The Colony Hotel Palm Beach Wedding of Laura & James
What do you do when you elope but want to have your close friends and family celebrate your marriage with you? You plan a dinner party!
Laura and James exchanged vows at the West Palm beach courthouse last year. James’ mom and brother held each other in a corner of the room while watching Laura trying to contain her tears during their vows. As the tears left her eyes, James would chime in with a joke that catapulted the whole room into laughter and Laura tears found a new home in her laugh lines.
Combining a love for simple elegance and the pastel colors of Palm Beach, James and Laura planned an intimate, candle lit dinner reception at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach.
If you’ve never been to The Colony, you’re missing out on the jewel of the island. Snuggled on a corner just a few steps away from the iconic Worth Avenue, the hotel is a breath taking view of British architecture washed in pastel pink. However, don’t go in expecting tea and scones! The décor is an ode to the Palm Beach with its banana leaf accented carpets, flanked by soft hues of baby blue and pink. The outdoor pool beckons you to sink yourself into any of the deep blue lounges chairs shielding you from the setting sun.
Right there around the pool and the neighboring manicured lawn was where the wedding guests sashayed around each other while greeting the friend they hadn’t seen in ages. White gloved waiters joined the dance while balancing trays of champagne flutes and and hors d’oeuvres. Somewhere on the lawn children giggled over a game of jenga and corn hole.
Just beyond the guests a white canopy gave guests a sneak peak of the dinner reception – a candle lit garden of monstera and palm frond centerpieces, with monstera leaves taking the role of chargers for each guest.
The band serenaded guests during dinner with rhythmic latin beats with a special appearance from one of the most influential musical artists of the 20th century. Notorious for his relaxed vibe, cigar in hand and a hat crowning his head while crooning “fly me to the moon” Mr. Frank Sinatra (the impersonator), shared stories of his past.
The beautiful touch for the night was when guests made their way to the Sweet Cravings ice cream truck.
