When Saumya and Khush were ready to plan their special day, they set out to find a location that could accommodate both a Sikh and Hindu wedding ceremony. Once they visited The Breakers, they knew they had found the perfect venue for their needs, and so much more.

“We wanted to give our guests an experience they would never forget,” Saumya recalls.  “Our very first meeting with Jeff convinced us that the only limitations on our dream wedding would be our own imagination! The immediate feeling as we entered The Breakers was grandeur and inspiration…”

“I was overwhelmed with emotions as my father walked me down the aisle on the Ocean Lawn,” Saumya shares, thinking back to her favorite wedding day memories. “With the sun beaming, my family and friends standing before me, the palm trees swaying before the heavenly backdrop of the sky and sailboats on the blue ocean… I saw my groom waiting with a loving smile that I will never forgot.”

“As we made our grand entrance into the Mediterranean Ballroom, I saw the faces of our dearest family and friends,” Khush shares. “When I turned to dance, the waiters surprised us by circling the floor with candle sparklers. I looked upon my wife against the backdrops of the lights, and in all the excitement I felt like she was the only person in the room.”

The Breakers Palm Beach first opened its doors on January 16, 1896. Today, we celebrate 122 years.

Breakers History: The Breakers Palm Beach Celebrates 122 Years

The Breakers founder Henry Morrison FlaglerIn honor of this special anniversary, here’s a look at some historical images and a bit of Breakers’ history…

In the late 1890s, just before the turn of the century, industry tycoons and elegant socialites began flocking to the pristine shores of a new destination—a long strip of an island called Palm Beach.

It was our founder Henry Morrison Flagler, one of America’s great industrialists, who started the trend of grand, gorgeous properties on the island. His first was The Royal Poinciana, a six-story Georgian beauty. Two years later, Flagler debuted his premier oceanfront hotel, which delighted guests with its proximity to the water and unique location—right at “the breakers,” where the waves crashed and sprayed.

After fires in both 1903 and 1925, the hotel reemerged more opulent each time. The second reconstruction of The Breakers was awarded to New York City-based designers Shultze and Weaver, the same minds who would later create many of Manhattan’s most coveted hotels: the Pierre, the Sherry-Netherland and Park Avenue’s Waldorf Astoria. Described by the duo as “the acme of perfection in design and magnificence,” The Breakers reopened in 1926, ushering in a higher degree of European influence and architectural flair.

Flagler’s newest iteration was modeled after the magnificent Villa Medici in Rome—an ambitious effort that called for 75 artisans brought in from Italy. Together they completed the intricate paintings, detailed across the ceilings of the 200-foot-long main lobby and first-floor public rooms, which remain on display today. It was a grand gesture that placed The Breakers in a class all its own.

Year by year, the resort’s reputation grew and word spread, beckoning the glitterati to vacation in Palm Beach year-round. At any given time, the guest register read like a “who’s who” of early 20th-century America: Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Astors, Andrew Carnegie and J.P. Morgan, vacationing alongside US presidents and European nobility.
