For our team, inspiration comes from everywhere – especially the places we visit, shop or dine. Traveling is our passion and also one of the best ways we have found to ensure we bring a constant flow of new ideas, tastes and inspirations to our weddings and celebrations at The Breakers.

Team Tuesday: Travel Inspiration

Each year, members of the Weddings & Celebrations team travel to the South of France for an annual wine blending trip. Beginning in Chablis, the team worked their way back to Paris through the Rhone Valley, all while tasting the very best France had to offer!

A second annual trip, the team travels to New York City each spring to visit wedding planners, designers and the hottest new restaurants. Most recently, the Weddings & Celebrations team just returned from getaway in Miami.

The team celebrated an amazing wedding season, staying at the SLS Hotel in South Beach and dining at two of their favorites: Michael’s Genuine (above) Yardbird Southern Table & Bar (below).

Inspiration awaits: Our summer travels will also take us to….

Joan will be traveling to Italy later this summer with her family and is excited to visit and taste her way through Lake Como, Cinque Terre, Florence, Tuscany and Rome.

Kym plans to visit her family in Nashville and Kentucky, where she enjoys days by the lake, nights by the fire and everything true Southern home cooking has to offer.

Jeff is currently off in California with friends eating and shopping his way through Santa Monica, Hollywood and Los Angeles, ending his travels off the Central Coast in Big Sur.

Katie enjoyed a few smaller trips this summer like a visit to New York City for a family reunion and Orlando for the World Series for her daughter’s softball team. She also just returned from a family cruise to the Eastern Caribbean.

Sascha traveled to her hometown of Philadelphia before visiting New Orleans and Atlanta for the first time.  In addition to checking out many “must see” tourist spots, she enjoyed eating at some of the “local” favorites.

Sal and his annual summer vacation travel buddies are currently headed to Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. After the climb, the group will spend a week in Zanzibar enjoying the islands along the Indian Ocean.

Where are your travels taking you this summer?

It’s no secret that social media has changed the way today’s bride-to-be approaches every aspect of her wedding during the planning process and beyond.

Mashable recently partnered with TheKnot to conduct a social and technology wedding survey in which couples were asked about their digital habits during the wedding process. We just had to share…

When Elyssa and Tom set out to find a dream locale for their wedding celebration, the couple wanted a venue that offered the feeling of elegance with a very personal, down to Earth staff. Elyssa says they found everything they dreamed of and so much more at The Breakers…

Real Wedding: Elyssa & Tom

“We had both never been to The Breakers and when we arrived, the appearance alone took our breath away,” Elyssa says. “When we walked through the doors we felt like royalty and loved all the beautiful details and amenities. We knew it would be the perfect setting for our wedding weekend and that all of our guests would have the same ‘wow’ reaction we had.”

“The Breakers staff, especially our Event Sales Manager Katie Gillespie, made our experience even more amazing. I found myself calling or texting Katie to share exciting news because she was a friend, not just a coordinator,” Elyssa recalls. “Our great first impression hooked us in, but the treatment we received from beginning to end really separates The Breakers apart; we would choose to do it all over again!”

“One of our favorite memories was right before we went into cocktail hour. We were nervous about doing our choreographed first dance, so Katie escorted us into The Circle where the band was ready to do a run-through,” Elyssa says. “Our family and friends came long distances to share in our celebration, but in that moment Tom and I were able to have the whole room to ourselves. This truly was special as it allowed us to reflect on all the amazing facets that came together to make our wedding a dream come true.”
