From the first moment I started to photograph Vanessa in her suite at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach I knew this classic bride was going to be breathtaking. A stunning beauty, who choose each element of her wedding attire to be romantic and classic. Her groom, Yamal , matched her classic vibe with is own black tie elegance. Knowing they choose a traditional wedding ceremony, at Bethesda By The Sea, I was beyond excited to photograph Yamal’s reaction as Vanessa walked down the aisle with her father.
This gorgeous church in Palm Beach has been restored to its original architecture and feels majestic when you walk into the congregation with the vaulted arches and stained glass works of art.
One of my favorite moments from their wedding day was the moment they walked out of the grand doorway and into the setting sun, as husband and wife!
After a few sunset portraits in front of Bethesda By The Sea we headed to the Breakers – for an elegant and reception in the Mediterranean Ballroom. Before their party began we had to stop for some evening photos in front of the iconic pathway that leads to this one of a kind Palm Beach wedding venue.
