FROM THE EDITOR

The best piece of marriage advice I’ve heard came from Charlie Brown: “Laugh together, and nothing will seem insurmountable.” Before you think I heed the words of Peanuts characters (which, incidentally, is not such a bad idea), let me say that Charlie Brown was the minister who joined my husband and me in holy matrimony. It was just the three of us at the altar, so he had a captive audience for his tidbits of wisdom, which echoed inside the hallowed cathedral of the American Church in Paris. Aside from Charlie’s words, which will always stay with me, I remember the day not as a cinematic whole but as a series of moments that were uniquely mine: the sunbeams refracted by Tiffany stained glass windows, the delicate stalks of the bluebells in my bouquet, the surprisingly intimate act of removing a glove to accept the wedding ring, a spring breeze ruffling the Seine. Brides I’ve spoken to recall their big days in much the same way. In this weddingthemed issue—our first ever—we present curated snapshots from three local weddings. From the historic halls of an iconic landmark to a petite in-town garden, the beauty of Palm Beach provides the perfect backdrop for these couples’ vows. What I love about these love stories is how different they are. Our cover couple, Zac and Brianna Potter, married in a private ceremony in Pan’s Garden, attended only by his sister, her mother, and their dog. Though they’re socially prominent, Zac and Brianna wanted the day to be a quiet celebration of their love and their connection to the place they now call home (“Palm Beach, Je T’Aime,” page 44). Danni and Richard Gaff, also well-known around town, opted for a grand affair at The Breakers—a fitting culmination of a romance that centered around dreams coming true (“Bucket List Bash,” page 48). And native daughter Lexci Reveley basked in all her Palm Beach childhood memories—from sun-soaked afternoons at the Sailfish Club to wading, fully dressed, in the ocean—as she became Mrs. Peter Wright (“Twice as Nice in Paradise,” page 54). Also inside: a guide to all things bridal, from trending cakes (page 60) to stylish engagement rings (page 32) to newlywed advice on how to make love last from a local officiant (page 24) who’s just as astute as Charlie Brown. Cheers,

CAPEHART

With nearly four decades dedicated to his craft, Mayors Jewelers design manager Bruno Dunlop views his work as his legacy, especially when it comes to custom engagement and wedding rings. “It’s something very intimate, something you’re going to cherish every day because it has huge emotional and sentimental importance to you,” he explains. “I feel like I’m invited to be part of the story of your life.” Whether incorporating heirloom jewels or starting fresh, Dunlop takes an artistic approach to crafting a ring. He begins with pencil sketches according to his clients’ vision, then colors them; once the final drawing is approved, he produces a 3-D rendering to be brought to life by hand. “I say that my jewelry is like handwritten love letters,” says Dunlop. “People remember the experience and cherish the result for many, many years to come.” (mayors.com) PALMBEACHILLUSTRATED.COM | JUNE 2019

INSIDER PERFECTLY PALM BEACH

Anatomy of a WELCOME BAG After a brief hiatus, welcome bags are making a comeback, according to Bettina Benizri, owner and head planner of Boca Raton–based Busy Bee’s Weddings and Events. “Welcome bags for out-of-town guests are especially important for South Florida weddings since the area doubles as a vacation destination,” she explains. “Trust me: Weddings in our area get a higherthan-usual ratio of yes RSVPs.” Here, Benizri offers ideas for how to stock your bag with locally sourced goods for guests to enjoy as they arrive for a weekend of you. (busybeesevents.com)

FOLLOW THE LEADER “A tote bag with a customillustrated map of the wedding destination will give guests a sense of place and show them nearby highlights and hot spots to explore. As an example, this design was created by Libby VanderPloeg for Eau Palm Beach and is placed in each guest room upon arrival.” (libbyvanderploeg.com)

INSIDE SCOOP “Madness Under the Royal Palms by Laurence Leamer is a juicy beach read that gives a peek behind the curtain of Palm Beach, and it’s sold at a lot of local bookstores. Your guests will savor time to chill on the sand and learn about the area’s scandals and history.”

COOKIE JAR “Every welcome bag needs a sweet treat. Earth & Sugar in West Palm Beach can literally put anything you want on a cookie, whether it’s a song lyric from your first dance, a picture of your fur baby, or maybe even an engagement photo.” (earthandsugar.com)

PRO TIP

SOLO SPA “A bath soak to use at home— like this one from The Wild Lily in West Palm Beach—is the perfect way to thank your guests for coming and give them a chance to relax and rejuvenate.” (thewildlily.com)

WITH LOVE “Gifting a customized postcard set makes your guests feel like they’re on vacation. Sarah and Shawn Gluchacki from The Windmill Paper Boutique in Boca Raton design in-house.” (windmillpaper.com)

SNACK TIME “I love the gourmet popcorn from Brown Bag Popcorn Co. in Boca because you can personalize your flavors or even put your crest on the bag. They have different options— everything from Key lime pie to bourbon chocolate cherry.” (brownbagpop cornco.com)

“AVOID INCLUDING ALCOHOL IN A WELCOME BAG. SOME HOTELS WON’T DISTRIBUTE GUEST BAGS THAT CONTAIN ALCOHOL SINCE IT’S A LIABILITY. AND DON’T INCLUDE ANYTHING THAT NEEDS TO BE REFRIGERATED BECAUSE WHO KNOWS HOW LONG THE BAGS WILL SIT BEFORE BEING DISTRIBUTED.”

ART of the Written Word West Palm Beach calligrapher Carla Hagan of Carla Hagan Designs is set apart not only by the beauty of her art but by the fact that she’ll write on anything and everything. Hagan thinks beyond paper and is equally at home with mediums as varied as glass, marble, sand dollars, and rose petals. “Pretty much anything I can write on, I’ll try it,” Hagan says with a laugh. “I’ve done 300 splits of Moët as escort cards.” Table centerpieces, wayfinding signs, invitations and stationery, cookies or macarons monogrammed with edible gold ink, agate coasters as place cards—Hagan incorporates calligraphy and engraving into wedding decor in creative and unexpected ways.

at one wedding, Hagan calligraphed Champagne glasses with guest names and table numbers. “No one was going to lose their place, because they were sipping it,” she explains. “My main thing is to make it different—people don’t see their name written like that. It’s a really big deal now because nobody gets letters, so it’s very gratifying for me.” (carlahagandesigns.com)

LOVE DOCTOR First comes love, then comes marriage— but how do you keep the bond strong once the wedding bells have stopped ringing? Gleaned from 30 years of officiating South Florida weddings, vow renewals, commitment ceremonies, and interfaith and nondenominational services, Cindy Serano of Ceremonies by Cindy offers a few pieces of sage advice. (ceremoniesbycindy.com)

Stop at Cholo Soy and Grato (right) on the Dixie Dining Corridor track.

