Groom sees bride at the aisle, The Breakers, Palm BeachThough he swore up and down he wouldn't cry, when his beautiful bride first appeared at the end of the aisle this groom's composure was rocked for a moment. This sweet face that's about to break was captured by Steve, who always turns from his position capturing the bride walk down the aisle and gets a shot of the groom the moment he sees his bride. The rooftop terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at The Breakers hotel on Palm Beach Island is a beautiful and quintessentially Palm Beach location for any wedding ceremony; guests catch a cool breeze no matter how hot the day, and the majesty of the main hotel is just off to the side, casting a bit of shade on the lawn far below. The surf of the Atlantic ocean, just steps away, crashes with rhythmic regularity and provides a soothing soundtrack of white noise for guests to listen to before the ceremony begins. Though flowers aren’t even necessary to decorate the beauty of this space, The Breakers’ floral team outdoes themselves at every wedding, including this one with simple palette of white and green hydrangea to coordinate with the cornflower and navy worn by the groomsmen and bridesmaids. A groom wearing a white tux has to be supremely confident in his ability to pull off the look, but when it’s a man as sophisticated as this one, no one even blinked.
