A look inside the luxury location
of Sofia Vergara's wedding
The resort at which Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello will celebrate their wedding was originally built by Henry Flagler in 1896. The present building opened in 1926 after two previous incarnations burned down. Constructed in less than a year in a pastiche of various Italian Renaissance styles, the resort is frescoed, tapestried and gilded with historical antecedents. The magnificent barrel-vaulted lobby is a replica of the great hall in a Genovese palazzo.
For years the scene of Palm Beach galas and charity balls, The Breakers is accustomed to accommodating crowds as well as the security expected at the wedding of the actress Forbes says is television’s most highly-paid.
Here’s a peek inside the luxury resort:
Fit for a Hollywood star (or a Wall Street one-percenter) with a price tag to match. The Imperial Suite at The Breakers is a palatial 1,700-square-foot apartment with its own kitchen, dining area and living room as well as a spectacular view, for $4,250 per night.
When The Breakers' regular rooms aren't posh or private enough, there's now a new option for the world's wealthiest travelers.
On the hotel's top two floors, the new Flagler Club is an ultra-luxury hotel-within-the hotel, with its own staff and private lounge and terrace, designed by Adam Tihany, who also designed the hotel's HMF cocktail lounge.
Rooms start at $2,100 per night, suites at $2,800, with a three-night minimum.
Palms line the South Pool, which looks out over the Atlantic Ocean.
The Seafood Bar includes views of the ocean and a bar aquarium full of tropical fish.
Although the Ponce de Leon ballroom is The Breakers’ largest, the Italian Renaissance-style Mediterranean ballroom is the prettiest. This popular spot for large weddings is wrapped in painted walls lit by huge chandeliers and the light from arched 15-foot windows overlooking the Atlantic.
Protected on all sides from ocean breezes, The Breakers’ Palm Courtyard is an outdoor oasis in the center of the resort.
