For me, nothing quite gets me so giddy as the beautiful elegance of an upscale wedding. (Hello? Elegance? It's kinda my thing!)
For sheer opulence, luxury, and take-your-breath-away value...ladies and gentlemen, I give you my next "Wedding Wish-List" item, The Breakers Resort at Palm Beach, Florida!
This is what their wedding website has to say about what they can offer their brides:
"Whether indoors or outdoors‚ The Breakers has myriad of breathtaking
locations to suit your personal taste. From stunning oceanfront settings
and lush gardens to magnificent ballrooms‚ we can accommodate
ceremonies and receptions for 25 to 800 guests. Our one–of–a–kind venues
set the perfect stage for your once–in–a–lifetime celebration."
Please note the plural "BALLROOMS." That's right. There's more than one.
And they're incredible.
Try the Venetian Ballroom for example. "With stunning floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean,
the Venetian Ballroom is one of The Breakers’ largest ballrooms. The
25-foot-high space glows with six chandeliers, custom fabrics and golden
tones." This gets a big ol' WOW! from me! Gorgeous in the extreme, and I am itching to photograph a bride there.
Next, we have the Mediterranean Ballroom -- and a part of me just wants to cry. "Modeled after the loggias of Italian villas, the Romanesque
Mediterranean Ballroom was originally the hotel’s Grand Loggia. The
elaborate fresco-painted renaissance ceilings portray paintings of the
sky, with large Venetian-style chandeliers and tall, arched windows." So basically, it's like a little piece of Italy right in the midst of Florida. Um...yes, please?
And, let us not forget, the lovely Ponce de Leon Ballroom -- with its nine chandeliers and view of a tropical garden.
On top of all of this magnificence, you have the Gold Room (amazing); The Circle (wow); The Magnolia Room (so romantic); The Courtyard (nice)...or, why not try a full-on beach wedding at their Ocean Gazebo instead?
Soooo many opportunities here! My mind just goes totally crazy. I love it!
