Alissa & Mark'’s Four Seasons Palm Beach Destination Wedding

Posted on June 13, 2014

Albert and Liz shot the amazing wedding featured below!


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.





Many thanks to Alissa and Mark and their families for having us capture their special Palm Beach destination wedding in pictures and video!

Andrea & Daniel’s South Florida Wedding at Boca Resort & The Addison

Posted on June 6, 2014


Albert recently photographed Andrea and Daniel’s gorgeous wedding at The Addison in Boca Raton. Starting at the magnificent Boca Raton Resort, Albert photographed the bride and groom and their families and wedding party before heading over to The Addison for their ceremony and reception.


Andrea and Daniel explained that they selected The Addison because they wanted a beautiful place with character and absolutely fell in love with the Mediterranean ambience of the venue. The Addison is renowned for its superb cuisine and attention to detail. Additionally, the two-story ballroom and courtyard has a rustic feel with traditional southern European architecture that exudes elegance. In order to tailor the décor to their personal tastes, Andrea and Daniel incorporated contemporary floral designs that blended seamlessly with the venue.





The couple met at a party during Andrea’s second week at University. Daniel set his eyes on her and asked for her number. The next day, he sent a text message and they met up at the library. While studying at the library, they ate some sushi that was delivered to them by Andrea’s best friend and they hit it off from there. It was love at second sight!















As for this South Florida wedding, Andrea’s mother was the lead floral designer and created some breathtaking designs for the wedding and an absolutely spectacular bouquet for Andrea! The bride looked radiant in a Lazaro gown and Jimmy Choo shoes. Their guests were a diverse group, traveling from all over the world – from Los Angeles, New York, Mexico, Columbia, the UK and Russia. They very much enjoyed dancing to Latin music, especially Merengue. This was a South Florida wedding to remember and we hope you enjoy these fabulous photos courtesy of Albert. Many thanks to Andrea and Daniel as well for being so fabulous to work with!

Gabrielle & Jeff’s Engagement Shoot at the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa

Posted on June 5, 2014


I recently enjoyed photographing Gabrielle and Jeff’s engagement session at the magnificent Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. They decided on this location for their engagement photos, as they are getting married there next year and knew the place had everything they would want to use as perfect backdrops for their photos. It’s the perfect choice for a South Florida destination wedding. Cheryl Clisby, wedding planner extraordinaire, will be planning and managing this fabulous South Florida wedding.



This gorgeous couple from New York City was an absolute pleasure to photograph. As a South Florida wedding photographer, it is always refreshing to work with couples from somewhere else that visit South Florida and are excited to be here and enjoy shooting in our tropical landscape. Of course, we made great use of the pristine South Florida beach right outside the hotel for some of their pictures.



In addition to roaming around the stunning interior of the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, we also made good use of the spa as well. The spa there is a great place for a South Florida wedding photographer to take amazing shots. I just love the swings over the pool of water – what a unique spot! There are just too many great places to shoot at this venue to mention. We did have some fun getting a bicycle out for some shots, strategically shooting with a Bentley in the background




As far as a wedding venue, the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is one of the classiest and most unique in all of South Florida. Formerly the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach, the new Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa has established itself also as a 5 star luxury resort, but not stodgy or “old-school.” It has almost a more relaxed atmosphere to it, yet while maintaining an elegant ambiance with every amenity imaginable. The weddings we have photographed there since the Eau became the Eau have been nothing less than fabulous and we expect Gabrielle and Jeff’s wedding to be exceptional as well! If their engagement shoot is any indication, I know I will LOVE working with Gabrielle and Jeff at their upcoming wedding – we are going to get some killer shots for sure. I am very much looking forward to photographing their South Florida destination wedding next spring at the one and only Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa!
