As a South Florida wedding photographer I get to photography some of the most beautiful wedding all across the start. In case you didn’t know, South Florida is a wedding capitial of the country. There are so many reasons why a recently engaged couple would want to have their wedding here in South Florida. One major reason is the beautiful beaches that are in South Florida, Up and down the coast are beach communities such as South Beach, Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Delray Beach, and of course Palm Beach. Palm Beach is the most elegant of all the beaches in Florida. If you are familiar with Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Worth Ave in Palm Beach is similar but in Florida. In Palm Beach newly engaged couples have the choice of several very upscale luxury wedding venues. Some of these include, The Breakers, The Four Seasons and the Eau Palm Beach.
Lauren and Brett’s beautiful wedding at the Eau, Palm Beach was a pleasure to shoot. This couple choose this venue, because they love the beach! Brett loves to surf and swim while Lauren enjoys soaking up the sun. Because of their love for the ocean and the beach the Eau Palm Beach’s location was perfect – right on a beautiful stretch of beach, this hotel offers the fun in the sun wedding experience as well as a super classy interior and magnificent indoor setting.
Lauren was beautiful in a Romona Keveza gown and Jimmy Choo shoes.
Since this was a destination wedding for most of the wedding guests attending. – including the ones who live in Florida! The Bride and Groom wanted a South Florida wedding venue that was accommodating as well as on the beach and elegant. They also wanted their guests to feel relaxed and like they were on vacation. The Eau Palm Beach checks all the boxes. Lauren and Brett also chose to host all of their wedding festivities at the Eau as well making it really easy for everyone who attended. To assist, the couple hired Jamie Lipman of The Absolute Event who did a terrific job of managing everything on the wedding day.
The magnificent décor for Lauren and Brett’s wedding was created by Daniel Events. The bride and groom wanted décor that was classy & traditional yet incuded the current trends such as LED lighting, crystals, white dance floor and couch seating. Daniel Events hit the target by creating the couples vision of a “WOW” and also creating a ballroom that was both magical and warm as well as ultra classy. Since This was a traditional Jewish wedding, the beautiful chuppah really set the stage and made for a awesome looking wedding ceremony
Working as a photographer in South Florida I get to photograph many different type of weddings. Some of the weddings I photograph are as large as 250 guest and other are as small as 40 guests. I also photograph some elopements. Given that South Florida is such a great vacation spot often couples decide that they want to have a small wedding just for two in the beach. If this is the case a short 2 hour wedding package works well.
In the case of elopements I will usually start with some getting ready bride photos. Then walk with the groom and the reverend or rabbi to the beach ceremony location. Often the hotel wedding coordinator with walk the bride to the beach for the start of the ceremony. After the beach wedding ceremony I’ll spend another hour taking some creative portraits giving the bride and groom some beautiful wedding memories.
Larger wedding require more time and planning. For these weddings, I’ll usually start 3-4 hours before the ceremony with getting ready photos, then orchestrate the first look between the bride and groom. After the first look, we often spend another hour or so creating beautiful bride and groom photos before moving on to the family photo session.
If you are searching for the Best South Florida Wedding Photographer for your needs then I believe you should spend some time calling and speaking with several different photographers. It’s also important view some complete weddings. Viewing a complete wedding from an elopement or a 200 person wedding will give you the best feel for a photographers work. By complete weddings I mean all the pictures taken at a single wedding. This will give you an idea of all the different types of photos that a photographer can take during the wedding ceremony as well as during the reception and getting ready session.
When Lauren and Brett, who met years ago she said “It was love at first sight!”, this was her dream wedding come true. Every aspect of her wedding was perfect and you can see their happiness in her eyes. I was honored to be part of this incredible wedding and hope that these wedding pictures give the viewer a feel for this beautiful Eau Palm Beach Beach wedding. Over the years I have I photographed many beautiful weddings at the Eau Palm Beach, many of them traditional Jewish weddings such as this one. We can’t post them all, but we hope that you get a good sense of our photography coverage and the magnificence of the Eau Palm Beach from this glimpse of Lauren and Brett’s Eau Palm Beach wedding.
