Breakers’ Dream Makers: Ruben Senderey
During wedding season, our team is used to seeing Ruben and his Senderey Video team at The Breakers. One of our wedding partners, Ruben says his love for filming started at film club back in high school.
“What was a hobby at age 16, turned into an established business in 1982,” Ruben says. “Since then, we’ve been specializing in capturing all those hidden moments on film.”

A: Filming an event at the Breakers is an honored opportunity. Between the incredibly friendly and helpful staff, to the amazing architecture, it’s an absolute pleasure. It’s one of the most beautiful landmarks in South Florida.

A: The entire hotel, with its Italian Renaissance aura and friendly atmosphere is extremely addicting to only want to continue filming beautiful events. From the very beginning of entering The Breakers with it’s beautiful fountain, to filming ceremonies by the pool with the ocean view, to the marble floors of the Venetian Ballroom … The Breakers is truly THE place and absolutely just one of a kind.

Q: What hot new trend do you see emerging for winter weddings? How about 2012?
A: Crisp, clean and white! Normally, winter time we see many combinations of pastel colors with a deeper accent tone (example: baby blues and deep chocolate).
