Spark It Up!

Ali & Andy's destination wedding in South Florida was nothing short of spark-tacular!! Any wedding that has fireworks is a hit with me...but to make it even better, the fireworks were a surprise to the couple! But it didn't stop there, the couple's big day was full of equally big surprises. Jeff Kolodny did an amazing job capturing all the priceless moments of this lavish event.
This beautiful wedding took place at the landmark properties of Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort. The gorgeous grounds offer plenty of options for planning a wedding. Ali & Andy chose to have their ceremony overlooking the water and it was certainly the right location! Choosing to have an evening wedding outdoors isn't common place, but in this venue it was nothing short of breathtaking. The chuppah was decked out in lights and flowers that made it look like it was straight out of a fairytale.

As the couple had their first kiss as husband and wife,fireworks went off in the background. The perfect start to their lives together! And of course the ultimate kick-off to a fabulous night of celebrating. Can you imagine how surprised the newlyweds were as they saw the night sky be light up by surprise fireworks?! That's definitely a once in a lifetime moment!

After the vows were exchanged and the fireworks went off, it was time to start off the reception! Ali's father, Neil Goldberg, is the founder of Cirque Productions based in Pompano Beach, so you know the rest of the night was going to be an event in itself. He was able to create a world of lavish fantasy for his daughters wedding, teaming up with Designs by Sean to make his vision a reality.Annette Winkler of the Fairmont Turnberry Isle did a stellar job of coordinating all the details for the events of the evening. Everything from the cocktail hour to the ceremony to the reception went off without a hitch!! Enough of the talking, let's get to the pictures. Get ready to ooh & ahh...I sure did!
Remember how I said in the beginning the night was full of surprises? Neil certainly outdid himself with the fireworks, only to shock his daughter & son-in-law again with a surprise after-party following their reception!! When the clock struck twelve the doors to another ballroom swung open to reveal a more South Beach feeling after-party. This is definitely a set up after my own heart. Guests were greeted with a ton of more fabulous comfort foods including hot dogs, french fries & churros! Yum!
This wedding was one for the books without a single doubt. Everything sparkled, glittered and shined without it being super girlie! Many thanks to Jeff Kolodny again for doing such an epic job of capturing all the moments! I'm utterly impressed by his skill.
