Rich Fall Tones: Matt and Nicole

Of course, each love story is special, but Matt and Nicole’s is a cut above the rest. Their story began six years ago, when they crossed paths while working at Hyatt. It took some time for Matt to convince Nicole of his feelings, but once he finally did, they knew they were meant to be!

From beginning to end, their Big Day was perfect, with Limelight Photography snapping the most precious moments every step of the way! Nicole made a gorgeous bride as she walked down the aisle at St. John Vianney Catholic Church. Matt, for his part, looked so proud and handsome as he waited for her at the altar.

Crafting this couple’s floral was such a fun, amazing experience! Everything was created using a palette of rich fall colors: burgundy, purple and orange. For the bride’s bouquet, we added some wonderful deep burgundy mini calla lilies, dahlia blooms, and pops of raspberry stock blooms and bold tangerine roses, with orange pin cushion protea as a finish. Her bridesmaids sported similar bouquets, matching the color and texture but scaled down in size.

For our stylish groom, we created a boutonniere with a deep burgundy mini calla lilly and seeded eucalyptus. They certainly made a striking couple as they exchanged vows!

Soon, it was time for the reception, and the newlyweds and their guests headed to the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront. The room had been elaborately decorated, with lots of gold touches, and the most beautiful soft, pink lighting. Floral centerpieces stood tall on the tables, sporting varied blooms in pinks, reds, purples, and creams.

After enjoying a delicious meal and the decadent cake by The Artistic Whisk, the couple and their guests spent the rest of the evening dancing till they were too tired to take another step. The joy and good cheer were palpable in the air as everyone said goodbye to the newlyweds. Congratulations, Matt and Nicole!

Cypress Grove Estate House: Julia and Matt

Outdoor weddings have their own unique charm, and Julia and Matt’s wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House was absolutely gorgeous! Planned and Designed by RW Events, the white and blush theme with pops of red and burgundy was definitely a hit!

The weather couldn’t have been more serene on the day of the wedding. Every photo captured by Best Photography came out beautifully, preserving every special moment for an eternity. Julia made a lovely bride, her fair hair twisted into a low updo, her gown simple, but elegant. All eyes were on her as she walked down the aisle, carrying her bouquet.

Her bouquet had been especially crafted with ranunculus floral, white O’Hara garden roses, and champagne roses, accented with dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus. For Matt, we created a matching boutonnière with white ranunculus and seeded eucalyptus.

Of course, we couldn’t forget the bridesmaids and groomsmen! Whereas Julia’s bouquet was made up of neutral whites and blush tones, her bridesmaids’ bouquets were created with vivid burgundy hydrangea, burgundy dahlia and ranunculus blooms, with champagne roses and accents or dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus. The resulting bouquets just popped against the bridesmaids’ blush gowns!

For the groomsmen’s boutonnières, we opted for ranunculus and seeded eucalyptus to match Matt’s own boutonnière, but swapped out the white for burgundy blooms that perfectly matched the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

After a sweet, romantic ceremony, it was time to celebrate the couple’s nuptials! The area had been decked out for the reception, with lots of pops of red and gold throughout the décor. Crimson cloth napkins rested atop shimmering gold chargers from A Chair Affair, complementing the lovingly-crafted centerpieces, created with burgundy and champagne blooms.

Classic White with Pops of Color: Meghan and Scott’s Bella Collina Wedding

Each and every couple is wonderful, but Meghan and Scott’s love is so pure and strong, it withstood a hurricane! Hurricane Matthew had us all wondering if this Bella Collina wedding would take place as scheduled, but the storm passed on, leaving beautiful weather behind!

Anna Christine Events planned the whole event with the utmost professionalism and care, resulting in an event that couldn’t have been more stunning. SNI Photography captured every unique and memorable moment, from the gorgeous sky to the shy smile on Meghan’s face as she walked down the aisle.

It was a classic white wedding, but we loved how we were able to incorporate some pops of color into the floral, like Meghan’s bouquet. Crafted with white hydrangea and open white and champagne garden roses, with merlot-wine ranunculus floral tucked in, along with wine and café au lait dahlia blooms throughout. We finished off the bouquet with some seeded eucalyptus and dusty miller, resulting in a variety of blooms that looked truly striking against our bride’s beautiful white gown.

