Keeping a proposal hush-hush can be tough: Matt staged a faux 60th birthday party for his mom at a private home in Longboat Key, FL, and when all his friends and family were in attendance, he ended up getting on one knee proposing to the love of his life. Matt left no detail unturned: The bride to be was led down a torchlit path to a table for two set with champagne and roses as a live opera singer belted out a romantic tune. And when she said yes: Fireworks! No really, there were fireworks. Lots of them.
We are sure that former Miss University of Florida and pageant queen Diana will be a stunning bride!
The It! Girls are elated that two very cool lovebirds from New York flew down to sunny Palm Beach to have a fabulous wedding. The beautiful ceremony took place at Bethesda by the Sea Episcopal Church followed by a 1920′s inspired reception at the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum. The dance floor was the main event of the party as the band had everyone jumping up and down and shaking side to side. A heritage table was set up with vintage black and white pictures of the bride and grooms’ family and everything from napkins to drink stirrers was personalized with a gorgeous crest the couple designed themselves. Sipping on champagne and Manhattan’s, guests were treated to one of the coolest funfetti cakes we have ever seen. Trust us, we have seen A LOT of cakes! Of course what truly made the evening special was the pure joy radiating from the supper happy couple. Congrats Ryann and Will! Have the time of your lives honeymooning!

Nothing gets a girl’s heart’s fluttering quite like creativity and romance. This flash mob proposal happened in our own backyard this month at City Place in West Palm Beach. The groom loves to dance and planned this performance all by himself including the choreography! Get your tissues ready!
Everybody dreams of their life being like a movie, but this insanely creative boyfriend made the dream come true! Watch as he uses a movie trailer to propose to his girlfriend. Absolutely amazing!
Ok, It! Girls and Boys, get ready to break out the Kleenex for this one! We can’t get enough of this amazing production. If you’re looking for ideas on how to include friends and family when popping the question, this groom got it right! We give him a standing O! BRAVO!
We’re not sure whether this vid by Fandango Studios is better suited to a Real Wedding or an Obsession because holy moly we cannot get enough! It’s vintage Las Vegas meets Miami modern with a cinematic twist that’s comically sexy. From the poolside dance intro to the groom’s hungover run-in with the alarm clock, we think Fandango totally captured the spirit of this fun couple!
And can we talk about the Villa by Barton G. for a moment? We just happened to take a tour with the lovely Joe Gibialante, general manager, earlier this month to see what all the fuss is about. And IF THOSE WALLS COULD TALK! Each of the guest rooms was tailored to a family member or friend of the late Gianni Versace, who lost his life on the mansion’s front steps and put the property on the paparazzi-laced map in perpetuity. From the double king beds to the mind-boggling mosaics, this place is mesmerizing — a shrine to opulence in the middle of one of the sexiest spots in America.
So check out the video, we’ll be gassing up the convertible and heading south with our tops off — we mean down! Heading south with the top down!

Two New Yorkers who wanted the perfect Palm Beach wedding, Jen and Ken began their marriage in the beautiful St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Palm Beach Gardens, then headed south to celebrate oceanside at Four Seasons of Palm Beach.
When Meredith and Kyle said I do in the Florida Keys in summer 2011, there was a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on!
“These good looking doctors were super laid back and fun, I knew that their wedding was something to look forward to,” says photographer Emily Harris of Emily Harris Photography. “We had a blast documenting their special day with their extremely energetic group of friends and family. There was not one point in the evening when the dance floor wasn’t packed. While the shots kept being poured, and smiles were getting bigger, it was Meredith and Kyle’s warm affection towards each other that lit up the room. A special shout out to Meredith’s amazing grandma, who at 81 bust a move like no other on the dance floor. Love it!”
The intimate seaside ceremony included starfish kissing balls and hand-made details such as the flower girl’s recessional sign, letting guests know “And they lived happily ever after.” Certainly, romance under the palms ensued…
