Awesome special event at The Breakers
South Florida is a very popular spot for large companies to host their corporate gatherings such as annual sales meetings and conventions. In addition, some companies choose to host more involved company-wide events here. Large holiday parties and corporate celebrations are often held here in South Florida where the weather is conducive to being outdoors all year long.
We recently photographed a very large corporate event held at The Breakers Palm Beach. The event coincided with the holiday season, so it served several purposes for the (anonymous) hosting company. Due to the wide range of activities scheduled for this event as well as the large number of people, The Breakers Palm Beach was the perfect venue to host the function. Many different spaces both inside and outside the hotel were utilized to fulfill the needs of this party. There was a awards ceremony hosted indoors as well as a sit down dinner complete with all kinds of magnificent entertainment. A fabulous cocktail party was thrown on the Ocean Lawn complete with music, hors’doevres, fire dancers and even a “step and repeat” wall in which guests were able to have their portraits taken and then pick them up later as they were displayed at a truly over the top dessert bash!
For guests attending this event from northern parts of the country, it had to have been a real treat to be able to enjoy being outside for part of this party. With temperatures at a very comfortable level, guests were able to mingle, socialize, have their photos taken and enjoy the fine drinks and food – and not be all bundled up in winter coats! Guests especially were thrilled at being able to retrieve their photos in a beautiful customized picture frame with the company’s logo. It was a lovely gift to serve as a memento of a night to remember.
As one of our tasks was to photograph all the food that was served, we hope that these photographs will bring you the full scope of just how elaborate this party was on every level. The food, flawlessly prepared by The Breakers, was nothing short of spectacular. Every dish delectable and the dessert buffet was beyond words! Literally every type of goody you could imagine was available – from donuts to custom flambés, to ice scream sundaes, mousses, cakes and more. You name it – it was there and more tempting than ever! In addition, there were liquors, all kinds of coffee drinks and a cigar roller. No detail was forgotten.
As a South Florida corporate event photographer, I have to say that this was one of the most magnificent events I’ve ever photographed. Kym Bichon of The Breakers did an incredible job managing and coordinating all of these many, many details. There were lots of vendors to work with, plus the hotel staff and of course her client. We loved being a part of this event and hope to work with this team again in the future. Enjoy these photos!! I think they truly show what a great place The Breakers is to host a corporate party that’s beyond impressive – it’s an experience that nobody is likely to forget.
