They say timing is everything and there is no doubt this holds is true for Lauren Feltman and Brett Schneider’s love story.
After Lauren graduated from college she moved to South Florida where her parents had recently resided. Although she made the venture down south, she had no intentions of staying and only signed a 6-month lease in her Fort Lauderdale apartment; She was planning on moving to New York City where her college and high school friends lived. Lauren had about a month left on her lease when a mutual friend introduced her to Brett. For the pair, it was love at first sight.
Lauren was immediately attracted to Brett’s good looks, and his sweet, caring demeanor. And Brett couldn’t keep his eyes off Lauren. After a couple of dates Lauren and Brett became inseparable. Lauren decided to extend her lease and, well, the rest is history. The two were engaged 2 and a half years later and began planning the wedding of their dreams.
The couple chose The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach because they both love the beach: Brett loves to surf and Lauren likes to soak in the sun. The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach’s location was perfect – right on a pristine stretch of beach – not to mention its super classy interior and magnificent grounds. It was a destination wedding for most of their 300 guests, even the ones from Florida, so the couple wanted a venue that was accommodating and hassle-free.
In addition, Lauren and Brett hosted all of their wedding festivities at The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach to make it easier on their guests. The couple hosted a traditional Jewish wedding, but kept it current with modern trends such as LED lighting, crystals, a white dance floor and lounge seating. The couple even threw an after party that lasted until the wee hours of the morning. It was certainly a night to remember and a fairy tale wedding dream come true.
