Many little girls dream of their wedding day: the perfect location, the beautiful dress, the handsome fiance. One woman who grew up in our area remembered that dream and made it happen and she invited Fox29 and all of you to her dream wedding. 

Charla Metzker has always known she would walk down the aisle here at the Breakers. She first visited the Palm Beach Hotel when she moved here as a little girl

"It was tropical and the Mizner building and we actually walked into the circle ballroom and I was blown away."

The former dancer for Ballet Florida got engaged a year ago to a Chicago anesthesiologist she met online. Michael Whitely popped the question and Charla got on the phone...

"I literally called the Breakers the next day because I knew where I wanted to have the wedding. I knew where I wanted to get married and this was the 4th date we were able to get. We tried three other dates and they said "we're booked, we're booked, we're booked."

After securing the Breakers, Charla went looking for her dream dress: a $5,000 Monique Lhuilier. She also bought Manolo Blahnik shoes..

"Which I couldn't resist. I think they'll look great with jeans after."

She rented this $85,000 diamond bracelet from Provident Jewelers. But luckily, she already had the $8,500 Chanel earrings.

"Michael, take her...please!"

But her dream doesn't end there.. The Breakers just recently went into partnership with Sylvia Wienstock, the world-renowned cake designer out of New York, and Charla's $270 per person dinner included the Wienstock cake.

"She's like okay, I have a vision, I'm going to sketch it for you and I'll fax it to you. We're doing square tables at the wedding, so the cake is square and she's incorporating every flower that we're using on the wedding in different tiers of the cake... and apparently the cake flew here last night from New York, which is just crazy."

Crazy... but beautiful, elegant, sophisticated... All the things Charla wanted and more for her special day...

"It's just to have the people that mean the most to me around me in a beautiful setting just having a great time. Honestly it's that simple."

Charla and Michael honeymooned in Anguilla in the British West Andies.
