Boca Raton Resort and Club an Awesome place for a South Florida Wedding.

Posted on June 13, 2018

BELOW: This photo was taken on the croquet course at Boca Raton Resort and Club. This part of the property is located on a lawn furthest from the water. It is much less windy at this location. However with a few light tugs of the veil it flew up to help create this beautiful veil flying photo.


As an experienced wedding photographer, I have had the opportunity to shoot a wide variety of people at venues all over Florida and the Caribbean. South Florida offers some amazing wedding venues. It doesn’t matter if you are in Palm Beach, Broward or Dade counties, if it’s in South Florida I’m sure there is an awesome wedding venue close by. Having all these great locations gives me the ability to not only experiment with my art but also push the envelope of creativity as well. Some of my favorite wedding venues are: The Breakers, The Eau Palm Beach, Vizcaya in Miami, and The Harbor Beach Marriott in Fort Lauderdale. There are also a ton of Country Clubs and Golf Clubs as well.

BELOW: One of the things I love most about Boca Resort is the huge property with many buildings. Every structure at Boca Raton Resort and Club is unique and has an interesting design. Normally clients ask for photos in the most popular locations. The Grand Staircase, The Fountain in the front of the hotel and the Yacht Club are all beautiful locations. However, with a little bit of exploring you can find hidden gems of architecture that are unique.
This location is at the back of the special event conference building. Most wedding couples never visit this part of the venue. However, if time allows there are several beautiful structures that make great backgrounds.


Recently I had a super crazy wedding weekend. My Friday evening started with a luxury event in Miami, Saturday I was in Broward County covering another commercial event and on Sunday I was at one of my favorite locations in Palm Beach County at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. I have been working at Boca Resort for years and know virtually every inch of the property.
Boca Resort offers a multitude of amenities including 11 award-winning restaurants, a luxurious spa experience, access to fun activities like boating, surfing, and golfing, not to mention Boca by Design, the resort’s wedding and design team.

BELOW: Another fantastic place for photos at Boca Raton Resort and Club is located along side of the Mizner Center. This part of the resort has humongous ballrooms inside. If you walk from the Mizner Center to the main hotel you would most likely walk down this hall. What is most unique about this location is the ceiling made of wood. The hotel pink color is really apparent in this part of the hotel.




BELOW: This very tall wedding cake was created by the pastry chef at Boca Resort and the floral decor was provided by Boca by Design, which is Boca Resort's in house florist and design company.


However, the real draw of this South Florida luxury hotel is the hotel itself. Sitting right along the Atlantic coast it’s nestled right in the heart of South Florida’s Mediterranean inspired historic village. The main hotel sits on a golf course and a separate hotel sits right on the beach. With its elegant features and unique look, you can truly have an international experience without the international travel at this luxury Waldorf Astoria Resort. The architecture is simply stunning. The rounded archways are the perfect place to steal a kiss with your new spouse. The beautiful columns are ideal for framing your bridal party as they stand by you on your big day and the gorgeous tile work provides a nice pop of color to any image.

Speaking of color, the Boca Raton Resort & Club is famous for its pink hues, providing the perfect contrast to any wedding photo. Towering over 20 stories high it’s the perfect place to get ready for the big day

BELOW: At the end of a wedding ceremony all the ring bearers and the flower girl walked back down the aisle together. This gave me the perfect opportunity to gather them all together for this, Hands Up! photo.


Not quite convinced yet? Let me paint you a picture.
It’s your big day, you step off the balcony and toast with your friends as anticipation for the ceremony builds. You say “I do” in the courtyard surrounded by your friends and family, the warm South Florida air, and the lush greenery. You eat dinner in the most elegant setting you can imagine. You experience your first dance with your loved one in a large ballroom with high ceilings and crystal chandeliers


BELOW: In addition to weddings Boca Raton Resort and Club also does a huge amount of corporate and special events. Imagine having your corporate event on a beautiful beach in sunny warm South Florida while most the rest of the country is in a deep freeze. This ice sculpture was created by the event design team at Boca Resort.


Then, as the night draws to a close, you sneak down to the beach kick off your shoes and spend some one-on-one time with your new spouse before the night comes to an end. If that doesn’t quite match your dreams of a Florida destination wedding, the Boca Raton Resort & Club has a ton of options that fit any bride whether you’re looking for something more adventurous, say on a yacht at the marina, or more traditional in their immaculate “Cathedral Room”. No matter what your style, this luxury resort is sure to wow your guests and make your Boca Resort Wedding one to remember.

BELOW: I received a call from Bill Summerlin, The Special Events Designer/ Social manager /Boca Raton Resort ,Waldorf Astoria, Boca By Design at Boca By Design. He told me that a guy was going to propose to his girlfriend just before they have dinner at the resort. I arrived early and acted like I was photographing boats or birds or something with a long telephoto lens. When the marriage proposal happened I was able to photograph the entire thing.
Afterwards I took the couple around for a short engagement photo-shoot.


As one of their preferred photographers, I know first-hand that saying your vows in front of this towering pink hotel is truly a unique experience and will provide you with gorgeous photos that will last a lifetime.