Of course, we didn’t forget about our handsome groom! Scott opted for a classic look with a crisp black tuxedo, which we complemented with a boutonniere of ranunculus and dusty miller.

After a sweet, emotional ceremony, it was time to celebrate! This is a special couple, so, of course, their reception had to be just as special! The pure ivory décor at the reception was lovely, and it paired beautifully with the floral we created. Lush floral arrangements stood high on the tables, created with hydrangea, open roses in blush and champagne tones, more wine and café au lait dahlia, and burgundy snapdragons for an accent. We finished off the look with white dendrobium orchids that spilled over, with Italian Ruscus foliage and blooming seeded eucalyptus.

The sun shone brightly as the day began. All eyes were on Tyana as she walked down the aisle.

Blush and Gold at the Country Club of Orlando: Alexandra and Sam

You can never go wrong with a blush and gold wedding, and Alexandra and Sam’s wedding at the Country Club of Orlando is proof of that! Of course, Blush by Brandee Gaar’s brilliant planning must have also had something to do with the whole event turning out flawless!

The blush and gold tones created the perfect romantic vibe, and we had such a great time creating the floral; the pure creamy white blooms we used just contrasted and complemented the warmth of the blush and gold beautifully!

Alexandra looked like a heroine out of a fairytale as she walked down the aisle towards a grinning Sam, with a blush in her cheeks and her dark hair in a half-up, half-down style, so it cascaded down her shoulders and stood out against the white of her dress.

Her bridal bouquet had been lovingly crafted with white hydrangea blooms and white lissianthus floral, with white ranunculus blooms and beautiful white and champagne garden roses, all accented with seeded eucalyptus foliage, Italian ruscus and cascading tangerine vine. The result was a truly lovely and unique bouquet, just perfect for Alexandra!

The couple’s faces glowed with joy as they exchanged vows, and the party began almost as soon as the ceremony ended. The ceremony was lovely, to be sure, but the reception turned out to be a party to remember! The room was elegantly and flawlessly decorated, with plenty of hints of gold throughout, and lush floral centerpieces that towered atop the tables!

At the end of the day, there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that this was a wedding that all of us would remember forever, but there truly was nothing more beautiful than seeing the smiles on our newlyweds’ faces and their joy at beginning the next chapter of their lives.

Jessica was a vision in white as she walked down the aisle. LeJeune Hair and Makeup Artistry had twisted her black hair up into a beautiful updo, while her embellished sleeves glimmered in the sunlight. It was no wonder that all eyes were on her!

Her bouquet had been created with a color palette of whites and creams in mind, with hydrangea blooms and white and cream roses tucked in throughout, and white ranunculus and white lissianthus with dusty miller foliage for an accent.

It hardly seemed possible, but the reception was even more beautiful than the ceremony. Soft, warm lighting created an intimate, romantic aura, while the centerpieces adorning the tables had been carefully designed to complement the wedding party floral.

Being involved in this lovely wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House was such an honor for us. We love all of our couples, and that’s no secret, but Garianne and Matthew are just about the cutest couple you ever did see!

This wedding was unforgettable, and we know for a fact that Blush by Brandee Gaar’s expert planning had a big hand in that. By the Robinsons did a wonderful job capturing every special moment of the day, and more importantly, they captured every smile and blush.

The day began with beautiful weather, just perfect for an elegant Southern wedding. We had such a great time designing the florals for this wedding. Garianne and Matthew wanted blues and pinks for little pops of color throughout the décor, resulting in a beautiful, totally unique look.

Garianne turned heads as she walked down the aisle, carrying a light pastel bouquet designed with white, cream and blush pink flowers. We added different textures and colors to create a bouquet that would contrast wonderfully against our bride’s dress, opting for hydrangea with cream and champagne roses tucked in here and there. Matthew’s boutonnière, on the other hand, was simple and stylish, with silver-blue succulents and seeded eucalyptus for an accent.

Our bridesmaids had equally eye-catching bouquets of their own, with similar bouquets to Garianne’s – with the addition of more silver-blue succulents as a focal. These bouquets paid homage to both the bride and groom’s looks, and the result was absolutely stunning!

After a lovely ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests celebrated with a gorgeous, fun reception. The floral centerpieces atop the tables drew the eye without looking over-the-top, with cream and white flowers and bright fuschia flowers for a bold pop of color. More fuschia blooms were the perfect accent to the naked cake created by Two Sweets Bake Shop.
