Lost Tree wedding photographer captures first lookThe moment before a first look has a sense of apprehension unlike anything we've ever experienced. This stormy first look on the private beach at Lost Tree Club in Palm Beach Gardens was no different; the groom's palpable nervousness and the bride's obvious deep breath leaves you with a feeling of tentative excitement. They chose to have their first look right on the beach where there were no onlookers; as it was a stormy day with spitting rain there was no need to worry, for everyone nearby was seeking shelter. The wind blowing her dress away from her legs shows her strength as she makes her way to the stairs. Both the bride and groom are marathon runners, used to pushing their bodies beyond what's considered normal, but nothing could prepare them for the adrenaline rush of seeing their partner for the first time all day. We loved this wedding for the determination and dedication both the bride and groom had for marrying each other and bringing their families together despite their age difference, and the stormy wedding day in the South Florida winter was barely noticed by anyone, with their excitement and happiness stealing the show throughout the festivities. Weddings at Lost Tree have an elevated sense of the finer things in life while still feeling like a classic Floridian venue, making them one of our favorite venues in Palm Beach County.
