Wen & Jason’s South Florida Wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale

Posted on May 7, 2013

This lovely couple hired Albert as their South Florida wedding photographer over a year ago to photograph their destination wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale. Wen and Jason met while attending the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia. They started dating within the first month of their first semester, and got engaged over spring break during their second year of business school in March, 2012. It must have been love at first sight!

Jason’s family is from Fort Lauderdale, thus their choice of this fabulous oceanside city for their wedding. The wedding was really a destination wedding, however, as neither the bride or groom live in South Florida anymore. Although Jason is originally from the area, Wen grew up far away in Laramie, Wyoming. Now they live in Minneapolis, Minnesota! That’s a far cry both in distance and weather from sunny South Florida. Wen described that it was snowing in Minneapolis on the weekend of their wedding and in Fort Lauderdale it rained the day before and the day after but NOT on the day of the wedding!

This might be one of the oddest reasons I’ve ever heard of as far as why couples select certain venues, but Wen explained that one of the first business cases they studied at Darden was about the Ritz-Carlton. After learning about the company’s philosophy, they decided to stay at a few locations to check it out. They loved their experience and the quality of the guest service, so when it came time to pick a venue for their wedding, The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale was a natural choice. How can you go wrong with this pristine venue? Undoubtedly one of the most luxurious hotels in Fort Lauderdale and all of South Florida, the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale is situated right across from a magnificent beach and hotel itself is totally modern and beautiful. There are many great spots for photos as you will see here. Albert had a great time photographing Wen and Jason for as much time as was allowed.

Here are some details about this festive South Florida destination wedding: Wen’s dress was by Moonlight and her shoes by Guess. They used the incomparable Xquisite Events for all their décor, Vision DJs provided the music and Cleo Jorge did Wen’s hair and make-up.

There was a very diverse group of guests at the wedding. Wen’s parents flew in from Hong Kong, though they are originally from Taiwan. Other friends and family flew in from New York, Boston, San Francisco, Washington DC, Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis and other places.

Many thanks to Wen and Jason for having us be a part of their special South Florida destination wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale!!
