Cypress Grove Estate House: Garianne and Matthew

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.

The event began with a sweet, beautiful ceremony, just perfect for the couple, with a chain of greenery and a few vintage lanterns leading the way to the hall. Jennifer and Richard both glowed with happiness as they said their I Do’s, Jennifer resplendent in a strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline, while Richard cut an impressive figure his gray suit.

For Richard’s boutonniere, we kept it simple but impactful with white ranunculus, accented with dusty miller foliage. It was especially created to complement Jennifer’s bridal bouquet, which was lovingly crafted with café au lait dahlia blooms, white ranunculus, peach-toned garden roses and a finish of dusty miller foliage.

Hilton Orlando: Donna and George

Who says life can’t be like a fairytale? Donna and George’s love story is just that. The couple first met when George was vacationing in Orlando, visiting friends and family, where he met Donna. The couple talked back and forth via email once George returned to Arizona, and the rest is history!

Donna and George’s wedding at the Hilton Orlando was sweet and beautiful without being over-the top; perfect for this cute couple. An Affair to Remember did an amazing job planning the whole event, as usual. Kristen Weaver Photography was there to capture each and every magical moment, from the couple’s first look on the stairs to everyone’s smiles as Donna walked down the aisle. Even the aisle had been adorned just for her entrance, with pure white petals strewn along the sides.

Donna made a picture-perfect bride as she happily said her I Do’s, carrying a unique bouquet crafted with her favorite color, purple. Her bridal bouquet was lovingly crafted with Picasso mini calla lily blooms, expressed sunflower blossoms, fragrant purple stock and purple lissianthus, with merlot dahlia, cymbidium orchids and seeded eucalyptus for texture.

Rosen Shingle Creek: Oriana and Gabe

Everything about a wedding is beautiful, but there’s nothing better than seeing a couple joining together. Oriana and Gabe’s wedding at Rosen Shingle Creek was stunning, not least because their love for one another shined through every moment.

The Busy Bee Events & Design did a marvelous job planning the whole affair, with Misty Miotto Photography there to capture every tiny detail.

The sweet, intimate ceremony took place at St. James Cathedral. Oriana made a stunning bride; all eyes were on her as she walked down the aisle. Her hair tumbled down her shoulders in loose waves, her makeup soft and natural, and her long veil and gorgeous dress made her look like a goddess.

Of course, a goddess has got to have a heavenly bouquet. For Oriana, we designed a bridal bouquet with white hydrangea blooms, accented with open white garden roses and white ranunculus.

After Oriana and Gabe said their I Do’s, they headed to Rosen Shingle Creek for the reception, where guests and the newlyweds alike admired the lush floral centerpieces atop the tables, the beautiful (and tasty) cake, and gorgeous, soft lighting.

Winter Park Racquet Club: David and Ilana

Every wedding is beautiful, but David and Ilana’s Jewish wedding at Winter Park Racquet Club was special. With traditional Jewish customs incorporated into the ceremony and reception and Blush by Brandee Gaar coordinating it all, their big day was bound to be a memorable affair.

Sivan Photography perfectly captured every moment and detail of the evening, from David and Ilana getting ready to the signing of their marriage contract. Honoring tradition, David and Ilana signed their marriage contract before the ceremony, under the guidance of Rabbi Rick. Immediately after, David and his mother lowered Ilana’s veil.

Ilana made a gorgeous bride as she walked down a petal-strewn aisle towards the chuppah, carrying a unique bouquet created with a mix of white and lavender tones. Roses, Dahlia blooms, freesia, and lilac resulted in a beautiful and fragrant bouquet, perfectly complementing David’s lavender rose and dusty miller boutonniere.

The couple were wed under an elaborate chuppah, designed with an array of vibrant purple and blue hydrangea, lavender, peach and soft pink roses. Stock in deep purple, pink heather, and cascading purple orchids created an overall aura of earthy refinement as they made their vows.

David and Ilana’s reception was wonderful, with soft lighting by Kaleidoscope Lighting lending a gentle glow to the room. Lush floral centerpieces, featuring more of the same blooms used for the chuppah, rested in gold vessels and were surrounded by gold mercury candles for a romantic effect.

After a delicious dinner and the cake-cutting, it was time to dance. In true Jewish fashion, David and Ilana joined hands with their loved ones to dance the night away. And of course, the Hora, or Chair Dance, was a must.

Congratulations, David and Ilana! We were so honored to be a part of your beautiful wedding, and we wish you all the best for your future!

Reunion Resort: Shannon and Greg

Every wedding is unique in its own way, but Shannon and Greg’s wedding at the Reunion Resort was truly memorable! The couple opted for a peacock theme, which Blush by Brandee Gaar coordinated perfectly!

Peacocks are beautiful, exotic creatures. Yet as a wedding theme, it could’ve been easily overdone. Fortunately, Shannon and Greg had the perfect vision in mind. For the most part, the couple stuck to neutral colors – including a classic white dress for Shannon and black dresses for the bridesmaids – while using the perfect peacock blue for a gorgeous pop of color.

Shannon made a stunning bride as she walked down the aisle. For her bridal bouquet, we designed a bouquet of white mini calla lilies and peacock feathers, creating the perfect complement to her white Ines Di Santo dress. The bridesmaid bouquets, meanwhile, were beautiful arrangements of blue hydrangeas, Picasso mini calla lilies, purple lisianthus, green cymbidium orchids and seeded eucalyptus.

Ritz Carlton: Elizabeth and Boyd

We took a trip down to Ferngully for Elizabeth and Boyd’s wedding at the Ritz Carlton Orlando, and we loved every moment of it! Lisa Stoner Events went above and beyond for the planning of this event, and it showed in every detail, each beautifully captured by Jensen Larson Photography.

It’s been a long time since we’ve had this much fun with the flowers at a wedding. To go along with the Ferngully theme, we kept the flowers big, plentiful, and colorful. Boyd looked extremely handsome, choosing to complement his navy tuxedo with an orchid boutonniere that matched Elizabeth’s bouquet. Elizabeth looked gorgeous and free, the purple flowers in her curls and the colorful orchids in her bouquet striking against her pure white strapless gown and long veil. The black tuxedos and blush gowns donned by the groomsmen and bridesmaids were perfect for balancing out the pops of color throughout the florals and décor.

The flower girls carried unique floral baskets, carefully crafted to go with the theme. Grand lanterns adorned the aisles as they walked past, providing an aura of earthy warmth. Elizabeth and Boyd said their I Do’s beneath a lush floral arch, surrounded by their loved ones and tiny lights. The venue glowed; the lighting by FyerFly Productions had a big part in bringing Ferngully to life.
