Add Some Fun To Your Destination Wedding Weekend
When you host a destination wedding, there’s more to your weekend than the wedding.
Last June, Breakers’ bride and groom Amy and Tripp did something extremely unique. The destination wedding couple held a private tennis tournament, called the Palm Beach Wood Racquet Invitational, the morning of their wedding.

Tripp explains the couple’s vision best: “We wanted to host a non-traditional co-ed sporting event to accompany our wedding weekend at The Breakers. As a result, we were inspired to do something sporting, yet fun and comedic for all the guests.”
Thirty of the couple’s 54 wedding guests participated, all donning 1970’s era-appropriate gear with wooden racquets and white tennis balls.

After the tournament, Tripp and Amy awarded the top trophy to winners Chris and Lindsay – who also happened to be college tennis champs. The couple also handed out custom trophies for ‘Best Shorts’ and ‘The Bjorn Borg Award for Best Headband.’
The tournament, which was held at The Breakers’ Har-Tru tennis courts, even attracted the attention of the Washington Post. (Click here to read their review of the amazing wedding weekend at The Breakers.)