TASTING MENU For a more active—and delicious—take on the traditional wedding weekend agenda, contact Kristl Story, founder and CEO (that’s chief eating officer) of West Palm Beach Food Tours. “A food tour is the perfect itinerary item because it’s sure to be a hit rather than a bore,” says Story. “Our tours are a moving feast through West Palm Beach, and we really make an experience out of it.” In addition to bachelor and bachelorette parties, bridesmaid luncheons, and private tours for out-of-town visitors, Story can provide an alternative to the usual sit-down rehearsal dinner by taking the bridal party for a tasty tour of town. “Guests can expect to try iconic South Florida foods (including the best Key lime pie 24

Kristl Story with tour participants

in town) and enjoy crazy stories, street art, and making memories,” she explains. “Food tourism is trending, and your guests will be glad for the full belly and interesting insight into our area.” Current tours on offer explore the food scene downtown and along the Dixie Dining Corridor. Cooking classes and private group tours are also available. (westpalmbeachfoodtour.com)

Marriage is a commitment of give and take, a partnership between equal individuals who choose to mold their lives together. Remember every day that love is a choice.

Trust and respect through the good times and challenging times alike is essential.

STYLE Iconic Union By Katherine Lande When it comes to the relationship between fashion designers and interior decorators, the question of who inspired whom often enters chicken-or-the-egg territory. Wes Gordon, creative director for Carolina Herrera, explores this connection in his Early Pre-Fall Collection, which presents whimsical pieces featuring prints pulled from the archives of celebrated 1920s interior designer Rose Cumming. In her heyday, Cumming’s patterns draped the homes of stars like Marlene Dietrich. Now, Gordon breathes new life into her vision with separates like a coquettish leopard neck-tie blouse ($1,090) and midi skirt ($1,490). Turn the page for more flirtatious fashions.

WANDERLUST Chronicles Interior designer Caroline Rafferty’s aesthetic harmonizes vintage and contemporary, a principle she shares at her new Royal Poinciana Plaza shop, The Grand Tour. Inspired by the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century educational rite of passage wherein European nobility would travel to cultural epicenters and collect artifacts, Rafferty and her mother, Julie Fisher Cummings, curate eclectic home finds from around the world. When she’s not hunting down unique design pieces, the mother of two focuses her passions on philanthropy and social justice. She’s a trustee of her grandparents’ Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation, serves as president of the Lovelight Foundation, sits on the board of the Palm Beach Day Academy and the Fresh Air Fund, and supports numerous other local nonprofits. —Liz Petoniak

Most remember the late German-born, Parisbased designer Karl Lagerfeld for his role as creative director for Chanel and Fendi. But what many may not know is that Lagerfeld also left his mark on the hotel world. At Hotel Metropole, Monte-Carlo, the designer was tasked with creating a haute couture pool area. The result is a fashionforward take on the mythical Ulysses journey that plays out over an enclave of manicured gardens, chic private cabanas, handsome loungers, and fresco-style glass installations lining the water’s edge (with black-and-white, Greek-inspired prints). Today, it’s possible for guests of Hotel Metropole, Monte-Carlo to splash, stand, pose, relax, and celebrity spot in a space that entirely encapsulates the fantasy of the master.

one of the world’s most iconic hotels has revealed the ultimate new-fashioned take on old-fashioned glamour. Say hello to the new Hotel de Paris, Monte-Carlo—yes, that Hotel de Paris which, in December, debuted the first complete overhaul in its 150-plus-year history. Exteriors were fully restored, rejuvenating the luster of the Belle Epoque–imbued facade true to its circa-1863 origins. As part of the complete interior reimagination, room inventory was decreased to create bigger suites embodying a sleek aesthetic rich in textures and earth tones. The redux also brings a surfeit of additions and enhancements: The grounds now include a garden courtyard, rooftop restaurant, spa, and pool, as well as a vertical expansion underscored by a bi-level rooftop villa that’s arguably the most coveted address in Europe (and definitely in Monaco and France). These two new penthouse floors comprise the largest and most expensive suite in all of Monte Carlo, and in a city where Benjamins fly like Monopoly money, that says a lot. « MONTE-CARLO SOCIÉTÉ DES BAINS DE MER

At one-Michelin-starred Yoshi, Robuchon’s sole Japanese restaurant, expect a five-star French twist on traditional Japanese cuisine. Beyond fresh nigiri, maki, sashimi, and teppanyaki-style meats, the 40-seat restaurant makes more eclectic dishes like Kabu to Omaru-Ebi, a lobster ravioli with marinated turnips, and Gyu-Hire, sliced beef filet, eggplant, poppy seeds, and seasonal mushrooms. At poolside restaurant Odyssey, look forward to Robuchon’s understudies serving up body-conscious seasonal fare along the lines of purple artichoke salad with arugula and parmesan.

RYAN LOCO

When Victor Figueredo wants to reconnect with his roots, he heads to Havana, Cuba with his camera in tow to capture every stuck-in-time corner of the city. Figueredo, principal of Koi Design Group, was born in Cuba and left shortly thereafter through Freedom Flights. In 1998, he returned to the Caribbean island for the first time as part of a delegation of Cuban Americans commemorating Pope John Paul II’s historic trip. Now that travel restrictions have eased, the Palm Beach resident aims to visit as often as possible to see family and friends, explore the city by foot, and savor its cuisine. If he’s not meeting with clients at his new West Palm Beach showroom, Figueredo can be found walking his four rescue dogs on the Lake Trail with his partner, Ross Meltzer, volunteering at Animal Care and Control, or supporting the Darbster Foundation. —Liz Petoniak

G-FORCE

The glorious new Mercedes-Benz 577-hp G 63 keeps its signature design and reinvents the rest By Howard Walker Remember Huey Lewis, front man of soft-rocking combo Huey Lewis and the News? Back in 1986, Huey must have had a premonition about the future of tough-truck SUVs. Why else would he have written those immortal lyrics, “Don’t tell me that I’m crazy, don’t tell me I’m nowhere. Take it from me, it’s hip to be square.” Fast-forward 33 years, and the hippest set of wheels money can buy is the rolling cinder block that is the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class. This thing is so square it makes a Lego look ovoid. So rectilinear it could double as a Maersk shipping container. So boxy Amazon could make it a poster child for its packaging division. Yet, it’s also so chic that it’s become the luxury SUV of choice for just about every major league athlete, A-list celeb, and Russian oligarch. Stars such as Justin Bieber, Gwen Stefani, and Sylvester Stallone have driven previous iterations of the iconic Geländewagen. The Kardashians buy them by the dozen. That’s pretty amazing for a rough-andready vehicle that started life 40 years ago as a bare-bones, utilitarian military runaround. 42

