When you hear about any kind of adventure, you always want to know… how did it all begin? What were the moments that lead up to this incredible story with such a perfect happily ever after? In the adventure that is marriage, Carl + Vanessa started out with the makings of something simply incredible. It was a celebration they, along with 300 of their closest family and friends, will never forget.
I need to confess now that I tried my best to condense their rehearsal dinner and wedding into one post as to not keep you waiting for a part 2, but I was concerned that having to scroll down as much as would be needed would certainly cause carpal tunnel so, here we are, with a gorgeous part 1…. a rehearsal dinner to remember.
Carl + Vanessa’s wedding was held at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach. The night before, their family and wedding party gathered for a run through of the ceremony and a kick off of a full weekend of wedded fun!
As the sun set, the glow of the lights set a warm, magical tone…
The minute the band began to play, you couldn’t keep this crowd from celebrating like it was 1999! I love these images of Vanessa and her dad on the dance floor together. You can tell this wasn’t their first time twirling together…
