Julie + Matthew Turnberry Isle

Today I decided to do something different. I decided to have my FABULOUS bride Julie write about her wedding.  Normally I do the quick little Blurb about the wedding, BUT, I’m kind of loving the idea of my brides writing the blogs because it’s through their eyes!   So, with that being said, I present you with The Wedding of Julie + Matthew written by Mrs. Julie Weinstein. #HashtagQueen  #welovethisbride #welovedthiswedding

Julie Bortnick Weinstein here today and I’m so excited to tell you all about my wedding, which took place on June 14, 2014 at Turnberry Isle Miami in Aventura. It truly was the most incredible day of my entire life. Everything turned out exactly as I had always dreamt of it. For the ceremony, I wanted it to be dreamy, ethereal, romantic, and a feeling of almost being in the clouds, and it was just that. I didn’t want any flowers in the ceremony, just draping and lots and lots of candles with amber tones. For the reception I wanted modern yet elegant, white flowers, an insane bar, a white dance floor, lounge area, and purple tones with an amazing band. And the after party I wanted it to resemble a South Beach nightclub with blue lighting, high top tables, and a DJ. Well, let me tell you….between Sara and Karen at Always Flowers they gave me everything I ever wanted for a wedding. WOW. I was truly blown away. I would have to say some highlights from the evening would have to be crowd surfing, a champagne toast on the golf course, and jumping in the pool at the end of the night. It was an epic ending to an epic night. The party never stopped (thanks to Powerhouse!) and I’ve never danced so much in my entire life. It was magical in every single way. The photos show all the magic and OMG we are obsessed with the photos. Thank you Andrew King from Luv Rox!  

THANK YOU EVERYONE!
XOXO

ABBY + ALEX

Donna Newman  Photography captured the spirit of this beautiful wedding so perfectly. A+A wanted a quintessential Palm Beach Breakers wedding fit with chic flair and  elegance!   We are head over heels for this couple!  Every single person working this wedding went out of their way to tell me how much they ADORED this couple. It was a TRUE PLEASURE planning this wedding!  They were not only one gorgeous pair but they exude all of the love, kindness, sincerity and sense of humor one could hope for. Our favorite detail might have been the flower back drop for the band, AND, the hand made cake topper of Abby and Alex’s beloved dogs!  Kym Bichon at The Breakers once again went over and beyond executing perfection in food and service details! WOOT WOOT FOR THE BREAKERS!  And shout out of course to Karen Cohen of Always Flowers (as always) making the brides vision a reality) OMG and LOOK AT THE CAKE!

THANK YOU ABBY + ALEX FOR HAVING US!

XOXOXO

{ victoria + jesus} The Four Seasons Palm Beach

Victoria + Jesus’ wedding event was held at the Four Seasons Resort in Palm Beach, photographed  by the amazing  Chris Joriann and styled by Xquisite Events.  The bride and her dad headed to St Ann’s in a Vintage Rolls Royce and Victoria truly was a vision walking down the aisle in her Private Label Couture Gown by New Orleans Designer Yvonne La Fleur!   The Bride and Groom reside in New Orleans and chose Palm Beach so Jesus’s family from Argentina could attend the wedding!  Jesus was equally stylish in his Carolina Herrera Tuxedo!  Thank you to Chris Joriann for these amazing photos and it was truly a pleasure being part of this super intimate wedding!

A&R Vizcaya

Adrienne and Ryan’s elegant Miami wedding took place at the gorgeous and historic Vizcaya Museum and Garden and included just enough rustic, yet beautiful, details to dress up the natural setting.  As you’ll soon also see, these two have some serious style and grace and totally ROCKED their wedding!  – I totally loved Ryan’s super dapper look, and Adrienne rocked her  jaw-dropping gorgeous dress – just wait until you see these AMAZING photos captured by Genya of  VUE PHOTOGRAPHY and let it be known that these photos are PROOF to the importance of doing a “first look” and utilizing the natural day light!   Once again, John Buick of Xquisite Events did an OUTSTANDING job of making Adrienne and Ryan’s vision a reality!    Matt Mac Pherson of Frost Lighting BLEW us away with his amazing lighting design! This wedding was a HUGE success and every time I work at Vizcaya I truly must call upon the vendors I trust to do an outstanding job because everyone knows this is NOT an easy venue due to the short window of set up time.  Parkland Chef  TOTALLY blew everyone away serving outstanding food and supplying the wedding guests with outstanding service!  Thank you everyone who had their hand in this wedding ESPECIALLY Adrienne and Ryan.  This was one of my most favorite weddings of the season!  PS…I love that the bride did the LIMBO in the after party!

XOXOXO

Morgans EPIC Bat Mitzvah

When I first met Morgan’s mom Joanne we were discussing a theme for Morgan and having the hardest time, HOWEVER, the word she kept using to describe Morgan was, “HAPPY”  Over and over again she would tell me about Morgans smile and how Morgan is always laughing!  My instinct immediately was to go with this for a theme.  How can any theme be better than one of Positivity and Happiness?  Morgans Bat Mitzvah went down as “THE MITZVAH OF THE SEASON” So much of this event was BEYOND ANYTHING WORDS CAN DESCRIBE!  Feast your eyes on the amazing images courtesy of Cengiz of Adagion Studio  I am attaching so many photos because so much about this day was beautiful. I want to tell the WHOLE STORY for this event.  We LOVE LOVE LOVE this family and WE LOVE MORGAN!  Big Shout Out to Always Flowers  Jeff Gold from Zazz  MY AWESOME FOURSOME team of Guru’s for assembling 300 boxes of Melissa Cupcakes with 12 cupcakes in each. In theory thats really 3,600 cupcakes they assembled for me.  This event had it ALL…. from an Eyelash Bar to Amazing Scented Candle Favors for the Adults, Melissa Cupcakes, Amazing Hooded Shirts for the Kids and Blow Up’s around the room of POSITIVE and HAPPY quotes from Morgan!   I am already up at night thinking about what we will do for Morgans little Brothers in 2016!  They are TWINS so Its DOUBLE TROUBLE!

XOXOXO
