Niki and David’s Destination Wedding at the Breakers Palm Beach

Posted on October 20, 2011

I recently had a great time photographing Niki and David’s destination wedding at the magnificent Breakers in Palm Beach. Currently living in Michigan, Niki and David decided to have their destination wedding at the Breakers after becoming engaged there in August, 2010. David popped the question on the famous Ocean Lawn – which is exactly where they planned to get married. Their weekend getaway to the Breakers Palm Beach turned into a dream come true as their wedding plans began to emerge.


Niki and David’s story goes back 5 years, though. They met in 2005 through a mutual friend, Maria who essentially became their matchmaker – and eventually Niki’s maid of honor. The couple immediately hit it off and spent the next five years moving and traveling together all the while growing as a couple. They moved around the country – from Michigan to Bethesda, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, Boca Raton FL and then back to Birmingham, Michigan. Their love story also included the constant companionship of the rest of their family – their two Labrador retrievers, Panzer and Meeka.


Their wedding, just this past September, included a guest list in which 95% of the people had to travel to the Breakers from other parts of the country. It was a true Palm Beach destination wedding! Niki and David’s wedding officiant was a long time family friend who got ordained last summer specifically just to marry them. The couple worked closely with him to write the ceremony and make it a very personal reflection of themselves.





Niki was a most radiant bride in her Lazzaro gown and Jimmy Choo wedding shoes. The weather that day in September was typical of South Florida – sort of hazy, with a chance of rain. There was a fear that rain would require the ceremony to be moved into the Gold Room from the Ocean Lawn, however the sun came out at the last minute and Niki and David had the ceremony of their dreams on the famous Ocean Lawn at the Breakers. Niki and David’s dreams of a Breakers wedding were fully realized and made all the more incredible by the amazing talents of the Breakers Design Studio and personal assistance of Katie Gillespie, Catering Manager for Weddings by the Breakers.


As a South Florida wedding photographer, I photograph many Palm Beach destination weddings for couples just like Niki and David. For these “nearly newlyweds”, planning a wedding at the Breakers is likely one of the most exciting and fulfilling things they will ever do. There is no more magnificent setting – both inside and out – than the Breakers Palm Beach. The flawless architecture, superbly manicured grounds, impeccable food and service are simply unparalleled anywhere in South Florida. As always, I look forward to photographing any wedding at the Breakers and strive to make each one a masterpiece in terms of the photographic art I produce. With an enthusiastic couple, fabulous location and the expertise of the staff at the Breakers, there are no limits to the fun I can have photographing a wedding at the Breakers!

Chris & Jenny's Wedding at the Ritz Carlton, Palm Beach

Posted on October 6, 2011

We recently received this wonderful letter from the groom's mother from a wedding we did last year at the fabulous Ritz Carlton Palm Beach. This family has been so appreciative and simply a pleasure to work with through the entire process - from before the wedding right through to their final albums being ordered. We have loved working with them and wanted to revisit this event and share this snapshot of their gorgeous Palm Beach wedding with you. This was truly a fabulous Ritz Carlton Palm Beach wedding.


Jenny was a stunning bride - just radiant!
