Real Wedding: Sophia Vergara & Joe Manganiello

Actress Sofia Vergara, known for her role as Gloria in the hit series Modern Family and actor Joe Manganiello, known for his role as Richie in the film Magic Mike, were married at The Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.

Jeff Leatham was responsible for styling the wedding flowers exclusively selected from Dutch growers through a collaboration with LM Flower Fashion, a Dutch flowers promotion platform and delivered in partnership with FloraHolland via transporter J. Van Vliet in Miami. Flower varieties included:

Sofia carried a bridal bouquet of Phalaenopsis ‘Sensation White’ by Walter Grootscholten Orchids which perfectly complimented her strapless wedding gown designed by Zuhair Murad (which reportedly took 32 people working around the clock for 1,657 hours to make and incorporated 6lbs of pearls and 11lbs of sequins in the intricate bead work). From the floral trees and low hedges lining the stunning ceremony aisle and altar area  to the opulent reception table centerpieces and pavé orchid arrangements punctuating the dance floor, Jeff Leatham did an amazing job of bringing the fairytale setting to life with thousands of Dutch blooms.

  2. Looks like an incredible wedding. I love the hanging flowers in the ceremony area, though I wonder how they affected the sightlines of the guests.
