Jasmine and her bridesmaids began the day getting ready at the Boca Raton Resort & Club, everyone was excited and ready to go! Jasmine looked completely stunning. From her long and flowing ruched wedding dress by Allure and her Jimmy Choo shoes, with their hidden message “I Do” written in crystals, to her flawless makeup, this bride was beautiful, calm and relaxed, but definitely looking forward to her day. A beautiful bride, and a beautiful day, which allowed our team to take many beautiful Boca Raton wedding pictures.
The bridesmaids performed double duty, they had devised a plan for the groom to go on a scavenger hunt. Using clues about the bride, each progressive clue bringing him closer to finding her for their first meeting. They even blind folded him to make sure that he did not accidentally see the bride too soon. When he finally “found” her, his smile beamed, this was obviously a couple in love, and so very much ready to be married.
It is a beautiful sun-filled South Florida winter day at the brides’ gorgeous waterfront residence. This is the perfect day, and the perfect place, for our team to take some incredible Fort Lauderdale wedding pictures.
The brides’ request of wedding planner Joni Scalzo, from Your Special Day by Joni, was for simple elegance, a wish achieved. The waterfront home was turned into a dreamscape; the entry foyer became a bridal hall, complete with tulle and flower draped grand stairway, the massive columns had coverings of greenery with rose & hydrangea accents, and the living area converted to provide ample space for guest seating. A tent was used to cover the homes waterfront lanai, the swimming pool became a dance floor, while the spill-over Jacuzzi held a towering floral centerpiece of white calla lilies, delphiniums, hydrangeas and roses. The space surrounding the dance floor held beautifully decorated tables with centerpieces of white roses and hydrangea. All of these incredible floral displays were creations of Lane Friedman and his team from Dalsimer Atlas.
Jasmin is a beautiful, soon-to-be bride; and today, her happiness and anticipation are visible for all to see. It is a breezy and beautiful day for a Fort Lauderdale Beach wedding.
She and her wedding party are gathered in their suite, while stylist Jennette Sandifer from Beauty Couture makes sure that the bride and her attendants are all perfect. Every hair in its place, their makeup is flawless. All overseen by Wedding Planner Joni Scalzo from Your Special Day by Joni, who stayed on top of absolutely everything, from the group of giggling girls in the Brides room, to coordinating with Arthur Sands, the Director of Catering at the sumptuous B Ocean Fort Lauderdale; both working to ensure that the day is beyond compare.
The Brides Indian theme was beautiful, the vivid colors, the sparkling jewelry from Kyles Collection of London, the traditional hand designs, combined seamlessly with her strapless Stephen Yearick gown, with its crystal and bead accented bodice, and the crystal covered Sergio Rossi shoes. All uniting to beautifully blend the cultures of the bride and groom.
The B Ocean offered our team some incredible views and backdrops to capture this couples Fort Lauderdale Beach wedding pictures. The newly renovated lobby with its modern décor and color-changing wall, the fantastic terrace overlooking the beach, and the location itself is just steps from Fort Lauderdale Beach. All of which make this a picture perfect location for our team to capture the big day for Jasmin and Seth.
It was a beautiful warm day in Boca Raton at the exclusive Boca West Country Club, where the breathtaking surroundings of this tropical paradise makes it a breeze for wedding photographers to capture thousands of special moments like this.
For Aaron and Candice, two native NewYorkers, their special day was not only filled with sunshine and palm trees; but happiness and love were felt all around which made their day even more magical. The sounds of laughter from the adorable flower girls were music to our ears. They were so cute that we could just not get enough photographs of them!
When we first met Candice and Aaron for their engagement session, we knew they were going to make the perfect couple for wedding photographs. She was absolutely ravishing in her beautiful wedding gown and Manolo Blahnik heels. (more…)
From the minute we first met Frank and Shannon, we knew: these two are FUN. From their engagement shoot to their wedding day, photographing this couple was an absolute blast.
Photos commenced at St. Jude church where a traditional Catholic ceremony took place. At the end of the ceremony all the wedding guests formed an aisle outside the church doors, creating a path for the newly weds to parade down, as bubbles floated throughout the air. At the end of the aisle, Frank and Shannon released white doves into the air, symbolic of love and peace, and a frequent tradition at Christian weddings.
Shannon was the ideal image of a fairytale princess bride: simple elegance, and classic beauty. Curled tendrils framed her face, and her diamond studded head piece was the perfect accent to complete her look. Her dress was by Winnie Couture, a gorgeous regal spaghetti-strapped gown adorned with intricate embroidery at the waist, and her shoes by Jimmy Choo. Frank was quite the handsome groom in his white tuxedo.
After speaking with wedding and event planner Joni Scalzo, of Your Special Day by Joni, we learned that she, too, enjoyed working with this lovely couple. “Shannon was a vision, and Frank looked so handsome…When they first contacted me, they presented me with a challenge… They wanted a venue that had access to a yacht to do a cocktail cruise after the ceremony, but one that also had a ballroom to come back to for the party and reception. The Hyatt Pier 66 seemed to have it all, including the Panorama ballroom, so that’s the venue we went with,” said Joni. “From there we began to book vendors. I referred them to my favorite photographers, Domino Arts, knowing that they would be the best team to capture the details of this magnificent day; and that they did. Knowing that this couple had a very unique taste and wanted to be very involved with their décor, we decided to go with Lane, of Dalsimer Florists. He executed their vision to reality.”
Joni went on to tell us that Eric Clark of the Hyatt Pier 66 was “extremely instrumental in executing the details of the day, which included magicians, flamenco dancers, ice carvings, cigar rollers, videos and lighting.” We couldn’t agree more!

They chose to come back to Elana’s home town of Boca Raton to tie the knot. Elana’s mom, Sharona was actively involved in planning this once in a lifetime celebration with wedding planner, Joni Scalzo of Your Special Day by Joni. Together they pieced together what turned out to be a most magnificent event that many will talk about for months to come! Elana & Mati’s special day began at the beautiful Boca Raton Resort where they experienced their romantic “first look”. After this special moment, they went to B’nai Torah in Boca Raton, where they exchanged their wedding vows under a gorgeously decorated Chuppah.