Up until last year the G-wagen was heavy on the head-turning style, light on the substance. Yes, it could crawl up the side of the Empire State Building and spin heads on Rodeo Drive. But to drive it was about as satisfying as piloting a UPS truck. Not anymore. This latest 2019 G might look identical to its predecessor, but it’s completely different from the lug nuts up. In a truly inspired piece of marketing genius, Mercedes changed everything apart from the one thing owners loved—that iconic design. In fact, beyond its appearance, only three items are carried over: the door handles, spare tire cover, and headlight washer nozzles. The rest? All new, and hugely improved. To expand interior space—a big complaint before—this G-Class is longer, wider, and lighter. Rear-seat riders now get 5.9 extra inches of legroom. The entire cabin has been ushered into the twenty-first century with twin 12-inch digital touch screens delivering the definition and clarity of Apple’s Retina Display. Arguably the biggest changes come beneath that classic, blast-fromthe-past body. In place of the kind of front suspension used on Fred Flintstone’s Flintmobile, there’s a fully independent setup. Add to this variable-ratio electromechanical power steering, and the new G feels a million times more dynamic, agile, and responsive. Yet the engineers at Mercedes have in no way diluted the G’s off-road capability. This big

Merc is so capable, it could teach Tibetan mountain goats a thing or two about tackling rocky, near-vertical trails. As for power, drivers can pick from two sensational 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8s. For the G 550 model (priced from $124,500) the V-8 cranks out a notinsignificant 416 horsepower. Step up to the totally insane AMG G 63 (yours for $147,500 and up) and prepare for 577 stampeding ponies. While the G 550 is fun, the G 63 is thrill-ride fun. It’s the type of exhilaration that comes from catapulting off the line and rushing from standstill to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. And the fun won’t stop until that speedo hits 149 mph. As far as auditory mayhem is concerned, expect AMG-tuned twin exhausts poking out from both sides of the truck,

each set capable of emitting a James Earl Jones–narrated Wrath of God soundtrack. But the true joy of the G 63 comes in being perched so high up as to look out over that vast clamshell hood and witness CinemaScope visibility. Consider King of the Hill status achieved. Yes, a Bentley Bentayga V8 might be more luxurious. A Lamborghini Urus may be faster. A Porsche Cayenne Turbo is undoubtedly more nimble. But I’d pick this new Mercedes AMG G 63 over all three because it still dares to be different. Old Huey was right: It really is hip to be square. «

Zac and Brianna Potter (née Mahler) exchanged vows at Pan’s Garden on Palm Beach. The only attendees were Brianna’s mother, Lynette Bryan (left), Zac’s sister, Heather Potter (right), and their dog, Wolfgang.

A

lthough not originally from Palm Beach, Zac and Brianna Potter found love in their adopted hometown. Sitting together in Sant Ambroeus—sipping matching cappuccinos—they describe their first date, which took place around the corner at the Palm Beach Grill. They giggle as they recall their second date, when they shared a bottle of wine from Amici Market before cozying up in a corner booth at Café L’Europe. They reminisce about their intimate December wedding ceremony held at Pan’s Garden. They reflect upon their twilight walks, when Brianna will meet Zac halfway between his office in downtown West Palm Beach and their home on the island, their German shepherd, Wolfgang, in tow. “It’s such a beautiful way to appreciate where we live,” says Brianna, who moved from Alaska in 2010. Zac also hails from the Pacific Northwest and relocated to Palm Beach in 2011, but the two didn’t start dating until June 2013. Regardless of the time it took to find one another, their connection was immediate. “We ended up really hitting it off on our first date,” says Zac, a partner at the law firm

Fisher Potter Hodas. “We closed down the restaurant.” “They were turning lights off around us,” adds Brianna. “I called my friend on the way home and said, ‘I love this man. This is my man.’ I haven’t met anybody else [who has] as good and golden of a heart as Zac does, and that became apparent to me on our first meeting.” “There was just that electricity that happens when you fall for somebody,” explains Zac as he looks lovingly into Brianna’s blue eyes. “Really from the second date on, we were—” “Inseparable,” she finishes. Chatting with the recently minted Mr. and Mrs. Potter, you get the sense that these two are still in the throes of infatuation, that they’re imprisoned to that almost painful need to be near one another. Brianna credits this energy to her frequent trips to France, first to study the language and then to pursue a culinary education at Le Cordon Bleu. “When we’re back together, it’s all fresh and brand new again and so exciting because distance makes the heart grow fonder.”

Zac was actually the one who encouraged Brianna to pursue cooking, even though she was a novice—to say the least. “I could barely boil spaghetti,” she says, laughing. “I didn’t like cooking because I was so bad at it.” “The first program was funny for her because she’s thinking that I convinced her to do something she was wildly unqualified for,” Zac continues. “Her lab partner was a chef from Cipriani in New York.” “Here I am learning how to use a knife for the first time, and he’s lapping me,” adds Brianna. “But I fell in love with it.” “From my perspective, it’s the best thing that ever happened to me,” says Zac.

46 PALM BEACH ILLUSTRATED

044_Potter_0619.indd 46

4/29/19 3:39 PM


Cooking, in fact, has become a pillar of their relationship. Brianna whips up a three-egg, French-style omelet for Zac each morning and often makes lunch for his entire office. In the evening, they discuss the details of their day with one another while Brianna prepares dinner and Zac acts as sampler extraordinaire. “She’s gone to a level where I try to not ruin things, so I stay out of it and entertain her as she cooks,” says Zac, who’s particularly fond of Brianna’s signature seven-hour sauce paired with beef Wellington or chicken and root vegetables. “One of the ways to keep things romantic is spending meals together, right?” Despite this love of all things fine dining, the couple’s first meal as husband and wife was airport food. Some context: After Zac popped the question in the South of France in June 2018, they began to plan their wedding for December 2019. But as the holiday season rolled around and with a trip to France on the horizon, Brianna and Zac felt they simply couldn’t wait to tie the knot. “We had been together for so long, I wanted to be able to call her my wife,” Zac explains. “Anything less than that just felt weird coming out of my mouth. It didn’t represent where we were, and waiting another year for that didn’t—” “Didn’t sit well,” says Brianna. “We didn’t want to,” continues Zac. “The thought was, well, maybe we’ll do a little, intimate wedding about a year before what we were originally planning.” On a Saturday in mid-December, Zac and Brianna made the decision to wed the following Friday. On Wednesday, Brianna purchased a lovely Dior dress and a birdcage veil from Saks Fifth Avenue. That same day, it dawned on Zac that Brianna’s mother needed to be at her daughter’s wedding. He covertly bought her a first-class, red-eye ticket from Alaska to South Florida. She arrived at the same time as Zac’s sister—the only other wedding guest— and Brianna wept with tears of joy when she went to greet her future sister-in-law and saw her mother, as well. “I had been too busy to really think about how much I would miss my mom being there,” says Brianna, noting that she’s her mother’s only child. “It all hit in that moment.” On the morning of Friday, December 21, Zac and Brianna exchanged vows at the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach’s Pan’s Garden

