When you keep it simple and focused - in life, love and weddings - beautiful things can happen. From the choice of the church to the end-of-night lantern release, Raquel and Jason agreed on all the qualities they wanted for their day: traditional, elegant, simple, classy, and filled with the love of family and friends. Our Fave Jessica Bordner Photography captured all the moments of this classically romantic day at Eastpointe Country Club.

Raquel and Jason met in 2011 at The Dirty Martini in Palm Beach Gardens. They were obviously an instant hit; says Raquel, "We knew early on there would be no one else for us, and the rest was history." Jason was preparing for the Florida Bar exam (he's now an Assistant State Attorney), and Raquel was beginning her Master's program in preparation for her career as a pediatric Speech and Language Pathologist.

The ease of their relationship continued right into their engagement: "Surprisingly (or not surprisingly) we agreed on everything throughout our wedding planning process. It was the best time of our lives. We both wanted a traditional wedding, with a touch of glamour. We chose to have a black and white wedding, with accents of green shining through in the form of succulents."

Before walking down the aisle, they shared a "faux first look", taking that moment to read letters they wrote for each other.

They wed at Jason's childhood church, St. Patrick Catholic, with its stunning stained glass windows, wooden archways, and traditional organ. One of their favorite moments was the beginning of the ceremony, which was particularly meaningful to Raquel: she walked by herself down the aisle, to honor her father who has passed. "It absolutely took my breath away when Jason unveiled me at the end of the aisle in front of our parents, family and closest friends."

“Everything is so easy when we are together; I think that's the secret to our lasting love and why we have so much fun together.”

A classic reception followed at Eastpointe Country Club, which Raquel called "an amazing experience. Beautiful views, amazing chef, and wonderful people catering to us throughout the process."

Another treasured moment came at the conclusion of their day: "At the end of the night we lit and set off over twenty wish lanterns in the hopes of a future full of health and prosperity."
