Jillian & David’'s Destination Wedding at the Four Seasons Palm Beach

Posted on June 25, 2013

When I asked Jillian why she and David selected the Four Seasons Palm Beach for their destination wedding, she explained that her sister had married there 6 years ago and had a fabulous experience. Her parents live locally and they knew they were going to have a South Florida wedding – and they definitely wanted a hotel as over half of their wedding guests were out-of-towners. While Jillian and David did visit several Palm Beach venues, they knew right away that the Four Seasons was the right choice for them. As Jillian explained, the Four Seasons Palm Beach is beautiful, modern yet classic with fantastic service and amazing food. She felt they couldn’t go wrong - and they didn’t!

This spectacular wedding featured several shades of metallic silver in the bridesmaid/mother of bride dresses to silver linens as well as champagne menu cards, programs and other details. The bride also wanted a really organic look. This was achieved through the use of branches in the chuppah, to the birch, driftwood and succulents as the centerpieces. All of these ideas were brilliantly brought to life and executed to perfection through the artistic talents of Xquisite Events. The party was rocking all night thanks to the musical talents of Heatwave. Jillian was beaming on her wedding day in a magnificent Vera Wang gown with a belt by Sareh Nouri and finished with sparkling Jimmy Choo shoes.

Jillian and David met 3-1/2 years ago at their mutual friend’s apartment in New York. David had recently been accepted to Michigan Business School and on the night they first met, he was ready to celebrate and grab some drinks with friends. Jillian had been babysitting that night and not in the mood to go out. Her friend convinced her it was a good idea and out she went! Finally, at the end of the part at their friend’s apartment, David and Jillian caught each other’s eyes and started talking. The conversation continued at a bar in Manhattan called Irving Mill and they ended up dancing the night away and as Jillian said, the rest is history!

The guys!

Jillian was extremely involved in all aspects of her wedding plans. As an event planner in New York for a non-profit organization called the Foundation for Jewish Camp, she has more knowledge than most when it comes to planning large and fabulous events. As Jillian and David live in Jersey City, NJ and most of their friends live in New York, this truly was a destination wedding for their friends.

There was no shortage of sweets at this Palm Beach wedding! In addition to the wedding cake, there was a yummy dessert and a decadent candy table.

As a South Florida wedding photographer, I always love learning as much as possible about the brides and grooms whose weddings I photograph. Each has a unique story to tell and often much of their personality shows through in the look and feel of their special day. Jillian and David were a wonderful couple to photograph and I hope that the photos posted here will help you get a good feel for the job and excitement of their incredible destination wedding at the Four Seasons Palm Beach.

And now the finale - a true Kolodny special - the groom pushes his bride on a luggage cart!

Lauri & Josh’s South Florida Wedding Video at the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach

Posted on June 13, 2013

We recently had the pleasure of creating this marvelous video highlight from Lauri and Josh’s fabulous South Florida wedding. In addition to photographing their gorgeous and festive wedding, we provided video coverage as well for the couple. If you are planning a South Florida wedding or a Palm Beach wedding, it is a good idea to look for a company that offers both photography and videography services – this way you will be sure to have a team that will work well together. By having an integrated photo and video team, you have the additional option of having still wedding photos mixed in with your wedding video footage. This effect creates a wonderful “fusion” of photos and video footage. Wedding videography in South Florida is always an awesome addition to any photography package. For this video we had the beautiful background of the Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach. This South Florida venue is actually located in the beach community of Manalapan, just a few blocks south of Palm Beach.

There are so many reasons to have video coverage of your South Florida wedding. Although photography definitely has its advantages, there is nothing like motion and sound – the magic of moving pictures. Reliving these moments through a well produced video is truly incredible. The bride dancing with her father, the groom dancing with his mother, the first kiss as husband and wife – these scenes are beautifully captured in photos, but unmatched as they come to life in a wedding video. Another key factor in including South Florida wedding video coverage, is to memorialize all of the family members and guests who attend the wedding. Having these vibrant images of parents, grandparents and others is a treasure that the bride and groom will be relieved to have in the future to show to their children and grandchildren.

Lauri and Josh selected the music for this two-song highlight and we did the rest. We hope you enjoy this glimpse at their festive South Florida wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach!

Megan & David’s South Florida Wedding at Broken Sound Country Club

Several days ago we received another wonderful thank you from a mother of one of our brides.

Hi Robin and Jeff,
Hope all is well with you two. I just received Megan and David's pictures!!! I want to tell you they are BEAUTIFUL!! Jeff as you may remember I was an event planner for twenty seven years. I have worked with many photographers in my time. You were so WONDERFUL to work with !! Your work is AMAZING!!!!
Take care.
xoxo Adrienne

After a nice note like this we felt that we just had to share a few images. This awesome wedding took place a Broken Sound Country Club in Boca Raton FL.

If you are planning a South Florida wedding, Broken Sound Country Club is definitely a location you should check out. Set in the heart of posh Boca Raton, Broken Sound Country Club is a lush housing development with a newly renovated clubhouse that is absolutely perfect for hosting an extravagant Boca Raton wedding.

Megan and David had such a wedding recently and I was thrilled to be there to photograph the event. They were great to work with and we spent a good amount of time capturing the photos shown here. Not only is the interior of Broken Sound Country Club beautifully renovated and great for photos, but the grounds are pristine, with greenery galore and a magnificent fountain area at the entrance that is always one of my favorite places to shoot.

Boca Raton offers so much as well for out of town guests. First, they can get a gorgeous room at the one and only Boca Raton Resort or Boca Beach Club – two of the most luxurious hotels in town. Guests can also shop as much as they desire, either in the Boca Town Center Mall, where high-end shops and department stores abound or they can stroll through Mizner Park where smaller shops and eateries are situated in a quaint setting. If guests have come from colder climates and crave a bit of Florida sun, the beaches in town are among the best in the county, with South Beach Park and Spanish River Park among the most popular and beautiful spots.

There are many places to host a Boca Raton wedding, but Broken Sound Country Club stands apart as one of the most upscale country club spots in this area. Aside from the magnificent renovation, the food and service at Broken Sound Country Club is superb as well. Megan and David had a most elegant and festive wedding at Broken Sound Country Club. Upon receiving some photos that she had ordered, Megan’s mother took the time to send us this lovely note. We wanted to share it along with some photos from Megan and David’s fabulous South Florida wedding at Broken Sound Country Club.