044_Potter_0619.indd 47

in front of his sister, her mother, and their dog. Zac FaceTimed his mother in California, her stepfather in Alaska, and a few of their close friends, who electronically looked on as Zac and Brianna became husband and wife. “It was like a combination of a small wedding with your family and eloping,” says Zac. “It was everything we had dreamt of and wanted,” adds Brianna. After the ceremony, the couple took photos in the garden and along Worth Avenue before heading to Miami for their overnight flight to Paris. During their chauffeured drive, the pair played Backgammon, a game Zac grew up with and that he’s since taught Brianna. They stayed in their wedding attire until they got on the plane, lending an elegant air to their airport dinner setting. “Walking through the airport in a white dress with a bouquet and him in tux, there were so

many congratulations and well-wishers,” Brianna recalls. “Every time I fly now, I want to wear a white dress and carry a bouquet.” The next day, they checked in to the Four Seasons Hotel George V, which was decked out in holiday decor. (“I’m a huge Christmas nut, so for me it was heaven on Earth,” Brianna says.) That evening, they enjoyed a proper celebratory feast at Le Cinq, the hotel’s threeMichelin-starred restaurant. After the New Year, Zac flew home and Brianna stayed on to finish her pastry courses, returning briefly over Valentine’s Day to show off her chocolate sculpture skills. And while France will always hold a special place in their hearts, they’re more than content to call Palm Beach home. “Forever,” says Zac. “Forever,” echoes Brianna. “We’ve really fallen in love.” Indeed, they have. « PALMBEACHILLUSTRATED.COM | JUNE 2019

Richard Gaff and Danni Melita kept their wedding intimate, limiting the guest list to around 100 and having four attendants each. Before the ceremony, Danni shared a first look with her parents (top left).

ew men would put as much time and effort into a marriage proposal as Richard Gaff. Popping the question to his then girlfriend, Danni Melita, was the culmination of three months of special outings, gleaned from conversations in which Danni told him about the fun experiences she hoped to have in her life. During dinner at the Seafood Bar at The Breakers, Richard revealed his intention to surprise Danni by fulfilling five items on their collective bucket list, though she wouldn’t know which items or when they would occur. “The first was a visit to the Zoological Wildlife Foundation in Miami, where we played with baby lions and tigers,” he says. “The second was riding horses on Jensen Beach. The third was a visit to the Biltmore Estate [in Asheville, North Carolina]. The fourth was a helicopter ride over Miami. And the fifth was to propose to my best friend.” Danni—who acts as senior IRB services coordinator at Advarra, an institutional review board that protects the rights and welfare of

human research subjects during clinical drug trials—says Richard pulled off his surprise proposal and, thanks to his ingenuity, it’s one for the family history books. He ticked off the fourth item on the list (the helicopter ride) during a weekend trip to Miami, and quickly followed it up with the fifth. The chopper flew the couple over the beach and then on to a bird’seye view of the gilded-age Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. “Richard asked the pilot where Vizcaya was, and I mentioned that I had never been there,” she says. The next morning, Richard told her they were going to visit the museum and have brunch. “When we got to Vizcaya, I felt so overdressed, but he kept saying it’s because

we were going to brunch after. We were walking all over the place, with me not realizing he was just stalling for time.” When an alarm on his phone sounded, Danni figured it was an alert for an auction on eBay. Instead, it was a reminder for Richard to pop the question at precisely 11:11 a.m. on 11/11. Why that particular month, day, and hour? “It’s where Veterans Day came from,” explains Richard, a U.S. Army veteran who served in the military police in Afghanistan in 2004 and 2005. “It’s the exact time that World War I ended, which became known as the eleventh hour. Originally it was called Armistice Day.” Ever the planner, Richard—who now works as a private wealth advisor at U.S. Bank in Palm Beach—even thought to hide a photographer nearby to record the proposal. Given the grand scale of this project, he knew he couldn’t top off the well-orchestrated occasion with just any engagement ring. Beginning with an idea of what Danni liked, he set out to make it unique, purchasing a crisscut diamond at Sotheby’s in New York and resetting it with the help of Provident Jewelry in Wellington. But long before the ring, the proposal, and the bucket-list adventure, Richard had to find his sweetheart. Originally from Indiana, he moved to Florida in 1998 with his parents. Though he and Danni attended the same high

048_GAFF_0619.indd 51

school in Wellington, they were three grades apart and didn’t know each other. Years later, they reconnected on Facebook. After battling cancer with Danni at his side, Richard says he “just knew” she was the one. For her part, Danni credits Richard’s smile as what initially attracted her; she counts his passion for everything he does and his devotion to friends and family as his most endearing traits. The couple, who live in Palm Beach Gardens, are often seen out and about in Palm Beach and Wellington, attending equestrian events, enjoying dinners and cocktails around town, and supporting charities such as the American Cancer Society, KidSanctuary, and The Arc of Palm Beach County, which aims to improve the lives of children and adults with learning disabilities. When it came time for the wedding on November 9, 2018, they returned to where Richard had put his proposal plan in motion: The Breakers. “It’s just a special place,” he says. “It’s one-of-a-kind and one of the last familyowned hotels. We had a lot of confidence in their services.” The couple wanted to keep the wedding small, with an intimate and elegant vibe, says Danni. The guest list only numbered about 100, a difficult achievement for a pair with so many friends. The bride-to-be organized the

event with help from Jeff Fowler, senior event sales manager at The Breakers, and opted to hold the ceremony in the Gold Room and the reception in the Mediterranean Room. Richard says that although Danni was responsible for the lion’s share of the planning, he had some input. The cake, a towering confection Danni describes as “vanilla on vanilla on vanilla,” was his idea. “Jeff asked what he wanted and he said vanilla,” says Danni. “What kind of frosting? Vanilla. What about the ice cream? Vanilla. Finally we got him to compromise a little with some raspberry filling and chocolate cups for the ice cream. It was so amazing. Richard keeps wanting to eat the cake topper, which is in our freezer, but I keep telling him it’s for our one-year anniversary.” The other groom contribution was a deeply personal touch that represents his family history and continuity. “My grandparents got married in a tiny church in Indiana—in fact, they met in that church,” he says. “My parents got married in that same tiny church. Ten years ago, they remodeled the church and I bought one of the stained glass windows. I knew a tiny church in Indiana was not going to work for our wedding, so I brought in the 52

