Alissa and Mark live in New York City but chose the fabulous Four Seasons Palm Beach for their South Florida destination wedding. According to Alissa, they selected the Four Seasons Palm Beach because it was a “small intimate venue that provided an unobstructed view of the ocean without being on the sand for the ceremony.” While not tiny at all, the Four Seasons Palm Beach does provide an intimate feel to it somehow. It is not as gargantuan as other hotels in the area, yet it’s large enough to host a nice size wedding such as Alissa and Mark’s of about 150 people, as well as easily host events that are larger and of course, much smaller. Either way, guests can enjoy the five-star amenities the Four Seasons Palm Beach has to offer, not to mention the incomparable cuisine and the expertise of a top notch event planning staff.
This couple first met at a concert in New York City, but nothing transpired from that first meeting. Then, six months later they randomly ran into each other at a bar and learned that they were living within two blocks of each other. They became engaged two years later on the 17th hole at Fenway Golf Club in Westchester, New York.
Albert positioned himself to get the faces at the start of the ceremony. Liz positioned herself the get the beautiful back of the dress shot above.
As for their wedding details, Alissa and Mark had an elegant traditional Jewish wedding that included a ketubah that was custom designed by a designer in New York. The designs were from their first vacation together, where they got engaged and their initials. Alissa’s unique gown was custom designed by Jennifer Dule of JR Dule Couture in Manhattan and her jewelry was by Penny Preville. Mark wore a supremely classy ensemble consisting of a Paul Stuart Phineas Cole tuxedo and velvet evening slippers. He also wore green Corgi socks. Mark’s black onyx and mother of pearl Paul Stuart cufflink and stud set were given to him by Alissa as a wedding gift.
Many other vendors contributed to the success of this unforgettable South Florida wedding. The music for the evening was provided by Tropics Entertainment’s band, Higher Ground – they did a great job at keeping the dance floor busy all night! The breathtaking floral arrangements were created by David Dalsimer of Dalsimer-Atlas. Hair and make-up services were provided by Salon 770. Rabbi Mark H. Kula officiated. Last but certainly not least, Crystal Prante of the Four Seasons Palm Beach oversaw the event for the hotel.
