A perfect 75 degrees, gently swaying palm trees, and lush gardens surrounded Catherine and Robert as the Atlantic Ocean spread out beyond them. The renowned Breakers hotel would provide a fantastical setting for a gathering of dear friends and family as the lovely couple said their vows in mid-November.

Built by railroad tycoon Henry Flagler, the Breakers opened in 1896 on the grounds of the incredible (and since lost) Royal Poinciana Hotel which was situated on Lake Worth Lagoon. Originally called The Palm Beach Inn, guests were requesting rooms “over by the breakers” and that moniker eventually took hold. After a devastating fire in 1925, the majestic current hotel would be modeled on the Villa Medici in Rome.

The duogram we created for them was used throughout the events and shines here beautifully on the dancefloor.

We started with our largest Empire invitation, the text was engraved with gold metallic ink, one-by-one on antique presses, a duogram was also blind engraved (without ink) near the top, with corners beveled and rounded by hand, and edges painted with gold. Matching engraved response card set and an itinerary card would complete the suite. Envelopes were lined with a slightly shimmering sand tissue paper and each was hand calligraphed inspired flourishes in gold ink.