explains Danni. A unique memento for the bride and groom came from artist James Charles Burge of Fine Art Palm Beach, who set up his easel to paint the ceremony and reception. The wedding went off without a hitch, a feat Danni credits to the professionals she worked with to carry out her vision. It’s also partly due to her attitude. “One piece of advice I was given that I remembered was to stop, take it all in, and enjoy every moment,” she says. “In the end, it was just the two of us.” « PALMBEACHILLUSTRATED.COM | JUNE 2019

etting married twice is commonplace—―but in the same week? With loved ones stretching from England to the Caribbean, from Palm Beach to Colorado, hosting two ceremonies was a blissful way for hometown socialite Alexandra “Lexci” Reveley to tie the knot with Peter Wright. Their first three-day celebration began on July 6, 2018 in Winter Park, Colorado, where Peter, a Denver native, grew up skiing. The second kicked off on July 11 in Palm Beach, where Lexci was raised since age 6. Breaking this milestone commitment into two events allowed the bride and groom to honor the occasion in the places that are special to each. It also gave their family and friends options based on proximity, availability, and connection to the couple. Both

were romantic, joyful, and meaningful because they served Lexci’s ultimate goal of “celebrating with the people I love, with the person I love.” Like their multiday nuptials, the couple’s romance also started in Colorado. Peter and Lexci met through Teach for America after being assigned to teach at high schools in low-income Colorado Springs neighborhoods. They already had certain things in common: Both were International Baccalaureate students in high school and went on to major in history. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Dickinson College in Pennsylvania. Lexci, a Cardinal Newman High School alumna, graduated from Boston College. She didn’t plan on a career in education, but her experience tutoring and coaching lacrosse pointed her in that direction. She taught math, instead of history, because it was one of

Both weddings were romantic, joyful, and meaningful because they served Lexci’s ultimate goal of “celebrating with the people I love, with the person I love.”

her strengths. “That’s what happens with opportunities,” she says. “They come to you and you take them.” On their first date, Peter picked up Lexci for a Sunday breakfast and hike. It had recently snowed, and the Florida girl indulged in building a mini-snowman. It was the beginning of a five-year courtship that led to a memorable proposal. On the day he asked her to be his wife, Peter again suggested going on a hike. Lexci wore athletic clothes, but Peter had showered, styled his hair, and dressed up in patterned shorts. “He looked like a newbie, like he didn’t belong on the hiking trails,” she says. Once the couple reached a bridge crossing a river in Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Peter knelt to pop the question. However, Lexci’s eyes hadn’t adjusted after removing her polarized glasses in the shade, and “I walked straight into him,” she says, laughing. After gaining their composure, he asked for her hand in marriage, and his sister, Abbie, screamed in delight, ―forgetting her key mission to snap photos. “We were a scene for sure,” Lexci recalls. “I knew it was coming eventually,

054_REVELEY_0619.indd 57

but I liked the element of being surprised.” Leading up to the proposal, Peter had been in covert communication with Lexci’s mother, Julie Reveley, because the bride-to-be had fallen in love with a distinctive antique ring Julie had come across in England. Upon returning to Palm Beach, Julie discovered a similar estate ring and sent it west at Peter’s behest. “It was serendipitous,” says Julie. When it came time to plan the wedding festivities, Lexci spearheaded the Colorado portion, while Julie orchestrated details in Palm Beach. “My mom is like Superwoman,” Lexci says. From the venues to the flowers to the bride wading into the ocean, the couple’s local celebration captured Lexci’s deep ties to the community with elegant Florida flair. A welcome party at the Sailfish Club of Florida launched three days of gatherings. Some 100 guests—many longtime friends of the Reveleys‚—arrived from Boston, New York, Denver, England, Portugal, and Jamaica ―to meet Peter’s family and mingle with local acquaintances over a light-fare dinner.

Klinzing at St. Edward Church, where Lexci had her First Communion and Confirmation, served as an altar girl, and sang in the choir. The couple is planning to have their future children baptized at St. Edward. Afterward, they headed over to The Beach Club for a pre-sunset filet mignon and halibut dinner reception and dancing to the versatile repertoire of Street Talk Band.

In her off-the-shoulder, organza fil coupé gown, designed and made by New York City–based Lela Rose, Lexci ventured into the Atlantic Ocean, where she grew up splashing and snorkeling.

fortable: a Lilly Pulitzer dress, of course. The Reveleys have been members of the Sailfish Club of Florida and The Beach Club for more than two decades, so both waterfront landmarks where Lexci grew up swimming and playing tennis were ideal venues for her wedding. The grand finale―, Friday brunch at her parents’ Hypoluxo Island estate―, was an intimate and delicious way to share gratitude and send off friends from near and far. Lexci is already envisioning a similar brunch, catered by Doreen Alfaro of Christafaro’s, for a baby shower. Back in Denver, Peter teaches a course called Theory of Knowledge and coordinates a high school International Baccalaureate program. Lexci is pursuing a master’s degree in speechlanguage pathology through New York University, with plans to study in Sweden this summer. Reflecting on the whirlwind weddings of last year, Lexci says, “I loved both events. Neither was meant to include or exclude anyone. What matters is Peter and I are happy to spend time with people we love.” «

The humidity that permeates South Florida during the summer brings at least one sweet perk: mangoes. Grocery stores and markets are brimming with this golden fruit, and those with mango trees in their backyards are often bequeathed a bounty so large that some serious creativity is required to use it all up. While mango’s saccharine flavor lends itself well to sticky rice, ceviche, and barbecue sauce for grilling, incorporating it into a cocktail also offers an easy and refreshing solution. Muddle mango into a mojito, blend it into a frozen libation, or combine it with another stone fruit like Deck 84 does in its mango peach boat drink. Make the cocktail by combining 2 oz. Deep Eddy Peach Vodka, 1/2 oz. mango purée, and 1 oz. sour mix (equal parts water, sugar, and citrus juice) in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, strain into a glass with ice, and sip the benefits of living in paradise. Delray Beach (deck84.com) —Liz Petoniak

