Wedding at the Breakers Palm Beach
It’s here! Our first year anniversary! I can’t believe it. This day has arrived once again and I love my husband even more today than I did that day if that is even possible. As I was getting this post ready, I realized that I never did an official wedding post with all of our photos and short wedding video and I am so excited to finally share all the magic with you all! I will also include a breakdown of all the vendors we used as well as insights to how we picked certain elements for the perfect day. Now, lets start at the beginning…

Ballerinas: Miami City Ballet | Being a former professionally trained ballerina, most recently with Miami City Ballet School (and the reason I came to Miami in the first place), it was so special to me to have ballerinas come down the aisle right before I did. It was a real crowd pleaser and total surprise to our guest. Definitely one of my favorite moments. Thanks to my friend Bradley Dunlap for coordinating and choreographing this entrance.
Flower Girls: Lily and Kytlyn
There were twinkle lights in our wedding tent that started off with a dim light at the beginning of the ceremony and slowly got brighter and brighter until the moment of “I do”.
My mom and dad… so much laughter and tears
I have to say Always Flowers & Events blew our minds away. My mother-in-law and I planned this wedding with such care and attention to detail. We worked with them for over a year and had such a fun time planning this day. They not only helped us with the florals but also with all the rentals, lounge furniture, and my favorite place card table that was created by them. They are a one stop shop that can do it all!! The owner Karen, and coordinator Liz were absolutely fantastic. My mother-in-law and I couldn’t have done it without them. Special thanks to them because we owe them for making our day so special.
One of my favorite details the place card table. A gold structure with flower petals on top and hanging roses, crystals, and candles over mini vases of roses with each place card and table number. This was such a jaw dropping display.
I loved these candelabra centerpieces on the long tables. We had a mixture of long and circular tables around a circular dance floor. I wanted an enchanted garden look and I loved the mixture of florals and candle light.
Our large centerpieces with ivy draping down the base of the vase.
We knew people don’t like to be married to their seats (no pun intended ) for the entire night. We strategically placed lounge furniture around the dance floor so people could relax and dance the night away.
Our sweetheart table was such a magical element. This table was made by Always Flowers and Events and I loved the chandeliers displayed in the base of the table. The whole table was acrylic and there were flower petals and flower arrangements draped throughout.
On top of our sweetheart table, an ode to my favorite movie that much inspired so many details of this wedding, Beauty and the Beast…
Knowing that the bride has a lot to do with the details, we wanted to include something related to Andrew. He played baseball his whole life and into college and made each table number a number of a retired Yankees player. The guests loved this detail and I think they went home with some guest as souvenirs.
We wanted to details to be spectacular so we opted for all gold chairs for the guest to sit on. It was such a nice touch and really sharpened up the room.
We didn’t want ordinary paper menu’s (nothing wrong with that btw) but we wanted something a little bit more dramatic. We ordered these large 12″ gold mirrored menu’s to display on top of the chargers. Good for a makeup check too before a selfie lol.
This cake was so beautiful. We wanted gold piping as well as real, live florals to cascade down the 5 layered cake.
The Party…I mean Reception…
Back in the day, I liked to pop a bottle or two… We had a parade of champagne with sparklers enter right before we were announced to enter as Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Deiso for the first time.
Our first dance…
Father of the bride speech… with song… love you daddy!
Maid of Honor Speech (my younger sister Lauren)
Best Man Speech…

Special Thanks to the following Vendors:
Wedding coordinator: Jeff Fowler | The Breakers Event Sales Manager
***Jeff Fowler, we could not have done it without you. Thank you so much for being not only so gracious but so vibrant and supportive! You’re generosity, professionalism, and expertise cannot be matched. This man right here coordinated all day of events as well as helped out with all other details including food and entertainment. We love you Jeff!
Photography: Alain Martinez
Videography: Merge Social
Entertainment: Rock With U The coolest thing! We couldn’t decided between a DJ or a band so we had a “fusion” which is a DJ surrounded by live band members so we got both sounds and we weren’t restricted to the type of music we wanted to hear throughout the night. We could change it up all night long.
Wedding Cake: Breakers in house bakery
Florals and design: Always Flowers & Events
Thanks for stopping by on this special day!
