Carl + Vanessa: Married

After the evening of the rehearsal dinner (see those beautiful images here) ,we knew Carl + Vanessa’s wedding day would be one to remember but by the end of the day we realized it was an event no one who attended could possibly ever forget. With the first clicks of the camera you could feel the excitement and love for this couple coming straight through the lens.

The wedding and reception were held at the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach… the perfect setting for a gorgeous, classic celebration!

A gorgeous bride and her mom…. both classic beauties!

Vanessa custom designed her own dress! All the exquisite lace detail was just breathtaking.

I just love her dad’s expression when he saw her for the first time. This is what memories are made of!

It was soon time for the first look!

Carl was just as thrilled to see his bride for the first time!

The pop of fuchsia from the bridesmaids dresses against the warm sun…. LOVE!

The groomsmen were in a classic tux with a twist with their mix of fun bow-ties!

It was time to go get married, but first… a drop by hello by President Trump who was at the club meeting with the Prime minister of Japan. He had been an invited guest so the family was thrilled that he was able to take time from his schedule to be a part of their day!

The ceremony details were on point… bright, fun, and distinguished.

The sun began to set just as the wedding party began lining up for the processional.

Love this series of dad walking his two best women down the aisle….

The sun setting made for a romantic atmosphere….

The reception decor was something out of a movie. The pinks, golds, blushes and blues made for a magical scene…As soon as the bride and groom entered, the party was in full swing!

Congratulations to Carl + Vanessa! Thank you for making us a part of such an incredible day in your lives.