HOT SPOT

LIBBY VOLGYES

BAYFRONT BOUNTY Devotees of fresh seafood will appreciate Loch Bar, the newest addition to Boca Raton’s Mizner Park. Tucked into the space formerly occupied by Gigi’s, it replicates a highly successful venture located in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. French onion To start, the restaurant offers a soup rotating selection of oysters from across the country. Those bivalves can be paired with clams, mussels, shrimp, lobster tails, and crab legs to form a variety of shellfish towers. Tuna poke—chunks of pristine yellowfin bathed in chili oil and accompanied by a kicked-up soy-ginger dressing—is also a standout among the appetizers. Entrees strike a graceful balance between the gems of the sea (think

Maine diver scallops and grilled Atlantic swordfish) and land (roast or fried chicken and a rendition of steak frites). Given Loch Bar’s Maryland pedigree, though, you can’t pass on the crab cakes. Large chunks of backfin lump crabmeat are held together with an absolute minimum of filler and served with mixed greens and an Old Bay remoulade. Decor at Loch Bar is upscale yet comfortable, with several bars at which customers can relax and enjoy nightly live music. Your tenure on those stools will be made more enjoyable by a formidable whiskey list that is heavy on hard-to-find American spirits and Scottish single malts. (lochbar.com) —Mark Spivak

Highlands distiller Glenfiddich is experimenting with barrel aging, resulting in such spirits as Fire & Cane, which is aged in bourbon barrels and rum casks.

Scotch whisky develops distinct flavors and finds new followers through the use of RECYCLED, TOASTED, or CHARRED CASKS

By Mark Spivak

ingle malt Scotch has always been the refuge of the purist. Distillers with generations of family experience have dedicated themselves to crafting these hyper-local spirits according to ancient recipes—and consumers have long appreciated this noble task. Even in eras when connoisseurs overwhelmingly preferred wine over liquor, single malts were objects of desire. When the most recent explosion of the cocktail culture occurred in the 1990s, however, things began to change. The new wave of mixologists sought to make a statement with bold, arresting flavors, and single malt Scotch suddenly felt tame alongside bourbon and rye. As the consumption of spirits soared and prices achieved unheard-of levels, Scotch seemed more and more like your grandfather’s drink. As a result, Highland distillers are increasingly turning to the process

of cask finishing to enrich their whisky. The spirit is removed from its original aging barrel and placed in a different one for six months or less prior to bottling. The practice was first used in 1982 when The Balvenie released a malt that had rested in Sherry casks. Today, it’s not unusual for single malts to be finished in casks that once held wine, Port, Cognac, Madeira, or American rye or bourbon, as well as barrels that have been heavily toasted or charred. How common is it? Costco sells 18-year-old Kirkland Speyside Sherry Cask Finish ($33), and Trader Joe’s has jumped on the trend with the Highland Malt Bourbon Cask Finish ($18). Experimentation is also flourishing at the upper end of the market. Case in point is the Bowmore 27-year-old Port Cask Finish ($415), part of the Vintner’s Trilogy series from the historic distillery on the island

of Islay. This exceptional malt spends 13 years in bourbon barrels followed by 14 years in Port pipes, resulting in a dramatic reddish-mahogany color. You might mistake it for bourbon at first whiff, were it not for the earthy scent of peat poking up through the sweetness. That sensation hits the palate first, followed by saline flavors and caramel notes. The finish is rich and meaty with a salty tang. Even Glenfiddich, the benchmark Highlands distillery that virtually created the single malt category after World War II, is getting in on the action. It recently debuted Fire & Cane ($50), the fourth in a series of experimental expressions. It consists of a peated malt (rare for Glenfiddich) that is aged in bourbon barrels before spending three months in rum casks. Those rum casks mask the peat on the nose, which yields aromas of toffee and salt air. In the mouth, the spirit does a remarkable balancing act: Smoky, sweet, and angular all at once, it marries the richness of bourbon with the tart astringency of single malt Scotch. Hints of spice and candied fruit linger on the long finish. Across the Irish Sea, single malt Irish whiskey is finally getting the respect it deserves—also aided by the use of Sherry, Port, and Madeira casks. The Tyrconnell, a venerable operation dating to 1876, employs all three in different age-dated expressions. The 15-year-old Madeira Cask Finish ($110) has a light amber color and a nose redolent of crushed hazelnuts and sea spray. In the mouth, mocha and caramel intertwine with red fruits and butterscotch. The malt’s elegant texture is nicely enhanced by the sweetness from the Madeira barrels, making it the perfect accompaniment for a rainy night by the fire. «

DESIGN

Looking to craft a cozy winter haven in Palm Beach Gardens, a Michiganbased couple enlisted the services of Krista Watterworth Alterman of Krista + Home to help them establish an enticing family gathering spot for themselves and their adult children. Originally, it was “a dark and dated Tuscan-style home with mustard walls and heavy faux architectural details,” says the designer. “I wanted to create a vibrant, beautiful, open, and contemporary space. Since this is a vacation home, I really wanted to give them an elegant but relaxing retreat.” For the bedroom, the couple desired the feel of an upscale hotel in Indonesia or South Africa. Watterworth Alterman was able to turn that request into a reality by utilizing a natural woven navy wallpaper, installing porcelain flooring that resembles French oak, and introducing a gorgeous canopy bed with luxurious silk and velvet throw pillows. Her favorite part? “I love the touch of magenta, mostly because it speaks to the heart and personality of my client. She adores bright yet rich colors. This brings a touch of playfulness and fun to the space.” Palm Beach Gardens (kristahome.com)

Greenwich to Palm Beach

Waterfront Properties’ Eric Ditri Knows the Way Sellers and Buyers Follow His Lead An agent in Waterfront’s Palm Beach office, Eric Ditri relocated almost ten years ago from Greenwich, Connecticut. He transitioned to Palm Beach area luxury real estate direct from an executive position at Greenwich’s Gatehouse Partners, LLC, a luxury estate homebuilder building high-end homes in Connecticut, New York and Martha’s Vineyard. “Where I came from has a lot to do with why I chose Waterfront. I did a lot of research on local firms to find one that offered me a similar combination of structure and resources. Hands down, Waterfront gave me the best opportunity to reach the goals I’d set for myself. Most of the agents I viewed as successful were all at Waterfront.”

