Abigail and Warren’s elegant, tropical wedding in Palm Beach was a dream many years in the making. Expertly planned by Jenn Hearon of the Weekend Collective, this incredibly touching union didn’t leave a dry eye in attendance.
More on their romantic story below…
The couple thoughtfully created a very personal and wish-fulfilling celebration on all fronts. Inspired by their garden in Palm Beach, each celebration embodied the lush greenery and colorful florals of the region.
The bride wore a line up of festive, impeccably styled gowns by celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger. From Oscar to Dolce & Gabbana, to Micaela’s own bespoke bridal wear—it was a fashion dream come true.
After the intimate ceremony, dinner was served under a canopy of roses and lanterns in a dreamy courtyard. It all culminated in a surprise fireworks display overlooking Lake Worth, followed by a Moroccan themed-after party.
All around, this was a celebration that whispered: Happiness is real, and you can find it in Palm Beach.
Not Your Average Love Story
This is not your typical love story.
When fashion executive Abigail Klem Spector and private equity executive Warren Spector met, Abigail was a single mom in her late 40’s. And Warren had recently lost his wife of 23 years to cancer.
Abigail had always hoped to find a partner—and a father for her daughter, Georgia. She knew that “finding someone who was not only right for me, but also right for Georgia, might not be possible”. And that was okay.
So when she met Warren, they both knew it was something special.
For two years, the couple maintained a long-distance relationship between NYC and Palm Beach. And just two weeks into the 2020 lockdown, Warren proposed during their unexpected—and extended—stay in Palm Beach.
Worth The Wait
After two wedding postponements in both 2020 and 2021, Abigail and Warren finally tied the knot in an intimate ceremony with friends and family.
On February 26, 2022, their loved ones gathered to not only see a wedding of two souls, but the beginning of a family of three. Abigail’s sister, who officiated the wedding, read letters from the bride and groom describing what their love meant to each of them. The highlight of the ceremony was when Georgia, Abigail’s daughter, recounted her many birthday wishes for a father, and how lucky she felt to be seeing her parents get married.
As Abigail shared:
DIANE VON FURSTENBERG ALWAYS TOLD ME, “IT IS UP TO YOU TO CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE” AND I FEEL LIKE OUR WEDDING CELEBRATION REALLY EMBODIED THAT SENTIMENT ON SO MANY LEVELS. IT WAS A LONG TIME COMING FOR ALL OF US, BUT IT WAS DEFINITELY WORTH THE WAIT.

I was so fortunate to be able to work with the unbelievably talented KT Merry. She captured all the joy and love at our wedding weekend. I love looking at the photos and seeing the celebration through her eyes.
've spent the past decade capturing love and chasing beauty across the globe, and I believe every story like yours is different and special, and deserves to be told exceptionally.
Drawing on years of experience in the fashion and editorial photography industry, my photographs are graceful, honest and boldly natural, while completely intentional. Whether it’s the opportunity to narrate the retelling of once-in-a-lifetime wedding days, or the ability to communicate issues of global importance, or all the stories in between, I look at photography as the method by which I get to leave the world a little better than I found it.
