Living in Miami, Mark and Joelle knew they wanted to get married somewhere in South Florida. Choosing The Breakers for their special day – could have been the easiest decisions the two had to make!
“The Breakers was by far our favorite venue,” says the bride. “We immediately fell in love with the regal feel and gorgeous ballrooms and instantly knew The Breakers was the perfect place for our wedding!

“As far as favorite memories or moments, we have a few. One moment a little non-traditional – from the morning of our wedding,” says Joelle. “Mark and I woke up early and shared coffee and muffin in the courtyard outside of The Breakers News and Gourmet. Although traditionally the bride and groom don’t see each other before the wedding, we really enjoyed sharing a calm and quiet moment together before all of the preparations and celebrations for our big day began.”
“My favorite moment was walking down the aisle. I took a few steps into The Circle ballroom and paused for a moment before I began walking down the aisle,” says Joelle. “Although we were in a large ballroom, all of the candles, decor, and the ethereal look of the chuppah created such a romantic and intimate setting that it felt like Mark and I were the only two people in the room.”
“Making our entrance as Mr. and Mrs. Simms into the ballroom was so exciting,” Joelle says. “We chose to attend our cocktail hour, so we hadn’t seen the ballroom and all of the gorgeous decor until we made our entrance. The room was absolutely stunning and it was so amazing seeing all of our friends and family so happy and excited to celebrate our marriage.”
