Putting together our annual Palm Beach Brides edition of Wellington The Magazine is always an exciting time for our team. This year continues the love as we visit with Bacio Bacio Bridal Salon to discover the latest in bridal gown fashions, as well as expert jeweler Adam Yorke of Designer’s Touch Jewelry for great advice when choosing both your engagement ring and wedding bands. We heard from experts in the mortgage/real estate industry for couples to consider when beginning their new lives together. Of course, we also take a sneak peek at the hot trends for 2023 and share some of the fun and fancy tips when planning your special day. On our cover is Wellington couple Rachel and Kyle, who chose to begin their lives together with an intimate destination wedding.
     Hillary Dobbs, profiled this issue, is a name that many in Wellington’s equestrian community are familiar with. With an impressive junior and professional career, she was no stranger to the winner’s circle. But when graduation from Harvard and an unfortunate riding accident changed the course of her top-level journey, Dobbs found her way to new talents — coaching, being a wife and mother, and spearheading the equestrian division at Malvern Bank.
     This issue, we also feature ESK Golf Carts, where a family hobby became a successful business. Francisco and Francine Orozco, along with their sons Erick, Steven and Kevin, have always spent much of their free time working on and repairing machinery. They got so good at specifically fixing and refurbishing golf carts, that it has now evolved into a family venture named in honor of the three sons.
     Wellington Table this issue visits Bimini Twist, an Okeechobee Blvd. landmark that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month. This popular seafood restaurant has been a fine dining favorite of local residents and visitors alike for two decades. Finally, our Wellington Schools series continues with a profile of Equestrian Trails Elementary School Principal Michele Chorniewy. She aims to create resilient young learners through a nurturing and challenging school culture.
     As we go to press, the summer days have come to an end, and we welcome South Florida’s more temperate fall season. With that comes all the excitement of our horse-loving friends and the return of equestrian season. Be sure to watch for our annual Equestrian Season Preview issue of Wellington The Magazine coming next month. So many changes and improvements to not only the venue and facilities but to the show schedules that start earlier and last longer, allowing Wellington to continue to grow into the world’s most recognized equestrian capital.
