Bella Collina: Nicki and Matt

Soft roses, sunsets, and warm shining smiles are just a few of our favorite things. Nicki and Matt brought all of these things and more to the always gorgeous Bella Collina on their special day. Blush by Brandee Gaar effortlessly captured the couples style and love in every little detail. No laugh went unnoticed by Heather Rice Photography.

Nikki looked absolutely stunning in her lace gown complemented by the spring time hues of the bridesmaids’ dresses. We wanted to create a bouquet that was a perfect match for her. Soft blush roses coupled with pale yellow and pink peonies embodied every bit of sweet romance. A petite wreath of baby’s breath adorned the little flower girl as she accompanied the bride down the aisle.

The reception was picture perfect. Pretty blush hues popped against warm beige and deep chocolate tones blanketing the picturesque lawn. Guests found the key to their table at delightfully rustic seating card display. The tablescape was kept simple and elegant. The Lee James Floral Designs team incorporated the romantic spring time theme into the beautiful centerpieces. Clusters of white and pink roses dawned small pops of fresh baby’s breath. Candles in delicate crystal vases surrounded the lovely arrangements.

The cake was just as beautiful as the reception. Party Flavors Custom Cakes designed a gorgeous all white cake accented with a beautiful lace inspired motif. Once the sun set, beautiful lighting from Soundwave Entertainment kept the night going. Guests were encouraged to capture memories at the charming photo booth before they danced the night away.

Bethany carried a bold bouquet of pink peonies as she walked down the aisle. Her bridesmaids carried white and green bouquets which looked lovely with their hot pink dresses. We absolutely adore the monogrammed purses that Bethany gave to each of her maids–it was such an original idea!

A Chair Affair provided the most amazing rentals for the reception. Their glass and gold chargers paired wonderfully with navy and white linens. The Sugar Suite designed a jaw-dropping five tiered white cake with white and navy bows.

Maitland Art Center: Style Me Pretty Feature

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Father and BrideWe are thrilled to be featured on Style Me Pretty for one the most unique weddings we’ve played a part in. This wedding ceremony took place at the Maitland Art Center in Maitland, Florida and was followed by an intimate reception at 310 Lakeside Restaurant. The bride and groom celebrated their marriage with family and friends from across the world. They had guests from Japan, South Africa, Europe and Australia. Pietri Photography captured beautiful photographs from the day.Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bridal Gown

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bridal BouquetFor the bridal bouquet we used a King Protea, the national flower of South Africa, and other South African favorites like gardenias and eucalyptus. We love that our bride chose to add gardenias to her bouquet to keep with family tradition–how special! Her David’s Bridal gown was simply gorgeous, and the texture of the lace looked lovely with the bold shapes of her florals. The traditional Catholic ceremony took place in the roofless chapel at the Maitland Art Center. Instead of communion the priest gave a homily which compared a pineapple to the sweetness of marriage. Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Ceremony

Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, First KissCan you believe this entire wedding cost under $10,000? The bride’s mother-in-law brought table linens from South Africa, and Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals provided chair rentals for the day. Sprinkles Custom Cakes designed a traditional South African fruit cake for the reception. DJ Scott Thompson of Thompson Entertainment provided entertainment for the reception–not to mention a surprise visit from Elvis! Maitland Art Center, Pietri Photography, Lee James Floral Designs, Bouquet

Grand Bohemian: Melissa and Johnson Wedding

Melissa and Johnson married with the Grand Bohemian Hotel’s elegantly decorated ballroom in the background. Melissa’s dress wrapped around her like an ocean wave reaching for the shore. Our burgundy calla lily bridal bouquet mimicked the same graceful shapes and added a splash of color. The bridesmaid’s bouquets were made of white calla lilies with a dash of burgundy in the center.Grand Bohemian Hotel, Lee James Florist1

The reception continued the calla lily theme. Glass spheres encased the sweet-smelling flowers and their lime green vines, looking like spider webs or vines weaving through the vases. Taller glass centerpieces were crowned with hydrangeas with white calla lilies erupting through the top like water drops cascading down from a fountain.Grand Bohemaian Hotel, Lee James Florist a

Nothing declares laid back and daring more than a bride that has no problem wearing her favorite tennis shoes on the big day! The bouquet was a dreamy cloud of white with subtle pops of pale pinks and sage green. We kept the centerpieces simple and tall with a beautiful burst of white tulips at the top. RhodesStudios_BellaCollina_LeeJames_carlyandcorywedding cake The baking virtuosos at Party Flavors fashioned an exquisite cake. A playful splash of pastel pink danced against the simple white frosting while floral details added that extra flare. Carly and Cory’s wedding was splendidly unique. Everyone was tickled pink with intoxicating glee for the jubilant couple. We’re sure the couple will endure love and laughs for a lifetime.
