Even though Alice Roi, a fashion designer, is used to big runway productions, she was, in her words, "a nervous wreck" on her wedding day. But her nerves settled once she saw her fiancé, Marc, standing under the chuppah in the garden of the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Florida. (The New Yorkers chose this location because they'd both vacationed there, but never met, while growing up.) From the 90-minute Jewish ceremony to the romantic ballroom reception, the decor conveyed a Midsummer Night's Dream theme.

A Manhattan couple weds in their childhood vacation spot

Even though Alice Roi, a fashion designer, is used to big runway productions, she was, in her words, "a nervous wreck" on her wedding day. But her nerves settled once she saw her fiancé, Marc, standing under the chuppah in the garden of the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Florida. (The New Yorkers chose this location because they'd both vacationed there, but never met, while growing up.) From the 90-minute Jewish ceremony to the romantic ballroom reception, the decor conveyed a Midsummer Night's Dream theme.

Each table was named after a character from A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream, a theme further enhanced by lush centerpieces of roses, hydrangeas, and mums and gold-rimmed water goblets. On the dinner menu: lemon salmon and pepper steak.
