Emily & Andy'’s Boca Raton Resort Wedding

Posted on June 14, 2015


This fabulous couple said that Boca Raton Resort was the one and only venue they looked at when deciding where to get married! Having recently moved to Boca, the Boca Raton Resort made a definite impression on them right away. In Emily’s words, “The moment we went in and met Jillian (Stevens) we knew this was our place. We had our ceremony and reception in the Cathedral Room and nothing could have ever compared. It was the perfect place for our guests because it had activities for the children, beaches, and all types of rooms, suites, and condos for bigger families. There is nowhere else we would want to go. We also could do everything on property. We didn't have to use transportation to get from place to place - we held everything on site, the guests loved that!”


Working with Joni Scalzo, owner of Your Special Day by Joni the couple achieved their goal of having a truly gorgeous South Florida wedding. Although there was no specific theme, Emily and Andy wanted to have a simple, yet classic affair. She wanted fun colors such as blues, purples and pinks. She said the navy contrast with the blush turned out even more beautifully than she had ever expected. Brett Woods of Boca by Design was the florist for the event and made Emily’s dream wedding come to life.



As a South Florida wedding photographer, I always ask my clients about how they met and what was special about their first days together. Emily had lots to say: “Andy and I met in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I was in college attending the University of Arkansas and he was working. I went to Arkansas for school from Indiana without knowing a single person. I met Andy my junior year of college. Needless to say, I finished out college dating Andy. After college, I decided to pick up and follow my dream and move closer to my family in Boca Raton. I moved and waited for Andy to follow. We spent many months apart working and establishing what we wanted to do with our future. It was the weekend of St. Patty’s Day 2014 and Andy was coming for a visit to check out Boca to see where he was coming to move - he had never been to Boca. I was going to go pick him up after work and go to a cocktail party at a friend’s house. However, my sister decided to pick me up instead and Andy called and said his flight was delayed and so I thought nothing of it. The cocktail party was on the beach. I got to the beach and I see Andy standing there in a circle of roses and candles down on one knee asking to marry me...I was in total shock. I had no idea he was there or that he was even going to purpose for that matter!



Andy and I love our families and they are a HUGE part of our lives. That is what our wedding was mostly about. I had a Steelers garter that was a total surprise to Andy because he is the BIGGEST Steelers fan I have ever seen in my life. We even have a dog named Steeley. Andy wore the garter on his arm the whole night...we still have it he still loves it. We are just a silly couple that likes Angry Orchard and Rum and Coke from Arkansas living in Boca who loves to dance.”

Her dress and veil were from Angelus Bridal, while her party dress was purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue. Jewelry was by Swarovski and the groom’s suit was by Vera Wang Men’s Wearhouse.
