As seen in Destination I Do {French Provincial Meets South Florida}

Directly from our designer:

Maybe you’ve always dreamt of a large wedding with everyone you love, so you can’t imagine how that vision can transfer from a large 200 person celebration to an intimate 20 person soiree. If you’ve decided to scale back your wedding plans, why not opt for a non-conventional location that feels private and like it is only for you. Today we are showcasing just that – a unique location within an exclusive property that still provides all the amenities.

From Tasha Bracken Events: With clients fully embracing intimate weddings, we want them to feel confident in their decision and not as though they are sacrificing their original vision and design.” It was important to convey that this is actually an opportunity to incorporate more personal elements and experiences that you aren’t normally able to with a larger-scale celebration.

We built our inspiration on the natural beauty of The Eau Palm and highlighted the French Provencal influences throughout the property. With the spa garden as our backdrop, the waterfall feature and tablescape set in a splash of tranquil splash of water created ethereal celebration.

Our inspiration for this shoot was the breathtaking backdrop of Palm Beach, pulling inspiration from the surrounding vibrant, romantic colors set against the majestic ocean wave and French architecture.
The day started with an intimate ceremony in a garden off-set by the ocean with lush floral displays from Xquisite Events. We designed private seating sections with furniture from Elements and Accents which welcomed guests greeted with a glass of Perrier Jouet champagne.

Photographer, Jessica Bordner and cinematographer, Key Moment Films, captured this exceptionally gorgeous day and all of the soft, romantic details inspired by the French influences of the property. The bride wore a stunning Monique Lhuillier gown from Chic Parisian which featured a gorgeous bodice with intricate applique detail that complemented the light breeze and movement of the ocean. Her bridal look was a blend of romantic and traditional beauty, with Jeanette from FaceTime Beauty bringing her soft romantic makeup and  modern updo to reality. The groom’s attire was a nod to an old-world European feel with a white tux jacket  and bow tie paired black suit pants and  bow tie from Tux Shop of Palm Beach.

The Pièce de resistance was the gorgeous, intimate guest seating surrounded by a light waterfall and literally placed in a tranquil splash of water.
