Three Palm Beach Weddings to Remember

 

Byrna Butler & Marc Noyer-Maingard
Palm Beach, Florida // March 3, 2018 // Photographed by Julie Skarratt Weddings Byrna and Marc’s celebration began on Friday with a welcome party hosted at the bride’s family’s home in Palm Beach. A  boho-themed tent, outfitted with bougainvillea and hanging candles (all flowers and décor were by Tom Mathieu), overlooked the ocean as the Gypsy Kings performed! Saturday started with Byrna and Marc’s wedding ceremony at St. Edward Church, followed by three celebrations: one along the Intracoastal, surrounding a harbor filled with miniature sailboats spelling the bride and groom’s names in lights; a fountain show; and a jungle-themed soirée encircling an interactive dance floor designed to resemble a koi pond. The bride wore custom Valentino haute couture for the ceremony, and donned two different Ralph & Russo couture dresses throughout the  reception. Guests happily danced to the beat of DJ Giannis, who was flown in from Greece for the couple’s special day.  

Whitney Oudin Flesher & David Henry Tutor
Palm Beach, Florida // April 14, 2018 // Photographed by CAPEHART Whitney and David were wed by Reverend James Harlan at Bethesda-by-the-Sea on Saturday, April 14, at noon. The bride and her father arrived at the church in a vintage Bentley (driven by a family friend). After the ceremony, guests walked down the street to a luncheon held at Villa El Sarmiento, the home of Julia and David Koch, the bride’s aunt and uncle. Speeches were given by the bride’s father, Gregory Flesher, and the groom’s uncle, David Silk. Guest Christopher DiLella surprised the couple with a rendition of “Edelweiss.” That same evening, everyone congregated for a party at the Palm Beach Country Club, which was transformed into a modern dance club equipped with white lacquer bars, lucite chairs, and ocean blue tablecloths. Guests danced the night away to the tune of The Marcia Mitchell Band.

Xiomi Murray & J. Roby Penn IV
March 17, 2018 // Palm Beach, Florida // Photographed by CAPEHART Xiomi and Roby were married at the Royal Poinciana Chapel in Palm Beach, following their rehearsal dinner at the Colony Hotel the
previous evening. The bride wore a strapless gazar gown by Peter Langner, and carried an all-white bouquet of roses and hydrangeas. Bridesmaids donned navy blue Lela Rose dresses and carried similar bouquets, while groomsmen sported boutonnieres of yellow roses, symbolic of Texas. The reception was held at a private club, where a bagpiper led the bride and groom into cocktail hour. The club’s pastry chef patterned the wedding cake to match the bride’s dress, while the groom’s chocolate cake was the Penn crest. Xiomi and Roby danced their first dance to Cole Porter’s “At Long Last Love,” and were later led out to the croquet lawn by a trumpeter playing “When the Saints Go Marching In.” A send-off brunch the next day was held at the Chesterfield Hotel, after which the couple enjoyed a mini-moon to the Exumas. They look forward to an extended honeymoon in Africa this fall.
