Who would’ve known that tropical and elegance can be put together? Whenever brides and grooms decide on a beach wedding, there’s some sort of casualness and laid-back vibe present during the event, it’s almost always uncanny. I guess it’s because we associate beaches with relaxation and vacation. But for Justine & Jeremy, they were able to recreate the beach vibe but also, add some elegance to it. All thanks to their amazing reception set-up that looked so amazing with all the metallic details. The refined aura of silver plus the casual vibe of the sand equals to something unique and gorgeous.
Congratulations Justine & Jeremy!
The story for Jeremy and I began five years ago, as we met through mutual friends. It was love at first sight for us and after only after three months together, we knew that we were meant to be husband and wife. Our relationship works because we respect one another and the characteristics that one person lacks, the other makes up for. We are the epitome of a team.
In the spring of 2013, Jeremy and I went for a walk on a trail that we often walked on near our house and one that we walked on during one of our first dates getting to know on another. We stopped on a bridge that overlooks a river and were talking and laughing when all of a sudden Jeremy got down on one knee and asked me to marry him… well you can tell now how that went!
When deciding on a wedding destination, the ocean was our first choice. The beach has always been a special place for us, as it is always our “go to” vacation place. We visited many places, the Breakers being one of the venues that we looked at in Florida. After seeing the Breakers in Palm Beach, nothing else could compare and we found ourselves comparing everything to the Breakers. It was definitely our idea of a beautiful destination wedding. We knew that this would be the perfect place to host our friends and family from Michigan, as the service, the beauty and the amenities of the Breakers is unparalleled from the moment you pull into the drive.
One of our favorite moments from the wedding was the First Look. The love and emotions that we have and hold for one another could definitely be felt and seen by all. At this moment, we definitely felt like the most special couple in the world a couple that were having their dream wedding surrounded by friends and family and excited to spend the rest of our lives together. Another favorite moment of ours, was when the Priest, Father Leo began to cry because he could sense and feel the love that we have for one another.