PROMOTION

Eric-PBI.indd 2-3


Now, nearly a decade later, Eric is one of the successful agents who sellers and buyers look to with confidence. The foundation of his considerable business was built almost entirely on Waterfront-supplied leads. Eric said his transition from luxury real estate builder in the northeast to luxury home sales in Palm Beach is precisely what makes him a much more effective agent for Palm Beach buyers and sellers. “So much has gone into my evolution as an agent. There’s Joan Thomson’s 50 years of experience. She still works with me in drafting precise contracts to avoid mistakes that can bog down a transaction. I have the advantage of an in-house marketing team. I’ve learned what works to market a property.” Eric continued, “There are so many ways to sell real estate. Waterfront taught me there’s only one ‘right’ way.” Waterfront Properties Owner Rob Thomson said Eric himself was the biggest factor in any success he’s achieved. “There are two keys that really work for Eric. First, he’s extremely effective. He’s the guy who makes sure transactions are efficient. He doesn’t needlessly tax clients’ time in any way. Second, he knows Palm Beach incredibly well from both a valueto-market perspective and the social lifestyle that many buyers want. Being from Greenwich, he’s made the leap many buyers hope to make.” The Wall Street Journal reported as recently as April 2019, some of the wealthiest New Yorkers “have decamped to Florida in search of more favorable tax rates.” The flow from the Eastern Seaboard to Florida has not slowed. Rob added, “Eric helps these buyers make the transition seamlessly.” Eric said, “Seeing our process work time and again, it’s not just good timing or luck. As just one example, I

WAT ERFRONT PROPERT IES AND CLUB COMMUNITIES

took over a listing that previously sat unsold for more than a year. The home was said to be overpriced. We properly marketed the property, at a higher price. It sold in two months. I attribute that to aggressive marketing and strategic international marketing.” Today, and certainly almost ten years ago, many brokerages, especially some in Palm Beach, continue to follow the old model of real estate that depends largely on who you know. “Waterfront’s entire model hinges on how much we know.” Eric went on to say, “Palm Beach is really a perfect test case for the success a modern, well run, and resourced brokerage can attain in what’s often described as a traditional market. When presented with the truth only data can tell, even the old guard takes notice.” Resources Eric touts include Waterfront’s listings featured on almost 6,000 websites, including Waterfront’s award-winning website, capturing qualified buyers from the local market, across the country and internationally. Waterfront was hand-selected by two exclusive international broker networks to represent the networks in Waterfront’s market area: The Board of Regents—a prominent network of LRE, the world’s most elite luxury real estate professionals—and an exclusive alliance with Mayfair International and Mayfair’s 376 offices across 50 European countries. Dedicated agents “in-country” act as personal advocates for Eric’s sellers’ properties. A former USTA tennis professional and accomplished golfer, Eric enjoys the lifestyle he sells. “To be able to do the things I love year round is very special. I get why people come here. I love that I get to help them.”

Bridesmaid SPAcation

A spa outing is a fabulous way to celebrate with your bridesmaids before walking down the aisle. To maximize benefits, it pays to customize selections to suit the spa goer. Match each bridesmaid’s needs with the appropriate massage available at West Palm Beach holistic sanctuary Tammy Fender to create the ideal cocktail for relaxation. (tammyfender.com) The Frets: Fatigued muscles, inflammation, tired skin The Fix: Herbal Poultice Compress Massage This treatment uses warmed, aromatic poultices (pictured)—infused with ingredients such as anti-inflammatory turmeric and astringent lemongrass—that are wrapped around the body. A deep-tissue massage promotes microcirculation, aids in absorption of essential nutrients, and alleviates sore muscles. The Frets: High stress, sleep deprivation, lack of clarity The Fix: Shirodhara with Reflexology In this sacred practice, a stream of warm oil is poured onto the forehead to bring the body into a meditative state of relaxation. This is paired with reflexology, wherein key reflex points in the feet are stimulated to release tension and remove energy blockages. The Frets: Tight muscles, low energy, lack of flexibility The Fix: Thai Yoga Massage Thai-born therapist Lumduan Roth practices this treatment believed to have been created more than 2,500 years ago. She performs yoga-like stretching as well as deep massage and acupressure along the energetic meridian while the guest relaxes and soaks in the energizing benefits.

BALANCE ABOUT FACE

Wedding Beauty COUNTDOWN

IF YOU WANT TO BE PICTURE-PERFECT ON YOUR BIG DAY, PREP WORK SHOULD BEGIN MONTHS IN ADVANCE. CONSULT THIS CHECKLIST TO MAKE SURE YOU’RE READY FOR YOUR CLOSE-UP.

Six Months Out » It’s time to jump-start your skincare routine. Meet with a dermatologist to formulate a daily cleansing and moisturizing plan. It can take months for the topicals used to treat acne and uneven pigmentation to show results, and lasers for fine lines and brown spots may require multiple treatments. Keep the skin-care initiative going by booking a facial every four to six weeks. » Begin professionally shaping your eyebrows. If they are over-plucked, it can take time for them to grow back. Ask about regrowth serum to help with the bulking-up process. » Audition your glam squad. Allow the makeup artist to apply a full wedding-day face and take photos to see how it looks in print. When it comes to hair, bring pictures of styles

you like and of your veil and headpiece. If you are thinking of a change in cut or color, this is your last opportunity to try something new. Three Months Out » Experiment with spray tanning. Consider the neckline and back of your dress to determine which tan lines you’ll need to eliminate, and wear a T-shirt in a shade similar to your dress to gauge what level tan works best. » Check in with your dermatologist to assess your skin-care progress and what additional steps, if any, need to be taken. Two Months Out » Last call for Botox and dermal fillers. You want to give them enough

time to take full effect, but not get them too far in advance that they wear off. One Month Out » Visit your dentist and have your teeth whitened. Avoid staining drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine for a few days afterward. » If your hair tends to be frizzy, consider an in-salon keratin treatment. Having it done one month in advance allows hair to be the right texture but not fall too flat. However, this type of conditioning is not recommended for those opting for an up-do. » Get lash extensions, which typically last six to eight weeks. By applying them a month ahead, you can ensure there is no adverse reaction and have time to adjust volume and length, if necessary. » Do not begin using any new skin products. Focus on mild exfoliating and moisturizing of your face and body, and be vigilant when it comes to applying sunscreen. » Start aiming for eight hours of sleep every night to prevent undereye bags and other signs of fatigue. Two Weeks Out » No more prolonged sun exposure. You don’t want any last-minute tan lines or an uneven complexion.

» Get a haircut based on the plan established by your stylist. Also, now’s the time to color or highlight hair—as long as it’s a look you’ve tried before. The dye will have a chance to settle, but no roots will have time to grow. » Make sure you are moisturizing your skin, particularly your elbows, hands, and feet. » Drink tons of water to keep skin glowing. » Confirm all of your day-of beauty appointments. One Week Out » Ensure your honeymoon will be smooth sailing by waxing what needs to be waxed. » Get your final eyebrow shaping and facial. Three Days Out » It’s time for your last spray tan. Three days out guarantees it will develop before the rehearsal dinner and wedding day, but not come off on any of your dresses. » Touch up lashes, if needed. One Day Out » Indulge in a pedicure and manicure. Use the polish color you previously decided on (no going rogue now) and consider gel polish, which will last throughout the honeymoon.

