In fact, she and her team of expert planners believe that when planning a wedding there really can’t be enough personalization in the details.

Each wedding is a story that’s yet to be told…

Heather says that best way to incorporate your individual style is to remember what brought you two together in the first place, or special moments you’ve shared or interests you have in common. As she’s planned sensational weddings for countless Palm Beach socialites and celebrities, perhaps experiencing some of the incredible details Heather has orchestrated will inspire you with your own planning…

At a beautiful outdoor rehearsal dinner, we created an arch entry way with photos of the bride and groom’s immediate families. It was a lovely way to capture the essence and intimacy of the evening.

At this ceremony location, we took the standard gazebo that overlooked the lake and covered it with thousands of roses! It truly created the most romantic arbor to get married under at a gorgeous time of day.

As guests walked into a cocktail hour in Palm Beach, they were greeted with bottles of Pink Pop Champagne, something other than a traditional flute.

In lieu of a traditional place card setting on a table, we used ribbons to hang the place cards for a whimsical feel.

My favorite part of these centerpieces, which lean to the traditional side, are the pop of coral garden roses.

 A gorgeous, lighthearted tablescape that’s very romantic with the candles and fluffy flowers.

My favorite moment, the kiss after they say “I Do!”

I love adding hanging chandeliers to any ballroom, it brings the room in and creates a romantic, elegant environment.

For this cocktail hour, which was outdoors, we used vintage floral linens with monochromatic hot pink peonies. I love this view from above the table!

We tied over 1,000 bows, including this one on the wedding favors. Inside were ornaments with a photo of the estate house where the wedding took place. We went all the way with every last detail; hence, the monogram stickers to finish the packaging.

 Rarely do I have the opportunity to do a reception outside. It was so exciting to finally get to use these stunning farm tables, complete with lace runners and vintage china. The hot pink peonies really popped as the setting was overlooking the lake.

A perfect ending to a perfect wedding, sending the bride and groom off with sparklers and rose petals!

Very on trend, these letterpress wedding invitations set the tone for the champagne and coral toned wedding design concept.

To add some spunk to a traditional ballroom, I love adding a few lounge areas. It gives a homey feel and a really nice gathering place for those guests who may be too shy to strut their stuff on the dance floor, or the ones who need to take a little break from dancing!  Adding pattern in the sofa fabric or the accent pillows really can create a fun ambiance to the whole space.

It’s so special to let the photographer capture the bride and groom in the ballroom after the ceremony, but before any guests are allowed in. Gives the couple a chance to experience the space all by themselves. Such a special moment.

Nothing beats the beauty of these lush cherry blossom centerpieces. This wedding was an eclectic mix of modern luxury.

The recessional often provides a the ideal time to catch that bridal glow on the bride and groom’s faces as they come back down the aisle. The excitement they exude is palpable. It’s priceless. I love it!

Sometimes it’s nice to create a ceremony entrance like this one. Not only does it allow guests to feel like they are walking into a special space, but it makes for a fabulous backdrop during the ceremony processional and recessional. Always smart to make a dramatic entrance AND exit!
