Actress Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello will showcase the splendor of The Breakers when they celebrate their wedding at the famed Palm Beach resort Sunday evening.
Originally built in Palm Beach by railroad mogul Henry Flagler in 1896, the current version of The Breakers was erected in 1926 in a mix of different Italian Renaissance styles.
Long a venue for charity balls and galas, The Breakers is well suited for big events like the wedding of Vergara, the highest-paid television actress, according to Forbes magazine.
Vergara presumably can afford the pricier accommodations at The Breakers.
The Imperial Suite, for example, is a 1,700-square-foot apartment with its own kitchen, living room and dining area, available for $4,250 per night.
The top two floors of The Breakers comprise the new Flagler Club, a luxurious hotel-within-a-hotel with a dedicated staff, private lounge and terrace. Suites at the Flagler Club start $2,800 per night and require a three-night minimum purchase.
The Mediterranean ballroom, the most beautiful ballroom at The Breakers, is frequently the backdrop for big weddings, featuring large chandeliers and 15-foot windows with views of the Atlantic Ocean. [Palm Beach Post] — Mike Seemuth
