers weddings. Sascha LaGreca of The Breakers assisted the couple in making sure their special day was truly one to remember.


Congratulations to this gorgeous couple and many thanks for a memorable South Florida destination wedding at The Breakers!
