Palm Event Center | Sara and Julian

White roses and greenery set the tone for Sara and Julian’s classy affair at Palm Event Center. Their elegant color palette and sophisticated aesthetic deliver an elevated beauty to their celebration. We could rave about their wedding all day, but we’d rather showcase the experience with the photos below, starting with the lovely couple and their pup!

The first look is always magical, but this one was particularly special—Julian’s big smile says it all.

We have one word to describe the couple and their wedding party: stunning. The palm trees create a gorgeous backdrop for the group shot and highlight Palm Event Center. The groomsmen look dapper in classic tuxedos while the bridesmaids make a statement in emerald green dresses.

Sheer swag drapes down from the chandelier, framing the floral arbor and creating an ethereal look in the reception hall. What a breathtaking setting to tie the knot!

The ceremony commences as the bride walks down the aisle. The vows and romantic dip are the cherries on top. 



As guests enter the reception space, they see a welcome sign with a golden accent. The warm color is a beautiful contrast to the white and green palette. Our favorite element is the sweetheart table with floral arches, pillar candles, and signature blooms.

It’s time to bust a move on the dance floor! The newlyweds kick off the first dance tradition, followed by the mother-son and father-daughter dances.   


Did someone say cake? We can’t help but notice how the single-tier cake matches the couple’s classic theme with baby’s breath and a couple of raspberries. Please save us a slice!

Let’s raise a toast to Sara and Julian. May you enjoy a lifetime of adventure together!

We want to acknowledge our creative partners for infusing class and beauty into their special day.