Q&A

SIGH OF RELIEF

Everyone does it all day every day, but there’s a better way to breathe. Transformational breathing can be used to promote calmness, reduce anxiety, increase energy, and attain higher levels of consciousness. To master this self-empowering process, individuals should consult trained experts such as local certified transformational breath facilitator Alexandra Andrews, who leads group and private sessions at the Jamar Enlightenment Center in Palm Beach Gardens and in clients’ homes. Here, she provides insight into the practice. (alextbrlmt.com; jamarcenter.com) their chest. For chest breathers, we teach them how to start their breath in the belly and bring it up to their chest. By breathing diaphragmatically, we can make the lymphatic system 17 times more efficient. Transformational breathing is said to work on three levels. Can you explain? The physical level has to do with opening and clearing restricted breathing patterns or basically learning how to breathe more effectively and easily. Most people only use about 20 to 25 percent of their lung capacity due to closed and restricted breathing patterns. The second level, the mental/emotional level, effectively works on healing traumas and negativity in the subconscious mind. This includes old unexpressed emotions (sometimes called repressions), negative beliefs, old tapes, and past memories, all of which are stored on a cellular level. The third level is consciously connecting with our higher aspects of conscious reality. Sometimes in level three, people actually have mystical experiences as they are becoming aware of other dimensions and higher aspects of self.

«

PBI: Why is transformational breathing becoming so popular? Andrews: The beauty of the work is that it does not require any active contribution from the mind; you don’t have to change your thinking or belief system in order to get the benefits. All you, as a participant, have to do is breathe in the TB pattern with a trained facilitator coaching you. On the physical level, once we learn how to breathe with the diaphragm and flow the breath up to the chest, we have more energy to do everything—to think more clearly, to do more, and to feel more. When your breath is open and flowing, life is open and flowing. What can people expect from a transformational breathing session?  A client will learn how to breathe with their diaphragm or to breathe into their belly. They will learn how to relax their exhale and how to breathe in a conscious, connected pattern. Ideally, the client will start lying down on a mat, and the facilitator will do a breath analysis to determine what the current breath pattern is. Most people are either belly breathers or chest breathers. For belly breathers, we teach them how to take their breath from the belly up into

SOLE Beneficiary Unlike other functional footwear, flip-flops offer no arch support, shock absorption, or heel cushioning. As a result, frequent wear can lead to general foot pain, tendonitis, and even plantar fasciitis, inflammation of the tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot and can cause stabbing pain near the heel. To combat these issues, podiatrist and orthotics innovator Phillip Vasyli launched Vionic, which offers stylish footwear, including flip-flops, with biomechanical technology concealed in each shoe. For example, the Noosa Sandals ($39.95) feature a premium, injectionmolded EVA footbed that provides the same cushioning and comfort as athletic shoes. Available in a range of colors and patterns, they’re the perfect wedding favor that will allow guests to dance the night away. (vionic.com)

The universe holds mysteries beyond our wildest dreams. Astronomy photographers seek to decode these secrets, emerging in the night to point their cameras to the sky in search of transcendental beauty and tangible insights among the faraway stars. The Vero Beach Museum of Art will display some of the fruits of their labor when it hosts the traveling exhibit “Astronomy Photographer of the Year” from June 1 to September 29. Since 2009, London’s Royal Observatory has issued an open call to amateur and professional photogs in want of the year’s most-compelling celestial images. The result is a near decade of stellar snaps showcasing everything from a parade of planets aligned like soldiers to the northern lights illuminating a nocturnal seascape. In conjunction with this special show, which will be staged in the Holmes Gallery, the museum will also present “Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads: Gold” in its Stark Rotunda. Created by multimedia artist, designer, and social activist Ai Weiwei, this collection of 12 sculptures depicts the Chinese zodiac’s animal representations and recalls the dozen zodiac heads once housed at Beijing’s Yuanming Yuan. It will also open on June 1 and remain on view through December 15. (vbmuseum.org)

CHRIS ROGERS

The easy-rocking quartet that implored ’90s audiences to “Hold My Hand” returns with a summer tour in honor of one of the best-selling records of all time. Hootie & the Blowfish will perform at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach June 8, having reunited after a 10-year hiatus to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of Cracked Rear View, an album that contains chart-toppers like “Let Her Cry” and “I Only Wanna Be With You” and earned the group two Grammys. In a twist sure to please Gen Xers across South Florida, Hootie will welcome special guest Barenaked Ladies. The Canadian rockers are perhaps most famous for their 1998 humorous hit “One Week,” which features such timestamped lyrics as “Watchin’ X-Files with no lights on, we’re dans la maison, I hope the Smoking Man’s in this one.” In the years since, they’ve continued to record and even released a children’s album, Snacktime!, in 2008.

LIVE COMEDY

FUNNY GIRL HUGH STEWART

Life is never as fabulous as it appears on Instagram. Just ask Celeste Barber. The Australian comedian is an “anti-influencer” who rose to Instagram fame and amassed more than 5.6 million followers with her recreations of popular photos of the Kardashians and top models such as Martha Hunt and Bella Hadid. In addition to her parody posts, she also attempts to rise to the aspirational lifestyle shown in celebrity vlogs and tutorials, infusing her #celestechallengeaccepted videos with her signature self-deprecating humor and unadulterated realness. Barber will leave the Insta world behind (for now) when she appears at Palm Beach Improv in West Palm Beach. Across four performances on June 28 and 29, she’ll share the stories behind some of her favorite posts and discuss life as a social media star—whatever that means. (palmbeachimprov.com)

As the season revs up, travels à la plage become a way of life. My picks this month will keep you looking glam and help shield your skin from harsh summer rays. Who doesn’t want to feel like a chic French girl? Spritz in this texture hairspray and achieve instant effortless beauty. Bonus: The 3.4-ounce size adheres to TSA carry-on restrictions. As you douse yourself in sunscreen, remember to reach for an organic option. I’m partial to Coola’s spray in piña colada. Bathing suits are a personal choice, but a great one-piece—such as this metallic, asymmetrical number by Lisa Marie Fernandez—can flatter any silhouette. Pair it with BuDhaGirl’s All Weather Bangles which are 100-percent waterproof, making them the ideal accessory for beachfront soirees or poolside events. Best of all, each bangle represents an l FOR MORE FASHIONABLE intention for the day—even if that BUYS, WATCH THE “EMILY’S PICKS” intent consists of nothing more SEGMENT ON CBS12.COM. than finding your zen in the sand.
