Kim and Adam’s beach town wedding was a mix of natural shades and crystals so as not to compete with the stunning views and decor of The Delray Beach Club.
The bride’s bouquet was a stunning mix of garden roses, roses, lisianthus with ivory, and pale pink ranunculus accents. The couple took the local tram to the Delray Beach Club, stopping along the way to take a few photos.
After setting up the Chuppah for the traditional Jewish Ceremony, the skies opened and it poured with rain. The white satin got soaking wet. The solution? A new Chuppah inside out of the club’s tablecloths!! The guests were seated on a mix of the lounge area’s sofas and chairs as they witnessed the ceremony.
The bride’s parents are avid travelers and had gifted the couple a handmade sculpture of a bride and groom to top the cake they came across in a gallery in Venice Italy. It looked perfect on the cake and was a real conversation piece!
The table numbers were tags over wine bottles on which each guest was asked to write a special note to the happy couple, so that as they opened the bottles in the years to come, the memories and best wishes of this special day came flooding back to them!
Beautiful details helped accomplish a stylized wedding that blended the venue’s beauty and the couple’s love!
Mazel tov, Kim and Adam!

Lior and Wendy met on the job and were flirty friends for about a year until they finally shared their first kiss at a Rosh Hashanah party. Nothing says romance like apples and honey, right? After about a year of dating, Lior and Wendy shared a deep conversation one night over a romantic dinner, during which they shared their desire to marry each other and start a family. However, Lior was Jewish and Wendy was not, and the idea of raising children with one religion was important to both of them. So after much research and falafel, Wendy made the decision to change her religion from Catholicism to Judaism. The process was long and arduous, but Wendy took to her new religion like a gefilte fish to water. Shortly after the conversion process was finalized, Lior popped the question to Wendy, in front of her family, on Christmas morning, nonetheless!
Though she converted Orthodox, Wendy and Lior have embraced a Reform Judaism lifestlye, and their wedding was everything they wanted it to be. On May 25, 2008, a Rabbi and a Cantor performed a beautiful ceremony under a chuppah that emphasized Wendy and Lior’s relationship in the most sentimental way. Every moment of the ceremony was meaningful and romantic, while keeping many of the traditional Jewish elements. There were also a lot of modern elements that definitely spiced things up — like a male bridesmaid and contemporary music for the ceremony. Today Wendy and Lior are raising their little 1-year-old boychik, Ben.
We love Wendy’s gorgeous Monique dresses (yes, we wish we were on a first name basis with Madame L.) and the stunning venue, which, unfortunately, is no longer available for events. We had to tell you so you wouldn’t get your hopes up because that place was niiiiiiiice.
Mazel tov, Wendy and Lior!
